As one park geologist said, this is equivalent of Yellowstone National Park selling a book entitled Geysers of Old Faithful: Nostrils of Satan,

4. Unbelievable
This is why we are becoming the laughing stock of the world. No wonder our students can't compete in the real world.

5. This is absolutely ridiculous!!! We all know the Grand Canyon was created by Paul Bunyan!
...He did it by dragging his ax behind him!

Like many myths, this explains a physical phenomenon. Bunyan's birth was strange, as are the births of many mythic heroes, as it took seventeen storks to carry the infant (ordinarily, one stork could carry several babies and drop them off at their parents' home). Paul and Babe dug the Grand Canyon by dragging his axe behind him, and created Mount Hood by piling rocks on top of their campfire to put it out.

Wikipedia

Christians vs. Bunyanists: who's myth are you going to believe?
