Today's must-watch video: The True Republican PAC is running an advertisement in Alabama's GOP gubernatorial race attacking Bradley Byrne (R) because he supports the teaching of evolution in schools.


Political Ad in Alabama Mocks Evolution

And what gets me Burne backed down, saying that he has never doubted that the world was created by God.

What a trip!

Its just that with the oil spill, unemployment, and all of the other problems facing Alabama, I thought it'd make sense to focus on something, other than Evolution.

Maybe those in Huntsville can talk some sense into the others?

In GA, during the drought several years ago, our governor thought we should pray for rain. Took a while--this past winter's rain/snow filled the reservoirs.

'God created the earth in seven days and nights'--and who are WE to know how long a day and night might be to God?

There was a flutter of controversy over evolution/creationsism in a conservative part of a county in GA. Didn't amount to much.

I can understand praying for rain, as futile as I think it is. But bashing people for teaching evolution? A valid, widely accepted scientific Theory, makes no sense.

Whats next, the Theory of relativity is going to be excluded from grade school science?
