Humans spent thousands upon thousands of years trying to unlock this mystery, but then they discovered science and actually figured out how shit worked. Unfortunately science hasn't described absolutely everything to the level of detail that Wortfish requires, so we should really just pack up and go back to reading tea leaves and praising our creator for being so good at appearing to not be there.

You're not the only one who regards the mindset on display as pathetic and infantile, I assure you.

There really is something just so sad, about wanting a limited, parochial mythological entity to be real, to the point of preferring the masturbation fantasies of piss-stained nomads, who were too stupid to count correctly the number of legs that an insect possesses, over centuries of diligent, honest inquiry that has bestowed so many treasures of real, substantive knowledge upon us. It's the mentality of a Trump-level nappy shitter writ large.

Plus, if you have to lie to yourself and others, to the pathological extent observable in the world of corporate creationism (let's be under no illusions here, creationism in America is a corporate scam, erected to bilk the ignorant in order to fund lavish lifestyles for the professional liars for doctrine), and you end up being compelled to peddle those manifest lies to an embarrassing extent on globally accessible public media, then the condition involved is a florid clinical disease.
