I just wish he wouldn’t make it so hard. I have never met Mr. Westlake, and he seems by all accounts to be a very nice person. I also fully respect the campaign he has run(although I dont understand how he can do it), but getting out and meeting people and being willing to give interviews or talk to anyone has to be commended. I just wish he wasn’t totally insane.
I was trying to catch the weather tonight on my local newscast and up pops Dave with less of an understanding of science than my soon to be 2nd grader.
– Dave Westlake, a Republican running for U.S. Senate, says creationism should be taught in Wisconsin schools and that the earth is thousands, not billions of years old.
When asked if the earth was around 6,000 years old, as some creationists believe, Westlake said, “That’s probably a general timeline. There are very solid supporting evidence out there, or data out there, that shows that it’s very reasonable to expect that it’s not nearly as old as science says it is.”
Im guessing he is basing his “theory” on the Pet Dinosaur that his great great great great grandfather used to have as a pet maybe?
Then as if that was not enough he comes up with this lunacy
The sad thing is he might be the most intelligent and sane republican in our state that is running for office.
