I saw this headline and thought it was a "Dune" reference. Damn you for bringing my nerdiness into such stark relief.

This is still bullshit. The herald recognizes all sorts of "unofficial" events like birthdays, sweet sixteen, anniversaries, "congrats on making the football team", etc.
In fact, it might work to send in what is ostensibly a birthday recognition with a giant picture of onself and one's partner in full wedding gear. Or something.

Theory Liberal Conspiracy of Relativity
oh dear. The article does spend most of its time denying relativity. however, when it begins to discuss time dilation, it actually looks to relativity to support creationism:
"Creation scientists such as physicists Dr. Russell Humphreys and Dr. John Hartnett have used relativistic time dilation to explain how the earth can be only 6,000 years old even though cosmological data (background radiation, supernovae, etc.) set a much older age for the universe. "
