  •  No, but uranium was. It never lies. (10+ / 0-)

    Besides uranium - astronomy, physics, chemistry, and geology were present.  None of them lie, either.

    Being the sort to give my fellow students cheat sheets, I'll tell you the answer to some of the questions.

    1. The earth is billions of years old.
    True. 4.5 billion years old.  For extra credit (or a beating from the teacher), note that the universe is around 14 billion years old.

    2. On what day did God make the dinosaurs?
    Which god?

    12. What is the "History Book of the Universe"?
    The cosmic microwave background radiation.

    13. What did God tell Noah to build?
    A big boat, but the Noah story appears in multiple ancient Near Eastern cultures and may reference a cataclysmic flood around the Black Sea.

    14. Did Noah's ark look like this?
    Who knows?  The story references either a myth or a bardic traditional story.  See my answer to 13.

    You're bound to get an A...or get the shit kicked out of you for being a heathen.  Just remind them that heathens have more fun.
