Does Sarah Palin Concern Anyone but Me?

See the LA Times Story Here

Sarah Palin believes that men and dinosaurs coexisted on an Earth created 6,000 years ago. OK fine I do not believe that the bible is a literal translation. I am not a religious fanatic but I believe that there is at least the possibility of a Supreme Being. I do not see it as a stretch if we believe that all this “stuff” for lack of a better term was here then one has to entertain the possibility that there was “someone” that set it all in motion, otherwise why is it all here in the first place?

About the bible, remember if God gave these words he was talking to people millennia ago. They were not as sophisticated and many concepts escaped them, in particular many concepts like numbers, large numbers, and no numbers and negative numbers. Remember these people did not have a zero. How would they have conceived 4.5 billion years? They would not that is the point. So the creation of the world was in days expressed in years of 1,000. This was meant for shepherds and the uneducated. I do not find the 4.5 billion years in any conflict with the bible, it was just written to the level of understanding of the time.

That being said a person today who believes that the earth is only 6,000 years old and that men and dinosaurs walked the earth together and is running for vice president, gravely concerns me. How about you?

  1. “World events do not occur by accident: They are made to happen, whether it is to do with national issues or commerce; and most of them are staged and managed by those who hold the purse strings.”

  2. You never watched the Flintstones? Of course dinosaurs and humans existed together.

  3. averageuscitizen,



  4. Next time you order your favourite Chinese food dish, take a second look at the mural of the dragon on restaurant wall or on the take out container. Then go home an re-read Job 40-41
