Sarah Palin On Evolution: In Her Own Words

More

Is Sarah Palin a creationist? An adherent to the theory of intelligent design? A conventional Christian? A Deist? Here is Palin, in her own words, writing on page 217 of her book.  My conclusion is that she's a creationist but doesn't want to be called a creationist because the word connotes, as she says, "wild-eyed fundamentalists burying evidence for any kind of evolution under an avalanche of Bible verses."
