    This man is a high ranking member of the House Science Committee. It it any wonder that we are so far behind in science? And the GOP fully supports this kind of willfull ignorance.

    Paul Broun: Evolution, Big Bang 'Lies Straight From The Pit Of Hell'

    Congressman Paul Broun (R-Ga.) said last week that evolution and the big bang theory are "lies straight from the pit of Hell."

    "God's word is true. I've come to understand that. All that stuff I was taught about evolution and embryology and the big bang theory, all that is lies straight from the pit of Hell," said Broun, who is an MD. "It's lies to try to keep me and all the folks who were taught that from understanding that they need a savior."

    He continued:

    "You see, there are a lot of scientific data that I've found out as a scientist that actually show that this is really a young Earth. I don't believe that the earth's but about 9,000 years old. I believe it was created in six days as we know them. That's what the Bible says."

    According to NBC News, Broun's comments were part of a larger speech given at the 2012 Sportsman's Banquet at Liberty Baptist Church in Hartwell, Georgia on September 27th. A clip of the video was distributed by the The Bridge Project, a liberal watchdog group.

    Broun is a high-ranking member of the House Science Committee, of which Rep. Todd Akin (R-Mo.) is also a member.

    Akin made headlines last month for suggesting that women don't get pregnant from "legitimate rape" because their bodies have "ways to try to shut that whole thing down."

    I like to visualize the Magic Sky Fairy looking down upon them as they take His name in vain, plotting His vengeance.

    No, the dumb ass is an MD. Not somebody I would ever go to.

    Republicans will never have "smart people". And they cheer when you tell them that.

    If your so smart, I have one question, to this point no smart lib has been able to answer it.

    You ready, take a deep breath now.

    What caused the big bang? Please be very specific. Warning this is a zombie trap.

    I'll wait.

    That was called one man giving his opinion it's not one I or I suspect most people agree with I simply take for what it is nothing more or less something those of you who fancy yourself such high brow intellectuals should do as well but apparently can't.
