Did I just hear an Evangelical Republican candidate admit that he does not know if the Bible should be taken literally?
Did I just hear him say that the seven days of Creation might represent different periods of history rather than seven rotations of the planet?
Did he just acknowledge that metaphor may have existed in Biblical times?
I still think it’s narrow-minded to reject the overwhelming scientific evidence that supports evolution, and I still would not vote for the man, but that doesn’t mean I can’t respect him.
And with this intellectually honest answer, Mike Huckabee has earned my respect.
