The Saint of Science

It’s hard growing up in a House of Evil Queens when you have a conscience and must uphold the integrity of Science and Atheism. This is Sweet Blossom’s story.

 

Atheist Utopia Declares: “We Have Cured the poison of Religion. With the Help of Science, Racism is next.”

 

Breaking News: The most popular and beautiful princess in Cadabra wants to talk about social change. But Blossom must be ready to do some serious adulting if she wants to introduce progressive politics to a polarized society, like the Commonwealth of the Pink Sky. Will she take her political idealism to the next level and join the ongoing Pinkian Revolution? Can she influence the Queen for the better?

(7:00, Fairy Tale Time, Cadabra)-Princess Sweet Blossom, the self-professed “Princess of Candy”, and second-in-line heir to the Queen Darwin Dynasty, has made her agenda known throughout her kingdom and all the way across Cadabra. In order for society to reach a Utopian existence, racism and religion must go.

“We’ve already eradicated religion from the Commonwealth,” Blossom explains. “Religion divides people. Religion starts wars. A strong belief in the morality of Science was the only way to destroy the hate of religion. In the Commonwealth, we showed the people of Cadabra how to live without a God. Now we want to show them how Love can unite us all, regardless of skin color or species.”

But does Queen Darwin IV, Blossom’s mother, share her daughter’s progressive viewpoints? Many Cadabra journalists still claim that the Palace of Saints and the Darwin Dynasty still represent a long line of “Evil Queens” that have terrorized innocent beings for generations. Rumors persist that racist talk and animal cruelty still happens behind closed doors.

Not only that, but Blossom is being targeted by alpha males everywhere, not for violence but something much worse – for marriage! Tom Callin, Galileo de Wolf III and Prince Aaron have all recently been seen with Blossom in public for what we can only assume are romantic dates. But what could they possibly be talking about? The Commonwealth of the Pink Sky needs to answer some questions from the press – and soon!

Literature Analysis: Half of the book is about Blossom’s journey through adolescence and then slowly becoming a political activist. Times are changing in Cadabra with the advent of gay rights, talking animals, war, sexual revolutions, and advancements in science. She is trying to fight against her lineage of Evil Queen mothers and do some good for the world.  She makes it a point to try to see multiple points of view, and to become empathetic towards others. The fact that she tries so hard is what makes her gain friends AND lose friends. Politics seems to be a game that’s impossible to win.

Morals: Idealism and close-mindedness are dangerous, as Blossom soon discovers that all of her friends and enemies hold racist and bigoted attitudes that are not easy to change.

Princess “Sweet” Blossom

Memorable Quotes

“Above all else, I simply must believe in the inherent good of all beings.  If we cannot trust each other, what hope have we?  I have always been the type of person to take others at their word.  As a member of the Palace of Saints, and as a woman blessed with physical beauty, I realize how dreadfully unfair first impressions can be. 

Many years ago, I learned that it’s not polite to judge another person by their appearance.  It’s easy to laugh at someone because they’re different.  It’s easy to judge someone because of one mistake they made or to try to make them pay for it the rest of their life. 

Science teaches us that everything is matter, and the mass of an object is a measure of its energy content.  We are all energy.  We are all part of an interrelated ecosystem and we need each other to survive.  So it doesn’t matter what a person looks like.  What matters is what they say, what they believe, and what they are doing to make the world a better place.

I have learned to listen very closely and the rewards for my doing so are wonderful.  I have made so many dear friendships all because I dared not to judge.  I opened my mind to new people and new experiences.

As a maker of my own candy, I find that candy is the perfect analogy for my fellow Cadabra beings.  Each person is a different flavor, each with a unique mind.  But we can all come together for an amazing recipe of combined flavors, which will taste oh so sweet.   

It is little wonder the Palace has named me Sweet Blossom, the Duchess of Candy?”

Memorable Quotes

The Orison to Science document includes “Seven Fallacies and Seven Facts”, each one a reminder to keep Science on a higher pedestal than the seven religious dogmas that permeated the rest of Cadabra.  That is, (1) sexual repression, (2) poor dieting and exercise routines, (3) Greed and greed-based systems, (4) unwillingness to conduct research, (5) ad hominem attacks, (6) surrogate god propaganda and (7) narcissism.  So the oath went:

Fact: A woman should be proud of her genitals.

Fact: No diet and no exercise are the birth of stupidity.

Fact: Money and profiteering statistically bring more death and suffering.

Fact: Peer-reviewed scientific studies are the only thing worth quoting.

Fact: I do not use ad hominem attacks and tu quoque logic to prove my point.

Fact: I have no need of a higher authority, prayer or a religious-based hierarchy.

Fact: I am never wrong because I never say anything unscientific.

“Guys like me change the world, you know.  I’m selling life.  I don’t sell objects.  I sell the secrets of the universe, you see.”

“Oh, I see.  So you’re a negative thinker.  I see.  Well, okay that’s fine.  See, I don’t understand your world.  I am a positive thinker.  I am a big swelling ball of positive energy that brings balance to our universe.  So no, I can’t afford to be around losers.  Or negative thinkers.  Or girls that sit in hot tubs and just take up space while the world passes you by.  No, no.  I’m a winner.  I don’t really know what it’s like to constantly live in fear like you do.”

“No, I don’t need your name.  All I need is The Look.  The Look that says, Yes you are correct.  Regardless of how much I personally hate you, I still feel the energy.  I know what you say is undeniable and true.  I am attracted to you sexually, Mister Tom Callin, because your energy, your confidence, is eviscerating.  Your domination of the conversation, TOM, is so powerful and alpha-male it’s putting me into a hypnotic trance.  That’s what you call gut-level attraction, secret of the universe, the law of like attracts like!

Memorable Quotes

“The name’s Galileo de Wolf the Third and if you ever want a good show all you have to do is ask. If you slap me five times I’ll stop being your friend.  Six times and I file for divorce!  Seven times and I might even stop trying to sleep with you.

Blossom can only choose one path on the road to Sainthood.  Will she follow her morals, her ambitions, or her aching heart?
