Pence rejects evolution, claims creationism is the only rational explanation.

Mike Pence, Donald Trump’s running mate, is a radical Christian extremist who wants creationism taught in public schools.

Confronted by Hardball host Chris Matthews on evolution, Pence obfuscated on the issue, made appeals to God, and ultimately refused to acknowledge the scientific truth of evolution.
However, when serving as a congressman, Pence made it clear that he opposes evolution, and believes that only creationism (intelligent design) provides a “rational explanation for the known universe.”

In 2002, Pence delivered a passionate speech on the floor of the House of Representatives arguing that evolution is “only a theory” and that public schools should teach the theory of intelligent design as well as the theory of evolution.
