Enough is enough. Tell the House leadership to keep ignoramuses off the Science Committee
Todd Akin’s at it again. This time, he’s declaring that evolution is not “a matter of science”:
‘I’ve taken a look at both sides of the thing and it seems to me that evolution takes a tremendous amount of faith,’ Rep. Todd Akin said in audio of the event obtained by Think Progress. ‘To have all of the sudden all the different things that have to be lined up to create something as sophisticated as life, it takes a lot of faith.’
Todd Akin, you may recall, is a member of the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology. If you think that’s as much of a disgrace as I do, please sign this petition to Speaker Boehner and Minority Leader Pelosi: House Leaders: Establish knowledge standards for members of the Committee on Science, Space, and Technology.
