MSNBC anchor newsman Chris Matthews has long been known for his religious and conservative bigotry and his latest tirade is no different.
Matthews' guest on his program was Republican National Committee chair Reince Priebus. Ignoring the current economic crisis, job crisis and immigration crisis, Matthews attacked the RNC chair and the leading Republican candidates when he said:
“Aren't you worried, though, that in a world where we have to compete with science, in science and technology with Chinese and Indian young geniuses, and some of them move here, and some that are still over in their countries around the world, we're competing in a world of science and technology to be a country that might be led by someone who doesn't believe in evolution? Who doesn't believe in climate change? Who doesn't believe in the scientific community of his own country, the National Academy of Science, for example, on climate change? Wouldn't that be kind of scary to have somebody who is so anti-intellectual as president?”

Matthews is typical of those that are so married to the theory of evolution that they will hang every part of their being on it. They equate it as being equal to science when in reality it isn’t science. Evolution is a belief system just like any other religion. Their god is humanistic naturalism. They worship it as devoutly as Muslim suicide bombers believe in Islam. And like the suicide bombers, they are willing to die for their religion.
Additionally, note that Matthews implies that anyone who does not believe in evolution is unintelligent and ignorant, and that applies for any conservative evangelical Christian who believes in a literal biblical creation as taught in the Bible. Evolutionists’ extreme blind prejudice will not allow them to believe that anyone who believes in creation could have any kind of credibility or intelligence.
I’ll have you know that some of the most intelligent people I have ever met believe in a literal 6 -24 hour days of creation a mere 6,000 years ago. Men like Dr. D. Russell Humphreys, retired physicist who worked at the famous Sandia National Laboratory. Humphreys, using his knowledge of Scripture and physics has successfully made a number of predictions of the planets in our solar system that science later proved to be accurate. Dr. John Baumgardner, who worked at the Los Alamos National Laboratory created the most sophisticated three dimensional supercomputer model of the earth known as TERRA. There is also Dr. John Sanford, geneticist at Cornell University. And the list goes on and on.
On the other hand, some of the most intellectually blind people I have ever met are renowned evolutionary scientists like Dr. Niles Eldredge and Dr. Jere Lipps. Their complete faith in evolution would not allow them to see the plain evidence in front of their face.
And to top it off, you have people who at least are honest enough to admit their religious adherence to evolution regardless of the evidence, such as famed Harvard geneticist Dr. Richard Lewontin who said:
“Our willingness to accept scientific claims that are against common sense is the key to an understanding of the real struggle between science and the supernatural. We take the side of science in spite of the patent absurdity of some of its constructs, in spite of its failure to fulfill many of its extravagant promises of health and life, in spite of the tolerance of the scientific community for unsubstantiated just-so stories, because we have a prior commitment, a commitment to materialism. It is not that the methods and institutions of science somehow compel us to accept a material explanation of the phenomenal world, but, on the contrary, that we are forced by our a priori adherence to material causes to create an apparatus of investigation and a set of concepts that produce material explanations, no matter how mystifying to the uninitiated. Moreover, that materialism is absolute, for we cannot allow a Divine Foot in the door.”
And what Matthews fails to realize is that evolution goes against the very foundational laws of biology, chemistry, physics and information. So to believe in the theory of evolution is actually demonstrating one’s lack of intelligence, honesty and integrity in science.
So what Chris Matthews is really saying is that he would prefer someone of his own religious persuasion than someone who might be able to bring our nation out of its current crises and save us from complete economic collapse.
