Romney on evolution   posted by Razib @ 5/11/2007 09:49:00 AM

Mitt Romney elaborates his position on evolution. Here's the thing: some are wondering if this will hurt Romney with evangelicals. But imagine the opposite, what if he pandered to Creationism? Well, perhaps someone would have asked how he could believe in the evolution of humans into gods while rejecting evolution as a general process! I know, low blow, but an elite scorned might go there. After all, Jacob Weisberg has elucidated one strain of elite thinking which declares honestly that believing in stuff made up thousands of years ago is less egregious than believing in stuff made up hundreds of years ago.

P.S. you can watch all four hours of PBS' The Mormons online.
