"We are evolving every year, every decade. That's a fact, whether it is to the intensity of the sun, whether it is to, as a chiropractor, walking on cement versus anything else, whether it is running shoes or high heels, of course we are evolving to our environment. But that's not relevant and that is why I refused to answer the question. The interview was about our science and tech strategy, which is strong."
So, what can we conclude from the above? First, we can conclude that Jane Taber is an imbecile -- far and away not the sharpest knife in the drawer -- for reasons that will become obvious shortly. And we can conclude that Gary Goodyear most emphatically doesnot "believe" in evolution in any meaningful way, which I will now explain.
Note how carefully Goodyear provided his own definition of "evolution" -- that, as humans, we are "evolving" to adapt to our environment. Sounds impressive, doesn't it? Until you remember that the first symptom of being a creationist is to always carefully distinguish between "micro" evolution and "macro" evolution. "Sure," say the creationists, "we're evolving, but only within our species. That's not the same as actually creating new species. That's where we draw the line." And that's where Goodyear drew that line -- right under Taber's nose, and she was too dense to realize she was being conned.
Taber's mistake was in not having a clue as to how to ask the question. It's worthless to ask a creationist publicly if they "believe" in evolution, because you're almost certain to get the vague, nebulous weaselitude you got from Goodyear, who can state that he "believes" in evolution while quietly redefining the word to basic worthlessness.
Instead of saying yes, Harper gave the following response:
"Well, I said Canada is a great country. You know, all of us who get involved in public life spend a lot of time away from our families to go across the country, probably get in many ways the most
rewarding experience you could have, you know. It's not tourist travel, you don't see all the hot spots and all the great sights but you get a real sense -- the kind old and the of traveling I've done, especially the last seven or eight months, you get a real sense of Canadians, where they live, who they are and what their challenges are. And I think the country has unlimited potential.
That's why I think it would be so exciting to take over at this point in our history. But I think it's necessary to make a change if we're going to realize that potential."
