I have no reason to think Mike Pence isn’t a nice guy. I suppose he may well even be a solid legislator. But he does not believe in evolution.

Which is too weird, and sorta crazy. Especially for a potential American vice president.

This, from a 2009 interview with Chris Matthews:

MATTHEWS: Okay, you want to educate the American people about science and its relevance today. Do you believe in evolution, sir?

PENCE: Do I believe in evolution? I embrace the view that God created the heavens and the earth, the seas and all that’s in them.

MATTHEWS: Right. But do you believe in evolution as the way he did it?

PENCE: The means, Chris, that he used to do that, I can’t say. But I do believe in that fundamental truth.
