Unnatural Selection

Finished Kraken on the great alignment of 12/3/12. Even though it's set in an alternate magicked London, the theme of apocalypse is the driver, and the antagonists are the Evolutionists vs. the Creationists. Not so different from our "real life" world, really. The trial of the century, the State of Tennessee vs. Scopes. We thought it was over, but it can never be over, as long as that book is around.

Things have gotten overly syncy lately - all my favorite symbols are acting up. In Kraken, Billy the Evolutionist who works at Darwin Center, finds sanctuary in the London embassy of the Sea. The Lonely Gay had his day in court last week, and I recalled how Julian Assange found asylum in the Ecuador embassy in London.

Ecuador includes the Galápagos Islands.
The islands are geologically young and famed for their vast number of endemic species, which were studied by Charles Darwin during the voyage of the Beagle. His observations and collections contributed to the inception of Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection.
Var and I took a big load of household trash to the dump on Alignment Day. We waited inline with our rented U-haul pickup for the next available slot, and as soon as we pulled up, a big black truck with Spartan Concrete left, so we took the Spartan's place. Get that ball into the End Zone.

SJSU - Jesus!
Our own refuse included the remnants of a plywood pyramid that I had made, back when I was trying to build a home-made time machine in the garage. The sides of the pyramid are equilateral triangles, and Var laid them into the pickup truck so they overlapped like a Star of David. I'm not sure what we were carrying in the back of our truck, was it the Torah, or British Israelism, or Christianity or what, but whatever it was, it was an old pyramid scheme and we had no use for it anymore. So into the Great Recycler it went.

I only mention British Israelism because that was the day the Royals announced their latest spawn, and we all know they think they are the blood decedents of Jesus. And Israel is in the news again, killing more Arabs.

The Star of David is the symbol of Jehovah - God to some, Demiurge to others - the deity of the Middle East. The Spartans are Greeks, the cunning victors in the Trojan War. Talk about a clash of Titans!

A usual, I have no idea what to make of these unusually overt symbols.
