Perry Questioned on Evolution and Creationism in New Hampshire; Says Texas Teaches Both

The battle between supporters of creationism and evolution made its way onto the 2012 campaign trail Thursday as a young boy, prompted by his mother, asked Texas Gov. Rick Perry questions on the subject, leading Perry to suggest both are taught in Texas public schools.

"How old do I think the Earth is?" Perry said repeating the boy's question. "I have no idea - it's pretty old. It goes back a long way - I'm not sure anyone knows really completely know how old it is."

But Perry continued, saying the boy's mother was really trying to get a response about creationism and evolution. While Texas public schools don't officially teach creationism, some claim Perry has pushed a weakened evolution curriculum to open the door for creationism in schools.

"I know your mom is asking about evolution," he said. "It's a theory that's out there and it's got some gaps in it. In Texas, we teach creationism and evolution because I feel you're smart enough to figure out which one is right."



Intelligent Americans know that evolution is a lie. A made up story imagined by those who don't like the idea of being accountable to God. It's just sad that evolution is taught in public schools to please the liberal atheist/secular mislead.

It would be a true blessing to Get the whole imagined lie thrown out of school curriculum. And to have it start teaching truth. Which is taught in the Bible.
