|Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal defended intelligent design as a legitimate scientific discipline that has a place in the nation’s classrooms Sunday on Face the Nation.|
Jindal, the 37-year-old son of Indian immigrants, is considered to be on John McCain’s short list for vice presidential candidates. Jindal said media speculation touting him as a potential running mate for McCain was “flattering”, according to an article by the Agence France Presse.
The moderator in the video below asked Jindal if he has doubts about evolution since Jindal was a biology major in college.
“I’m a Christian,” Jindal said. “I do think that God played a role in creating not only the earth but mankind. Now the way that he did it, I’d certainly want my kids to be exposed to the very best science. I don’t want any facts or theories or explanations to be withheld from them because of political correctness.”
Jindal said that local school districts should decide for themselves what theories to teach and that federal and state governments should stay out of the equation.
