Former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore, who was removed from office in 2003 after defying a federal court order to remove a Ten Commandments monument from the state Supreme Court building, claimed that "there's no scientific evidence of evolution."
From the March 22 edition of MSNBC's Hardball with Chris Matthews:
MOORE: There's no scientific evidence of evolution. Evolution is a theory and has been recognized so by many. You have always heard of the missing link, haven't you?
MOORE: It is still missing. In other words, they can't explain how male and female came and every species from one atom or one amoeba.
