Beware What You Read

I found this group of linked articles interesting...and frustrating. The Christian community does this sort of thing with regularity too (remember the Onion article about Harry Potter that got passed around as gospel?) so I'm not throwing stones.

Doonesbury cartoon about Grand Canyon/Creationist controversy.
eSkeptic article about the same controversy.

eSkeptic correction to its previous article.
Neil Gaiman's post that started the whole thing off for me.

There's so much noise out there that to be heard these days you need to say something LOUD. And when LOUD and true aren't given equal weight or when LOUD simply means incindiary...we're in a bad spot.
