High speed rocks and strange notes.
In reference to the fireball question:
I was up in Chicago for the ACS meeting this past week and there was a couple
of blips on the evening news. Apparently it landed in Canada somewhere and it
set a mobile home on fire. There was a quote from a geologist at a nearby
university regarding the speculation that it was from space aliens (oops, sorry
couldn't resist). I think it happened Tuesday or Wednesday of last week and
could be seen in a number of states.
More on the subject (I think), I also had a chance to visit the Field Museum of
Natural History's "DNA to Dinosaurs Exhibit". Well worth the price of
admission, but I was concerned with some things I saw there. At each major
"station" there was a place to submit questions and these were posted on a
board nearby. The majority of the notes said something to the effect "This is
all a lie, read the Bible for the truth!". I am curious whether this is a
common thing, or was I following a bus group of Creationists?
