Washington, Sept 26 (ANI): Christine O’Donnell, Republican Senatorial nominee from Delaware, has been shown saying, “Evolution is a myth” in a clip from the Oct. 15, 1998 episode of Bill Maher’s old ABC series, “Politically Incorrect.”

When Maher challenged her to justify the anti-science statement, O’Donnell says, “Well, then why aren’t monkeys still evolving into humans?”

Last week, a viral video clip was also shown in which Christine spoke of having “dabbled into witchcraft”.

Maher said that he would air more clips of O’Donnell from his old show until she agreed to come onto his HBO series.

“It’s like a hostage crisis: Every week you don’t show up,” CBS News quoted him as saying.

“The stuff from the witch last week was silly - who cares what she did in high school and she dabbled with witchcraft?

“But this is somebody who could be in the Senate, who thinks that mice have human brains, and doesn’t understand, ‘Oh my God, that monkeys don’t evolve in the time it takes to watch them?’” he said.

The clip was later posted on Youtube.

O’Donnell has said she is no longer talking to national media outlets.

She has dismissed comments that have garnered controversy as reflecting her passion for her faith and the experimentation typical of young people. (ANI)
