Sports News Without Access, Favor, Or Discretion

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.
