Congressman Jack Kingston (and D.L. Hughley) Reject Evolution on 'Real Time With Bill Maher' (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Jan 31st 2011 6:15PM
Bill Maher loves to tweak the religious set, and he got the chance to on 'Real Time With Bill Maher' (Fridays, 10PM ET on HBO) when Georgia Congressman Jack Kingston flat out rejected the concept of evolution.

"I don't believe that a creature crawled out of the sea and became a human," Kingston stated, after arguing that he came from God, and not a monkey.

With the audience clearly on their side, Maher and former Canadian Prime Minister Kim Campbell tried to convince Kingston he was wrong about evolution. Feeling ganged up on, Kingston appealed to panelist Will Cain for help, but the conservative pundit stated that he too believed in evolution.

Finally, comedian D.L. Hughley weighed in, agreeing with Kingston that evolution doesn't explain human life, and taking some of the heat off the beleaguered congressman.

Wow, D.L. Hughley just lost ALL of any respect I once had for him.

Even the way he phrased it was pathetic. You don't "believe" in science, you either understand it, or are braindead. He is clearly intellectually devoid of any capacity for intellectual curiosity to pursue or even review the "science he doesn't `believe' in" concerning the topic he expressed such a retarded view for.

Apparently, species' just started randomly appearing on Earth out of NOWHERE at random f**king intervals a few billion times throughout Earth's history (which is what?, about 6000 years according to D.L.?), with 99% of ALL SPECIES WHO HAVE EVER EXISTED going extinct before our current era and species' for some reason, as the fossil record attests to, irrefutably and undeniably.
This isn't opinion, D.L., this is recorded (and reviewable ANY TIME) FACT, that you so vacuously discard without even understanding.

Remove yourself from a position of "News" and "Informing Others" D.L., as you constitute and possess a vital lack and inability to understand AND/NOR inform even -YOURSELF- about easily understood and required concepts and issues, that ANY adult, -ESPECIALLY- a Current Events and News reporter, MUST possess fundamentally to amiably and correctly analyze and present such issues and their implications, of current events, history, the world, logical, and REALITY.
VERY unfortunate; another casualty of ignorance, intellectual indifference, naivety, complacency, and ineptitude is revealed amidst the US's broad range of inadequate MSM pundits and reporters.

That is a good question, lt546, and one that I would expect from a student of evolution. Science can be difficult to understand and evolution is a particularly complex concept for many people. This comment is not the forum to explain it. Perhaps you should read the wikipedia article about evolution or just take a biology class. I assure you, there are plenty of resources that will explain it better than I can here.

you do realize that's not how it works right.

Creationism is very easily disproved by the fossil record, you would expect to find all life appearing at the same time but thats not anywhere near how it appears. Also as you would expect to find a massive amount of fossils around oh "6000 years ago" if the story of Noah was true but you don't.

The oldest Hominid fossil dates back to 2 million years ago, when our early ancestors spilt from the early primates. Think of it like a tree, sort of, we branched off from primates we didn't replace them we evolved down a different path. That "apes" are still around is actually evidence for Evolution, and they aren't much like their ancestors either, modern chimps evolved after Homosapiens actually.

I really wish you people would educate yourselves on how evolution actually works before you doubt it. I know the story of creationism and evolution thoroughly it's only decent for you to do as well before you try and enter into a debate.

Hominina* fossils the Homo-- Human ancestors 2.6 million years ago. to clarify the Hominid statement.

Because man didn't evolve from apes. This is the most frustrating aspect of the argument against evolution and is a complete misrepresentation of what Darwin said, let alone every scientist since. We've found so called missing links between man and ape now, and the genetics back up the fossil record, even confirming dates as to where these common ancestors existed in the timeline.

What evolution states, as far as human beings and apes goes, is that we both shared a common ancestor that hasn't been around for millions of years. We have found fossils supporting this now, it is not a theory. We KNOW that there was a creature which is long extinct but from which came these two species, as well as a great many others.

Not understanding the simplicity of evolution really is plain ignorance. I truly don't understand how anyone thinks it is a matter of question. If you're not a scientist you really don't have a right to believe it or not. It's not a question of faith, it's fact. You can't choose something that happened didn't just because you refuse to understand it.
