[In an article, headlined "Science Friction," that deals with politicians' views on issues of stem cell research and evolution:]
[Mike] Jenkins falls back on the argument that because evolution is a theory, it has yet to be proved. He believes that any class that includes evolution should also include creationism.
Jenkins says that depending on how you count years, the Earth could simultaneously be 10,000 years old and 4.8 billion years old.
"I think you can combine the two," Jenkins says. "Being extreme in either way is bad. I think you have to look at it and say, this is possible. It could be 10,000 years, or it could be 10 billion years. Don't be absolute and finite. You have to look at this with a scientific mind."
