It's a fair point not to assign the views of a parent to a sibling. So it would be a fair question to ask Senator Ted Cruz if he agrees with his father's view on evolutionary biology:
[You] need to understand, it’s just like evolution. You know most Americans have their head in the sand about evolution. I’ve met so many Christians that tell me ‘evolution is a scientific fact.’ Baloney! I am a scientist, there is nothing scientific about evolution. But you know something, Karl Marx said it, ‘I can use the teachings of Darwin to promote communism.’ Why? Because communism, or call it socialism if you think communism is too hard a word, necessitates for government to be your god and for government to be your god they need to destroy the concept of God. That’s why communism and evolution go hand and hand. Evolution is one of the strongest tools of Marxism because if they can convince you that you came from a monkey, it’s much easier to convince you that God does not exist.
Father Cruz may
be a certifiable dominionist, he may be living decades in the past trying vainly to undo those ancient perceived wrongs in his homeland. He may
be an Old Earth
or Young Earth Creationist
. But I'm willing to bet he's not much of a scientist.
