Palin believes men, dinosaurs coexisted

Vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin has suggested that men and dinosaurs coexisted on an Earth created 6,000 years ago, a report says.

Scientists believe that most dinosaurs became extinct about 65 million years ago.

A local music teacher at Wasilla told the Los Angeles Times that soon after Sarah Palin was elected the mayor of the Alaskan town, she told him that, "Dinosaurs and humans walked the Earth at the same time."

A startled Philip Munger, who teaches music at the University of Alaska in Anchorage, then confronted the newly elected mayor about prehistoric fossils and tracks dating back millions of years.

Palin responded by saying that "she had seen pictures of human footprints inside the tracks," Munger recalled.

According to the report, Palin's view shares the idea of "young Earth creationism" - which holds God created the Earth about 6,000 years ago, and dinosaurs and humans coexisted early on.

While only 35 days are left until the general election, Sarah Palin - who was tapped as Republican presidential nominee John McCain's running mate on Aug 29 - remains relatively unknown on the national stage.

John McCain, who celebrated his 72nd birthday on Aug 29, has made it clear that should he win the White House bid in 2008, he would not seek a second term.

According to the actuarial tables insurance companies use to evaluate customers, there is a roughly 1 in 3 chance that a 72-year-old man will not reach the age of 80 - without factoring in individual medical history, such as McCain's lengthy battles with potentially lethal skin cancer.

After Palin's painful interview with CBS's Katie Couric on Sep 24, pundits now question whether the Alaska governor is qualified to run the United States.

In her interview, Gov. Palin failed to convince viewers of her understanding of the country's ailing economy. She also managed to raise eyebrows after failing to prove her foreign policy credentials.

I'm starting to suspect presstv.ir is some kind of J-wish front. They had the same message as Saturday Night Live.

This is a belief.  There is no science since no men lived then.

I do not blame her for believing that.  Look at McCain - he is a dinosaur - and apparently coexists with men.  Although there are only a few real men left in America.

We all know our oligarchs want Obama to win, but something tells me it's not a sure thing with all the 24/7 hits against Sara.
