You must read this.

This article contains some wonderful and enlightening journalism, attaining almost to seventh grade standards. Witness the triumph of the written word in such achievements as these:

Quote
The author of the book frequently described as the greatest history book ever written, said the world was created Oct. 23, 4004 B.C. – making it exactly 6,010 yesterday....

Ussher's arrival at the date of Oct. 23 was determined based on the fact that most peoples of antiquity, especially the Jews, started their calendar at harvest time. Ussher concluded there must be good reason for this, so he chose the first Sunday following autumnal equinox.....

For generations, this classic work was considered part of the essential reading for educated people....

And witness the following, possibly the greatest journalistic self-promotion ever imagined:
Quote
As a very special added bonus, when you purchase "The Annals of the World" from WorldNetDaily's online store, you can also receive – FREE – three issues of our acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, which many have called the best news magazine in the world.
I don't know about you, but I look forward to seeing what this author can do once he gets his driver's licence.

Wow.  Giving Christianity a bad name for over a thousand years: Christians.

I find that site hilarious, if only because they're so sincere.
