Palin says "Daina-sores and Hoomans ran around together!"

Not in those exact words, obviously.

Man, I gotta' make a cartoon of this. I just find this crap hilarious.
Seriously; how do these idiots even GET this far in life? Then again, it raises the question of just how legitimate this all is. Everyone sure seems out for Palin's life fluids, so there must be SOME reason.

Anywho, here's a quote ala

"Which brings us to today's topic: Sarah Palin's belief that people and dinosaurs coexisted. When Palin was the mayor of Wasilla she wasn't reticent about sharing even the most bizarre aspects of her faith.

But now that Palin is John McCain's vice-presidential running mate, she won't even admit that she's a Pentecostal. Palin has been sequestered, far away from the press and pundits. In public appearances she sticks to her talking points, and they don't include babbling such nonsense about cavemen cavorting with dinosaurs. "

Here's another one from LA Times:

"Soon after Sarah Palin was elected mayor of the foothill town of Wasilla, Alaska, she startled a local music teacher by insisting in casual conversation that men and dinosaurs coexisted on an Earth created 6,000 years ago -- about 65 million years after scientists say most dinosaurs became extinct -- the teacher said...
Palin told him that "dinosaurs and humans walked the Earth at the same time," Munger said. When he asked her about prehistoric fossils and tracks dating back millions of years, Palin said "she had seen pictures of human footprints inside the tracks," recalled Munger, who teaches music at the University of Alaska in Anchorage and has regularly criticized Palin in recent years on his liberal political blog, called Progressive Alaska...
Palin has attended a number of prayer sessions with pastors and has quietly sought their guidance, but she is often mum on matters of faith in high-profile public forums.

Her aides say Palin's caution at the intersection of religion and governance is a studied effort to share her beliefs without forcing them on Alaska.

'She's obviously an intensively religious person,' said Bill McAllister, Palin's chief spokesman as governor. "She understands that she's the governor and not preacher in chief. Religion informs her decisions, but she is not out to impose her views on Alaska.'"

Seems like Palin at least knows when crazy shit is crazy shit.

It's still funny shit though.

LOL! Wow. That's just... wow. And I thought I'd heard everything about Palin already.

My response to this is... so?

Several people believe this. It's not rare at all. Not everyone is a scientist and some people hold the Bible in higher factual regard than others.

It means they can be ignorant of some scientific and historical facts, but doesn't really mean much else.

What's the big worry?

Someone who refuses to believe basic facts means that their logic in inherently flawed.

DanteCWB said...

So she believes that the Bible is a source of facts.

I can't think of a situation in which a politician would have to know that dinosaurs lived over 65 million years ago.

It's already been stated that she's not going to try and get that taught in schools, so there shouldn't be a problem in that regard.

Young earth creationists are pretty counterproductive when it comes to science, but with most other things it doesn't really matter.
