According to the Globe article here, Minister Goodyear has finally come out on the side of evolution.
Mr. Goodyear said he originally refused to answer the Globe question because it was irrelevant and his beliefs have nothing to do with government policy.
At the same time the Globe also reports that a spokesman for Prime Minister Stephen Harper stressed that creationism is not part of the federal science agenda.
Methinks that Mr. Goodyear got a call from the PMO.
Either way, good to know that it was just plain old conservative arrogance that prevented him from answering and not God.
Just trying to keep the posting accurate.
