IT’S AMAZING what a search on Palin creationism will turn up these days. We’ve largely abandoned our quest for legitimate news articles with accurate information about Palin’s troubling but seemingly low-key creationism — which she never attempted to insert into the science curriculum of Alaska’s schools. All that remains is amusing ourselves with various demonstrations of what has come to be known as Palin Derangement Syndrome. Behold:
In something called College on the Record, which says this about itself: “CollegeOTR is the country’s premiere college blog, capturing the best of everything that happens at college,” we read Alaskan Music Teacher Confirms Sarah Palin Thought Dinosaurs, Mankind Coexisted.
It’s a fifth-hand account about an alleged university music teacher, allegedly named Philip Munger, who allegedly claims that he had a long-ago conversation with Sarah, during which she allegedly made a goofy statement about dinosaurs and humans, which then was then described in an alleged email, which then blossomed all over the internet. An excerpt:
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…
It’s on the internet, and it turns up in a Google search, so it must be true!
Here’s another, appearing at the site of something called Atlantic Free Press, founded in September 2006 by Richard Kastelein of V.O.F. Expathos, in the Netherlands. They say this about themselves:
The mission of AF Press is simple: to dig out nuggets of truth from the slag-heap of lies, ignorance and witless diversion that has buried public discourse today. AF Press provides a new venue for disseminating hard news and insightful, fact-based analysis of the harsh realities too often ignored or distorted by the mainstream press.
You can’t go wrong with a website like that, where you can read: Death Becomes Her: Let’s Make Her Our President . Excerpt, with bold added for emphasis:
Savage animal slaughterer that she is, it’s apt that Sarah Palin has now brutally plunged a razor-sharp knife into the very heart of the seemingly invincible doubts concerning her capacity to be Vice-President of the United States. Wielding her chutzpah with the awe-inspiring deftness with which she employs her gun or rifle when hunting defenseless wolves or moose, she appeared on 20/20 and left our skepticism writhing on the ground in agony, immersed in its own blood and gasping its last.
That’s just the opening paragraph. Here’s the end of the article:
Whether we are conscious of it or not, we US Americans are all (to varying degrees), perpetuating the malignant expansion of our culture of death. We are the cancer. The Earth is the patient. And the prognosis is not very reassuring.
Sarah Palin. Death becomes her. And we have become death. Now that’s a match made in Hell. Let’s make her our president….or at least put her one 72 year old heartbeat away…..
Hey, it’s on the internet, so it must be true! A little bit of creationism goes a long way.
