World Net Daily is quoting him in an article saying some completely stupid shit about the evolutionary process.
Were human beings created by God in an instant, or over millions of years through evolution?
Glenn Beck addressed the question on his radio show today as he came to the defense of Christine O’Donnell, the Republican U.S. Senate candidate from Delaware under fire for challenging evolution.
“Did evolution just stop?” Beck asked rhetorically. “I haven’t seen the half-monkey/half-person yet. … There’s no other species that’s developing into half-people.”
“I don’t know how God creates. I don’t know how we got here,” he continued, wondering what God might tell him after he dies. “If God’s like, ‘Yup, you were a monkey once,’ I’ll be shocked, but I’ll be cool with it.”
Humans are humans. Monkeys are monkeys. We’re related but we’re not inbred cousins like Beck’s relatives might be.
Beck explained, “If God didn’t create, if things evolve, then your rights evolve. You’re not endowed by your Creator.
“Just like you go from a monkey to a man, you go from simple rights to higher rights and somebody has to take those rights and give them to you and take them away or change them. This is again the evolutionary thinking of progressivism.”
Of course rights evolve. They evolve as cultures and communities grow and adapt to new environments, new ways of thinking about the world and the people and animals in the world. Think about all the work done to get blacks the vote. To get women the vote. The SPCA. The Rights of Children. It’s appalling to realize none of that was automatically given. Absolutely appalling.
Nobody should be in favour of taking any rights away from people once they’ve been fought for and earned. Well, aside from what goes on with prison, I suppose.
Jokingly referring to himself as a “half-monkey person,” Beck blasted self-labeled progressives who seem bent on halting the viewpoints of anyone who disagrees with them.
“They have to stop the half-monkey people leaders so the rest of them can be saved and become fully developed, thinking human beings.”
Beck also challenged the notion that scientists are always correct.
“There are so many things that are accepted science that are later proven to be out of whack and false. … Science, they don’t know their a– from their elbow.”
Proven to be false by other scientists, you ass. What part of you is half-monkey? I’m guessing the brain.
Beck also alluded to the media’s fascination with O’Donnell’s admission she had dabbled in witchcraft in her teenage years.
“I don’t think the Wiccans are creationists. I imagine they’re evolutionists,” he said. “First she’s a witch, and then she’s a Christian. Which is she?”
She’s a problem and she’s an idiot. If she doesn’t understand the First Amendment and still thinks she’s qualified to run for public office, then anyone who votes for her is also a problem and possibly an idiot.
Hopefully sense and intelligence come out ahead.
