Grand Canyon – Created During Noah’s Flood

Amazing news everyone! The Grand Canyon is no longer millions of years old (pretty sweet eh?)!

Grand Canyon National Park is not permitted to give an official estimate of the geologic age of its principal feature, due to pressure from Bush administration appointees. Despite promising a prompt review of its approval for a book claiming the Grand Canyon was created by Noah’s flood rather than by geologic forces, more than three years later no review has ever been done and the book remains on sale at the park

Noah's Flood Created The Grand Canyon

Who needs to rely on facts and science when you can just will something to be true! I think I’m going to lobby congress to get them to declare McDonald’s to be health food, you know, cause it tastes good, so it MUST be healthy (my gut tells me so).

Judge Not, That Ye Be Not Judged

It never ceases to amaze me – the hypocritical nature of Vatican.

They condemned the move made to built a wall along the U.S. – Mexico border, completely disregarding the fact that the Vatican is surrounded by a massive 50 foot stone wall.

A senior Vatican cardinal on Tuesday condemned the building of walls between countries to keep out immigrants and said Washington’s plan to build a fence on the U.S.-Mexican border was part of an “inhuman program”.

“Speaking of borders, I must unfortunately say that in a world that greeted the fall of the Berlin Wall with joy, new walls are being built between neighborhood and neighborhood, city and city, nation and nation,” the cardinal said.

Pope Giving Advice

Don’t you love it when you can hide away in you walled off country and tell others how they should act? Here’s some advice: Lead by example, asshole.

The Bible

Do you believe in God? Why? Did someone teach you about him? Did you read a book that convinced you? Was it the Bible?

I’m almost positive that more than 95% of people who label themselves “Christians” have never actually read the Bible from cover to cover.
