Headlines Like This Tick Me Off

Sorry, they do: “Is this Supernatural Event a Sign from God?

This is another article on what I just covered four days ago about blood moons and Jewish holidays and just covered on my podcast. But that’s not what ticks me off.

It’s the term “supernatural.” “Supernatural” is when something is “attributed to some force beyond scientific understanding or the laws of nature” (Apple’s built-in dictionary). We’re talking about lunar eclipses here. Those are not supernatural. We do not live in the 11th century. Well, maybe all some WND writers, editors, CEOs, readers, and commenters do, but the rest of the world the non-Islamic world typically doesn’t.

This just shows a profound lack of thinking and any scientific literacy. More evidence that it’s conservatives and Bible thumpers who contribute to the dumbing down of America.
