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.
“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.”
The congressman has definite views about God and His role, just as a Republican congressman he has the agenda of his party. He shall strive diligently as true Republican for the unfair distribution of wealth where the poor have none to blame but themselves that they remain poor. On the other hand the rich holds all the initiative to corner the wealth of nation for their own will and pleasure. Perhaps he also implies God has set him to keep that inequality?

Why should we need to be certain God exists or that God is dead?

What are the credentials of humans to speak of a divine Being, God, after-life or creation time or Big Bang?
We are holding a middle state unable to trace the largest circle except that one can imagine ;for that matter can we see the inside of an atom with our naked eye? Recently scientists were speaking of theory of something where the energy was borrowed instead of the conventional wisdom that energy is neither created nor destroyed. There is also a shift in our concept of the Big Bang that our universe was ‘seeded’ by dark matter to give it a beginning of sorts. Science shall indeed make great strides.Consequently our ideas also shall shift.
There would not be scientific enquiry had not man felt some inner compulsion to know the truth. Look at our physical being. We are subject to wear and tear of age and dissolution at death. It is the truth. This is what law of entropy speaks and it marks specific time. But at our atomic level there is no dissolution! Would that mean we are timeless at one end of of our being?Can one be true and the other a lie?
We are foolish to think we can think our way out since thinking of one idea can only be limited by another idea and so on. Creation of the earth by God, the concept of Big Bang followed by something else. It could go on. The wisest of us who think intellect is all there is to it are as misguided as those who think their body is above all.
As humans let us not think of writing a thesis when we are in the nursery here on earth. Because of circumstances of my birth and upbringing I see the key that holds my moral universe as God. My keen interest in history, literature arts and science do not in any manner cloud or diminish my faith. Since as a morally responsible person it is the oxygen so my art, architecture( I am an architect by profession), stories, writings all permeated by moral sense. The bottom line is that I am an individual. Also morally responsible.
I consider these controversies of God as merely fool’s business to avoid from doing what is needful.
Le us show ourselves as a good human being, as father, mother daughter,son,citizen rather than wasting our lives in useless arguments.
Let us instead get back to paying our mortgages and looking what shall we set on the dinner table for the day.
