When one picks up the morning newspaper, or their iPad, to see what's happening in the world (since the evening before), one is greeted by unimaginable craziness, sheer insanity in bold print.
The world as we know it may be ending, but not from any Mayan calculations. More accurately the end of the world you have known is from the mental and moral decline in 'thinking' human beings.
How, you ask?
When you stop at the next red light, your road neighbor might just be a furry one! Or your new next-door neighbor is Ms Rhesus. Or your kid comes home with a new religion?
More?, The New England Aquarium Rescue Program is now shipping cold turtles to Florida for a warm vacation (even though there are killer tornadoes roaming neighborhoods).
More, you say? One headline reads,
"Ikea monkey should have 'right to choose' where he lives, says owner. The owner of a monkey caught wandering outside an Ikea store in Toronto says the tiny primate should have the "right to choose" who he wants to live with..."
What is the name of this rhesus, none other than "Darwin". A new "fashionista"
So Darwinism has finally eclipsed/morphed into monkeys moving into the apartment next door, and perhaps becoming your neighbor. A "rhesus macaque," that is, or maybe a Zombie. What else?
Darwin's 'mother' says, "He needs his mother like a child needs his mother," she was quoted by the National Post as saying, adding to the Globe and Mail: "How do we know what he needs unless he's given the right to choose? I think he should be given the right to choose. If he chooses something else than me, that's fine. For me, it has never been about me, it has always been about him."
"He was captured by animal control officers and moved to a primate sanctuary, but today his ('mother') said Darwin should have the right to choose, and revealed she is considering taking legal action."
Speaking of animal rights,
Auckland, New Zealand, can teach us a thing or two, or:
“Our dogs may be a motley bunch, but they’re all smart and they’re all lovable,” ... The Driving Dogs program was organized by SPCA of Auckland to show that dogs that have been abandoned and abused are smart, trainable and worthy of adoption. Porter is considered “the world’s first driving dog,” See amazing photos here.
Here's one citizen's reaction to the headlines about the Mayan end of the world craziness (prepare to laugh your wig off):
If you don't believe the world as you knew it is coming to an end, you may want to reconsider after watching these Canadian interview here and here.
