Intelligent Falling (IF) is an idea in the spirit of parody religion, that gravity is actually the hand(s) of God pushing objects
down toward each other. It was created on Usenet in 2002 as a parody of Intelligent Design. It also states that the rate of change in the horizontal component with time is equal to 1 Corinthians 1:10.
In some senses, the idea of intelligent falling has more substance than the idea of intelligent design (granted that's not hard, and it doesn't say the nicest things about ID). Although biologists know very well how life developed, gravity still lacks a coherent and totally reliable explanation. And yet, no one's pushing to have intelligent falling put on the curriculum. (Hmm... perhaps there is a lesson there about gaps in scientific knowledge.) Or maybe they should, given that
intelligent design creationism sometimes requires intelligent falling to be made coherent.
