    As with every election and especially a presidential election, all candidates are asked their thoughts on evolution. I believe the liberal MSM passed on asking that question to Obama (I wonder why?) but anyway, Rick Perry was asked the question and he gave a lengthy answer. How do you think his response was?


    Rick Perry Answers the Dreaded "Evolution" Question - Evolution News & Views
    His Answer:

    "There are clear indications from our people who have amazing intellectual capability that this didn't happen by accident and a creator put this in place. Now, what was his time frame and how did he create the earth that we know? I'm not going to tell you that I've got the answers to that. I believe that we were created by this all-powerful supreme being and how we got to today versus what we look like thousands of years ago, I think there's enough holes in the theory of evolution to, you know, say there are some holes in that theory."



    Will his evangelical base accept this answer as good enough?

    You have to understand that to liberal reporters, questioning the theory of evolution is tantamount to questioning that the world is round.

    They also want to imply that by expressing doubts about evolution, your educational policy will then be similar to the narrow-minded authorities who fined John Scopes for teaching evolution (thus, making you anti-science).

    He probably doesn't agree with gravity either. It's fun to watch you people walk a fence on the subject of evolution in the face of scientific evidence.

    :rofl:

    Will republicans in general consider his answer bad enough?

    No, questioning evolution is fine; it’s the attempt to replace it with religious dogma that’s problematic.

    Considering that only a measly 6% of scientists are Republican, I suspect those that disagree with the Theory of Evolution are ALL Republican scientists. Hilarious.

    Republican Scientist. It's what we call an "Oxymoron".

    These liberals that proclaim intellectual superiority by insulting and denigrating Christians for maintaining their faith are simply demonstrating their utterly transparent hatred and bigotry.

    They reserve these types of insults almost exclusively to Christianity. Leftists are so shallow and intellectually lacking that they can't comprehend how the belief in God and evolution are not mutually exclusive, nor do they acknowledge that many in the scientific community are Christians. No, they get their world view from television that continually reinforces their simplistic ideas that all scientists are atheists.

    What the hell is your point? 9 out of 10 Americans believe in God too. More Than 9 in 10 Americans Continue to Believe in God

    All you have is hatred and contempt. If it weren't directed at Christians, who happen to make up around 78% of Americans This Christmas, 78% of Americans Identify as Christian, you would be universally called a bigot. But since it is you are only called a bigot by those intellectually honest enough to say so.

    I don't why evolution disturbs people on the right, but it does. No wonder America ranks up their with Turkey in denying evolution.
