John Glenn Says Evolution Should Be Taught in Schools; Affirms Belief in God

John Glenn, former astronaut and the first American to orbit the Earth, told The Associated Press in an interview last week that there is no conflict between evolution and a belief in God, and that evolution should be taught in schools.

"I don't see that I'm any less religious by the fact that I can appreciate the fact that science just records that we change with evolution and time, and that's a fact," Glenn, a Presbyterian, told AP. "It doesn't mean it's less wondrous and it doesn't mean that there can't be some power greater than any of us that has been behind and is behind whatever is going on."

Josh Rosenau, programs and policy director at the National Center for Science Education, told The Christian Post he is not surprised that Glenn would endorse the teaching of evolution in school.

"In general the importance of teaching evolution is a practical matter," declared Rosenau. "The 20th ...

Just because a guy is an astronaut doesn't mean he is smart. This reminds me of another astronaut, I think he was one of the first guys on the moon, who came back with an 'off the wall' interpretation of it all, went on to work with a group promoting something strange..anybody remember him?
Einstein may have been a brilliant physicist, but was he good at turning a double play when the score is tied, and one out is on the board? Was he good at being a father or husband?

...in fact every morning we should trip over these intermediate species.

Hi VPM, you made me think about a question that's always comes to mind when these topics come up...a question I never hear any of these people or the detractors ever bring up: if evolution were true, it would be a never ending process. No matter what sort of time frame they put on any species evolving, we should see evolution in progress every day of our lives. We should see fish growing a leg on the end of a line, we should see primates turning into human beings, and so on, but the process ended. Why hasn't man grown wings since it would be advantageous for us to m fly?
Then there is the circular way of dating fossils. They are dated by the layer of rock strata they're found in and that strata is dated by the fossils found therein. Hmmm. Something doesn't sound right. Evolution...one of Satan's greatest masterpieces.

Glenn is wrong nor does he understand the LORD or His word/counsel; if eviloution was true in any way as Darwin claimed God could not be, but of course scientifically eviloution is NOT true nor could it be proven scientifically, it is instead a belief system wrapped in scientific verbiage but containing no actual scientific fact.

There is change within a species over time,but we have never observed through our eyes or the fossil record a change from one species becoming a different one. We should have plenty of evidence if this was true. In fact every morning we should trip over these intermediate species. If it took 4 billion yrs then this would be true. But there is NO evidence of any of these species.

It is so obvious that evolutionary dogmatists will go to any length to make it appear as if there were a consensus on every aspect of their theory, since it is so "obviously" true in their eyes. I recently saw a children's book promoting materialistic natural history that stated as fact the following theory of the moon's formation: the earth was hit by an asteroid shortly after it creation, the asteroid exploded, poured its metallic contents into the earth's core, while the rocky fragments that were left floating n space came together to form the moon. This was stated as scientific fact, to impress children with what scientists know about the formation of the universe; but in actual fact there is no consensus even among scientist's regarding the moon's origin. This is a 'just so' story presented as fact-- typical smoke and mirrors indoctrination by evolutionary dogmatists. And they wonder why people are skeptical of their theory!

I remember when I was in high school (in a tiny, Kansas town with Christian Science teachers (20 ish yrs ago)) trying to reconcile the Bible with millions of years which were presented as fact.

I remember reconciling creation and old earth with the loooooong day theory and never gave it more thought. Yes, theistic evolution is more dangerous as it is like the frog in warm water heating up slowly allegory. I was an adult before I was under sound teaching that I saw the fallacy of my reasoning. But it certainly makes me more watchful as to what I teach my kids, so I am thankful for that! We cannot be apathetic in our culture and maintain a Biblical faith. Thanks for your comment!
Thanks for your thoughts sister. Most would be surprised at how many noted theologians support the OEC; such as Ankerberg. They actually claim they are using a literal interpretation of Genesis. IMO God said morning and evening day one, etc. for a reason. And of course OEC says that after billions of years, God then decided to step in and make mankind; clearly death before Adam.

