“We Cannot Have Scientific Evidence Confounding Our Beliefs” the Creationists Proclaim
Normally it would not be news that a whale fossil was found, but the size of the whale skull found along the banks of the Potomac in
Virginia is news.
It is the skull of a whale that is “approximately 15 million years old,” said John Nance, the paleontology collections manager at the
Museum in Southern
The skull is believed to be that of a baleen whale and to weigh about 1,000 pounds. It was excavated from the cliffs at the edge of the Potomac on the grounds of Stratford Hall, the home of
’s Lee family and the birthplace of
Robert E. Lee. Virginia
A group of religious fanatics who believe the Earth is less than 10,000 years old did not issue the following statement.
“The claims of a 15 million year old whale skull fossil are just another hoax that science and atheism is playing on the American public. Everyone knows that it is impossible for whales to live within 200 miles of any nation’s capital, and the fact that this purported whale fossil was found about 100 miles from
is just further proof that no fossil is more than a few thousand years
old. There are plenty of reports of native
Americans capturing and burying whale skulls in order to confound modern day Washington . America
All of this shows just how far the unbelievers will go to persecute religious freedom. If we still burned heretics at the stake this nonsense would have ceased long ago. And no one should forget that this so-called fossil was only found after Obamacare was put into law.”
