Christine O'Donnell: 'Evolution Is A Myth. Why Aren't Monkeys Still Evolving Into Humans?' (VIDEO)

Bill Maher has so far kept his promise to air an embarrassing clip of Tea Party favorite and Delaware Republican Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell every week that she refuses to be a guest on his HBO show, "Real Time."

Last night Maher showed a video from an appearance she made in 1998 on his old program "Politically Incorrect" in which she calls evolution "a myth" and backs up her claim with the question: if evolution is real, "why aren't monkeys still evolving into humans?"

This latest uncovered statement comes on the heels of a clip unearthed from an old "Scarborough Country" episode in which she insists that we stop the whole nation from having sex.

Since she was a guest on Maher's previous show 22 times, it's unlikely that the steady stream of past statements coming to light will stop any time soon.

MAHER: Evolution is a myth? Have you ever looked at a monkey?

O'DONNELL: Well then, why they -- why aren't monkeys still evolving into humans?
