Starbuck investigates... Creationism!
Starbuck [17:56] Comments: 4 []
With the concept of creationism in all its forms having ever-greater repercussions around the world, as the art of aDarwinism enjoys a renaissance within ever-expanding sections of the religious community, I felt it was time to instigate an in-depth exploration into the reasons for its resurgence.

I've looked long and hard at the many possible factors behind it's recent revival within Christianity (the religion that I have most knowledge of), and I believe that I have found the root cause for the retrogressive belief amongst Christians in the literal verity of the the Old Testament.

Def Leppard.

In 1987 the Leppard released the album "Hysteria", knowing all too well the "religious hysteria" that they would subliminally seed within their young fans' minds with the opening track "Women".

oh we ooh
Ooh wee ooh

In the beginning
God made the land
Then He made the water and creatures, then He made man

He was born with a passion, love and hate
A restless spirit with a need for a mate
But there was somethin' that was missin', somethin' lost
So he came with the answer, here's what it cost

One part love, one part wild
One part lady, one part child
I give you

Women! women! - Lots of pretty women
Men! men! - They can't live without them
Women! women! - Lots of pretty women
Men! men! - They can't live without them

And in the garden, lust began
The animal instinct, the wanton man
She fed him with a hunger, an appetite
And fillin' with emotion he took a bite

It was one part love, one part child
One part lover, one part wild
I give you

Women! women! - Lots of pretty women
Men! men! - They can't live without them
Women! women! - Lots of pretty women
Men! men! - They can't live without them

Skin on skin
Let the love begin

[guitar solo]

It was one part love, one part wild
One part lover, one part child
A whole lotta fire, a little bit of ice
A whole lotta somethin' you can't sacrifice
I give you

Hair, eyes, skin on skin
Legs - Legs
Thighs - Thighs

What's that spell?
Etc etc this bits fucking rubbish...
Oh! oh! oh!
Oh! oh! oh! Eh?

Women - Women
Callin' every girl
Women women
All around the world
Women - Women!
Oh, we can't live without them
Women women

[guitar solo] Again.
Further proof, if needed, was found within the cassette inlay - they thanked one of the crew (renowned producer Mutt Lange if I recall correctly) for the "rad guitar sound" they'd created for the record.
Rad leads to radical, a call from the band for their fans to radicalise in their beliefs.

Lastly, drummer Rick Allen only had one arm. That can surely only be a miracle.

Def Leppard went on to release their call-to-arms anthem "Armgaddon It" ("I'm a getting it"). Armageddon, the scene of the final battle between the forces of good and evil, prophesied in the New Testament to occur at the end of the world.

I'd rather be a Pogue. Cheers!

Surely mentioning Rick Allen and then 'call-to-arms' in the next line is a tad insensitive?

More like 'A Farewell to Arm(s)'!
