Sarah Palin is a Creationist

Posted by Bill Nance on August 29, 2008

I cannot believe a candidate for the Vice President of the United States in America still has the gumption to say shit like this in public.

On the issue of creationism in public schools, Palin, in a gubernatorial debate in 2006 said the following:

“PALIN: “Teach both. You know, don’t be afraid of information.
“Healthy debate is so important and it’s so valuable in our schools. I am a proponent of teaching both.
“And, you know, I say this, too, as the daughter of a science teacher. Growing up with being so privileged and blessed to be given a lot of information on, on both sides of the subject — creationism and evolution.
“It’s been a healthy foundation for me. But don’t be afraid of information and let kids debate both sides.””


One “side” is religion. And one kind of religion at that. How about the Thunderbird origin of the universe? How about Odin? Oh, I guess they don’t count if you’re a religious zealot.

The Creationists have been making this stupid claim that they have a valid alternative to science since Darwin published his work. Their claims have one, exactly and only one basis: their holy book. That’s it, that’s all. And just for the record, even the Catholic Church doesn’t teach this crap as science. So don’t try to play all persecuted.

When will people in this country wake up to the fact that a scientific theory is not a half-assed opinion? The “Theory” of evolution is an explanation of observable data.  That things evolve is not a theory, it’s a FACT. You can repeat it in a fucking laboratory!

Jesus H. Christ on a cracker, first McCain picks Dan Quayle with boobs, now we find out she’s a religious extremist as well?

It turns out she is a member of the Assemblies of God, which is a Pentecostal sect. You know, the same one as John Ashcroft, the guy who had his staff cover an 80-year-old statue of Lady Justice because a boob was exposed? The people who speak in tongues and roll on the floor? Yes,  these folks. In case you weren’t aware, these folks put the fundament in fundamentalist.

This day is just getting more depressing by the moment.

    It’s not Jesus H. Christ on a cracker, so much as Jesus H. Christ is the cracker. [sarcasm] Awesome, no? [/sarcasm]

    Hi michael, thanks for the comment.
    Ya, I’m as strong as it gets on people’s right to believe and worship as they please. But a politician who wears their religion on their sleeve, much less tries to inject sectarian religion into state business is just scary. Bush was like that, so was Carter. Look what we got.

  3. […] an earlier post, I referred ro Palin as “Dan Quayle with Boobs.” I apologize to Vice President Quayle. […]

  4. […] Oh, and on the subject of science, did I mention that Sarah Palin wants to teach the biblical genesis account of creation in public school biology courses? […]

  5. […] evidence that having an ignorant, uneducated, religious nutbag who believes in  WITCHES and thinks the world is 6,000 years old isn’t appealing to sane people as a potential […]

  6. […] to a secessionist movement, not a shred of understanding of ANY issue of national importance and a religious fanatic to boot, was frankly the most horrendously cynical and irresponsible move by a major party […]
