Georgia Representative Jack Kingston (R) has drawn both praise and criticism for recently defending his belief in creation on Real Time with Bill Maher.
In last month's discussion on the HBO program, Kingston told the guest panel that he believes man was created by God, arguing that fossils would provide proof if man evolved from another creature. "If it happened over millions and millions of years, there should be lots of fossil evidence. But they haven't found it," Kingston noted.
But host Bill Maher argues that evidence does exist, and while he admits that no missing links have been found, he says it is only because the fossils have not yet been discovered....
Here is a strange phenomenon, most people who believe in evolution aren‚Äôt scientists and they like most of us have no real understanding of the science that goes into this theory. Now why would billions of people believe in something when they have absolutely no idea why they believe it? And yet, these non-scientists who believe what these scientists tell them have the audacity to belittle and ridicule those who don‚Äôt believe in evolution. Laughingly they even refer to themselves as logical and enlightened over and against those who disagree with them. What logic and enlightenment does it take to believe something that you have absolutely no idea is true or false except for what others tell you is true? I only wish these folks would simply sit down and ask themselves what motivates them to believe what they believe. Once they do that, perhaps they will throw themselves at the mercy of the Creator of the entire universe and all it contains and repent before it is too late.
