To the best of my knowledge Mr Leiberman isn't supposed to push his beleif's on others..

Mom2five:Mr. Leiberman is pretty decent senator and actually has served for some time for CT. He has a long track record in politics, although for clarity's sake I think he probably will have to give out some details about his religious beleifs- esp. in regards to evolution. OTH I haven't seen him pushing his religious agenda on anyone either. Like any intelligent person should living in a diverse country, he appears to have some tolerance.

Just thought I'd throw this into the pot. It is very possible that Joe Liberman doesn't believe in evolution either. He is an Orthodox Jew and evolution doesn't totally jive with our theology either. Does that effect how you feel about him?

Well, now, doesn't totally "dis-gibe" with it, either.
R' Kook made the very solid point that the Torah isn't a science book.
And there are many people who are very, very Orthodox who believe in a kind of quasi combination of evolution fitting into the Creation.

For some it actually takes more faith to believe in evolution (since it hasn't totally been proved) as it does to believe in creation.

I thought Trudeau handled it well, explaining that "rejecting evolution requires him to repudiate the core tenets of entire fields of study such as biochemistry, genetics, ecology, paleontology, anatomy, physics, astronomy, geology, cosmology, history and archaeology!"
So ... is anyone else as appalled as I am? Maybe more interestingly, is anyone NOT appalled at this?
