In a Salon.com Article, Wasilla Resident Philip Munger Claims that Sarah Palin Told Him She is a Young Earth Creationist and a Believer in the Imminent Return of Jesus (in Her Lifetime)

According to a report in Salon.com, Philip Munger, a Wasilla resident who has had local political run-ins with Sarah Palin, says that Palin believes in both young earth creationism AND the imminent second coming of Jesus (in her lifetime).

Money quote from the Salon article:

Another valley activist, Philip Munger, says that Palin also helped push the evangelical drive to take over the Mat-Su Borough school board. “She wanted to get people who believed in creationism on the board,” said Munger, a music composer and teacher. “I bumped into her once after my band played at a graduation ceremony at the Assembly of God. I said, ‘Sarah, how can you believe in creationism — your father’s a science teacher.’ And she said, ‘We don’t have to agree on everything.’

“I pushed her on the earth’s creation, whether it was really less than 7,000 years old and whether dinosaurs and humans walked the earth at the same time. And she said yes, she’d seen images somewhere of dinosaur fossils with human footprints in them.”

Munger also asked Palin if she truly believed in the End of Days, the doomsday scenario when the Messiah will return. “She looked in my eyes and said, ‘Yes, I think I will see Jesus come back to earth in my lifetime.’”
