Wow. Just wow. You need to watch this to -- ahem! -- believe it. This guy, Steven Fielding, an Australian Parliamentarian, dodges, ducks, dips, dives and dodges so well he could be an American politician! Did you notice anything about what he said? Like, how he never answered the actual question? I do have to wonder about his exact reasons for dodging Richard Dawkins' questions about the age of the Earth. It's almost as if he's embarrassed by his own beliefs, knowing how old-fashioned, provincial, and downright wrong they must sound.
