According to, get this, Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA), who is a prominent member of the House Science Committee. Broun made his thoughts known about science during a lecture at the Liberty Baptist Church Sportsman’s Banquet on September 27, 2012, in Hartwell, Georgia. Further, Broun also told the audience that all available scientific evidence leads him to believe that the Earth is only about 9,000 years old.
Fuckity, fuck, fuck. How is this assclown a member of the House Science Committee when he doesn’t even believe in science? Can we start a House Christian Committee and just give him a position on that? It’s moments like these when you realize that America truly is fucked if bozos like that guy are helping to run the show.
I should preface that with saying I have nothing against Christians or Christianity. People should be free to believe what they want. The issue is that do we really want Congressmen who are anti-science to be partially responsible for driving science and technology policy in this country? Further, Rep. Todd Akin also serves on the House Science Committee. He was the asshat who said a woman’s body would defend itself from unwanted pregnancy in cased of legitimate rape. [via rogerebert]
