Valley of the dolts

Lorinne alerted me to a particularly choice bit of "remember when people used to actually behave like the separation of church and state was a good idea?" craziness: apparently, if you're visiting the Grand Canyon, and ask, "So, how old is the Grand Canyon, anyway?", they're not allowed to tell you. Why? Because telling you would upset creationists who think the world is only a few thousand years old, and that the Grand Canyon was created by Noah's flood. On the bright side, the Noah's Ark walking tours apparently did a less-than-brisk business.

The Ark tour folks should have made more realistic income projections before shelling out huge bucks for a top-notch web designer.

The Grand Canyon report has been highly exaggerated: http://www.skeptic.com/eskeptic/07-01-17.html
