|Subject: BBT, Evolution, & Embryology: Lies from Hell||Date: 10/5/2012 8:43 PM|

Georgia Representative Paul Broun distrusts pert near everything scientists have told him:
“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,” Broun said. “And it’s lies to try to keep me and all the folks who were taught that from understanding that they need a savior.”
Of course, mistrust of cosmology and evolution are par for the course for evangelicals. But embryology? Seriously? How does he think that humans reproduce--by meiosis?
Broun serves on the House Science Committee
[A]s your congressman I hold the holy Bible as being the major directions to me of how I vote in Washington, D.C., and I’ll continue to do that.”
No you don't, Representative Broun. You use your private interpretation of the Bible to tell you how to vote. In fact, here's my challenge. The next time you vote on a bill, you let us know what Bible passage you used to justify your vote, and I'll find another Bible passage that will say you should have voted the other way.
What's really upsetting? Broun is an M.D. and has a B.S in Chemistry.
What's even more upsetting? He's running unopposed.
