At the website Iowa Caucuses, maintained by the DesMoinesRegister, we found this article: Michele Bachmann reflects on early life in Iowa, takes education questions in Cedar Falls. It confirms what we’ve written about this crazy woman before (see Michele Bachmann in New Orleans: Insanity!). We’ll skip everything in today’s article but the creationism, and the bold font was added by us:
Among the issues that came up – and which Bachmann said her administration would push to the local level – were K-12 programming and funding, early childhood education, higher-education funding, arts and music education and decisions over teaching evolution and so-called “intelligent design” theories on the origin of life.
Go, Michelle, go! The madness continues:
Bachmann’s position on intelligent design was tested in a series of questions from the audience.
While emphasizing that she didn’t have a platform position on the issue – since she believed it wasn’t something the federal government and president should be involved in – Bachmann said her religious beliefs informed her scientific views and that sufficient questions have been raised concerning evolution to justify alternative theories to be discussed in science classes.
Religion prevails over science. Brilliant! The woman is probably also a flat-earther. Let’s read on:
“I do believe that God created the earth and I believe that there are issues that need to be addressed – the Second Law of Thermodynamics, the issue of irreducible complexity, the dearth of fossil record,” she said. “Those are all very real issues that should be addressed in science classes.”
Classic idiocy! Absolutely classic. The woman is insane! Here’s the last of it:
Not allowing ideas like intelligent design to be discussed in science classes amounted to government censorship, she said. “I think the one thing we do not want to have is censorship by government,” she said. “Government shouldn’t be dictating what information goes on the table.”
There’s a lot we could say, but why bother? It’s obvious that Michele Bachmann is one of the most ignorant humans alive.
