Republican Representative Paul Broun of Georgia stated in a speech that evolution, embryology and the Big Bang theory are “lies straight from the pit of hell” meant to dissuade people that they need a savior. He expressed his belief that the Earth is 9,000 years old and was created in six days. In addition, he said that the Bible directs him as to how to vote in Congress. Broun is a medical doctor who is running unopposed by Democrats in November. He is on the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology. Watch:
BROUN: God’s word is true. I’ve come to understand that. All that stuff I was taught about evolution and embryology and 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 are taught that from understanding that they need a savior.
