I heard Palin's church believes dinosaurs were killed by God 4000 years ago so we could have oil, is that true?

I heard Palin's church believes dinosaurs were killed by God 4000 years ago so we could have oil, is that true? Topic: Post claim when writing a paper
July 22, 2019 / By Elizabeth
Question: I heard that her church believes Satan put dinosaurs on Earth, but God killed them off 4000 years ago so their bodies could provide us with oil today; I also heard they think Alaska will become the promise land at the end of times. Is that true? I couldn't find much information on it. Can someone help me out by providing some sort of article or link describing her church's views. I can't believe anyone willing to throw out science would make it so close to the presidency (VP is literally a heart beat away) so I have my doubts about these claims, but I have also heard she supports creationism being taught in school. Who's spouting absolute lies Hillary? I asked a question. And creationism has no place in school whether taught or discussed. It has no scientific bounds whatsoever and therefor does not belong in science class... or should they ad a creationism class? And ya, lol, I did hear it from Matt Damon's youtube video... which is why I'm looking around for actual information... I think I'm going about this pretty darn logically. I'm not assuming anything. Good point smsmith500... Obama's church pastor did say some crazy things which is why I'm forestalling judgment of Palin until I have heard her opinions through her own mouth... and to be fair Obama's pastor had kept those radical ideas to himself and only brought them up when Obama's fame gave him national attention, plus Obama publicly stated he shared no such beliefs... Palin's church is very open about there radical beliefs and Palin has said nothing about it... which is why I'm worried and trying to find information. Johnny Sokko... Beowulf talks about a hairy man beast terrorizing the country side, does that mean that proves there was a missing link? The Bible was not written as a scientific paper and should not be taken as such. Thanks Mel, Evita, and R8derMike. You guys seem to be some of the few who realize this was a question... a question on Yahoo! Answers... go figure. Very informative stuff, its going to be tough choosing Best Answer =)

From the Anchorage Daily News: Later, senior pastor Ed Kalnins -- with Palin standing at his side -- spoke about tapping into Alaska's natural resource wealth in order to fulfill the state's destiny of serving as a shelter for Christians at the end of the world. "I believe that Alaska is one of the 'refuge states' -- come on you guys -- in the Last Days," Kalnins said, raising his arm to underscore his point. "And hundreds of thousands of people are going to come to this state to seek refuge. And the church has to be ready to minister to them." http://www.adn.com/news/alaska/story/518514.html From FoxNews: ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Gov. Sarah Palin’s church is promoting a conference that promises to convert gays into heterosexuals through the power of prayer. “You’ll be encouraged by the power of God’s love and His desire to transform the lives of those impacted by homosexuality,” according to the insert in the bulletin of the Wasilla Bible Church, where Palin has prayed for about six years. http://elections.foxnews.com/2008/09/06/palins-church-promoting-conference-aimed-at-converting-gays/ From the Minneapolis Star Tribune: Palin asked the students to pray for the troops in Iraq, and noted that her eldest son, Track, was expected to be deployed there. "Our national leaders are sending them out on a task that is from God," she said. "That's what we have to make sure that we're praying for, that there is a plan and that plan is God's plan." A video of the speech was posted at the Wasilla Assembly of God's Web site before finding its way on to other sites on the Internet. Palin told graduating students of the church's School of Ministry, "What I need to do is strike a deal with you guys." As they preached the love of Jesus throughout Alaska, she said, she'd work to implement God's will from the governor's office, including creating jobs by building a pipeline to bring North Slope natural gas to North American markets. "God's will has to be done in unifying people and companies to get that gas line built, so pray for that," she said http://www.startribune.com/politics/27831874.html

Chris Originally Answered: I heard in the next 3-4 years that the worse flu ever will be in the u.s., is it true?
Not necessarily. Influenza is a cyclic disease. Some years are very mild, while some seem to infect many more and the symptoms are very bad. She may be thinking of the avian influenza that we're hearing about from many places in the world. The event that may trigger a significant outbreak is human-to-human transmission. The virus must have the specific adaptability to spread this way. Currently it has not been proven that this is occurring. However, influenza is very mutagenic and it is only a matter of time before it has this ability. A vaccine can be made, however the vaccine makers must wait till the virus has become its most infective form. The vaccine will not be effective against variants of the virus, so if they make it too early, then it will not fully protect you when the virus hits. The effectiveness of the vaccine is partly based on the composition of the inactivated virus, however it is mostly based on the response your own immune system. The vaccine will be effective when its produced. Flu vaccine processing has been perfected over the last 20 or more years. Its just a matter of getting the vaccine in the correct form, at he correct time, to protect the public. I get the flu vaccine every year. Even though the viruses are somewhat different year to year, you can build some general immunity to the influenza virus over the years. According to influenza researchers, we are overdue for an influenza epidemic. Don't get all bent out of shape just yet.

