Rick Perry: Evolution Is 'Theory' With 'Gaps' -- VIDEO

August 18, 2011

While campaigning in New Hampshire on Thursday afternoon, presidential candidate Rick Perry called evolution "a theory" with "some gaps in it," USA Today reports. The remark was prompted when a young boy asked the Texas governor about the age of the earth and evolution.

"I hear your mom was asking about evolution," Perry said. "That's a theory that is out there—and it's got some gaps in it.

The boy's mother, who was standing nearby, can be heard telling her son, "Ask him why he doesn't believe in science."

 

Perry made headlines on Wednesday when he told a New Hampshire crowd that he harbors major doubts about human contributions to global warming.
