Asked whether he regards the Bible as the literal and inerrant word of God, Mr. Bush said in the earlier interview: "From Scripture you can gain a lot of strength and solace and learn life's lessons. That's what I believe, and I don't necessarily believe every single word is literally true.
"I think that, for example, on the issue of evolution, the verdict is still out on how God created the earth," he said, a position that separates him from the fundamentalists. "I don't use the Bible as necessarily a way to predict the findings of science."
Mr. Bush learned a lesson from his first campaign for governor, when he created a controversy by telling an Austin reporter that only those who have accepted Christ as their savior can enter the kingdom of heaven.

The gravity sticker is the best of them, considering that "evolution is a theory" is equivalent to "gravity is a theory."
You'd be amazed by how many closed minded, hard working, intelligent sharp people I met.
