The folks over at the blog This View of Life put together an interesting chart, clearing things up based on which prominent politician has the balls to say whether or not he/she believes in evolution.
Mike Huckabee, another Republican presidential hopeful, has more backbone than Walker on the subject of evolution. He was bold enough to say during the 2008 presidential campaign that evolution is just a theory that should be taught alongside creationism in schools. Then he added: “None of us are running in order to be an eighth grade science teacher. We’re running to be president.”
Do any politicians have enough backbone to say that they accept Darwin’s theory of evolution? All UK politicians do, according to the reporter who captured Walker. Why not, since Darwin is so politically correct over there that he’s on their ten pound notes? Among American presidential hopefuls on both sides of the aisle, Hillary Clinton arguably had the most backbone when she said “I believe in evolution, and I am shocked at some of the things that people in public life have been saying.”
