ATHENS, Georgia – A Republican lawmaker 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.

Georgia Rep. Paul Broun 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.

“God’s word is true,” Broun said, according to a video posted on the church’s website. “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. And it’s lies to try to keep me and all the folks who are taught that from understanding that they need a savior.”

Broun also said that he believes the Earth is about 9,000 years old and that it was made in six days. Those beliefs are held by fundamentalist Christians who believe the creation accounts in the Bible are literally true.

Broun spokeswoman Meredith Griffanti told the Athens Banner-Herald that Broun was recorded speaking off-the-record to a church group about his religious beliefs. He sits on the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology.

    The more intelligent humans get the stupider they are! Saying that evolution, embryology, and “the big bang theory” never happened is like hitting you on the head with a rock and then saying there was no rock. Much of science has been proven where nothing in the bible has. I ask, “If Jesus was a carpenter, where is a piece of furniture that he made?” Religion is nothing more than beliefs that have been passed down through generations, and the story has change or been altered along the way, that does not make it real or true. What is worse is when politicians or other people of authority force their beliefs on others, especially through intimidation. It’s each individuals right to choose what they believe.
