    Oh he some cred with me. It is just I have not found anything to contradict what I have linked to so far and I've been looking.

    Re: O'Donnell wins Delaware

    Im sure her quotes from 1996 on sexuality were extreme. Sounds a lit like Jimmy Carters Playboy interview. What a total nutbag. Yes...it sounds extreme and puritanical. What was she in 1996...20? 22? What was Obama in 1996? 30 and a crack fiend? Good stuff there baby. Gooooood stuff.
    Who is her opponent? What are her current political beliefs? What are her opponents current political beliefs?

    If you link her current bliefs, I was stuck by how many she doesn't have a position on yet. Not only that, I found it odd that she wants government funding of education. Now that's a conservative view if ever I saw one.

    But, again, 96 is what we have, with no evidence of change at all. None. Do you advocate assuming change, or proving evidence of change?

    Not that it matters much, but no, not in the same way. It recognizes evolution for what it. O'Donell doesn't. She's on fringe "jsut a theory" side that completely misses what scientific theory actually is. It is not her belief in God that is problematic, but her more radical over the top dismissing of logical conclsions based on sound science.

    I'm not disputing you, but I would love to see quotes from her that led you to believe this.

    Got any ?

    Sure:

    Not only was O'Donnell in favor of teaching creationism alongside evolution, but she wasn't even sure evolution was real. According to a transcript, via Nexis:

    CHRISTINE O'DONNELL, Concerned Women for America: Well, as the senator from Tennessee mentioned, evolution is a theory and it's exactly that. There is not enough evidence, consistent evidence to make it as fact, and I say that because for theory to become a fact, it needs to consistently have the same results after it goes through a series of tests. The tests that they put — that they use to support evolution do not have consistent results. Now too many people are blindly accepting evolution as fact. But when you get down to the hard evidence, it's merely a theory. But creation —

    Whoops. Technically, evolution is a theory in the scientific-nomenclature sense, but it's so widely accepted by every legitimate scientist in the world that it is considered fact.

    (snip)

    CHRISTINE O'DONNELL: Now, he said that it's based on fact. I just want to point out a couple things. First of all, they use carbon dating, as an example, to prove that something was millions of years old. Well, we have the eruption of Mt. Saint Helens and the carbon dating test that they used then would have to then prove that these were hundreds of millions of years younger, when what happened was they had the exact same results on the fossils and canyons that they did the tests on that were supposedly 100 millions of years old. And it's the kind of inconsistent tests like this that they're basing their 'facts' on.

    We Googled this and apparently it refers to some tests run by a guy at the Institute for Creation Research. Definitely the kind of stuff on which you want to pin your refutation of evolution. Well, at least O'Donnell didn't claim that there is just as much or more evidence for creationism as there is for evolution, right?

    CHRISTINE O'DONNELL: Well, creationism, in essence, is believing that the world began as the Bible in Genesis says, that God created the Earth in six days, six 24-hour periods. And there is just as much, if not more, evidence supporting that.
