Thanks to the FreindlyAtheist blog for pointing our attention to a recent post by David Hume at Secular Right. Hume looks ahead to the 2012 presidential election (pre-maturely he admits) and sees a common theme among some top runners for the GOP nomination: a belief in creationism. Yes, Mike Huckabee, Sarah Palin and Tim Palwenty all freely admit to believing in creationism over evolution. So come 2012 could America elect a creationist-in-chief? Here’s hoping the Republican party can wiggle free from the hold of the Christian Right some time in the next four years, soon enough to come up with a candidate who, I don’t know, believes in science?
Also, FriendlyAtheist reminds us not to forget about Louisiana. Governor Bobby Jindal’s name has been mentioned on a GOP short list and he is also a creationist.
