AMAZING NEWS: 9/27/5784*

*Today’s date is rendered according to the Hebrew calendar on this 4th night of Hannukah.  For your elucidation, the year is derived from Maimonides (Jewish scholar and creator of a hierarchy of charity) who determined that the year of creation was 3761 BCE.  And now you know why some creationists believe the Earth is only 6,000 years old.  Which is ridiculous, of course.  Everyone knows that the simulation we’re inhabiting was created just a handful of years ago when some computer geeks got too much into the eggnog.

Today’s news is actually being brought to you on 12/10/23…IF you subscribe to some approximation of reality.
