Sen. Sam Brownback (R-KS), seen on the above making a presentation to the Senate, recently published an op-ed in the NY Times in which he explains exactly why he does not believe in evolution. No scientific arguments are included, even though it is really a scientific question. Instead, Brownback talks about how great faith is and how reason cannot contradict faith, concluding that "Man was not an accident and reflects an image and likeness unique in the created order. Those aspects of evolutionary theory compatible with this truth are a welcome addition to human knowledge. Aspects of these theories that undermine this truth, however, should be firmly rejected as an atheistic theology posing as science." My reaction can be found here.
