Retardacious should be a word:

Yes, the Bible says there will be signs involving the sun and moon (24%, 70 Votes)

What an absurdly melodramatic name for a lunar eclipse.

For those who prefer not giving WND more clicks, Archive.org mirror. The article itself is typical WND-grade brain rot. There does seem to be a poll at the end that might be amusing to Fark up; alas, it requires creating an account and giving an email address for them to spam.

* No, they're a message from the Big Bang

The last two elaborated "yes" responses are currently leading. Depressing, but not shocking.

Wow, I never get to do this when it comes to WND articles, but

the author of "Blood Moons: Decoding the Imminent Heavenly Signs."

BWAHAHAHAHAHA! You stupid motherfarkers. You stupid, stupid motherfarkers. What is wrong with you?

If you live in a world with no concept of astronomy or meteorology and see that the full moon is red, you're justified in thinking it's creepy. If you live in a world where it's been known, scheduled, and acknowledged that the full moon will be red for clearly explained and predictable reasons, and that the redness is as regular as clockwork just like the full moon itself, you are a stupid idiot.

My vote, except they aren't "random" per say, unless you count the N-Body problem random. Technically random quantum fluctuations can affect their orbits, but over thousands of years. This eclipse/blood moon was fully predictable hundreds of years ago with todays math.

"I believe that the blood moons have great historic and prophetic significance just as they did following 1948 and 1967. In the book of Joel it mentions three times about the sun and the moon going dark and in context it also mentions Divine wrath against all countries that want to divide or part the land of Israel," he said.

Hey dipshiat... Do you know what the blood moon REALLY signifies? It signifies a total lunar eclipse.The moon is completely blocked by the Earth's shadow, and the light is filtering through the atmosphere to illuminate the moon. It's not a "warning from God", and the very farking fact that they know the next 3 are going to be the same, and when they're going to happen should tell you that it is a totally NATURAL phenomenon. You think God checks with scientists to set up his schedules, or something?
 
2014-04-15 12:28:33 PM  
I love when these nutcases "forget" to account natural phenomenon as God's wrath whenever it is convenient, like the sudden hurricane with the last Republican convention, or the drought in all the red states, etc....

Oh man these fundies are completely insane.  Obviously the red moon is a sign from the moon goddess Arma that blood sacrifices must be performed before the solstice or this year's harvest will be completely wiped out.
 
2014-04-15 12:31:11 PM  
There is a lot of stupid in this world. Unfortunately, this sort of thing doesn't seem uncommon enough to consider us an intelligent species.

Tribalistic and superstitious...yes.

2014-04-15 12:34:15 PM  
Setting aside the fact that these eclipses are precisely predicted well in advance and not random, the non-fact that one of said eclipses has anything to do with a president of a country on Earth simply beggars belief because why would this deity use an eclipse to say something about executive orders? Why would the deity care about something as trivial as executive orders when there are real problems all around this planet and presumably many others as yet unknown to man. I think it all boils down to "Sure is convenient how their deity hates all the same things they do."

No, they're not scary.

WND is no more scary than Miss Cleo - they're just selling dumbassed shiat to gullible rubes.
And the people who actually believe the things that website spouts are to pitiable to be feared.  And the ones who actually spend money on their books and DVD's - they're just too damn sad to elicit any other response.

Gullible rubes in large numbers always reach a critical mass of stupid and violent at some point. It takes one charismatic leader to send them over the edge. Yes, they are scary.

It's absolutely common enough to prove human intelligence.  Only a sentient being can be so stupid.

My dog has never sent Joe Farrah twenty bucks to learn more about the link between the Blood Moon and Bob's short-form.

Apophenia is more correlated with schizoid tendencies, which do not preclude high general intelligence. AKA: "crazy isn't the same as stupid".

At least one measure of tendency to apophenia appears correlated to religiosity; see (doi:10.1348/000712608X396585).

I'm glad that other Farkers have pointed out the need for things like Cosmos as stupid shiat like TFA are way too common in the year 2014.

What's sad is communication satellites and all the other supporting technologies of the internet make it possible to broadcast such ignorance on a scale impossible otherwise.
