Recently the UK paper The Guardian posted an article stating -- without a shred of skepticism -- that Noah's Ark may have been round.
Sigh. OK, fine. But it gets better.
The Institute for Creation Research -- given just their name, you might guess they haven't found a scientific fact they couldn't spin, fold, or mutilate... and you'd be right -- claims the article is wrong.
Because a round ark makes no sense.
There goes my irony gland again. Luckily it grows back quickly, because in this line of work I seem to need it a lot.
[Update: Without any comment, I'll just add this link here. The connection should be obvious enough.]
