Harriet Miers and Carl Baugh ... Connecting the Dots

Supreme Court nominee Harriet Miers has

given 10 percent to 12 percent of her earnings – “if not more” – to the evangelical Valley View Christian Church in Dallas, where she has been a congregant for about 25 years

according to Judge Nathan Hecht of the Texas Supreme Court, who has dated Miers. This Newsday article has the details.

What has this to do with Panda’s Thumb? A lot!

It so happens that the “Useful Links” page for Miers’s Valley View Christian Church links prominently to the Creation Evidence Museum, run by Dr. Carl Baugh, a creationist who is so far out as to have been strongly criticized by Answers in Genesis and the Creation Science Foundation. Baugh is perhaps most famous for his fakey “Paluxy Mantrack” footprints, specifically the “Burdick Print,” and his fossilized human finger.

A YEC on the Supreme Court? Connect the dots, people … connect the dots.
