Intelligent Falling?

Is there no law of nature that can’t be subject to criticism by religious fanatics in the USA? I see from my friends at The Onion that, having rubbished evolution, the fundamentalists are now putting gravity “under the microscope”!

It seems that objects don’t reach the ground because of the force of gravity; they do so as a result of “intelligent falling”. Evangelical scientists in Kansas propose that God pushes these objects downwards.

In the light of my previous post, isn’t it equally possible that objects are forced down by the application of the “noodly appendage” of the omnipresent Flying Spaghetti Monster?

Our children do, indeed, deserve a more balanced approach to this subject!
