    "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. And it’s lies to try to keep me and all the folks who were taught that from understanding that they need a savior. 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." -- Representative Paul Broun (R-GA), US House of Representatives [Anti-] Science Committee

    I put in Representative Broun's comments on evolution to commemorate February 12th as Darwin Day, so Happy Darwin Day...for some. It is not an official US holiday. That approval would need to get past Representative Broun and others on the Science Committee. Somehow I don't see that happening soon.

    Sadly, he can continue with that crazy line of thought and depending on what state he governs in, quite possibly get re-elected several more times. It doesn't matter if you're speaking crazy talk as long as it's what the voters want to hear.
