Try the Smallville area; it's known to have lots of meteorites. :)

The only thing in my garden right now would be frozen squirrel turds, which do resemble meteorites if you squint your eyes just right. You can definitely have some of those...

Here's a picture of Mr. FTK doing his Christian best to help you out.

Amazingly it's only 6,000 years old.  Or maybe 6.o billion, but since it's on display in Bumfuck KS, you can probably just walk in, chip off a little piece and walk out.  I am sure that Evil Atheists do this all the time, so that makes it ok.  Plus, God came to me in a vision and said you should do that.

Nope. But I got plenty of these:

Ah, the lovely barite rose, the state rock of Oklahoma (aka Baja Kansas).

Those things are clearly designed, I'd say. Have you sent one to Sal so that he can run it through the Nixplanatory Filter or some other orifice?

As an FYI - the Greensburg meteorite is now safely stored in the Sternberg Museum of Natural History in Hays, KS; the tornado last spring demolished its building, but didn't budge the space rock one bit.

I hope you get hold of one . . . considering how the one in Haviland was used a couple of years ago:

So I was all excited about the Haviland Meteorite Festival. I thought it was neat and keen that the fun folks of rural Kansas were stepping up to celebrate their scientific heritage. Some kettle corn, a few rides, some fireworks, a little talk about ancient rocks, and all would be well.

Unfortunately, Davin in the comments (and Dr. Myers) had to burst my bubble by actually pointing me to the program for the festival. Instead of a celebration of the glory of the universe and our little slice of it, the event has been infiltrated by creationists. The festival will screen three creationist movies – including Privileged Planet, the film that got the Smithsonian into a tizzy, and another that is a "biblically based, family oriented video."

The article describing the new meteorite find and mentioning the festival doesn't mention that, while the discoverer of the meteorite is excited that it's billions of years old, the festival honoring it will feature "Steve Miller, Member of Creation Research Society" running a stargazing session. I'm guessing he won't be chatting about the billions of years this meteorite took to form, or even the tens of thousands it's been sitting in the ground.


If it helps, I'd check my backyard right now if we weren't fightin' this kind of stuff right now:

You know, back when he was over at the SciPhiShow.com board attempting to work through an example, I had thoughts about throwing a rose rock at him after he successfully worked his way through an example of the EF. Unfortunately, he never made it that far.

Heck of a back yard.  Here in Chicago, we call that a park!

ps:  Maybe an atheist's convention would help melt all that ice.  You know, fires of hell and all that...
