Any number of psychoactive drugs - mainly illegal ones - can account for this 'Intelligent Falling' theory.

Religion should not get involved with observable physics or indeed, the entire world where observation and experience contradict the teachings of the bible!

I could say a lot more about this sort of direction - but suffice to say, the world and knowledge has moved on a considerable distance in the last 1800 years - and I'm not about to throw that away!

In case you didn't realise, The Onion is a parody site, and this is a rehash of some of the Creationists arguments ... but your comments apply to those just as well as to these!

Take care

Nah, The Onion is a parody site, but it was such a good copy of the Creationists arguments I thought I should share it.

It's a while since you've commented on my journal (or I in yours). How is life these days? Should I read you journal to see what is happening? I won't tonight 'cos it's gone 1.30 AM and I need to be up early to check a server is still working after it got moved from Dublin to Cardiff over the weekend.

Take care, Peace
peter

Yes, but the story just had to be passed on. I thought you were one of my American friends who did understand irony ... was I wrong?
;)

They did the story very 'streight', if someone wasn't aware of what the onion wrote, they might take it for real.

The greatest humor I found in it, is that they COULD write it streight, and still have it fit its format of absurb news writing.
