Rush Limbaugh, Creationist

Cross species evolution, I don’t think anybody’s ever proven that. … but I’m more interested in some other missing link. And that is the missing link between our failing economy and prosperity.

If I may be so bold as to attempt to analyze these words and the mind of Rush - I don’t take these words to be a strong conviction towards creationism. I do, however, believe that he will never come out and just say I’m a creationist even if he were. For that matter, I don’t think he’d ever come out and just say, I’m an evolutionist, even if he were. I think he’s too “listener motivated” and has a strong following of people who are creationists so I would say that he’s decided, regardless of how he really feels about it, to take a creationist leaning. I realize he says, “this is all BS”, but when he says “I don’t think anybody’s ever proven that” he is actually leaving himself open for being convinced of that proof and the way that he says it all seems that he really does just want to get to his economic point. That’s just how I read it (I didn’t actually listen to his words).
