HOW OLD IS THE GRAND CANYON? PARK SERVICE WON'T SAY — Orders to Cater to Creationists Makes National Park Agnostic on Geology
Grand Canyon National Park is not permitted to give an official estimate of the geologic age of its principal feature, due to pressure from Bush administration appointees.
Also,
Park officials have defended the decision to approve the sale of Grand Canyon: A Different View, claiming that park bookstores are like libraries, where the broadest range of views are displayed. ... "As one park geologist said, this is equivalent of Yellowstone National Park selling a book entitled Geysers of Old Faithful: Nostrils of Satan,"
How very sad. Thank you Bush Administration and Creationists for deliberately dumbing down our country and its citizens. If they are selling that book at the gift shoppe, they should also sell the alternate book explaining how and when the FSM carved the Grand Canyon with His noodly appendage."

Show me a man who is a good loser and I'll show you a man who is playing golf with his boss.
