 This New Year, help Adamant Ussher in 

the shortest Geological Column in History! Ussher_j_2_2

Deeply shocked by Senator Inhofe's impious failure to note the 6,000th anniversary of the Earth's Creation (4004 B.C. - A.D. 1997) in The Congressional Record , Adamant is gunning for the American Association of Petroleum Geologist's Crichton Award for Creative Science with a Biblically Correct  6,000-year geological column drawing on the work of the Rt. Rev. Archbishop Ussher the worthy 17th century divine who added up all those Begats. At the very least , it will spare Arizona park rangers asked to dissimulate about the age of the Grand Canyon. Now they can honestly say it's five going on six.

Godfearing geology students and liberal arts majors all demand that the AAPG switch to Biblically Correct Geochronology , because it means       A Million Times Less   Geological Time to memorize -- All of it Holocene !
