It’s simple, really, you’re wrong

I read in the paper this morning that there is a book on the main shelves of the bookshop at the Grand Canyon in Arizona, USA, that presents as fact the idea that the Canyon was created 6,000 years ago by the biblical flood. All efforts by intelligent human beings to have the book moved into the ‘inspirational reading’ section have apparently been thwarted by Christian lobby groups who see such an action as book censorship. The book remains a bestseller.

Is it any wonder they voted George W. Bush back in?

    The Grand Canyon wasn’t created 6000 years ago? Pete, next you’ll be telling us there’s no Santa Claus.
