Rand Paul Cowers In The Face Of Questions

QUESTION: Was there a point in life where you became a Christian [...] and also, how old is the world? PAUL: I forgot to say I was only taking easy questions (crowd laughs). [...] I’m gonna have to pass on the age of the earth. I think I’m just gonna have to pass on that one.

 Uuuuuh, this is good.  There's nothing like a self-proclaimed Republican, wanna be fundie hypocrite being put on the spot. 

I'm really curious to know whether he "thinks" the Earth is 3,000 or 6,000 years old.  I also wonder if he also thinks it's flat.  He he...

I believe you have been overly critical of an individual who is obviously more honest in his answers to the audience than any politician I have been exposed to in the last fifty years of my adult life. He gave an honest answer to how old the planet Earth is. No one knows that answer. Fundamentalists believe it is only 6,000 years of age, and that is from a misinterpretation of the scripture on what in 'those days' really means, etc. Presbyterians do not give an altar call, and others believe in baptism, etc. for salvation. So what if he does not know when he was originally a Christian. Fundamentalists do no not like libertarian thought theology, because it is a little above their find of thinking with their five fundamental doctrines. Too bad that one who believes as they do would never be elected. Jimmy Carter was one who said he was a "true" believer, and look where he took the country?!!! Dr. Rand Paul is a true believer in the U.S. Constitution, and he is one who represents the founding fathers more than any electable candidate presently running. Stop knocking a  future great statesman in the image of his father another fine doctor of medicine presently in the congress of the U.S.

 Jack Gregson,

What is your bank account number?

When did you stop beating your wife?

What is the inverse square of the hypotenuse of an isoceles triangle and it's opposite angle and can you map out the cosine wave for it?

If not, why are you running for Senate?

Oh, you are not?  Then what the hell does any of this have to do with Rand Paul's candidacy?
