Along with Christine O’Donnell, he doesn’t accept evolution because he doesn’t see monkeys evolving into humans. TPM reports:
On his radio show today, Beck wondered how many people in the country believe in evolution, and said he doesn’t: “I don’t think we came from monkeys. I think that’s ridiculous. I haven’t seen a half-monkey, half-person yet.”
“If I get to the other side and God’s like, ‘You know what, yep, you were a monkey once,’ I’ll be shocked, but I’ll be cool with it,” he said.
“They have to make you care,” Beck continued. “They have to force it down your throat. When anybody has to force it — it’s a problem. You didn’t have to force that the world was round. Truth is truth.”
I have news for Beck: not only did we evolve from apelike ancestors, but there isn’t any “other side.”
