Evolution and the Big Bang "lies straight from the pit of Hell"

“All that stuff I was taught about evolution, embryology, the Big Bang theory, all that is lies straight from the pit of hell,” U.S Rep. Paul Broun said in an address last month at a banquet organized by Liberty Baptist Church in Hartwell, Georgia. “And it’s lies to try to keep me and all the folks who were taught that from understanding that they need a savior.”

Broun, a medical doctor by training, serves on the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology.

 Speaking at Liberty Baptist Church’s Sportsman’s Banquet on September 27, he said that “a lot of scientific data that I’ve found out as a scientist that actually show that this is really a young Earth.”

More at the link, including a rebuttal by Bill Nye (yes, that Bill Nye).

Once again, I have to ask, who the hell is electing these psychos?

  • When 46% of the population believes in creationism, what do you expect?

    Considering he's from Hartwell, a county that borders SC, I'm sure the % is a helluvalot higher.

    Remember the original dem suggested health care plan? The one that sent you to prison (which is paid for by the taxpayers) if you can't afford health insurance and heat at the same time?

  • I will preface this with I do not happen to agree with him.

    Do you think that everyone elected has to believe the same thing? Isn't that against the idea of freedom. Are they not allowed to speak their mind just because they are elected officials? Obviously someone thinks this man does a good job of representing what they belive in, whether they agree with this particular bit or not.

    Just like anyone else he is a person of various ideas, not just one. Should he be hanged because you don't agree with one thing he says?
