Man Sues the Grand Canyon for Religious Discrimination

Well, this might be the stupidest thing we’ve heard in a long time.

Andrew Snelling is a creationist geologist who’s known for giving lectures on such things as the Bible and the formation of the Earth. In his case, he believes the Earth is only a few thousand years old – and that it’s natural wonders, such as the Grand Canyon, formed after Noah’s flood.

Snelling truly believes that the U.S. government is purposely getting in the way of his research of the Grand Canyon. Now he’s suing.

The Atlantic is reporting that the Alliance Defending Freedom, a Christian legal advocacy group filed the suit on Snelling’s behalf last week. They’e suing park administrators and the Department of Interior all over a some permit to collect rocks that they were denied.

Snelling says he’s being discriminated against because of his Christian beliefs. He feels that the fifty or sixty rocks from the canyon he planned on taking would prove that the Grand Canyon and the Earth itself are much much younger than what scientists would have you believe.
