How did they clear away the dust? The Grand Canyon is usually hazy from windblown dust, being surrounded by desert.

This comment has been moved to The Bathroom Wall.

When I click on the “Grand Canyon” link in the picture caption, I get a 404 Not Found error.

Sorry - some default added a string to the link. It should be

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grand_Canyon

But I think I fixed it.

I have also sent silly comments about the Republicans to the bathroom wall.

Perhaps the weather was cooperative that day.

I’ve found it’s hard NOT to take a panoramic photo of the grand canyon.

Yes, maybe there was a good winter rain (or a summer downpour during monsoon season) followed by a dry air mass.

Are we going to get back to some good old fashioned sensible creationist deconstruction? I would hate to see ‘Pandas’ turn into a politically correct echo chamber. I come here to read smart people dismembering idiots, not to look at crap photos.

My guess is that it will be a while before the creationist rabble recover from their new found awareness of how their own side has been lying to them for decades. It takes a really clueless boob to not understand that something is wrong when the guys that are selling you the science of intelligent design have been running a stupid bait and switch scam on their own creationist support base for over a decade. You have to be doubly clueless to support the switch scam that you have to realize doesn’t even mention that the ID scam ever existed and understand who is selling it to you. It seems to be more common to see the rubes stop lying about what science they have and taking it back to a religious argument. Guys like ex senator Santorum have decided to stop lying about the ID scam and are calling what they want taught creationism. You see that more and more in editorials by the once clueless, but no longer as clueless.

The result is some type of doldrum with only the delusionally incompetent wanting to defend the nonexistent scientific merits of creationism. If there were scientific merits to creationism why would the latest poly fail to mention ID or creationism as any part of any scientific controversy?

Really, it doesn’t take much to understand that if creation science was so wonderful why would they need a bogus scam like intelligent design, and if intelligent design wasn’t just a scam, why doesn’t the replacement ploy even mention that intelligent design ever existed. The same guys that lied about intelligent design are selling the replacement creationist scam. No one can deny that simple fact.

This is the reality that exists today and there just aren’t too many people willing to argue the matter.
