Nice move jackass, now look at the mess we are left with
In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.

Our collective history or written account of humanity's story is a fictive imagining with and without substance. Acknowledging the half-life of the metaphor when compared against the cumulative knowledge structures we now know categorically demand acknowledgement and distance from the dogmas they demand. For me, this a bridge over the troubled waters of science and the humanities moving in productive counterpoint and counterfactual imagining.
