Congressman Mike Pence on evolution

Kudos to Chris Matthews for pushing Indiana Congressman Mike Pence on evolution (tip from Pharyngula). And I thought anti-evolution rants of Zakir Naik (and others) were embarrassing. Ok - I admit, this is still not as bad as Zakir Naik - but then Naik is not an elected congressman in the US. Shouldn't the standards be a wee bit higher to be in the government of the most technologically advanced nation in the world? Enjoy.


And when asked what keeps the Moon in orbit around the Earth: "Well...I believe that God created the heavens and the Earth and the seas and all that is in them, and the means that He used to that to do that, well, I can't say".

And when asked why do we have seasons on our planet: "Well...I believe that God created the heavens and the Earth and the seas and all that is in them, and the means that He used to do that, well, I can't say".

And when asked why do the stars shine: "Well...I believe that God created the heavens and the Earth and the seas and all that is in them, and the means that He used to do that, well, I can't say".

Oh...wait a minute. Physicists have been looking for the Grand Unified Theory in all the wrong places. Congressman Mike Pence from Indiana has already found the answer.

It was amusing to watch Congressman Pence attempt to straddle the fence on the question of whether Intelligent Design should be taught alongside Evolution. His failed attempts to integrate religious dogma into a broader definition of science clearly show how far the theocrats are willing to distort reality to conform to their biblical world view.
