There's an interview with Blake Griffin in the latest issue of Rolling Stone that contains one particularly alarming bit of information. It appears that Blake Griffin is a hardcore, Jesus-rode-a-dinosaur-type creationist.

At one point, the interviewer brings up the fact that Griffin was home-schooled as a child, and then (jokingly, I'm assuming) asks Griffin if he is Team Creationism or Team Evolution. Griffin replies:

I was raised in a Christian household and went to a Christian high school, so I believe in creationism, for sure.

The interviewer asks Griffin if he really thinks the Earth is only 6,000 years old, to which Griffin replies, rather hilariously:

I don't want to do the math, but somewhere around there.

Now, Griffin is known to be a very witty guy who possesses a dry sense of humor, so it's entirely possible that he was just joking. We really, really hope he was joking.
