Does Ronny believe evolution is caused by sunspots?

BTW, evolution has been witnessed. Drug resistance microbes is one example. If you need more proof, google it.

Does he "believe" in evolution? Most likely not. He's our Dumb Senator.

Does that change the fact that evolution is an active force of change for the planet and it's inhabitants? No. It doesn't matter if you "believe" in evolution. It is not a religion. Religion is based on faith. The evidence for evolution is a science which is in a constant state of investigation and experimentation to determine the truth.

If you don't believe in evolution, can you still believe in drug-resistant bacteria?

Johnson, an adherent of the Wisconsin Evangelical Luthern Synod faith, doesn't believe in evolution. Here is the offical statement on creation from WELS:

Science says the earth is 4-5 billion years old. The Bible gives a time line of around 6,000. How do we respond to that discrepancy?

This question needs books not paragraphs as an answer. The short answer is that the earth was created with the appearance of age. On the first day everything looked older than it was.


Many more idiotic statement on that site.

Bit of a logical leap there Henry. It's completely possible that Johnson is just a hypocritical jackass who professes strong faith while not actually believing or following the teachings of the faith.

Come to think of it, giving other general tenants of christian religions, I'd say it's almost certain.

Creationists will say that they believe in micro-evolution but do not believe in macro-evolution. (Of course these are made up terms.) Usually they do so without clearly explaining the difference between the two so they can shift the goalposts when presented with the evidence.

Not to mention that they clearly believe that parents shouldn't have to teach their children anything, the schools should do it all.
