Ron Paul doesn’t believe in Evolution: ROFL + So what? + BS

I posted this in response to a myspace bulletin (posted below this) the bulletin I'm responding too is in italics. I think the concept of Belief Systems is too important to be ignored in this issue.

It's about how the future has as much to do with the present as the past does. Giraffes can only have come from the future. There's no way evolution in the past would have let something that defenseless and impractical live for 15 minutes." Kilgore Trout (Kurt Vonnegut)

"Genesis takes place continually in an ocean of Nirvana."
Physicist and Futurist Michio Kaku

Oh man, we just can't catch a break can we? The only candidate with some common sense and a chance and he's a creationist.
Well so what, Bush was a retard puppet made president twice who probably didn't even win either election. Would voting matter now? It'll sure become interesting that's for sure. Well it's too early to despair, so let's all keep the 'faith' ;p I just gotta laugh at the situation, reality has become way too fucking crazy to still take it seriously lol. But seriously so what, what matters are his political views which have been pretty consistent and the man's a doctor. I really don't care what he thinks about the origin of life. With his view on reduced government I don't think there's much if anything to worry about his religious beliefs.

"The one and only anti-war Republican presidential candidate didn't raise his hand when asked who doesn't believe in evolution, but it turns out he may have wanted to. In this clip, Paul responds to a question about the incident by saying that it was an "inappropriate question," but that "I think it's a theory—theory of evolution—and I don't accept it."
It is a theory. A scientific theory, but still a theory.

"This is important to me and IS an appropriate question to ask, Mr. Paul. We don't need anyone else who is scientifically illetarate (lol) running this country. The stakes are too high."
Well the scientific illiterate in office now isn't running the country, the 'decider' does whatever his puppetmasters tell him too.

This just shows that atheists/materialists can be as fundamentalistic and dogmatic as any religious person. Ideologies are the new religions kids, hate to break the news.
Tell me, who are you gonna vote for otherwise? :p Who else even has a remote chance of beating the mainstream puppets who'll plunge the US into a police state?

"We can all see how other people's BS (belief system or bullshit :p) makes them blind and 'stupid' at times, but we find it very hard to notice how our own BS is doing the same to us. This is what anthropologists call 'acculturalization.' Following Gurdjieff, I prefer to call it hypnosis... Every politician knows how to induce hypnosis, and very damned few peple on the whole planet know how to de-hypnotize themselves. The world is not governed by facts or logic. It is governed by BS." Robert Anton Wilson

The theory of evolution isn't the end of the story. Atheists laugh at people who accept a theory of a few thousand years old and they still cling to one of nearly 150 years old. But it's science you say! Yet you forget It's old, purely materialistic and thus limited science.
I mean there has been some progress made since 1859. For instance just one example is Ken Wilber's Integral Institute's theory of Spiritual Evolution, which is just another theory. And an interpretation of social and psychological development that could also be considered a theory of (spiritual) evolution is Spiral Dynamics, based on the work of Clare W. Graves. Also, just another theory. Here's to Openmindedness! Happy holidays folks.


"Whenever people are certain they understand our peculiar situation here on this planet, it is because they have accepted a religious Faith or a secular Ideology (Ideologies are the modern form of Faiths) and just stopped thinking."
Robert Anton Wilson

1. Never believe totally in anybody else's BS.
2. Never believe totally in your own BS.
Robert Anton Wilson

"People have murdered each other, in massive wars and guerilla actions, for many centuries, and still murder each other in the present, over Ideologies and Religions which, stated as propositions, appear neither true nor false to modern logicians - meaningless propositions that look meaningful to the linguistically naive."
Robert Anton Wilson

"All models are wrong but some are useful."
George Box

"We do not see things as they are, we see things as we are."
The Talmud

"Only the madman is absolutely sure."
Robert Anton Wilson

"A great many people think they are thinking when they are merely rearranging their prejudices."
William James

"'Seeing' is not a function of the eyes alone, but of the eyes-and-brain working together. A popular proverb says, 'Seeing is believing,' but as the philosopher Santayana once pointed out, humans are much better at believing than at seeing."
Robert Anton Wilson

"Every man takes the limits of his own field of vision for the limits of the world."
Arthur Schopenhauer

"Intelligence is the capacity to receive, decode and transmit information efficiently. Stupidity is blockage of this process at any point. Bigotry, ideologies etc. block the ability to receive; robotic reality-tunnels block the ability to decode or integrate new signals; censorship blocks transmission."
Robert Anton Wilson

symbols get mistaken for reality - symbols can be manipulated
hence 'reality' can be manipulated - messy situation develops

This is important to me and IS an appropriate question to ask, Mr. Paul. We don't need anyone else who is scientifically illetarate running this country. The stakes are too high.

The one and only anti-war Republican presidential candidate didn't raise his hand when asked who doesn't believe in evolution, but it turns out he may have wanted to. In this clip, Paul responds to a question about the incident by saying that it was an "inappropriate question," but that "I think it's a theory—theory of evolution—and I don't accept it."

Paul hasn't been hiding his religious convictions. He wrote back in 2003 that the "secular Left" has been waging a war on religion and Christmas and that "[t]he notion of a rigid separation between church and state has no basis in either the text of the Constitution or the writings of our Founding Fathers."







I better see some apologies from all of the atheists who said they would stop supporting his campaign if he were to come out and say this.
