Scorpio for this week:

Employees who work at the Grand Canyon are not supposed to tell visitors that the monumental gorge is over five million years old. Officials are worried that doing so might offend fundamentalist Christians who suffer from the delusion that Noah’s flood created the Grand Canyon a few thousand years ago. Keep this vignette in mind during the coming week, Scorpio. Let it serve as a warning beacon. I suspect that like a non-fundamentalist tourist at the Grand Canyon, you’re going to be fed a line of BS that was designed for people who can’t handle the truth. Either that, or someone will withhold the facts from you out of a concern that you’d be furious to have your assumptions questioned. As an antidote, be extra devoted to learning the real story that’s hidden beneath the official account.

I can see the second part happening. I think I’m finally used to people underestimating me, and actually comfortable with it. Now to just work on that reaction of anger in regards to it. That’s something I’m not good at. Least, the initial reaction.

  1. The Grand Canyon

    This is a good start for a basic understanding of the REAL geology of the Grand Canyon. It’s been over 15 years since I took Sedimentation and Stratigraphy, so I re-aqaunted myself with on-lap/off-lap shallow sea progressions, which are well displayed in the canyon.

    Maybe the fundamentalists could tell me how you get the Vishnu Schist basement complex, non-comformably overlain by the Grand Canyon Supergroup…then tilt the whole thing 15 degrees and uplift to produce tension dip/slip faulting and fault block mountains. Then, with an angular unconformity now produced you have a whole new round of deposition (and a big chunk of missing record in the middle-called a non-conformity) and on and on and on…all in 6,000 years.

    *sigh* I can’t believe that people still go for that stuff.
