Via ClimateProgress (who got it from Barefoot and Progressive), we get Kentucky’s Republican nominee for the US Senate, Rand Paul, at an event for local homeschoolers. At the top of the Q&A, he’s asked when he became a Christian and how old the earth his.
Paul has no trouble giving a detailed account of where his Christianity came from, giving a careful timeline of not just the origins of his Christian faith, but his anti-abortion position. When it gets time to answer the second part of the question he gets tongue-tied, answering:
Iâm gonna have to pass on the age of the earth. I think Iâm just gonna have to pass on that one.
Perhaps he should spend a little less time studying his own biography, and learn a little bit about the world around him.
