Was Grand Canyon Project Rejected Because Researcher Is a Creationist?

All Andrew Snelling wants to do is collect some rocks from Grand Canyon in order to help prove Arizona's most-famous landmark was created in a few days by God.

National Park Service officials won't let him, denying his 2013 research application following scathing criticisms of his beliefs by several scientists.

Now, the Scottsdale-based Alliance Defending Freedom, a Christian legal-help organization, is suing in federal court on behalf of Snelling, claiming his constitutional rights are being violated.

In the federal complaint filed on Tuesday, ADF uses several key e-mails by scientists who put their feelings in writing to demonstrate the bias Snelling says he encountered.
