Half of the people on this planet have a BELOW AVERAGE I.Q.! (Hint: what does average mean?) In a developing story from Kentucky, the Creation Museum is running out of money due to declining attendance, bringing their “Ark Encounter” project to a stand-still because of a lack of funding. “At the end of the day young earth creationism requires you to throw out pretty much everything we know about science,” says Josh Rosenau of the National Center for Science Education. “We would just need one piece of evidence...” “We would need the fossil that swam from one layer to another, we would need evidence that the universe is not expanding, we would need evidence that the stars appear to be far away but they’re not. We would need evidence that rock layers can somehow form in 4000 years… We would need evidence you can reset atomic clocks and keep neutrons from becoming protons.” We would need a significantly higher I.Q. over on the Right.

I have a friend who teaches music. He was asked to evaluate a young piano student. So he went to a recital somewhat like a downsized version of this thing: He didn't recall the title of the composition but he said it "was like listening to a run-away sewing machine that had been recently over-lubricated," A kind of thug who was at the recital walked up to my friend and said: "that boy played the piano without a single error." "No," my friend commented. "His error was that he played the composition far too fast." The thug said: "I'll pay $100,000 to the teacher that even TRIES to teach my son to play that song on the piano that fast." "Oh!" said Dennis. "His lessons start next Monday afternoon. here is my card."

To Illustrate my point, I will start here. ONE perspective. It may be another 'through the looking glass (mirror) Or NOT... When it comes to "Science Fiction Studies," Philip K. Dick is a subject unto himself. That's a second perspective. Between Faith and Melancholy: Irony and the Gnostic Meaning of Dick's "Divine Trilogy" That's a third perspective. How about between LSD and a bottle of Thunderbird - the world of Philip K. Dick's journey through the Bay Area? That's a forth perspective. HERE That's a fifth perspective (other than Thunderbird). So what? As I have often said: "Perception is perfect in that it consistently FAILS to inform us of reality." "And Philip K. Dick Wept" is another must read - I just refuse to rip it off. Go read it for yourself. So, did Philip K. Dick write the Matrix or did the Matrix write Philip K. Dick? I don't see the difference.

I understand Americans - including Alaskans - may not have more pressing issues (pun on 'reading). To curry favor, curry flavor.
