RON PAUL DOESN’T BELIEVE IN EVOLUTION. Where do I get my refund please.

Ron Paul cannot possibly be serious. Boy, Imma terrible judge of character.

I have always had some doubts about Ron Paul. But, this clinches it.

What incredible choices the repubs have:

911 Guiliani

Illegal Lawn Guys Romney

Thompson who doesn’t really wanna be….

and Huckabee.

 

Well, Huckabee is the only viable option that could win a general election.

 

Ron Paul Doesn’t “Accept” Evolution

Since Brownback and Tancredo are out of the race, I guess Paul decided to keep Huckabee company amongst the presidential candidates who think the Flintstones was a documentary. Denying scientific evidence is an awfully peculiar thing for a doctor to do, but then again, Ron Paul is a paradox. He voted for the border fence with Mexico, yet claims to be a libertarian. He voted against the resolution to impeach Cheney, yet claims to be a strict constitutionalist. He’s against the occupation of Iraq, yet claims to be from Texas. Understanding Paul is like trying to nail jello to a tree, and yet that doesn’t seem to matter to the majority of his supporters who still don’t have a full picture of their savior.

Despite eyebrow-raising revelations that continue to surface, such as Paul not believing in the separation between church and state or the donations he accepts from white supremacist groups, nothing is stronger than the love a Paul fanboy has for his golden idol. Ask a left-leaning Paul supporter why they don’t just support a better candidate like Dennis Kucinich and they’ll put forth the anti-democratic group-think argument of electibility having precedence over platform. Irony anyone? Why not just support Hillary and get it over with?

It’s actually pretty shocking that Paul would use the “evolution is just a theory” argument to justify his nonacceptance of it. In science, a Theory is not merely an opinion, but a well-supported and testable explanation of how nature works. Doctor Paul must surely know the error in putting something like the geological theory of plate tectonics and my cousin’s theory that Alf is really an alien and not a muppet on equal footing.

Paul has shown how extremely misinformed he is on matters of science with his solution to environmental degradation already. Perhaps we should exercise a bit of intelligent design ourselves by elected a president with at least an elementary school understanding of what constitutes scientific fact this time around, and not someone who thinks “both sides” are equally credible.
