There has been some discussion about what a politician should say when asked by a reporter, Do you believe in evolution? My response would be:
Of course! Everyone with an IQ above room temperature, who isn’t a science denier, knows that it is an established scientific fact, supported by all the evidence, not to mention computer simulations, that random genetic mutations aided by natural selection turned ancient microbes into Mozart in approximately three billion years (that’s about 10^17 seconds). If evolution can do that, it can do anything.
Scientists say it. I believe it. That settles it!
By the way Mr. reporter, you believe that too, don’t you? Surely you aren’t a science denier.
