Father Cruz is a creationist, too

This just gets better. Pastor Rafael Cruz, who anointed his son Ted Cruz as one of those lucky duckies favored by God-eh to rule over us peons from a luxurious castle, also doesn’t think much of evolutionary biology:

RW Watch — need to understand, it’s just like evolution. You know most Americans have their head in the sand about evolution. I’ve met so many Christians that tell me ‘evolution is a scientific fact.’ Baloney! I am a scientist, there is nothing scientific about evolution. But you know something, Karl Marx said it, ‘I can use the teachings of Darwin to promote communism.’ Why? Because communism, or call it socialism if you think communism is too hard a word, necessitates for government to be your god and for government to be your god they need to destroy the concept of God. That’s why communism and evolution go hand and hand. Evolution is one of the strongest tools of Marxism because if they can convince you that you came from a monkey, it’s much easier to convince you that God does not exist.

There’s nothing scientifif abut evolution …. Holy fucking shit, this clown may be a certifiable dominionist, he may be living decades in the past trying vainly to undo those ancient perceived wrongs, but I’m willing to bet he’s not much of a scientist.

I’ll now open the floor for this nonsense to be dismantled, only noting that if using an external field of study to justify authoritarian regimes disproves that underlying analysis, religion is in big, big trouble, mien fuhrer.

    Just when did being a theologian equal being a scientist? Science studies reality which has nothing to do with theology.

    One has to stand in awe at the ignorance shown by clowns like Cruz. Just for his information, the Stalin regime declared the Theory of Evolution,namely natural selection, to be anti-Socialist and bourgeois propaganda and banned its teaching in the former Soviet Union. Prominent evolutionary biologists like Vavilov were arrested and sent to the gulag and Darwin’s books were banned. One can read all about it in Martin Gardner’s Fads and Fallacies in Science.

    Rafael Cruz studied math in university, not science. He thinks that because he might have met a few geologists and engineers when he was in Alberta he is now a qualified scientist. Typical creationist lying for the Jeebus.

    Re bushrat @ #4

    Alberta isn’t exactly representative of Canada. It’s not known as the Alabama of Canada for nothing.

    I thought we were the Texas of Canada. Have we been demoted, or is Alabama an improvement?

    What’s the deal with that hyphenated word?

    Also never mind the stupid creationism, what a flippin’ homophobic liar this dropkick slimeball seems to be based on the clip here.

    colnago80 #3, it was genetics that the Soviet leaders had outlawed as Mendelist Weismannist Morganist idealism. Trofim Lysenko, a crop-plant breeder and quack geneticist, had gotten the favor of Communist Party leaders, including Joseph Stalin himself. He denied the existence of genes, and he claimed that he could shape crop plants’ heredity.

    One of Trofim Lysenko’s speeches: Soviet Biology in 1948. He slammed the notion of a “hereditary substance”, even as Western biologists were closing in on its nature.
