Congressman calls evolution lie from 'pit of hell'

Oct 7, 2012 Full story: www.knoxnews.com 80

Georgia Rep. Paul Broun said in videotaped remarks that evolution, embryology and the Big Bang theory are "lies straight from the pit of hell" meant to convince people that they do not need a savior.

The Republican lawmaker made those comments during a speech Sept. 27 at a sportsman's banquet at Liberty Baptist Church in Hartwell. Broun, a medical doctor, is running for re-election in November unopposed by Democrats. Full Story

Perhaps there is a god.
Perhaps this god put life on this planet.
Perhaps god created this life for his own enjoyment.
Perhaps this god deceided that life on this planet would be better off to if it could adapt to the changing conditiions on this planet.
PErhaps god wanted life on this planet to change, and become better and stronger.
Perhaps all of god's life on this planet is equipped whith the ability to change from generation.
Perhaps this process, developed and created by god is perceived by us lowly sinful mortals as EVOLUTION.
That's what the Pope believes.

Me, I know God does not exist. And if I am wrong, I am sure he really is far too busy to give a flyin' crap about anything I do or have done.

You really are an idiot. Lourdes is a F.R.A.U.D...Again, I shall REPEAT, accommodate, and MODIFY for your special ed needs:

1. Check the remission rates of the diseases "healed" by Mary's magic tricks. Compare with medical studies.

2. How many goddamn amputees have been healed at Lourdes? Why do the fowl devotees hang crutches and not PROSTHETIC LIMBS in the filthy grotto? Fowl devotee=cluck, cluck.

Websites for your educational pleasure:

As to the moniker, "Kuntliquer", that is what the Virgin Mary goes by when she's enticing the gods to inseminate her. Rumor has it that before Yahweh sniffed her, Mary-Gone-Wild was impregnated by Zeus which makes her Yahweh's sloppy seconds.

If you can judge a political party by its lunatic fringe, the only thing Democrats have to fear is a mob of mouthbreathers waving torches.

Possibly. Or maybe, he's mad but north by northwest. When the wind is southerly, he knows a hawk from a handsaw. No doubt he's sane enough to know how insane the voters of his district are, and smart enough to know that the vote of an idiot counts as much as the vote of a genius, and that , especially in Georgia, the former vastly outnumber the latter. South of the Mason Dixon line, the bell curve shifts as abruptly to the left as the politics shift to the right.

Hey Chuckles you alcoholic crapped nappy.
Why is it up to God to heal amputees? If a human causes another human to lose a limb is it not up to the one who caused the amputation to rectify the lost limbs?

Who says it was caused by a human? Some people are born without certain limbs. Some people lose limbs due to disease or frostbite. Some people lose limbs in accidents.

Don't worry, we both know the reason why your god never heals people who are missing limbs: he doesn't exist.

Odumbo off the campaign trail today

Congressional hearing today on the killing of 4 Americans in Benghazi

obama has to explain why he did not send added protection to the Embassy when out Ambassador requested. And why did he lie about the incident

The US State Dept stated that there was no demonstration about the U Tube video that Susan Rice stated.
Libyan Government stated that it WAS a Terror attack.
Failure to protect American and lie about it is a reason impeachment

This could lead to Impeachment of Obama. I sure hope so. he will be gone and America can rebuild

Who says I'm not conservative, or a Conservative Party supporter?
And don't most of the regulars on this forum see themselves as socially liberal and fiscally conservative?

AmericaIsNotTheSame wants to see Pres Obama impeached.

I'm happy to vote for the Conservative Party led by a Christian (current PM), or the Labour Party led by an agnostic (Ed Miliband), or a LibDem led by an atheist (Nick Clegg). I simply judge them on their policies. voting shouldn't be personal and still less affected by a candidate's religion or lack of any.

From here it seems that USAmericans see every issue as a knock-down-fight. And then there is the extreme superstition of USAmericans today,(those going North by Northwest excepted.:-)

Amused and others have tried to explain to me why US politics are so polarised. People look to the USA to set standards, or as 'the model', but I think that the USA has could learn from elsewhere sometimes,(e.g. dump the anti-atheist sentiments)..

Conservatives in the UK are actually ... conservative. lol

In the US, conservatives are actually just liberals with god delusions, they want more government, bigger government, and more regulations, which is contradictory to the conservative label's definition.

I am a conservative lacking the god delusion, and I would never vote for Republican in this day and age, Democrats may not be perfect but they are the closest to the real conservative ideology than the others. There is nothing more messy, skewed, and shattered than US politics, you can't apply any of it to the rest of the world.

Funny, since most amputations are due to natural, or in your fantasy land "god," causes. But that is not the point. The point is that it would be indisputable evidence supporting your god, it would be easy to show the world, and would prove that prayer is more than a waste of time as well. But ... since you cannot deliver such an example within recorded history ... sucks to be you, worshiping a non-existent god and all.
