Grand Canyon Whitewater Rafting
I posted this over at my Wordpress blog, but I'm posting it again just because I wanted to tell about a recent visit to the Science Museum in St. Paul.
Their Omni Theater, you know the 3D theater, was doing a special on the Grand Canyon featuring scenes of whitewater rafting. I thought this would be so much fun, and the scenes would be beautiful. Well, it was all this...and more. More that I didn't need.
My first clue should have been the narration by Robert Redford. He kept harping on the state of the Colorado river - all the things that don't grow there anymore, all the things that you can't find in the river anymore, how we're doomed!!!!
Then, of course, he talked about how great the Indians were.
At the end of the film, after they tainted the beauty of watching the scenes of the Grand Canyon, they gave you a "talk" on how you can change your habits and change your showerhead and things like that, to save water.
Liberals! They can't stop harping on their religion, which is the environment!
You can't just go see a film about the beauty of the Grand Canyon and have fun riding along with a whitewater rafting crew without a lecture on the environment throughout the whole thing!
Don't they know that God created the earth in six days, and He can heal the earth overnight if we just put our faith in Him?
