"I don't know how God creates. I don't know how we got here," he continued, wondering what God might tell him after he dies. "If God's like, 'Yup, you were a monkey once,' I'll be shocked, but I'll be cool with it."
Beck explained, "If God didn't create, if things evolve, then your rights evolve. You're not endowed by your Creator. "Just like you go from a monkey to a man, you go from simple rights to higher rights and somebody has to take those rights and give them to you and take them away or change them. This is again the evolutionary thinking of progressivism."
Beck took on the issue after O'Donnell's debate yesterday with Democrat Chris Coons in which she championed the teaching of viewpoints other than evolution, such as intelligent design.
Coons stated O'Donnell's views would violate the First Amendment preclusion against a government establishment of religion, saying, "I believe that creationism is religious doctrine."
