Ron Paul Rejects Evolution Too

Here’s a video of Ron Paul being asked about evolution at a townhall meeting. There are two things that are interesting about it. First, he uses the old “it’s a theory” line as if that casts some doubt on evolution. This is based on the false notion that a theory is a stepping stone to becoming something else once it’s well supported.

Second, how he turns totally spineless at the end and invokes the “we don’t have absolute truth on this yet” notion. Absolutely irrelevant. Does evolution explain the evidence well or not? Of course it does. That’s really all that matters.
