I would like to know the objective criteria for this supposed current cultural dark age.
No problem. It's easy enough to calculate:

YEAR RJ THINKS IT IS WHEN HE WAKES UP
- YEAR RJ REALIZES WE'RE ACTUALLY STILL LIVING IN BECAUSE SOMETHING BAD HAPPENED

+ NUMBER OF YEARS RJ'S WORKED IN WOMEN'S HEALTH
- YEARS HE'S BEEN OUT OF THE FIELD, INDICATING AN ACROSS THE BOARD DECLINE IN WOMEN'S ISSUES

+ YEARLY SALES OF RJ'S SELF-PUBLISHED FAN FICTION IN DOLLARS

- WORLDWIDE BOX OFFICE TAKE OF STAR TREK 09 IN MILLIONS
- ST09'S COMBINED NUMBER OF PERCENTAGE POINTS ABOVE 0% SCORE ON ROTTEN TOMATOES AND METACRITIC

- PROJECTED WORLDWIDE BOX OFFICE TAKE OF STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS IN MILLIONS
- STID COMBINED NUMBER OF PERCENTAGE POINTS ABOVE 0% SCORE ON ROTTEN TOMATOES AND METACRITIC

- AVERAGE PER EPISODE RATINGS/VIEWERSHIP OF BATTLESTAR GALACTICA REMAKE & SPIN-OFFS

- JJ ABRAMS' AND RON MOORE'S COMBINED AGE IN YEARS, INDICATING CUMULATIVE YEARS OF DARKNESS CREEP INTO ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY

+ RJ'S ESTIMATED IQ POINTS OF AUDIENCE OF SHOWS AND MOVIES HE LIKES
- RJ'S ESTIMATED IQ POINTS OF AUDIENCE OF SHOWS AND MOVIES RJ DOESN'T LIKE
+ RJ'S ESTIMATED MATURITY LEVEL OF AUDIENCE OF SHOWS AND MOVIES HE LIKES ON A SCALE OF 1-100
- ESTIMATED MENTAL AGE OF THE KIND OF PERSON WHO WOULD ENJOY THE SHOWS AND MOVIES RJ DISLIKES

+ NUMBER OF REPUTABLE HISTORIANS WHO STILL USE OUTDATED TERMINOLOGY LIKE "THE DARK AGES" TO DESCRIBE AN ERA THAT HAD PLENTY OF SCIENTIFIC AND CULTURAL PROGRESS, INDICATING A SIMILAR MINDSET TO RJ AND RESISTANCE TO THE SCOURGE OF POLITICALLY CORRECT DOUBLESPEAK

+ ????

= PROFIT, errr, I mean CULTURAL DARK AGES OR CULTURAL RENAISSANCE QUOTIENT (DEPENDS ON NUMBER OF YEARS +/- CURRENT ACTUAL YEAR RESPECTIVELY AS INDICATED BY ABOVE RESULTS).

* ADD 1000 MORE YEARS OF CULTURAL DECLINE IF CULTURAL DARKNESS SCORE LANDS BETWEEN THE 6TH AND 13TH CENTURIES
* ADD SIX MORE CENTURIES OF CULTURAL WINTER IF RJ SEES HIS EGO'S MASSIVE SHADOW
