"lies straight from the pit of Hell"
« on: October 06, 2012, 07:07:36 AM »
In a report from NBC;
Quote
U.S. Rep. Paul Broun's view that the theories of evolution and the big bang are "lies straight from the pit of Hell"


From the article
Quote
"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."

He should be expelled from Congress for taking the stance which disregards  the Constitution. Something about making no law is support of religion. He is sworn (probably on his own bible) to uphold the Constitution.

When you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all.

He is on the science committee in the house.  Todd Atkins of Missouri sits on that committee also.  Can you imagine the discussions there? :o

And for the billionth time, I am thankful I don't live in America.
You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

We need to start publicly castigating these idiots for the crap they peddle. We need to start calling them out as idiots because a spade is a spade. We need to make them look like the psychiatric patients that they are.

That this man is on the House Science Committee is appalling and criminal.

How do you fight stupid?  Logic is a skill these people are void of.  I'm guessing the "pit" part of hell must be worse than the other regular parts.

Just as soon as you do, they cry "Attack of the religion haters!" and rally the sheeple to join in the bucket of stupid... and be proud of doing so.
There is no opinion so absurd that a preacher could not express it.

But those sheeple are shrinking.

I prefer to hang out in the side-lines of Hell... it's closer to the toilets.

I think the problem here is a failure to communicate: Evolution is not Atheism. I think that's the correlation most of these protestant Bible-thumpers believe. They are two separate things. I don't think they get that.

This thread is about lab-grown dicks, not some mincy, old, British poof of an actor.

You're right Nam, they don't understand. But I think we're going about this wrong.

What we need to ask them to do is explain something they really, really think they do understand, and have them keep trying until they finally say something that actually matches reality. That will give us a place to start. But until we know exactly how stupid they are, we have nothing to work with.

The worst part about such ignorance is that the dumb value it. Here we have a whole subsection of our culture who brags about how hard they work for their money and they aren't willing in the least to learn stuff. They'll work for money, but not for reality.

One the news tonight is the republican from Indiana running for some office who thinks pregnancies from rape are a gift from god. That other guy (Akin) says that women can't get pregnant from rape. Is this like, you know, another rift in the christian world. Have two new churches just started up? The Fifth Day Holy Rapists vs. The Holy Church of Semenized Miracles.

I'd tell them I'm getting cynical but they'd just wonder if it was a Schwinn or a Huffy.
Jesus, the cracker flavored treat!
