The evidence suggests that American presidential candidates might not demonstrate the same characteristics. Look how far they had advanced last century, and then consider how they have gone back to the beliefs of the previous century.
|Woodrow Wilson - believer in evolution|
During his successful campaign for the presidency in 1912, Woodrow Wilson, Ph.D., the former president of Princeton University, was asked whether he believed in evolution.
He replied, that "of course like every other man of intelligence and education I do believe in organic evolution. It surprises me that at this late date such questions should be raised."
Theodore Roosevelt, his predecessor in the White House, wrote in "My Life as a Naturalist" about his childhood reading: "Thank Heaven, I sat at the feet of Darwin and Huxley."
What do the current candidates say on the subject. I wonder whether a single one of them would dare to say such 'outrageous' things.
