How embarrassing. What a complete moron.

Question : When was this "age of the dinosaurs" according to you??? Probably only a few thousand years ago, hahaha! Nice example of using science only then it is convenient to you.

The esteemed representative tells us about a perfect and infallible passage of from the book of Genesis that describes about God's promises after a flood that never happened and then he tells us about levels of CO2 in the atmosphere a couple of hundred million years before that in the time of the dinosaurs. I'm still unclear – were the dinosaurs on the ark or not?

Maybe the snake in the Garden of Eden was a dinosaur, the apple was CO2 emissions, and the ark happens in the future and not the past.

Which reminds me, I need to go rotate my crops.

Wow. If only this happened a year ago when I was living in his district I'd make sure he was no where near close to being re-elected.

Well played, Senator.... well played.

As a (human) biologist I am getting tired of my fellow humans assuming that the Earth equates to their environment. The Earth was here millions of years before humanity and will, almost certainly, be here millions of years after humans are extinct. When people talk of "Saving the Earth" they almost always seem to mean "Saving our supportive environment". The Earth will continue to exist until the final cataclysm when the Sun explodes, whether we are there or not. Humans are so self-centred yet so unwilling to admit their selfishness. Still, maybe the good representative from Illinois is right and we have nothing to worry about - let's be open minded about these things.
