Minister of State for Science and Technology Does Not Believe In Evolution


  Conservative Minister Gary Goodyear, a former Guelph Chiropractor who is responsible for massive cuts to science and technology in his role as minister of that particular ministry has admitted that he is a creationist and not a believer in evolution in an interview with the G&M.
 When asked if he beleived in evolution the minister stated “I’m not going to answer that question. I am a Christian, and I don’t think anybody asking a question about my religion is appropriate.”
 So why give anybody an answer then Gary and why identify yourself as one religion or the other if you are so concerned about the effects of identifying your personal position?
 It is widely believed that cuts to the science sector have been brought on by the influence of religion in the ministers’ personal life. Many of Harpers’ cabinet ministers are of the same opinion on religion…but at least they keep their mouths’ shut.(it’s hard to say if they are smart enough to do this on their own or if this came as a result of a privy council order)
 There is no room for religion in our western democracy government. I am of the mind that people need to leave their personal convictions at home when elected.

    If Mr Goodyear doesn’t think people asking questions about his religion is appropriate perhaps he should be in another line of work.

    As an MP and Cabinet Minister anything that reflects on his decision making and world view should be fair game as far as interview questions go.

    From his non-answer I would take it that he is a creationist. That makes him someone who is prepared to deny the scientific realities that are staring him in the face in favour of a myth that only impressionable children and deluded adults could possibly entertain.

    Typically that’s just the tip of the iceberg. You’d really be shook up if you knew some of the other weird shit the guy probably believes.
