When you say it with authority, maybe you’ll be believed

The saying goes “When you can’t do, teach.”  Well maybe it needs to be updated with “When you’re incompetent, represent.”  Arizona State Senator Sylvia Allen uses her “knowledge” that the earth is 6000 years old to explain why her state should welcome uranium waste.  Her logic is that since the earth has been here for 6000 years and “hasn’t been done away with” there is nothing to fear.  Pretty ironic that scientists use uranium decay to date the earth to well over 6000 years, but that’s not important when you have a nice book to tell you what is really true.
