Over at The Panda’s Thumb is a prayer for the so-called intelligent design believers:
Our Intelligent Designer,
Who art in the unspecified-good-place,
Unknown be Thy name.
Thy flagella spin, Thy mousetraps snap,
On Earth, as it is in the
Give us each day our unchecked apologetic.
And forgive us our invidious comparisons,
As we smite those iniquitous Darwinists
And lead us not into encounters with people
Who ask us to state our theory,
But deliver us from biologists
Who know what we’re up to.
For Thine is the irreducible complexity,
And the wiggly parts of bacterial bottoms,
And the inapplicable theorems,
Now and forever.
Has about as much chance of working as any other prayer I suppose. That is to say, no chance at all.
(PS: Checkout the comments section at Panda’s Thumb for some more humorous prayers.)
