In Going Rogue: An American Life Sarah Palin make sthe claim that she does not believe in evolution. She has not been so straightfoward in the past on this topic, according to think progress.

…she talks about creationism, saying she “didn’t believe in the theory that human beings — thinking, loving beings — originated from fish that sprouted legs and crawled out of the sea” or from “monkeys who eventually swung down from the trees.”

This is a flip flop from what she said during the campaign. Sara Palin is a flip flopper. Spread it around.

    I think some history is missing here. I had known that she was a creationist soon after she entered the campaign. Her argument is the common argument from incredulity, which is not surprising. I also don’t believe in evolution. I have studied evolution and I am convinced of it.

    She’s been a creationist all along. She has waffled on whether or not evolution should be taught in schools.

    Personally, I find nothing astonishing in any of this.

    Oh great, like an idiot I actually clicked on that first link, and now Amazon thinks I might be interested in some Glen Beck too. DAMN YOU LADEN!!!

    I don’t believe in Sarah Palin. She is a mask that Michele Bachmann wears.

    The astonishing thing is that there are still people in the U.S. who think she’s got anything relevant to say.

    Maybe we all came from Pollyanna Seeds sprinkled across this empty Earth by Glenda the “Good Girl” of the West and Evolution is merely something some old man in England invented to make everyone think he was important.

    Yea, for Sarah!

    If she wasn’t already happily married I would rush over to her Winnebago, parked in that lot over there between the Target Store and the blue-light special at K-Mart, crawl to her door, and propose my honest, undying, heartfelt and most sincere devotion to her most perfect of all possible perfect….Perfectitudinalities of perfect renditional feminine perfection.

    Drool, drool, droll. Oh, Sarah.

    Yours truly,
    Me

    I cannot beleive the pure dumbness of you people who have been brainwashed into beleiving in evolution and abiogenesis, which both have not one shreed of scientific proof. True science observes that life comes only from life. Mutations deplete genetic information. Darwin was scientifically deficient. He did not understand higher mathematics and physics and neither do any of you lainbrain evolutionists. No single cell living entity appeared by random conglomeration of molecules complete with proteins, cyplasm, respiration system, digestive system, reproduction system all based on the parameters of the earth. This cannot happen trillions of times over in a few hundred million years. In a google of years a single cell could not come toghether by chance. All honest scientists know this. The ape-like bones found are extinct ape like creatures. There is no known method whereby one species can evolve into another. No human has ever seen this. No creature on earth today is an intermediate. No missing links are found, yet you dingbat evolutionists, ther should be quadrillions of missinf links in the fossil record. You are dumber than the dumbest jackass. You beleive you came from chemicals from eaely earth rocks, that turned into life complete which reproduction system. Why did evolution need or know about reproduction. You are a pitiful joke, lacking in mathematical logic and the scientific method.

    joseph, what kind of scientist are you?

    The human brain is the most complex physical entity in the known universe. Are you telling me it was put toghether by random interaction of molecules and atoms all in a few hundred million years by no method. As the blind watchmaker author admits from femto second to femto second there is never a driving force or intelligence in the theory of evolution. I am a scientist of order x-95ooZ from the planet Quasti, from the galaxy of the green mist fyi.

    No. I am not telling you that. Why do you tink I’m telling you that?

    I’ve never been to that galaxy. Is it nice?

    >>There is no known method whereby one species can evolve into another.<<

    Hmm, I guess all that stuff about hybridization and polyploidy in plants is not a “known method” even though it allowed scientists to actually recreate the evolution of wheat species.
    Don’t you love it when people who don’t know anything dump rants like that on your blog? (Note: rhetorical questions require no answer.)

    Hybridization and polyploidy do not prove macro evolution at all mr genius. You know that. And no scientist has recreated the evolution of wheat. Are you dreaming. You know deep inside that it is impossible for a single cell to spring forth with all the systems (many, many) of life ,all coming together at once to create life. Also there is no engine or method for this to occur. The created thing instantly needs a food source and has to be designed according to the parameters on this earth and the scientific constants in nature and matter. The quadrillions of missing links are still missimg. the human brain cannot be created from some engine of lesser intelligence. If you choose to believe that the human brain evolved by random interaction of atoms with no driving intelligence femto second to femto second; came from no intelligence whatsoever you have been severely duped which is very painful to admit because we all have some arrogance. I have to go now , returning to planet Quasti in the galaxy of the green mist. word is bond.
