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.”

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.
