The Onion stole my idea!

In this week's issue of The Onion: Evangelical Scientists Refute Gravity With New 'Intelligent Falling' Theory. This link will only be good for a week or so, so here is some of what the article says.

"Things fall not because they are acted upon by some gravitational force, but because a higher intelligence, 'God' if you will, is pushing them down," said Gabriel Burdett, who holds degrees in education, applied Scripture, and physics from Oral Roberts University.
"Traditional scientists admit that they cannot explain how gravitation is supposed to work," Carson said. "What the gravity-agenda scientists need to realize is that 'gravity waves' and 'gravitons' are just secular words for 'God can do whatever He wants.'"

Back in March, I said on this very blog: "to me, saying you don't believe in evolution is a bit like saying you don't believe in gravity".

I guess it just shows that both The Onion and myself have an incredible sense of humour.
