GOP Debate – Evolution Question
When asked to raise their hands if they don’t believe in evolution, Sen. Sam Brownback, Gov. Mike Huckabee and Rep. Tom Tancredo all said they do not.
3 Republican Presidential candidates openly admit they do not believe in evolution. And the mass media don’t even bother to take note of it?
ETA: They are already backing away from their denial of evolution, per The Washington Post here:
Tancredo later issued a statement saying that “evolution explains changes in life. Creationism explains its origin.” Brownback later told The Washington Post that “it’s obvious from observation there’s a microevolution within species, but I do think there’s a role for the divine in the incredible nature of the mind and the complexity of the cell.”
Huckabee told The Post: “I believe that there is a God and that he put the creative process in motion. I don’t know how he did it. He may have used some sort of evolutionary process. I tend to believe that he did it as Scripture says, but I know that a lot of people believe differently, and of course I respect their beliefs.”
