It appears that in Alabama, belief in evolution is now a disqualifying factor for candidates for public office. Alabama gubernatorial candidate Bradley Byrne is being attacked in the ad below for once saying that evolution “best explains the origin of life.”
Byrne is also being challenged for saying that the Bible is “only partially true.” If you recall, a majority of Republicans running for President last election stated that they did not believe in evolution. For a prior column, click here.
Byrne is notably running against the “ten commandments judge” Roy Moore.
For his part, Byrne quickly promised that he wants creationism and not evolution taught in Alabama schools: “As a Christian and as a public servant, I have never wavered honey baked ham in my belief that this world and everything in it is a masterpiece created by the hands of God,” he said. “As a member of the Alabama Board of Education, the record clearly shows that I fought to ensure the teaching of creationism in our school text books. Those who attack me have distorted, twisted and misrepresented my comments and are spewing utter lies to the people of this state.”
He further assured voters that he believes “every single word” of the Bible to be true.
At least in our politics, we certainly seem to be disproving Darwinistic theories of the survival of the fittest.
