    I think it is a spoof.
    Look at the picture of Sir John Sulston here:

    Compare that with Rev. Gabriel Burdett's photo in the onion-link

    I have a couple or real favorites from The Onion. I'll have to dig them up, but if anyone wishes we could make this thread an Onion fest. :tongue2:

    Jesus used rockets, duh.

    And really, if Jesus was who he really was and angels exist to an extent they are suppose to exist in the Bible.... do they REALLY need to be obeying any laws in our universe if they don't want to?

    Maybe it's easier. Everyone knows that it's hard work to get around the laws of physics.

    Didn't know it was a spoof when I read it. Actually I'd not be surprised if it weren't. After all, there are discussions about whether evolution should be taught in class. The thought ideas like this are seriously considered to be taught in high school scares the hell out of me.

    This was a good one but I didn't have a link handy. It comes from the Dec 8th, 2004 edition.

    Or, from today
