Sarah Palin on Evolution and Creation in Katie Couric Interview

September 30, 2008

COURIC: Do you believe evolution should be taught as an accepted scientific principle or as one of several theories?

PALIN: Oh, I think it should be taught as an accepted principle. And, as you know, I say that also as the daughter of a school teacher, a science teacher, who has really instilled in me a respect for science. It should be taught in our schools. And I won't deny that I see the hand of God in this beautiful creation that is Earth. But that is not part of the state policy or a local curriculum in a school district. Science should be taught in science class.
