I see Missouri's GOP Senate candidate, Todd Akin, is now holding forth on evolution:
I don’t see it as even a matter of science because I don’t know that you can prove one or the other.
Todd, your opinion would be incontestable if it weren't for just one little snag: the proven, undisputed science of evolution, upon which all life sciences are based. It's a minor counterargument, Todd, but one which even fruit flies understand; which, in comparative relation to the modern Republican Party, kinda proves the whole evolutionary ladder thing.
What's peculiar about Todd's, I'm sure, considered opinion is that they don't come any more Socially Darwinistic than Rep. Todd Akin. In every socioeconomic aspect of life Todd is right there, cheering on the fittest survivors--any who can slash, burn, or crush their way to the top, free from the fussy fetters of an opportunity-equalizing government.
Yet Todd's rejection of the higher-ordered idea that group cooperation might advance the species is, again, but conclusive evidence of evolution: the lower orders do, quite naturally, linger a while, until their extinction.
