Ron Paul and the "evolution is a theory" albatrossSubmitted by Minarchist on Sat, 04/30/2011 - 03:57
As Ron Paul is taken more seriously, his position on evolution is going to become an impediment to making progress among the educated masses:
Evolution is scientific fact. Anyone who has spent a serious 15 minutes reading about it on Wikipedia knows this.
Ron Paul obviously has obviously not spent 15 minutes reading that yet.
This is a political impediment because it can appear that he is willing to put belief ahead of scientific fact, or he's not interested in getting the facts straight before choosing a position. Either way, these are traits that many people, particularly the educated, will find to be deal-breakers in terms of selecting someone to be president. I mean, this is 2011. Evolution is just a theory? Give me a break.
And please don't waste time and space by defending Creationism or ID without reading the Wikipedia article.
