Darwin, the great seer, predicts all

This is fun. In a spoof on all the biblical numerology hocus-pocus in bookshops, Stellar Alchemy produces a convincing series of future predictions all taken from Darwin's The Origin of Species. The idea that God would want to speak in codes has always made me ask Christians why God doesn't simply hover above the news reporters on Fox News (definitely not on CNN) and announce his presence each night as lightning bolts come forth from his head. (Or better yet, hover above each person on the planet 24/7--in which case even hard-nosed skeptics like myself might feel a need to revise our current model of reality.) Evidently, God is more of the crossword-puzzle nerdish sort of deity, constantly at pains to hide important messages in backward diagonals of the King James translation.
