The Headline Says it All

Republicans fire 2016 starting gun at Christian college that teaches world is 6,000 years old

It didn't take the media long to latch on to that one, did it?   From the story:
The first Republican candidate for the 2016 US general election will officially declare his campaign on Monday at an Evangelical university that denies Darwin’s theory of evolution and teaches that the world is only 6,000 years old.

Senator Ted Cruz, a Tea Party darling from Texas with a reputation as a firebrand rhetorician, will announce his candidacy at Liberty University, a college for Evangelical Christians in the state of Virginia that claims to be the largest Christian university in the world.
This is the first of many such characterizations that will come, I am sure.


  1. They are talking about HUMANS, and just left off the last three zeros. Give them a break, they're not that great at math.

  2. That's really funny!

    Makes me wish the media would cover the science illiteracy that I believe manifests itself on the left - alternative medicine. The media loves to ask GOP candidates if they believe in evolution, but never want to ask Democrats if they believe in alternative medicine, UFOs, etc.

  4. A health official was once asked where the pockets of anti-vaccine folks were and he pointed at a map and said (paraphrased): "just stick a pin where there is a Whole Foods. That is where they are."
