Sarah Palin, the cutie that was supposed to help McCain defeat Obama, is fast sinking away in the mediocrity she spreads around. Now, more evidence is surfacing that she is a young earth creationist.
According to the Los Angeles Times, Sarah Palin met a local music teacher shortly after she became mayor of Wasilla, Alaska. During their conversation, she insisted that humans and dinosaurs coexisted when earth was created 6,000 years ago.
When Philip Munger, the teacher, confronted her with the fact that science has conclusively demonstrated that dinosaurs died out 65 million years ago, by looking at fossils and tracks, she insisted that she had seen pictures of human footprints inside dinosaur tracks.
It is my guess that Sarah Palin was referring to Glen Rose, Texas. There, in the Paluxy River, creationists insist that "man tracks" have been found among the dinosaur tracks. Strangely enough, the vast majority of these so-called human tracks have been found on loose rocks.
Science has long determined that the so-called man tracks are misinterpretations and hoaxes. The origin of the man tracks must be sought in the early 1930s. Genuine dinosaur tracks were hacked out of the rock and sold, and when they started to run out, George Adams, a local sculptor, just made some more, while adding human footprints as well.
