← What I Think About Evolution

The heart of the issue is that we cannot drive a wedge between faith and reason. I believe wholeheartedly that there cannot be any contradiction between the two. The scientific method, based on reason, seeks to discover truths about the nature of the created order and how it operates, whereas faith deals with spiritual truths. The truths of science and faith are complementary: they deal with very different questions, but they do not contradict each other because the spiritual order and the material order were created by the same God.(empasis added)

There MUST be a god, there MUST be a god, there MUST be a god... (repeat ad nauseum until you believe it).

Oh, dear Senator Brownback. Seeking to get votes from both sides of the campaign trail you have really shot yourself in the foot (what's left of it at least). I wonder, Senator, how you know that the material order and the spiritual order were 'created' by a god? Theologians and atheists alike have been searching for the evidence. Good thing it's found in politics.
As science continues to explore the details of man's origin, faith can do its part as well.

Sure, just don't expect us to call it science or based on fact.
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.

Which basically means you're right, as long as you owe it all to religion and God. Thanks, Senator. You lost my vote. Oh, wait, that would imply you had it to begin with.

On behalf of most Americans, I would like to apologize on behalf of Senator Brownback for being such a moron. His statement is so full of presuppositions. Yes, he's from THE Kansas, the one and the same.
