There are times when people write things on the internet that are the intellectual equivalent of tightening a waist belt around a major artery until your eyes cross and limbs go limp.

This is one of those times.

There were several particularly, harrowingly dumb statements from politicians and media personalities that stood out this past week. Among them were Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle suggesting that young women were too busy being hot and care-free to vote or serve on juries properly, and Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) saying that gay people in the military is a bad idea because of all those massages theyd be giving each other. (If you know anything about Gohmert, that wont surprise you.) But the award for the most impressive of the harrowingly dumb things said or written this past week goes to Joseph Farah.

You might remember Farah. Hes a 60-year-old New Jersey native who runs a far-right website called WorldNetDaily. He was one of the leading voices in the Obama-wasnt-born-here (or birther) movement. He also views marriage equality as the new tyranny.

And here he comes to troll you on Gods creation.

In a WND column, Farah reminds his audience that Oct. 23 is the day that Archbishop James Ussher determined was the day the Lord created Earth in 4004 BC. Therefore, we may have just celebrated Earths 6,028th birthday.

Obviously, its hard to find a reputable scientist or elementary school kid who believes that Planet Earth is a few thousand, not billions, years aged.

But Farah scribbles as rebuttal:

I know what some of you are thinking: Farah, what about the dinosaurs that were tens of millions of years old? How do you explain that? Quite simply, I dont believe it. Throughout mans history, in every culture, we have stories, pictures and sculptures depicting dragons and leviathans and sea serpents. Are we to believe these were all concocted in mans imagination? Even the Bible references such observations. If behemoths like the one described in chapter 40 of the Book of Job somehow threatened the Bible account of history, I dont think it would be there.

But heres the bottom line: Is it crazier for me to believe the world is around 6,000 years old than it is to accept as scientific fact that it is actually millions or billions of years old?

Wheres the proof? Either way.


Farah, of course, is not alone in holding this acrobatically irrational view. Roughly 40 percent of Americans seem to endorse some Creationist concept of history and origin.

So, cool.

And Climate Change alarmists think the climate hasn't changed in billions of years. Whose the bigger idiot?

FYI: the Earth is billions of years old and the climate has always changed

"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies."
