Paranoia

You aren’t paranoid if they really are out to get you.

Ivey received this email invitation to join a conspiracy against Dr. Paul Broun for daring to speak out against the theory of evolution, and forwarded it to us.

Dear Ivey,

Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA) has publically [sic] and vocally demonstrated his rejection of even the most basic tenets of scientific progress and critical thought.

Evolution, embryology and the Big Bang theory are some of the major underpinnings of modern science. Broun condemns them as “lies straight from the pit of hell… to try to keep me and all the folks who were taught that from understanding that they need a savior.”

This man has no right to sit on the House Science, Space and Technology Committee, and his very presence there discredits the Committee and its purpose.

We’re calling on Ralph Hall, the Committee Chairman, to remove Rep. Broun from the committee immediately. Join the call: sign our petition now!

PETITION TO RALPH HALL: Rep. Paul Broun has no place on a committee dedicated to scientific progress and critical thought, as his recent comments and past actions have proved. Please, remove Rep. Broun from the House Science, Space and Technology Committee immediately.

Dr. Broun is a medical doctor. As such, he is well aware that embryology is based upon Ernst Haeckel’s false Biogenetic Law (“Ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny”), in which Haeckel used faked drawings purporting to show that human embryos repeat their evolutionary history as they develop. Evolutionists admitted this fraud 20 years ago. 1 It is certainly not one “of the major underpinnings of modern science.”

As a physician, Dr. Broun knows how complex biological systems are, and has good reason to doubt that they all evolved by accident. He knows the biogenetic law is bogus. Dr. Broun is much more qualified to sit on the House Science, Space and Technology Committee than someone who stubbornly believes in evolution despite all the scientific evidence against evolution. (And Dr. Broun probably knows how to spell “publicly,” unlike the writer of the email petition. )

Bill Nye

What prompted the illiterate petitioner to call for Dr. Broun’s removal? We don’t know; but the petition smacks of Bill Nye’s criticism of Dr. Broun’s September 27, 2012 speech at the Liberty Baptist Church Sportsman's Banquet. 2 We suspect his misplaced regard for Bill Nye might have had something to do with it.

Bill Nye is an outspoken liberal who uses pseudo-science to advance his political agenda. At the time the first draft of this column was written (November 2, 2012), Wikipedia had this banner at the top of their entry on Bill Nye:

This page is currently protected from editing until November 10, 2012 or until disputes have been resolved. 3

Wikipedia doesn’t say what the disputes are, but we presume it regards his recent “Big Think” anti-creation video. 4 Is it not a coincidence that the Wikipedia page (which contains no criticism of his liberal political views) is protected from editing until after the election by the left-leaning Wikipedia? No! To think so would be paranoid!

[P.S. When we were writing a later draft of this column (on November 12), after the election, we went back to the Wikipedia article on Bill Nye to see if the disputes had been resolved. The banner was gone, and there was no mention of “Big Think” or his criticism of Dr. Broun. Of course, there is no telling what Wikipedia will say about Bill Nye or Dr. Broun when you read this. ]
