Even though he’s already dropped out of the election (thank the FSM), this week’s ignunt fool of the week…
You can also find the video here.
I have to hand it to him, I’ve seen far more ignunt things said about evolution. Huckabee’s not the first one to confuse evolution with abiogenesis. It’s easier for them to attack the origin of life instead of evolution. That would be because evolution is a fact, and abiogenesis is a theory.
As for him saying that scientists have to resort to aliens (I assume he means panspermia) to explain the origin of life, I can think of at least two books and one video in which Richard Dawkins says that he does not believe in panspermia off the top of my head (the books being River Out of Eden and The Ancestor’s Tale, and the video being one of his Royal Institution lectures in case you’re interested). Inconveniently, he mentioned panspermia as a possible way in which Intelligent Design would be correct, and the Expelled folks went ahead and made some (il)logical inferences to try to make Richard Dawkins look like an ignunt fool.
I think that it ought to be worth noting that the only way they can teach ID in schools without it violating the separation between church and state (see first amendment) would be to say that the intelligent designer was an alien.
Thankfully, this ignunt fool isn’t going to be our next president… Oh, I do not doubt that we may end up with another ignunt fool, but the evolution deniers are pretty much out.
