Sandy Rios of the American Family Association has no background in science whatsoever, but like most fundamentalist Christians that doesn’t stop her from declaring that virtually every biologist, geologist, geneticist, paleontologist, and anthropologist in the world is wrong about evolution.
“There is no scientific evidence” to substantiate evolution, she said, at least according to “the real experts.” So why has this stunning revelation that the foundational theory behind modern biology has been refuted not percolated through the scientific community? Well, Rios explained, that’s because evolution has become a sacred, religious tenant.
“Evolution has become the religion of the elite,” Rios said. “It’s a religion to the [level of] fanaticism of what they would say was the people at the Scopes monkey trial, the Christians waving their Bibles who were not really thinking through the facts, they were just outraged because it was against God’s law. The truth of the matter is that the evolutionists like George Will, waving their evolutionary theory, have become as rabid and unreasoned as what they accuse the Scopes monkey religionists of doing to Darwin during that time. It has become a religion. Science has disproven so much of evolution…. These guys are wrong, Scott Walker is right.”
And she defines a “real expert,” of course, as someone who rejects evolution. And isn’t it amusing hearing Christians declare that a belief they disagree with is a religion and is therefore wrong? Oh, that’s right — they think Christianity is not a religion. Like Humpty Dumpty in Alice in Wonderland, words mean whatever they declare them to mean at any given time.
