Party of Creationism

Posted by Brian on June 12, 2007

Scary stuff:

The majority of Republicans in the United States do not believe the theory of evolution is true and do not believe that humans evolved over millions of years from less advanced forms of life. This suggests that when three Republican presidential candidates at a May debate stated they did not believe in evolution, they were generally in sync with the bulk of the rank-and-file Republicans whose nomination they are seeking to obtain.

I’d feel a lot better if the Republican Party was some small-time splinter party based in the south with members running for positions like senior dog catcher and local comptroller. Instead, one of their own sits in the White House and were forced to watch the next generation of GOP presidential hopefuls fall all over themselves pandering to the most cookoo-dookiest, Bible-thumping fringe elements of their party.

People can believe what they want, but anyone who doesn’t accept evolution is totally out of touch with modern scienctific theory and unfit to be president. How can I trust a president dealing with matters of science if he or she doesn’t accept one of science’s most fundamental theories?
