Gary Goodyear Loves Evolution

Gary Goodyear's response when asked if he now believes in evolution:
Well, I said evolution is a great theory. You know, all of us who get involved in science spend a lot of time away from religion to read all kinds of theories about science, probably get in many ways the most rewarding experience you could have, you know.

It's not backyard science, you don't see all the hot scientists and all the great experiments but you get a real sense -- the kind old and the of sciencey stuff I've done, especially the last seven or eight months, you get a real sense of evolution, what it means, who dreamed it up and what its challenges are. And I think this theory has unlimited potential.

That's why I think it would be so exciting to take over at this point in science. But I think it's necessary to make a change if we're going to realize that potential.
After all, he was caught off guard.
