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 ****" because their bodies have "ways to try to shut that whole thing down."

As Gawker points out, Broun made headlines in 2009 for trying to make 2010 "the year of the Bible."

Broun is running for reelection unopposed, the AP reports.

Watch a clip of his remarks above. The full video is available here.

I'm sure they have that clip on a 24 hour loop.  Maybe you're right about this country going up in flames, Volitzer. It will be destroyed by the religious right. That's a more plausible scenario. Don't you think?

I'm hoping that Mitt bans that science stuff once he's elected!  All the learning good people need to learn is right there in the good book.

There is nothing in your magic book that is good, unless you think slavery, ****, incest, torture and genocide are good.

These religious nuts will help the NWO by being ignorant.

I think the religious nuts will beat them to it, Volitzer. They are the real threat to this country.
