Meteor Crater, Arizona

And God created the Heavens and the Earth.

Some say that God created the cosmos in six days, and that the Earth is 6,000 years old.

Science tells us that the Earth is 4.5 billion years old, and that the mile wide crater near Winslow Arizona was made by a meteor 50,000 years ago.

Standing on the edge of the crater there is no sense of scale, but it’s huge.

What nobody will tell you is that standing on the edge of the crater in June, you will get eaten alive by midge and mosquito alike.  Go very early in the morning, in colder weather, but go.  If just to know that all the religious fundamentalists are wrong.

If a meteor had to strike anywhere, AZ is as good a place as any, as AZ is mostly empty space.
