Doug, where did you get this? Puhleeze check out your facts before
taking on the editors of Popular Mechanics.

Ouch, you did it again. Check out Van Till's book, _Science Held Hostage_.
Here's a quote:

"By best estimates, then, the accumulation of meteoritic
dust on the moon would contribute a layer less than one
centimeter thick in four billion years."

I think this is the third or fourth corollary.

It still requires faith to believe the Bible; God gave us the choice to
accept or reject him through his son Jesus. He will never force us to
believe, but he desires a close personal relationship with each of us.
Unfortunately, we have separated ourselves from God through sin. Since God
is a just god, he punishes all sin with eternal death. The way out of this
dilemma is putting our trust in Jesus who died on the cross in our place.
The Bible says: That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and
believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with
your mouth that you confess and are saved.

Sounds great. I would love to see it in Popular Mechanics or even TV Guide!
Have you thought about sending it there?
