Intelligent Falling theory

America's finest news source brings us the latest breakthrough in evangelical physics - the 'Intelligent Falling' theory.

"Things fall not because they are acted upon by some gravitational force, but because a higher intelligence, 'God' if you will, is pushing them down," said Gabriel Burdett, who holds degrees in education, applied Scripture, and physics from Oral Roberts University."

"According to the ECFR paper published simultaneously this week in the International Journal Of Science and the adolescent magazine God's Word For Teens!, there are many phenomena that cannot be explained by secular gravity alone, including such mysteries as how angels fly, how Jesus ascended into Heaven, and how Satan fell when cast out of Paradise."

"Anti-falling physicists have been theorizing for decades about the 'electromagnetic force,' the 'weak nuclear force,' the 'strong nuclear force,' and so-called 'force of gravity,'" Burdett said. "And they tilt their findings toward trying to unite them into one force. But readers of the Bible have already known for millennia what this one, unified force is: His name is Jesus."

Trust the Onion! Gravity is just a theory dude. Didn't you read in school? Its called the theory of gravity. And I bet if we were to survey the country tomorrow, 45% will have faith in the Intelligent Falling theory.

don't forget to check out the lead story about Rumsfeld's surprise visit to his wife's vagina. My favourite bit (no pun intended): "You go to the vagina with the equipment you have"

The Onion Rules.
