Rep. Todd Akin, who is running against Sen.Claire McCaskill in the Missouri Senate race, raised doubts about the science behind evolution in audio obtained by ThinkProgress.
During a Tea Party meeting on Thursday, Akin said, “Well, I’ve taken a look at both sides of the thing. And it seems to me that evolution takes a tremendous amount of faith.”
“To have all of a sudden all of the different things that have to be lined up, to create something as sophisticated as life, it takes a lot of faith,” he added. “I don’t see it as even as a matter of science, because I don’t know if you can prove one or the other.”
