    Surely, you've heard about the dust eating ex dinosaurs? It's recorded in the same place where Paul Revere rode off to warn the British that they couldn't take our guns away, where we find that the moon landing was faked, that Bush was behind 9/11, where high flying jet planes are spraying us with chemicals, and global warming is a hoax. Let's see, did I leave anything out of that? Oh, the aliens who actually were behind the Kennedy assassination.
    Well, derp! I mean, who DIDN'T know about the aliens behind the Kennedy assassination. You think you're so smart. WhyIoughtta. etc.

    History of dinosuars

    Creation science asserts that the biblical account, that dinosaurs were created on day 6 of creation[3] approximately 6,000 years ago, along with other land animals, and therefore co-existed with humans, thus debunking the Theory of Evolution and the beliefs of evolutionary scientists about the age of the earth.

    Creation science shows that dinosaurs lived in harmony with other animals, (probably including in the Garden of Eden) eating only plants[4]; that pairs of each dinosaur kind were taken onto Noah's Ark during the Great Flood and were preserved from drowning[5]; that many of the fossilized dinosaur bones originated during the mass killing of the Flood[6]; and that possibly some descendants of those dinosaurs taken aboard the Ark are still around today.[7]

    Archaeological, fossil, and documentary evidence supports the logical conclusion that dinosaurs co-existed with mankind until at least relatively recent times.

    emphasis mine.

    BTW, you're unfairly and innacurately giving the impression that the entire entry you linked to is of the same opinion as the minority the word SOME describes. Anyone who goes to the link and actually looks at the page will find that the vast majority of it does NOT hold with the opinions of the minority 'creationist' conservatives.

    For example, this section describes the generally accepted extinction even theory...
    Extinction:
    According to evolutionists, close to 65 million years ago, at the end of the Cretaceous period, and the beginning of what is called the Tertiary period, an event occurred which has come to be known as the K-T Event. This event would have obliterated most life on Earth, plunging the world into something that would now be likened to global nuclear winter, through which few extant species could survive. Although these scientists dispute the nature of the K-T Event (selecting among any number of catastrophes that could have caused the significant global cooling that resulted), most find that the claimed K-T Event was caused by the collision of a massive asteroid with the Earth, the dust and debris from which would have shrouded the sky for thousands of years, cooling Earth considerably.[33] According to this view, the dinosaurs did not survive this cataclysm.[34] A layer of rock containing high concentrations of Iridium, a metal that is extremely rare on earth but common in asteroids, is said to be due to the vaporization and then fall of dust from the meteorite's impact, and its compression within the subsequent geological record.[35]The evidence of a large impact crater can be found in rocks of the Yucatán Peninsula of the supposed age of this layer.[36] [37] Creationists assert that the assumptions underpinning the methods used by modern geologists are incorrect, and even though the validity of a large impact is accepted, this does not consitute proof that the impact caused the extinction of the dinosaurs—although the abundance of dinosaur fossils in rocks found higher in the rock layers than the impact is drastically less than their abundance in rocks lower down.
    Essentially, this page is not a description of what Conservatives believe. It is a description of what some 'creationist' conservatives believe. It also shows what most 'evolutionist' conservatives believe.

    The linked page is simply stating what the two 'competing' sides believe, without actually taking a stronger position on one that the other.

    Sure she did. Are you going to go against the Director of the Paul Revere House... but that would be silly...

    "Revere's assignment that night was to go to Lexington to warn Samuel Adams and John Hancock that British troops were moving in that direction from Boston," explained Kristin Peszka, director of interpretation and visitor's services at the Paul Revere House, which Palin visited Thursday.

    It was an extremely complicated situation which she sort of regurgitated in a garbled way," Boston University's Brendan McConville said.

    "He didn't warn the British," said James Giblin, author of "The Many Rides of Paul Revere." "That's her most obvious blooper."

    To the source: In a 1798 letter, Revere wrote that after being captured by British officers during the midnight ride, he told them "there would be five hundred Americans there in a short time for I had alarmed the Country all the way up." Does that mean he warned the British? Not exactly.

    "He wasn't really warning the British when he was a captive," said "Rides of Paul Revere" author Giblin. "He was just, in a way, boasting about the capabilities of Americans. 'You don't know what you're going to be up against,' etc. He was playing the patriot even there. He did maybe inflate the American strength, but that was to throw the British off guard. He was propagandizing, really."

    You think she's stupid, because the media has told you to think she is stupid. I bet you think Hirohito was on the Missouri and sign the surrender, too.

    When that "actual historian" is actually not a historian, but a lawyer and law professor, and the commentary piece cited is really just passing on information from that lawyers blog.

    In truth, it was just one blogger vs another blogger.

    I wasn't about to paste their entire page here. Someone mentioned the ridiculous notion some believe about dinosaurs walking with man and I expanded on that by showing the relevant portion from a Conservapedia.com page.

    That was in response to a Conservative who posted an op/ed and it was an instrument in highlighting the ridiculousness of referencing an op/ed as fact.

    Still waiting for an answer, btw ...

    Do you think Obama doesn't know what year it is or do you think he had a brain fart when he wrote 2008

    FFG...

    Bad advice indeedy!

    And I totally agree that if she could put aside her ego and just own up that she's capable of making mistakes...she'd definitely kill stories. But I guess that she sees negative press as better than no press.

    For Palin to say, "OOOoops!" would be a Utopian gesture. But her usual responses to her ****ups are much more like all of the politicians who caught in acts of indiscretion and cry, whine, and claiming they have been victimized.

    Understood. However your post painted the page as being mostly about or in agreement with that mistaken notion. I was simply pointing out that was not the case.
