Senator Sam Brownback of Kansas; Mike Huckabee, the former governor of Arkansas; and Representative Tom Tancredo of Colorado all reject the scientific fact of evolution in favor of religious fundamentalism. A later AP story quoted Huckabee saying, "'I'm not sure what in the world that has to do with being president of the United States.''
That whether evolution is a fact could be the next president in 2007 is indeed scary. Even worse is that people like this currently occupy key positions of power in the US. George Bush says “the jury is still out” on evolution.
This is the definition of insanity
Who needs proof of WMD to justify invading another country, when you can create the "truth" as you go along?
Who cares if the people hired to run the country are competent, as long as they claim to be on their resume.
Why does science matter, even if Global Warming ends the world, its must be God's plan, were all going to heaven anyway, right?
