Those two times that Huppenthal defended Sylvia Allen for saying the Earth is 6000 years old on this blog

A reporter has asked me for all the comments John Huppenthal made as Falcon9 and as I was compiling them I noticed that there were two different times that he (hilariously) defended former Senator Sylvia Allen for saying that the Earth is 6000 years old at a committee hearing on uranium mining at the Grand Canyon.

You have to be as smart as Sylvia Allen to understand her comment. She is referencing the commonly accepted benchmark of 6,000 years of recorded human history. But, if you don’t know that there are 6,000 years of recorded human history, you think she’s dumb. But, who is really dumb? Someone who doesn’t know enough to understand her comment or Allen who knows her history?

You have to be minimally intelligent to understand Allen’s comment. Knowledgeable people understand that human civilization is estimated to be 6,000 years old. Who’s dumb you or her? She didn’t give a spiritual reference of 4,000 years

Huh? Watch for yourself to see what she said exactly:

It’s (the Earth) been here 6000 years, long before anyone had environmental laws and somehow it hasn’t been done away with.

She clearly said the Earth has been here 6000 years. Young Earth Creationists such as Allen don’t accept the scientific evidence that our planet existed long before humans did so there would be no reason for her to make a distinction between the age of the Earth and human civilization. Huppenthal simply invented a context in a lame attempt to give Allen cover, much as he did with the Little Red Hen reference that suddenly materialized when he was called upon to explain his own pseudonymous blog comment calling poor people lazy pigs.
