    Run for office.

    They do: write in. At least write in an eligible and worthy candidate. Not voting is a dereliction of duty. If I decide to write in (not sure yet), it will be Rand Paul.

    You also have the Libertarian Party candidate, which should be on the ballot.

    With the microwave background radiation as the frame of reference, the earth is less than 6 days old. There is a religiously plausible frame of reference available to make the universe any of the popular ages. The mysterious wording of Genesis 1 had been interpreted to match wildly different cosmologies from Aristotle to Big Bang – and it matches them quite well.

    For an actual conflict between science and the Bible, look no further than the flood of Noah. And the conflict is mainly over age – there is plenty of water in the transition mantel as hydroxide dissolved under pressure in ringwoodite to fill the oceans three times over.

    The first two frames are in Africa. The tigers and elephants are in India – note the small ears. The next frame is in mountainous Japan, and the last two in Western US. All very logical, even if they did go the long way ’round.

    Not a Gore fan, but he did not claim to have invented the internet. He claimed to have pushed to fund (with taxpayer money) the development of the internet. Which is largely true.

    In a similar vein, Sarah Palin did not claim to see Russia from her house. That was a late night comedienne spoofing her.
