As something I read put it, "Better an elected official who believes in Creationism than one who believes in Keynesianism."

It's okay to be wrong on the issues that don't matter if you're right on the ones that do. Which is why liberals try to turn the debate to the issues that don't.

Trust Fund sounds like a real douche, making stuff up about Rubio for no reason other to slander him and to distract people from the failing economy. The commenter at DE Liberal is right about the Bible not saying that the Earth is only 10,000 years old.... that whole notion comes from the 17th century: the Ussher chronology.

Jason Scott is a racist. Period. Every single time any conservative that isn't white makes any sort of comment Trust Fund doesn't agree with, Jason attacks far, far worse than he does white conservatives. Every single time.

"Better an elected official who believes in Creationism than one who believes in Keynesianism."

Imagining things about the past or supposedly calculating the difference between 10,000 solar years and billions of years aside, that's the most relevant point here and now.

Although on a general note, imagining that everything arises from a void until there are some biological brain events which observe the void of their own "Big Bang" in the past is probably linked to the view that you can get more of something (the creation of wealth and things of value) for essentially nothing (shifting paper ponzi around in pyramid $chemes).

Imagining things about the past is fun but people need to be able to focus on reality here and now at some point.

Jason Scott is a racist.

Shrug, probably a Mason...

Kind of ironic that he thinks he knows the age of the earth based on solar years and probably the Cosmos or multiple universes too. But there you go.
