Bill Nye slammed
Rep. Paul Broun, (R-Ga.), for his comments about evolution, saying that
Broun “is by any measure, unqualified to make decisions about science,
space, and technology.” Broun, a member of the House Science Committee, had said in a recent speech that he believes theories about evolution are “lies straight from the pit of Hell.”

also said “since the economic future of the United States depends on
our tradition of technological innovation, Representative Broun’s views
are not in the national interest.”

    I just have two minor points:
    Nye is discrediting someone for being religious, and then uses a religious reference to make his point (“lies straight from the pit of Hell.”). Ironic don’t you think?
    Secondly, there is only one engineer in congress, a representative from Texas. So, exactly what qualifies the rest of the members to be on the committee? Ans. They got enough votes to be elected.

    Actually, it was Rep. Broun who made the comment about "the pit of Hell".

    No one qualified would be stupid enough to get into the gutter of politics.

    Scientifically literate politicians are rare beasts. Politics and science generally require wholly different backgrounds and personalities, so perhaps that's not surprising... but it is unfortunate.
