“We are evolving every year, every decade. That’s a fact, whether it is to the intensity of the sun, whether it is to, as a chiropractor, walking on cement versus anything else, whether it is running shoes or high heels, of course we are evolving to our environment. But that’s not relevant and that is why I refused to answer the question. The interview was about our science and tech strategy, which is strong.”
I’m not sure which is worse, a minister of the Crown not subscribing to the well-established theory of evolution, or one that has no idea of the difference between evolution and adaptation. And, I might add, your science and tech strategy is not strong if you haven’t asked actual scientists to help formulate it. I expect we’ll see the strings cut on this particular marionette soon.
