Back in June 2008, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal signed the Louisiana Science Education Act into law, allowing public school science teachers to include information about Creationism in their lessons.  In May 2015, he announced that he was launching an exploratory committee to determine whether he will be making a bid for the presidency in 2016.  According to one Slate writer, the connection between these two events is clear: though Governor Jindal majored in biology at Brown University (and therefore knows better), he decided to abandon real science and embrace Creationism to gain support from conservatives and advance his political career.

To many people, it’s as simple as that: if you aren’t stupid or ignorant enough to actually fall for Creationism (which Governor Jindal can’t be, given his education), then you must only be pretending to believe it due to ulterior motives.  But is it possible that a person’s decision to move from evolution to Creationism could be an intellectually honest one, based on sound evidence?  That’s exactly what happened to Dr. John C. Sanford, PhD geneticist and Cornell University professor, who rejected evolution after spending decades at the top of his field.  He reasons for doing so are detailed in his excellent book Genetic Entropy.  This week Kevin takes a look at the inescapable genetic evidence for Creationism as explained by Dr. Sanford.  If Creationists are the dogmatic ones, why do proponents of evolution go to such great lengths to prevent alternate ideas from getting any public hearing?