No as far as I know this is not fact. And it is good to go to Fact Check and Politfact to sort out these kinds of rumors and misinformation on all fronts. She is certainly not mainstream or willing to accept her Constitutional limits. But both she and McCain have openly ridiculed evolution as not being a fact. That is mainly because of what a "scientific theory' is vs what a garden variety theory is. Evolution is a fact. It produces results based on using it as a fact. So it is open because we do not know all the facts DNA did not change but supported evolution just as finding another planet revolving around the sun does not change the fact that the earth is not flat and revolves around the sun. The same for geology and other sciences. Creationism should not be discussed in the public schools unless we want to have a comparative religion course that covers the Hopi and Navajo Creation Myth, Jewish and all other religious beliefs of how and when the earth was formed and when a soul enters a fetus and it becomes a human being. In the past Presidents have sworn to uphold the Constitution and there integrity and intelligence and respect for religious freedom for all resulted in a very secular document to avoid putting one belief ahead of another. John Adams for example did not believe, as a Unitarian, that Christ was divine. That is not one of their beliefs. But he did not propose it be taught or discussed in the schools. The Gettysburg address does not call on God to help out. Lincoln from most accounts was either agnostic or an atheist. He did not suggest the Country follow or teach his beliefs. For those of us who really love our Constitution and understand how many different religions there are, and how many have set aside their most deeply held personal convictions to respect the rights of all convictions. Sarah Palin is not acceptable. Make no mistake about it our own students in the sciences are being 'dumbed down' in the sciences already because of books that are written especially in the early grade to cater to the large book markets where the review Boards are pushing as hard as possible to accept texts that do not create any waves. Texas and are not as rigorous as those in the past. That we are selling out our scientific birthright to other Countries and have been for a long time. I taught second grade science and I taught science. If some parent wanted to object I was a parent myself and not a teacher trying to do a balancing act. The kids really blossomed and were way ahead of the other science classes. The book was atrocious but we used a lot of real sources. So do not buy this idea that McCain can use Bear DNA studies as an example of pork barrel spending or downgrade stem cell research etc. For a parent who as very proud that her sons have advanced degrees in the sciences this is insulting and very divisive and totally backward. The other industrialized nations are far ahead of us on tests and evaluations of students in science and math. Under a McCain Palin Presidency that will continue due to funding priorities and educational manipulation.

OH yeah. Shes a loopy creationist. She thinks there have been cavemen walking around the comparable time as dinosaurs, like the flinstones. LOL. She would not have self belief in technological understanding, carbon relationship, international warming, good judgment generally. yet, in her protection, she isn't that smart in spite of everything her purely degree grow to be an undergraduate degree in COMMUNICATIONS from the U of Idaho.

Small minds believe all kinds of things. Yes I hear that OVER a week back too. Old news...catch up people. Thanks for that article Mel. If I may a small clip from that: (Ah I see you just posted it, well let me REPEAT it then!) ;~) Later, senior pastor Ed Kalnins -- with Palin standing at his side -- spoke about tapping into Alaska's natural resource wealth in order to fulfill the state's destiny of serving as a shelter for Christians at the end of the world. "I believe that Alaska is one of the 'refuge states' -- come on you guys -- in the Last Days," Kalnins said, raising his arm to underscore his point. "And hundreds of thousands of people are going to come to this state to seek refuge. And the church has to be ready to minister to them." -And they say Obama's minister was a nutjob.

Not sure. This is what she does believe: Six years ago, Palin left Assembly of God to join the non-denominational Wasilla Bible Church. But the Assembly of God says she still returns for special conferences and events, such as the graduation of ministry students in June. Video of a speech she gave at the church just two months before joining the Republican ticket is making the rounds on the Internet. Speaking of the troops in Iraq, Palin says on the video, "Pray for our military men and women who are striving do to what is right. Also for this country, that our leaders, our national leaders, are sending them out on a task that is from God. That's what we have to make sure that we're praying for -- that there is a plan, and that plan is God's plan." Watch Palin speak at her former church » Her campaign says she doesn't mix her faith with government business. But Palin did ask her audience to pray for a $30 billion natural gas pipeline she is on a mission to build in Alaska. In the video Palin says, "I think God's will has to be done in unifying people and companies to get that gas pipeline built. So pray for that ... I can do my job there in developing my natural resources. But all of that doesn't do any good if the people of Alaska's heart is not good with God."

Ossian Originally Answered: What killed the dinosaurs?
My GOD there are some terrible answers here. First of all, you can safely ignore any Creationist interpretations of how or when dinosaurs died out, unless you want to hear an idea that's spawned from a complete disregard for scientific evidence. Let's get some things straight right up front. Contrary to what any conspiracy-theory spouting Creationists would have you believe (chas_chas, I'm looking at you), dinosaurs did NOT ever live alongside man. Non-avian dinosaurs died out 65 million years ago. We know that because the last dinosaur fossil appears in rock strata that have been accurately dated as 65 million years old by a variety of methods. There were primates on Earth at that point, but nothing remotely resembling a human. True humans appeard a few hundred thousand years ago, well after dinosaurs bit the big one. So what's to blame for their disappearance? We know that a catastrophic asteroid impact occurred somewhere around that time. Besides having the actual crater (it's buried under the Gulf of Mexico) that shows a tremendous impact happening around the right time, there's also a thin layer of iridium-rich rock that appears in the geological record at the same time. Iridium is rare on Earth but common in asteroids and comets. So, it makes sense that about 65 million years ago, a comet or asteroid slammed into Earth, carving out a huge crater while simultaneously ejecting iridium into the atmosphere to settle down all over the world. The fact that an impact occurred is not seriously debated. The debate is about whether the impact could cause the extinction of every last dinosaur (except the ones that had become birds). Newer hypotheses suggest that, while the impact would certainly have been disastrous, there must certainly have been other changes in progress that weakened the reign of dinosaurs to the point of collapse. For example, it is also known that a massive amount of volcanic activity was taking place at the end of the Cretaceous. A hotbed of volcanic activity near present-day India may have released enough carbon dioxide and other pollutants to poison the atmosphere and lead to runaway global warming. As entire ecosystems collapsed, so did the dinosaurs. Only the smaller animals, which presumably were better suited to thriving on a variety of nutrients, survived the extinction event. Any major climate change could presumably have killed the dinosaurs, whether it was caused by an impact, volcanism, or anything else. Although I'm not 100% certain, I doubt very seriously that mammal competition could have undone the dinosaurs. Mammals lived in the shadow of dinosaurs for many millions of years and never fluorished until the dinosaurs were gone. I hope that helps. Good luck.
