Where Does Mike Beebe Stand (Today)?

The Ark Times put this up on their blog yesterday saying that Beebe is no straddler and that he believes in Evolution. We find it very convenient that the Ark Times has forgotten that they attacked Beebe not too long ago for saying he believed in Intelligent Design.

The media wrote several stories today about Beebe attacking Mike Huckabee for believing in Intelligent Design. We would like to know what Mike Beebe has learned since August 13th that would cause him to say that believing in Intelligent Design in wrong?

"I believe in intelligent design and I don't think intelligent design and evolution are mutually exclusive," Beebe said...

It appears Mike Beebe was for Intelligent Design before he was against it...

Below is a story one of our loyal readers posted on our comments. It comes from an August 13, 2006 Arkansas Times article blasting Beebe for believing in Intelligent Design:

How low can he go?

Aug. 13, 2006 (Arkansas Times delivered by Newstex) --

Sometimes, it really is better not to read the newspaper. But I choose to torture myself after checking in on e-mail in Stockholm this morning. And what do I find in the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette but another stomach-turning report by the Democrat-Gazette on gubernatorial candidate positions on issues of the day.

Today the outrage is from Mike Beebe. Again. The subject is intelligent design. Is there not a single issue on which he will not pander?

Some candidates for major offices this year say students in Arkansas schools should have access to information on "intelligent design," a theory on the origins of mankind often offered as an alternative - if not a rebuttal - to the theory of evolution.

Those candidates include Mike Beebe, the Democratic nominee for governor who says information on the subject should be "available" to students.

"I believe in intelligent design and I don't think intelligent design and evolution are mutually exclusive," Beebe said.

Beebe's statement said he believes "information" about intelligent design "should be available to Arkansas students."

"This would provide Arkansas students background they need to wrestle with these and other fundamental questions as they become adults," he said. "I believe both should be available because one is the consensus theory of the scientific community, and the other is the predominant belief of most Arkansans and Americans."

He didn't say whether the theory should be a required part of the state's curriculum.A spokesman for his campaign declined to say how Beebe wanted to make information on intelligent design available to students.He also declined to say whether Beebe also believed in evolution.

So-called intelligent design is mutually exclusive from the teaching of evolution in a scientific and constitutional context. Do some reading, Mike. And grow a backbone, will ya? Even the Republicans in Kansas have gotten this one right.
