Pat Buchanan vs. Evolution
As we’ve noted previously, in addition to all his other wonderful attributes, “the great Patrick J. Buchanan” (Sean Hannity’s introduction for him) is a creationist.
And he has one of those “creationism checklist” articles now running at all the conservative websites (TownHall, WorldNetDaily, HumanEvents), in which he blames Charles Darwin for the majority of the world’s ills (evilution caused both Marx and Hitler!): Making a Monkey Out of Darwin.
Get it? Monkey … Darwin? Haw!
Along the way, we get the standard checklist of creationist tropes: Darwin as liar/thief/atheist, Hitler, Marx, eugenics, Nebraska Man, Piltdown Man, the fossil record, the origin of life, etc., concluding with the ever-popular equation of evolutionary science with religion:
Darwinism is not science. It is faith. Always was.
It’s interesting that paleo-knuckleheads like Buchanan think the most devastating rebuttal of all to the theory of evolution is that it’s … just like religion.
