Greetings, Science buffs! Get some pants on already! And maybe some hip boots, because we're going to continue wading through our tenth-grade textbook from Bob Jones University Press, Biology For Christian Schools by William "Pinkie Pie" Pinkston.
That beats the hell out of my giant soap bubble explanation. (I had the surface tension thing all wrong, dammit!)
Have you considered freelancing as a consultant to the Creationists? I assume they have an institute somewhere where they cook up their pseudo-scientific explanations -- you could have a bit of fun seeing how far out you can get before they figure out they&#039;re being Poe&#039;d. Heck, they might never figure it out. (I wonder what they pay...)
Somebody needs the cut the author with Occam&#039;s razor.
What do the rest rooms look like by now?

No, they don&#039;t . . . not yet, anyway ... but let&#039;s not let the facts get in the way of a good fairy tale.

(Actual answer from a creationist . . . the snark is built-in with these folks.)
It would seem that Bill Cosby got it wrong, because Noah would surely have replied, &quot;Riiiiiiight. . . . What&#039;s rain?&quot;
Not in Genesis, but &quot;white as snow&quot; is a popular phrase elsewhere.
but &quot;white <strike>as snow</strike> is right&quot; is a popular phrase elsewhere.
I RIDE WITH MOSES.
Silly Knocker...Humans have never left the atmosphere. All of that &quot;moon landing&quot;, &quot;satellites around Uranus&quot; stuff is all just special effects. The only time humans actually tried to leave the atmosphere was the Challenger mission. I think God&#039;s reaction to people violating His natural laws speaks volumes.
Youl should hear his woodwinds perform!
(e) none of the above should have been an option, but only if the &quot;teacher&quot; knows more than jack shit.
