I nominate "Creationist

I nominate "Creationist geologist" for oxymoron of the year.

But I wonder why the national park authority even bothered to deny permission. What difference would it have made to allow this whacko to collect a few more rocks to add to the collection in his head? Or does granting a permit somehow endorse the validity of the research?

Algebe, I'm guessing that it adds to the validity of the research. He got a valid permit to do research from the grand canyon park.
