“You ever noticed how people who believe in Creationism look really unevolved?” Bill Hicks.
This year every single Republican running for Senate has come out saying they don’t believe in evolution, I haven’t gotten any media reports on how many believe in gravity.
It is not biased to say that a candidate not believing in evolution or gravity is a deal breaker for me. These two theories are simple and observable, so if a candidate doesn’t believe in them you have to assume they are going to ignore everything else that is simple and observable that doesn’t conform to what they would like the universe to be like.
The Republican’s running for Senate can complain about the liberal bias of reality and refuse to go on any news shows where the reporter will ask questions, and not just let them talk about their own little fantasy world all they like. But if they get elected they will have to actually make policies that affect the people who live in the real world and not their little fantasyland.
This is 2010 and the world has real problems that need to be addressed, so the Republicans this year have decided the best way to deal with these problems is to put their fingers in their ears and yell, “La-la-la-la I can’t hear you.”
So when you vote this year remember this little fun fact, Evolution is a more reviewed and confirmed theory than relativity, the theory that lets us understand gravity. Would you vote for someone who came out and said they don’t believe in gravity?
