image for Geologists discover that rocks are made from dust in revolutionary scientific breakthrough

A recent discovery has led geologists to the conclusion that rocks are indeed made from dust, which is very tightly compacted. This latest discovery has brought chaos to the scientific community and in many other circles, causing the rewrite of several theories, including Einstein's relativity theory, and the book of Genesis.

According to a statement issued by the Pope, it is now believed that the Earth was indeed made in eight, rather than seven days. The Pope pointed out that God would obviously need an extra day for the squeezing of dust into rocks, as it has been proven by scientific research to be a laborious and time consuming process.

This discovery has also solicited a statement from the White House, in which George W. Bush was quoted saying "Thank you, your Holiness. Awesome speech."

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
