Christine O’Donnell: Evolution Is A Myth, If It Weren’t Monkeys Would Still Be Evolving
Another Politically Incorrect appearance from Christine O’Donnell circa 1998:
Republican Senate nominee Christine O’Donnell challenged comedian Bill Maher on evolution more than a decade ago, wondering aloud about why monkeys haven’t evolved into humans.
Maher showed the brief segment from his 1990s era show “Politically Incorrect” tonight on his HBO show “Real Time.” In the Oct. 15, 1998 clip which you can watch below, O’Donnell argued with Maher and his guests.
“Evolution is a myth,” O’Donnell said as the others piped up incredulously. She repeated herself, then added
Well then why aren’t monkeys still evolving into humans?
Yes, this is from twelve years ago. And, yes, it’s not exactly a burning issue in the election or in the United States Senate. Nonetheless, the question remains — does someone who spouts pseudo-science like this belong in the United States Senate ? Ultimately, that’s up to the voters of Delaware to decide, but if it were my choice I simply cannot justify supporting this woman for any political office (and, no, that doesn’t mean I’m endorsing her opponent).
