The Alternative "Paul Bunyan" Theory of Geology

Geology classes in Alabama now mandating alternative "Paul Bunyan" theory

After months of debating amongst themselves, Alabama state representatives have finally agreed to require geology teachers to teach "Paul Bunyan Theory" as an alternative to the scientific explanation for formations such as canyons and mountains...

The theory states that "The natural features such as mountains and rivers are too big to have been made by nature, and were instead created by some large, intelligent, lumberjack-like being."

"We don't specifically SAY it was Paul Bunyan who did it, we just say it was an intelligent, lumberjack like being!" Scientists argued back that there are very few other large lumberjacks other than Paul Bunyan, and they also made the rather obvious point that the theory is obviously referring to Paul Bunyan, because Bunyan is in the theory's name

Well, if you're talking about me, my roots are in Tennessee, although most of my life has been spent west of the Mississippi.

Yes jelly, I know it's a joke. I was trying to be mean and sarcastic. It doesn't suit me well it seems. =)

People in the "Say-yowth" are the ones still flying a Confederate Flag, no? Honestly, which is worse: terrorists who blow up buildings or intellectual terrorists who do things like this?

Especially considering Paul Bunyan has ZERO ties to the "Say-yowth".

Idiotic theory! Canyons are fromed when the flying spagati monster strech some of the noodles into space. The pit is the canyon and the rock becomes a metoer

Why is it that we cant have a single post on this site without somebody completely degrading another person, group, religion, belief etc...

It wasn't a war of Northern aggression, it was a war of Southern slavery.

It was the north that paid black soldiers less than white soldiers and tried to give then 2 meals a day instead of 3...

And it was the South who was fighting to make sure they could keep them as slaves.

Yes i'm sure the 100's of thousands of Confederate soldiers who volunteered did it so they could fight for rich plantation owners' profits.

My father had the confederate flag everywhere, and was proud of it. There was nothing more humiliating.
