On Sept. 27, 2012 Representative Paul Broun was quoted as saying ,"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..."

The Congressman is entitled to his beliefs, but if this is truly what he believes then he has no place on a subcommittee on science, space and technology.

      We cannot afford to have people in positions of authority thinking they can get away with setting back the country thousands of years. If you want to push such an agenda, just go and spout it around your church, not in our government. Religious nutbags have no business in the government of the USA, or anywhere.

      If you don't believe that science is legitimate - despite ALL evidence to the contrary, including your freaking smartphone - why on earth would you serve on the House Sceince and Technology committee? Science and religion are not related, nor are they mutually exclusive, but if you're going to reject science anyway, you have no business having a hand in this country's scientific development.

      It is ludicrous for someone who denies science to be able to dictate its funding.

      It's people like him that make us the laughing stock to the rest of the world, of someone who has such high education to spit in the face of all those who lifted us out of the age of darkness, he must step down
