Scientists Panic Over Huckabee's Evolution Doubt

A day after ordained Baptist minister Mike Huckabee finished first in the opening round to choose a Republican candidate for the White House, scientists warned Americans against electing a leader who doubts evolution.

"The logic that convinces us that evolution is a fact is the same logic we use to say smoking is hazardous to your health or we have serious energy policy issues because of global warming," University of Michigan professor Gilbert Omenn told reporters at the launch of a book on evolution by the National Academy of Sciences (NAS).

"I would worry that a president who didn't believe in the evolution arguments wouldn't believe in those other arguments either. This is a way of leading our country to ruin," added Omenn, who was part of a panel of experts at the launch of "Science, Evolution and Creationism."

Former Arkansas governor Huckabee said in a debate in May that he did not believe in evolution. - AFP, wtf.com
Scientists should all just leave.


  1. You should be sterilized. Science should start a mass execution of holy rollers.

  2. Evolution is proven, so religion should die, along with you.

  3. A theory, by definition, has reasonable evidence to back it, it doesn't mean that it is just an idea, it means that it has a lot of viable proof. You are a complete moron Glen. Go back to 1174.

  4. There's not a lot of proof behind religion, if at all, but I'll stick behind the scientists.

    Btw, since science should die, do you not believe in medicine and all that?

    And, I think you'll love Brave New World next year when you read it. Seems to cover this too.

  5. Glen should go back to 1174, he can be Baldwin the Leper.
