In clarifying evolution position, Goodyear digs deeper hole

... Gary Goodyear offers this nugget of wisdom on a program today on the Conservative Television Network.
Jane Taber: So you do believe in evolution. You believe in the theory of evolution. Let’s just get this off the table right now.

Gary Goodyear: We are evolving, every year, every decade. That's a fact. Whether it's to the intensity of the sun, whether it's to, as a chiropractor, walking on cement versus anything else, whether it’s running shoes or high heels, of course, we are evolving to our environment. But that's not relevant. And that's why I refused to answer the question. The interview was about our science and tech strategy, which is strong…

Huh?! You were asked about the theory of evolution. Do you even know what that is, Mr. Science & Technology?

Then we've The Canadian Press reporting Goodyear having said, also today, that he "does indeed believe in evolution."

Tip for journalists: Using 'X' in a sentence doesn't mean the utterer has any understanding of X.
