Creationist chronicles

Posted on Sat, Apr 5, 2008 at 11:21 AM

Mike Huckabee, who famously held up his hand in an Iowa debate in May 2007 when the Republican presidential candidates were asked who did not believe in evolution, has cut a promotional video for the Ben Stein film “Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed.” The film, which will be released this month, posits that scientists who believe in intelligent design are being censored and punished in a Darwinist assault on religious faith. Huckabee says scientists and teachers who mention the possibility that God had a hand in creation are being chased from college and public school classrooms. Maybe someplace but not in Huckabee’s Arkansas, where it is evolution that is largely banned from school curricula. Go see the film, the governor urges, and “send our liberal friends a message.”
