Miracle of Erosion Discovered

Rock formations resembling the faces of U.S. presidents evolve from the effects of erosion in South Dakota.


From left to right, many claim to see the resemblances of George Washington,
Thomas Jefferson, Teddy Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln.


Geologists are thrilled with the remarkable discovery calling it the most impressive achievement of natural history to date. However, many scientists insist the likenesses are not portraits, but merely the appearance of portraits.

"What we have here is the cumulative effect of trillions of transitional changes over time creating what our human minds perceive as faces. Many Americans desperately long 'to see' their forefathers up there. This reassuring notion is quaint, but it folds like a deck chair when confronted with the truth that our primitive brains are constantly trying to make sense out of an otherwise chaotic world," said Richard Dawkins (left), author of The God Delusion.

"Once we start seeing faces up there, we've started down a path that will lead to knuckle-dragging creationist intolerance or scupture, even."
