The one certainty about Republican political leaders from the great state of Texas is one is guaranteed their minds have never left the 19th century. Governor Rick Perry is an expert on science. According to him, all this stuff about evolution is “a theory that is out of there” and it has “some gaps in it.” It appears that governors of Texas have a hot line to God and Perry reported back on his latest conversation with the Big Guy up there in the sky.
“God is how we got here. God may have done it in a blink of the eye or he may have done it over a long period of time. I don’t know. But, I know how we got started.” So, which is it, “I don’t know” or “I know how we got started?”
I trust the people of the United States of America do not wish this land to become the laughing stock of the world. Imagine a president of this nation in the year 2012 who does not believe in the theory of evolution?
