Park Service Can't Give Official Age Of Grand Canyon For Fear Of Offending Creationists...

Due to pressure from Bush Administration officials, the National Park Service is not permitted to give an official age for the Grand Canyon. Additionally, a book claiming the Grand Canyon was created by Noah's flood is for sale at the National Park's bookstore.

The sale of Grand Canyon: A Different View was scheduled for review over three years ago, but no such review has been schedule or even requested. The creationist book was the only item approved for sale in 2003 (22 other items were rejected).

...I hate lies. I hate the vilification of science and intellectualism. I hate religious propaganda guised as research or theory. Creationism/Intelligent Design, however you package it, has no empirical value or predictability. The god of ID is the God-of-the-Gaps. I could never believe in such a small god.
The best web site for debunking extremest anti-science is Talk Origins.
