More Dilettante Searches: Really, Plagues?!

Related searches today (I’m ignore the 90(!) other searches about dead birds and fish and the bible since I covered that yesterday here and here):

  • does the bible say anything about plagues on birds and fish
  • plague of the bible in arkansas
  • old testament/dead birds
  • biblical plagues 2011

Okay, for clarification, a dilettante is:

  1. A person who claims an area of interest, such as the arts, without real commitment or knowledge.

So when people are so out of touch with the Bible that (a) they haven’t a clue what the plagues of Egypt were (they think it involved fish and birds), (b) they don’t even realize that the plagues involves LIVING creatures (flogs, gnats, locusts, wild beasts) and not dead ones (particularly, birds and fish), and (c) the only reason people seem to care is because they think it’s the end of the world, I am fairly certain that the label ‘dilettante’ applies.  So, let’s face it, everyone who is currently searching the interwebs for answers from the Bible about plagues involving dead fish and birds will ultimately be disappointed and, as well, shall be labeled dilettantes by those of us who were interested in the Bible before we feared for our lives.

And if you’re one of those who think the world is ending as a result of this, or you believe in a massive government cover-up related to this incident, you’re not just a dilettante, but you’re probably also crazy.

On the bright side, a some smart people searched these:

  • why birds falling won’t end the world
  • how common are mass bird deaths?

Kudos to you smart people!  You are asking the right sorts of questions!

  1. […] For those concerned citizens out there who think this is the end of the world:  Don’t worry.  There is nothing biblical about it. […]
