You may have read some of my diatribes against Intelligent Design. Leave it to The Onion to bring us the breaking news of the next battle — the push to teach Intelligent Falling.
From the article:
“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.'”
Gravity is the only force for which scientists have not yet found a transmitting particle. Electric and magnetic fields, as well as the strong and weak forces, have all been found to be transmitted by exchange of messenger particles. It is suspected that gravity is perhaps transmitted by gravitons, but they have not been found.
The obvious conclusion? God is pushing things together.
I’m actually mildly concerned that some group will get an idea from this article, and run with it.
I found an article in Time Magazine about this (August 15, 2005). I stole it from my allergist’s office and scanned it for you at work. 🙂 E-mail me and let me know where I should send it.