Theistic evolution is even more evil than secular evolution because it adds God to this unholy endeavor. When someone says they believe in theistic evolution they take the catholic stand. John Paul II and Francis are both on record for believing theistic evolution. Doing it their way, removes original sin since death didn’t begin in the Garden, but existed for billions of years. The Gap theory does the same thing and Old earth Creationism is something championed by many who don’t wish to look foolish to the secular world. But, if someone is faithful to scripture and to our Lord, they will profess a literal 6 day creation and death entered into this world through Adam. The below is true.

•That God Alone created.
•That God created everything that is.
•That this creation was fiat - that is, it was spoken forth and created by God's Own word.
•That He created everything that is, out of absolutely nothing except His own infinite Being.

SC, I have always said that if satan can convince mankind that evolution is true, then he can convince them of literally anything. WE AGREE. What a silly belief system and all forms of it deny our triune God and His word.

Being the "religious" fellow he states that he is, Glenn would probably be interested in Comfort's evolution vs. God feature.I wonder how well he would fare in answering the question that Ray Comfort asks. My guess is that he would fail too.
Everyone should be exposed to evolution to see how lame a theory it proves to be.
What's really phenomenal is how long such an incredibly erroneous theory has survived. It definitely smashes the concept of "survival of the fittest"...as it,itself,has lasted and been embraced though it is the weakest concept... "survival of the weakest" theory,if you will.
Science and creation scream of the Glory of God and are quite ,unmistakably,compatible.
And,if one looks around,one sees monkeys...that are monkeys...and will stay monkeys.
And,we see men who,though they sometimes act like monkeys,are men...until that day,I guess,when if they feel like a monkey they may be allowed to be treated like one.
So much for the "evolution" of intelligence.

Ha, Ha, Ha !

Not Only Is JOHN GLENN Totally Mentally "Spaced-Out"; But, He's ALSO TOTALLY INSANE To Believe In The Fairy-Tale; Fantasy & BIG LIE Of "The Big-Bang Theory, Hypothesis &-Or GUESS Of 'Evolution' " !

Anyone Who Agrees With GLENN Is Not Only INSANE, ILLOGICAL, UNREASONABLE, IRRATIONAL & UNSCIENTIFIC;

BUT, SHOULD BE INSTITUTIONALIZED &-OR "PUT AWAY" IN A MENTAL HOSPITAL FOR OBSERVATION -AND- RE-EDUCATED ON THE ORGIN OF THE UNIVERSE & LIFE ITSELF...

"In The Beginning GOD CREATED THE HEAVEN AND THE EARTH.

And The Earth Was Without Form, And Void; And Darkness Was Upon The Face Of The Deep. And The Spirit Of GOD Moved Upon The Face Of The Waters.

And GOD Said, Let There Be Light: And There Was Light.

And GOD Saw The Light, That It Was Good: And GOD Divided The Light From The Darkness.

And GOD Called The Light Day, And The Darkness HE Called Night. And The Evening And The Morning Were The FIRST DAY (OF 24 HOURS).

And GOD Said, Let There Be A FIRMAMENT In The Midst Of The WATERS, And Let It Divide THE WATERS From THE WATERS.

And GOD Made THE FIRMAMENT, And Divided THE WATERS Which Were UNDER The FIRMAMENT From The WATERS Which Were ABOVE THE FIRMAMENT: And It Was SO..."--GENESIS 1:1-7...

The PCUSA sets another historical precedent in the Western apostasy, by endorsing 'gay marriage.' Is apostasy inevitable for every denomination? For every local church? Kevin Swanson takes a look at the PCA General Assembly's handling of the Creation/Evolution of Man issue, and identifies the most likely exits off the highway of orthodoxy. . . Feminism, Homosexuality, and. . . you guessed it . . . evolution.

If unbelievers put as much effort and thought into understanding the THEORY of evolution as they do sabotaging Creation, they would realize what a faulty theory evolution is.
Instead they support a theory they dont understand as an excuse not to believe in GOD.

Unfortunately, some Christians see the vast support evolution receives from the lost, and they are too timid or ignorant to confront the world in this lie, so they take the easy way out. They believe in both

Right, S. Taylor, and it's freightening how many "Christians" are buying into the lie, saying that there is no conflict between evolution and creation because evolution is the vehicle God used to create. What's that old saying...repeat something loud enough and often enough and people will eventually belive it.

Oh please...do some research, buddy. If anything, honest science proves, beyond any reasonable doubt, that evolutionary theory is a dud.
