Elsewhere in this volume she talks about creationism, saying she “didn’t believe in the theory that human beings — thinking, loving beings — originated from fish that sprouted legs and crawled out of the sea” or from “monkeys who eventually swung down from the trees.” In everything that happens to her, from meeting Todd to her selection by Mr. McCain for the Republican ticket, she sees the hand of God: “My life is in His hands. I encourage readers to do what I did many years ago, invite Him in to take over.”
The only question is, what manner of creationist is she? That quote leaves open the old-earth, young-earth, and intelligent design varieties. While young-earth creationists are unquestionably the worst, as the most ignorant, being a member of any group speaks immediately ill of one’s mental faculties. I guess we’ll have to buy the book to find out.
UPDATE: she’s either an old earth or ID creationist. Given the supporters of one are usually supporters of the other, and in fact can’t tell the difference between them most of the time (h/t Judge Jones of the E.D. PA), it’s probably not important which one she is.
