It would be comedy if they weren’t so serious.

Want to see what happens when you toss confidence into a cauldron with a couple of dipshits and stir?

Laugh it up.  These guys don’t have the first clue how we’ve determined the age of the earth and to the pretty precise extent we’ve done it, but they’re sure laughing at scientists.  Of course, right after chortling at the idea that the earth is 4.54 billion years old, one of them says he knows there was a garden of Eden.  They scoff at the claims of science, giggling like mad that science thinks it can reasonably be so precise, and then they go positively apeshit talking about how they know all kinds of crazy things.

Take a moment and realize that a scary number of Americans are laughing right along with them, and that Glenn Beck makes more money than pretty much any scientists.  Millions of Americans really do think that these people are more reliable than the people representing the discipline that gave them television.
