Did Evolution Help Get President Obama Elected?

by Ken Ham on October 25, 2009

Well, a recent news report states:

Why did Barack Obama win the US election and did the fact he is over six feet tall influence the voters? The authors of a paper published in Current Biology this month argue that due to 'a hangover from our evolutionary past' factors like age, sex, height and weight play a major part in the determining our choice of leaders.

However, the Bible makes it clear that God raises up kings and destroys kingdoms—God is sovereignly in control of everything—even the election of President Obama.  And the Scripture also commands us to pray for our leaders (I Timothy 2:1-2)—and we certainly need to do that.

Creation Museum Ahead of Last Year

Attendance at our Creation Museum is ahead of the previous year!  I still remember secular scoffers claiming no one would come, and also even Christian scoffers claiming it would be a white elephant!  On Friday, a local television news crew interviewed me concerning the Creation Museum attendance.  They were amazed at how many people have visited (almost 900,000 in 2 ½ years) and the fact that attendance is even up compared to  last year.  I have included  a photograph taken Friday of some of the buses that brought various groups (a total of 1300 people were here that day, and 1700 yesterday—and we’re no longer in the summer tourist season): P1070872
