Since some of the Republican candidates seem to have indicated that they don’t believe in evolution, let me offer my perennial warning on this subject — people who don’t believe in evolution are dead wrong, but there are actually a very large number of them in the United States — depending on how you count, it’s about half of the population. So taking the creationist line or hesitating is a very understandable reaction for a practical politician.
