Creationist Congress: Broun, Akin & 'Early Earth' 6,000 Years Ago (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

As 2012 comes to a close, I'd like to take a moment to bid farewell to a few congressmen who were voted out of office this year, hopefully for their antiscience views. But let's not get too excited. There are still many, many politicians left in office who deny global climate change, believe in magical thinking, and actually claim that Earth was created by God 6,000 years ago.

So I want to take you all the way back to "early Earth" and show you what was really happening in 4,000 BCE.

I know you're going to have a lot to say after you watch this video. I sure had a lot to say when I wrote it. Let me know your thoughts by leaving a comment at the bottom of the page. Come on, talk nerdy to me!
