Lies! Lies straight from the pit of hell!

US Representative Paul Broun (from Georgia) is quoted here:

 "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. 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.

 "And what I've come to learn is that it's the manufacturer's handbook, is what I call it. It teaches us how to run our lives individually, how to run our families, how to run our churches. But it teaches us how to run all of public policy and everything in society. And that's the reason as 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."

I don't know about you, but I'm personally terrified that anyone holding such ludicrous views could get elected anywhere in the United States. Not surprised, unfortunately... just terrified.

Update: According to this article, Broun "sits on the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology." I am now one step beyond terrified.
