This Theme Sucks!

Postby Captain Goddammit » Sat Sep 06, 2008 10:15 pm

I can't believe they could have sunk to this new low level. "Evolution"... that's so offensive to Creationists! And what if you happen to be De-Evolutionary?
Clearly, no attempt was made to accommodating every possible school of thought.
I'm not going next year in protest of this theme. The hell if I'm contributing my ticket money to support this intolerable new direction the event has headed. I say we ALL boycott Burning Man because of next year's theme!

Did anyone of you visit my midnight classroom?

Unfortunately, my student took the picture before I finished my treatise on the irrationality of evolution, atheism, and agnosticism.

I think it's a great theme (as good as any).

personaly i beleave in evolution and dont beleave in creation or god or any of that hog wash.

but...

you are 100 percent correct. burning man is suposed to represent acceptance of all. most people would think people who beleave in creation dont beleave in acceptance. i was raised as a hardcore lutheran christian and we accepted people who didnt beleave because some things could have been lost in translation. i may now try to incoperate some non evolutionary theme in our theme camp next year

thanks for the insight

I love the captain GD.

I also love how for some folks, words or phrases like evolution or american dream only have one meaning.

Postby Marscrumbs » Mon Sep 08, 2008 12:12 pm

2009 is an vast improvement on the American Dream and streets named for cars. Consider this a personal or collective evolution of Burning Man if you will and not a Darwin Lamarck historical show.

Take a step back

Postby PandaKiss » Mon Sep 08, 2008 12:55 pm

In my opinion "Evolution" does not necessarily apply to the theory of evolution, Look the word up in a dictionary; one definition is as follows:
"a process of gradual, peaceful, progressive change or development, as in social or economic structure or institutions. "
I feel like this is truly what direction the BM is headed for and is very much in keeping with what the community stands for.

Step back, take a deep breath... it seems like alot of people are just looking for ways to be critical. I admit that 08 was my first year so my perspective may be different, but if all of the old school burners give up on us then who will be there to help us 'evolve' into the kind of community that you can be proud to be a part of?

Why do you insist on continually pointing it out?

Stop pointing it.

Actually, as a Queer Fundamentalist Christian Meth-Head, I too am terribly terribly jacked about this recent slander of the word of our God Almighty, and his one begotten son, Jesus H. Christ.

Next thing you know, PRAYER will be banned at Burning Man, and THEN WHAT?

NO TEMPLE?

I'm sorry, i was channeling the former head of the Evangelicals in Colorado.

i meant to say that as a Straight, Satanist, Drunkard and Krack-Head, i think i'm evolving as we speak....

I think this years theme will be awesome. And from the looks of it, it wasn't meant to "knock down" any creationists, but in the reality of things, how many creationists are their to evolutionists?

I vote for the replacement of the Temple with a Biotech Research Facility - everyone can place a sample of biological material in the BRF, the fuse is lit, and we all watch the fun.
