    Who needs wise men when we have Bush? Reminds me of those shirts I have seen that show a Baby and says "Allready smarter then Bush"

    That reads so much like an article from 'The Onion'.

    So, anyway, I was just reading Gibbon's "Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire", and for a second, I thought I'd picked up the newspaper instead....

    I do take issue with a couple of things here -

    1) When admittedly slanted terminology is used in defending your stance, it's hard to swallow, no matter if you are creationist, evolutionist, or creatavolutionist.

    2) It would be nice to know exactly who the "Bush appointees" are and if they were the same ones that issued Director's Order #6 - or what the current deal is. The dichotomy reeks of someone playing games at NPS HQ. Anywhere you go, there are always going to be some employees with agendas who will make things difficult for everybody. With the government, it is almost impossible to get rid of them (I've tried).

    3) Maybe the other 22 books were even worse ;)

    I don't even need to click on the links. I already know what you guys are talking about. It's been going on for awhile now.

    It makes me sad, even as someone who believes in God.

    The question is, do you believe in the Grand Canyon?:cool:

    Does the Grand Canyon believe in me?

    could the grand canyon make a rock so big that even it could not hold it?

    Well, I've never seen it in person. But I've heard of it. It is Grand. Guess I'll just have to have faith.

    Of course, I could just go there, but that would require effort, which I am fundamentally (no pun intended) against.

    why not exporting those fundamentalists to an island, let them have their stone age life.

    Better yet, send them to the Middle East. They like Theocracies so much, and many of them support the war. Boom, instant troop surge.

    How many grand canyons could dance on the head of a state pen.

    There I wuz, standing at the South Rim, and I sez to myself, "Self, that's a couple of billion years of really lousy erosion control. Truly unsound farming practices."

    It's bad enough that the NPS' budget hasn't kept pace with inflation during these last 20 or 25 years, but now this garbage...
