Humor: The Onion on the “Intelligent Falling” Controversy

The guys at the Onion are so thorough in their lampoons, I just had to share:

http://www.theonion.com/articles/evangelical-scientists-refute-gravity-with-new-int,1778/#

The controversy:

Scientists from the Evangelical Center For Faith-Based Reasoning are now asserting that the long-held “theory of gravity” is flawed, and they have responded to it with a new theory of Intelligent Falling.

The credentials:

…Gabriel Burdett, who holds degrees in education, applied Scripture, and physics from Oral Roberts University.

The failure of secular science:

… there are many phenomena that cannot be explained by secular gravity alone, including such mysteries as how angels fly, how Jesus ascended into Heaven, and how Satan fell when cast out of Paradise.

Teaching the controversy:

They insist they are not asking that the theory of gravity be banned from schools, but only that students be offered both sides of the issue “so they can make an informed decision.”

A must read, it just keeps going, and going, and going… 🙂

I appreciate nothing, and a little better than I used to.
