Just a reminder of what he stated:
I’m not going to answer that question. I am a Christian, and I don’t think anybody asking a question about my religion is appropriate.
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.
