Three GOP Candidates Deny Evolution

Three GOP candidates deny evolution. The actual words used were "don't believe", but since evolution is scientifically proven (as proven as anything can be science), you deny it. You don't believe your daughter when she tells you that she didn't draw on the wall with crayons (to borrow from Douglas Adams), but you deny something that's scientifically proven.

Frankly, I'm surprised it's only three. I'm not surprised that only three actually do deny it, but that the rest aren't pandering to the idiots in the primaries who also deny evolution. Every single one of the front-runners has changed their positions on issues because of that, I'm shocked that evolution isn't one.

But then again, maybe it's getting to the point where saying that you deny evolution makes you look too stupid for even the GOP. I can only hope.
