Lancaster, PA- Hoping to take advantage of the recent popularity of science based programming, such as the documentary series Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, which is an update of Carl Sagan's groundbreaking 1980 original, the Amish community in Lancaster has announced plans to produce a plain people friendly take on the origins of the universe.
"Let it not be said that the Amish are afraid of a challenge," Town Elder Amos Zook explained. "Our ways strictly prohibit the use of most technologies that might further connect us with the outside world or lead us into temptation. But as they say, big ships might only be launched where the water is deepest."
Amish Cosmos, which is the working title for the project, will showcase recent advances in whittling technology, significantly improving upon the last Amish produced educational program which consisted of Jedediah Stoltzfus sitting on an old rocking chair and telling his great-great-grandchildren about the passing of the seasons. In fact, many of the scenes will consist of the real time whittling of important events such as The Big Bang and that time Fannie Yoder got herself trapped in the outhouse.
