What's causing the hordes of animals to die? (contributor post)

I'd like you to post this to find out what people think of this.  I don't mean to be rude but there's got to be a better explanation than this.


Do people really believe this?  What is causing the birds and fish and crabs to die off so weirdly?

  1. Sam says that this is nothing but plain stupidity, probably not worth commenting on. Until more conclusive evidence is available, Sam is resisting the strong temptation to blame it on corporate pollution.

    According to a new book by Daniel Aske, We Have Met the Enemy: Self-Control in an Age of Excess, there are more than 2.5 million deaths in the U.S. annually. Wing nuts view these death's as God's divine punishment when in reality if people had healthier lifestyles at least half of these deaths could be prevented. The youth can avoid facing the consequences of their unhealthy lifestyles, but at some point they have to pay the piper. Akst say people eat too much food, spend too much money, have too much sex, and it is these and other related factors that shortens their lives, and God does not have a damn thing to do with it. However, and this is the kicker, the problem is not that people lack self control, there are just too many damn temptations out there.

    Take Hugh Hefner for example, Sam understands the reason he can't get his grubby old paws off attractive young women. The old fucker is surrounded by them 24/7. Too many damn temptations.

    Akst also examines our tendency to blame everything (God) and everyone (bad professors, racism, etc) except ourselves. He cites a woman he met who blamed excess weight on genetics, fast food, advertising, and high-fructose corn syrup—all while polishing off two plates of waffles and cream cheese.

    As Jamie Fox says in his hit song, blame it on the alcohol, God, whatever! The devil made me do it! So God whacked innocent birds and made me wolf down a plate of baby back ribs and a sugar content coke.
