Sarah Palin and Evolution


The media is gonna hate this one. In her new book, Going Rogue, Sarah Palin talks about evolution and her conclusion? She's not buying it. It seems as if she discounts Macroevolution but has no problem with Microevolution. Hey folks, Palin joins the millions of Evangelical Christians who believe exactly the same thing.

You know it's funny. People who believe in Evolution think Evangelicals like Palin are wacky. Yet who's the one that believes I’m related to Nemo? Nemo is real right or was Disney lying to me?

Actually, if truth be told, I look more like I'm related to Abe Vigoda from the 1970's sitcom "Fish"

The story on Palin is below right after you take in this scintillating picture of sex symbol Abe Vigoda:

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, Sen. John McCain's (R-AZ) vice presidential running mate, signals in her new book Going Rogue that she doesn't believe in evolution, panning it as theory that human beings "originated from fish that sprouted legs and crawled out of the sea."

According to a review published Sunday in The New York Times, Palin knocks evolution in her new book.

Elsewhere in this volume, 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.” In everything that happens to her, from meeting Todd to her selection by Mr. McCain for the Republican ticket, she sees the hand of God: “My life is in His hands. I encourage readers to do what I did many years ago, invite Him in to take over.”

(More)

MSNBC notes that Palin also discusses a conversation she had with McCain's campaign advisor, Steve Schmidt, in her book.

"But your dad's a science teacher," Schmidt objected. "Yes." "Then you know that science proves evolution," added Schmidt. "Parts of evolution," I said. "But I believe that God created us and also that He can create an evolutionary process that allows species to change and adapt." Schmidt winced and raised his eyebrows. In the dim light, his sunglasses shifted atop his hear. I had just dared to mention the C-word: creationism. But I felt I was on solid factual ground.

Sarah Palin is in pretty good company. There are over 700 scientists with at least a Ph.D in their field of science that have dissented from Darwinism and the list is growing by about 3 or 4 per week.

Considered the peer pressure these scientists are under, and everything they have to lose, those are astounding numbers.

Evolution is a philosophical worldview and a fairy tale for grownups that are scientifically challenged.

When I was in college and the Biology teacher explained the theory of evolution, I couldn't believe that she believed what she was saying. I couldn't believe a thinking human being could believe such nonsense. I was astounded at the foolishness of the theory that she said was considered fact. I'm glad God gave me a brain to think and critically discern with. I felt sad for the people who actually believed the explanation she conveyed to the class. I hope more scientists will stand up and speak out on what they have learned over the years in regard to the erroneous beliefs about the creation of mankind and our world that have been passed down by atheists, scientists and educators over the years to our children who have now grown up to believe the lies found in evolutionary theories.

Wake up people.
Do yourselves a favor, and read "Your Inner Fish." In addition to explaining how evolution occurred and brought us to the present status we are, it proves its existence.

The world had fossils of fish from a certain age, and had fossils of land-dwelling amphibians of slightly more recent age. Paleontologists/biologists wanting to find transitional creatures (that they only assumed existed) decided to explore exposed rocks/earth of years in between the two fossil groups. They needed to travel to the near top of the world in northern Canada inside arctic circle and hope to find evidence of these transitional creatures.

After summers of exploring a barren region they found fossils of transitional creatures (Tiktallic) in rocks of the age between fish and amphibian fossils. Evolution proven.

I love God. God created evolution. Don't be like the 16th century church. Science is good and helps us understand God's complex world. Wake up.
