Spurred by Mr. Huckabee's modest proposal, here are some things -- other than the Constitution of the United States of America -- that may need to be changed so they're "in God's standards":
* The Speed of Light -- Scientists claim that electromagnetic radiation propagates in a vacuum at 186,282 miles/second.
By contrast, Genesis 1:3 states, "And God said, Let there be light: and there was light." In dry air with a temperature of 70 F, the speed of God's statement, or any sound, sound is merely 770 mph. Although the humidity variables due to the Spirit of God's movement "upon the face of the waters" could impact the calculation, the Speed of Light clearly must be adjusted down to approximately 770 mph "so it's in God's standards."
* The Geological Record -- Stratigraphic evidence has convinced scientists that the Earth is 4.5 to 4.6 billion years old. Furthermore, radiometric dating verified that the relative time scale determined by stratigraphers is absolutely correct, a result that could only have been obtained if both the relative time scale and radiometric dating methods were independently correct.
Of course, creationists like Mr. Huckabee know that our planet was actually created in just six 24-hour days only six to ten thousand years ago.
Therefore, the geological record of billions and billions of years of stratification and transformation of the Earths crust must be reduced to 120,000 months "so it's in God's standards."
* Linnaean Taxonomy -- Although it has been modified as our understanding of the relationships between living things has changed, biological scientists have relied on Carl Linnaeus' robust hierarchical system -- classifying living creatures in domains and kingdoms all the way down to genera and species -- for more than two centuries. Although it would appear to have passed the test of time, the Linnaean system of biological categorization is woefully flawed in light of "the word of the living God."
Under Linnaeus' system, whales are those Cetaceans which are not members of the families Delphinidae, Platanistoidae or Phocoenidae. This may seem perfectly harmless, but consider: the Linnaean system asserts that order Cetaceans is a member of the class Mammalia.
But Jonah 1:17 of "the word of the living God" tells us that the whale that swallowed and housed Jonah for 3 days was "a great fish" not a warm-blooded, vertebrate animal characterized by the presence of sweat glands -- including milk producing sweat glands to feed their live born offspring -- by hair, a neocortex region in the brain and a four-chambered heart.
So the Linnaean Taxonomy must be tossed to put our characterization of animal life in line with "the word of the living God."
* The Global Earth -- Although scientific experimentation and simple human observation have determined that our home planet is spherical, "the word of the living God" says otherwise.
Revelation 7:1 states, "And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree." Clearly corners are not an attribute of a round planet, and thus, the Earth cannot be a globe.
Therefore, the globes in homes and classrooms around the nation must be flattened to conform with "the word of the living God."
These may seem like extreme measures, but it will be much easier than trying to change
UPDATE -- In his backpedaling from 67 year-old Chuck Norris' comments about 71 year-old John McCain's age, Mr. Huckabee said the following: "It is a very stressful position... I'm not going to say he's too old. I think he's got a lot of inner strength, good genetic factors by his mom." (emphasis added)
So apparently, the science of genetics -- at least maternal genetics -- is "in God's standards."
