Snelling wanted to remove rocks from the Grand Canyon so that he might prove water from a global flood carved the Grand Canyon. His request was denied. He is suing claiming he is being discriminated against because of his religious beliefs. LOL! Someone should tell him the rejection of his request has nothing to do with his religious belief and everything to do with his request having no basis in reality.

Well since Noah's flood is not a scientific theory, they have every right to restrict him from taking the samples of rocks for his research.

It's not a matter of Noah's flood being a scientific theory - it's a matter of 'research' that does not take into account what is already known.

They're rocks. The Grand Canyon has literal tons. Who cares if some guy wants to waste his time and money trying to prove a wackadoo theory with them.

It is a matter of preserving the site and wackadoo theories are not a good reason to forgo this.

I see where you're coming from, but the site in this case is hardly fragile. It's not like he's asking for a pillar of the Parthenon. What serious damage could he possibly do to the Grand Canyon.

Removing part of the environment (no matter how insignificant it may seem) has the potential to do much damage (especially when considered in relation to the total visitors to the site over the life of the site). If there were a good reason for removal of the rocks I could understand. - otherwise, I think it would be difficult to justify disallowing others from doing the same.

I think it may depend on which rocks, how many, and from where. Also there may be a liability issue if he thinks he has to scale cliffs to get them.

I also think the fact that it's not an actual scientific theory that he wants to test, is a valid issue.

I don't think it's just because he is a 'Bibleolator'.
