"Y'abba, dabba, doo!" Were the Flintstones anti-Catholic?



I'm thinking they probably were.  I figured it out by analyzing the phrase, "yabba, dabba, doo!"  As a result, I think it is all too obvious.  First, a little bit of history:  The Church of Scientology was founded in 1952 - although it was officially incorporated the following year.  The Flintstones debuted in 1960 - the year the Fatima secret was supposed to be revealed.  2012 begins the 60th anniversary of the founding of Scientology - hence the connection to 1960.  Kind of.  I'm not sure what that means, either.

Anyway - when we examine the structure of the first word of Fred Flintstones seemingly innocuous chant:  "Y'abba" - though the script never inserts the apostrophe after the "Y" - we can recognize its presence phonetically.   Therefore, the astute listener must ask himself;  "What does the first word of the phrase really mean?"

It's quite simple really, if we dissect each word with slavish accuracy.  For example:  "Y" stands for  Yahweh, therefore it follows that "abba" stands for Father.  It's meant to be blasphemous - taking God's name in vain.  Additionally, there are never any references in the series to Adam and Eve, the origins of the universe, and so on.  All of that is considered myth - although it is not stated, it is implied.  In fact there was a space alien guardian in the series, The Great Gazoo, who tried to help the characters out, clearly suggesting humanity originated from aliens.  (Just like Scientology!  See the connection now?)  Gazoo rhymes with "y'abba dabba doo" too.  It's all there, people.

Anyway, now I'm trying to figure out what Cardinal Pell meant when...
Asked by journalist Tony Jones if he believed in the existence of an actual Garden of Eden with an Adam and Eve, Cardinal Pell said it was not a matter of science but rather a beautiful mythological account.
"It's a very sophisticated mythology to try to explain the evil and the suffering in the world," he said. - Source
Any myth will do, I suppose.

  1. That was fantastic! Kinda reminds me of when Bishop Sheen wove an imaginary tale of how the "Myth" of Napoleon came to be:

    Have I ever told you about my biggest guilty pleasure, the History Channel series Ancient Aliens? I used to follow its foremost ancient astronaut theorist on Twitter until last Easter, when he tweeted that Jesus was actually an alien. It shouldn't have been a surprise, coming from him, but I felt so sad for him all of a sudden that I had to stop following his tweets.

  4. Does " 'Abba dabba dabba dabba dabba dabba dabba' said the monkey to the chimp" explain evolution?

  5. Terry, you're such a laugh at times. Anyone who has taken a Scripture 101 course would be able to understand what the cardinal was saying. Heck, my high school students had better understand as they have an exam looming in the next few month or so.

  7. I am surprised at you Terry--the answer is very clear. The Flintstones is not anti-catholic. The whole series took place way before the birth of Christ and there was no frame of Christian reference. Geesh.
