Well isn’t this just what we need. Another Religious Wing Nut whose corporate sponsors having him out there pushing the same old line of “Man made global warming is not real.”
Perry Wednesday was asked about a passage in his book “Fed Up!” in which he wrote that “doctored data” was behind the science on global warming and accused former U.S. Vice President Al Gore, who won a Nobel Peace Prize for his call to action on climate change, of being a “false prophet of a secular carbon cult.” (Anyone of a true science background knows Perry’s statement is bull crap and not backed up by any facts.)
Rick Perry, a Republican Presidential Candidate, on Thursday said the theory of evolution has “some gaps in it.” (Well I can say the only gaps he could be referring to are the gaps between his ears.)
Perry went on to say, “In Texas we teach both Creationism and Evolution in our public schools — because I figure you’re smart enough to figure out which one is right.” (Ah, the one that can be exposed as nothing more than fairy tale stories borrowed from
many religions that came before his or the one based on science facts?)
Now Perry is known for his deeply Christian views, and has been described to being, “more explicitly religious than many people who have run for president or have been president.” (Yea that’s what I’m talking about, an Über Religious Fairy Tale Believing Christian to lead this country!)
What started all of this latest goofy rant you ask? Well a little boy initially asked Perry how old he thought the earth was.
“You know what, I don’t have any idea – I know it’s pretty old, so it goes back a long, long ways,” the presidential candidate responded. “I’m not sure anybody actually knows completely and absolutely how old the earth is.”
As a response to Rick Perry’s comments, a fellow GOP presidential contender, “Jon Huntsman” responded to Perry’s comments on Thursday: “To be clear. I believe in evolution and trust scientists on global warming. Call me crazy.”
All I can say is that when it comes time for me to vote in the Republican Primaries here in Maryland, I’m going to vote for the Crazy one! I think it’s a safer bet.
