A tapestry of opinion

One of the great things about cruising through the news online, and especially via the medium of Twitter, is that it throws up altogether unexpected juxtapositions. Today I encountered the touching wisdom of a 12-year old, and the bizarre ‘learning’ of an academic side by side.

In a separate development, evangelical ‘scientists’ in Kansas announce that gravity is not a force, but an ‘intelligent falling’ caused by God pushing things down!

You choose where the wisdom is to be found…
