So what if 99% of credible scientists say that the universe is 14.6 billion years old and can use a multitude of dating methods to prove so? My pastor (who also doesn't have a degree in physics) says the world is 6000 years old because that's what the Bible says. Dinosaur bones are just a satanic plot!
It's such a shame that possibly the greatest nation in Earth's history, which found its success (among other things) through development of new technologies and scientific research, has come to a place where Scientists, Professors and Intellectuals have become demonized and uninformed people who tell others what to think are celebrated. That is the true reason for America's decline.
