I've often thought it would be great if ASA (or a similar group of believing
scientists) would put together a "Science & Religion" urban legend web site
de-bunking some of the commonly circulating stories. Lots of good information
(Davis's Fundamentalist Fish Stories comes to mind) is available on the ASA
site but it's hard to find and not necessarily accessible to a lay audience.
Topics I'd like to see addressed include:
Astronomers finding a "day missing in time"
Various claims to have found the remains of Noah's Ark
The Shroud of Turin
Siberian miners locating Hell
I'm sure many people here can cite others... such as the recent claim that
NASA was going to stop posting Hubble pictures online.
Does anyone know if any such site already exists?
