It was only yesterday that we posted Oklahoma’s Josh Brecheen: Creationist Cretin. Now he’s back in the news again.
In the Durant Daily Democrat of Durant, Oklahoma we read Senator Brecheen says those who believe in evolution have been persuaded by an experiment plagued with falsehoods. It’s another article written by Josh himself.
He begins with some amazingly outdated and thoroughly debunked creationist arguments, starting with the Miller–Urey experiment. Josh fails to grasp that Miller-Urey is irrelevant to evolution, and besides that, it’s still respectable work. Next he rants about Java Man, a fossil now regarded as a specimen of Homo Erectus. Creationist websites don’t bother with Java Man any more. Josh must be using some old creationist tracts from the 1950s.
After that he really starts babbling. You’ll definitely want to read the original article, so we’ll just give you a few excerpts, with bold added by us:
Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel ceiling painting of God reaching out with a pointed finger is no less worthy of being placed alongside Darwin’s drawing of monkeys morphing into humans. In an attempt to explain our existence the teaching of evolution is ironically working against its own theory. For the blind followers, it is making monkeys out of them as they ignore the full gamut of scientific facts.
Darwin drew monkeys morphing into humans? Okay, Josh. Whatever you say. You da man! Let’s read on:
Let me speculate for a minute why the attempt to ignore relevant facts is ongoing despite what the scientific community has learned in the last 30 years. If I admit the possibility of a loving God then I entertain biblical teaching whereas [sic] I am responsible for immoral behavior. In a world that has no desire for accountability for right and wrong, this is unacceptable.
Right, Josh. That’s why biologists are so often found to be rapists, mass-murderers, and cannibals. No accountability — whoopee! We continue:
There are other consequences to this misinformation. If Darwin is right then I am free to be the strongest by eating all in my way (forget “love thy neighbor”).
Yes! Al Capone, Darwinist! One last excerpt:
In wrapping this up, I have introduced legislation requiring every publically funded Oklahoma school to teach the debate of creation vs. evolution using the known science, even that which conflicts with Darwin’s religion. The state of Texas has given their children access to this information and so should our Oklahoma schools.
People of Oklahoma, listen to your Curmudgeon: State Senator Josh Brecheen is completely insane. We don’t know how you elected him, but it’s not too late to recognize your error.
