Brownback Supporters Denounce Heliocentrism

PFW:7

Republican Presidential Candidate, Sam Brownback is a hardcore fundamentalist Christian. In being so, his base is extremely wacky. The Phayngula blog reports that there’s a lot of buzz regarding Brownback supporters’ blogs denouncing Heliocentrism, the idea that the Earth revolves around the sun.

From http://blogs4brownback.wordpress.com:

I support the Bible, and I don’t want my children learning about Heliocentrism in school. I think this doctrine encourages atheism, Darwinism, and anti-Americanism. I don’t want my tax dollars going to finance this kind of false science. It’s complete rot, and I hope that those of us who come to realize this can ultimately prevail against its propogation amongst OUR children with the money from OUR salaries.

I can’t wait to hear from the moonbats and the Darwinists and the other rubes on this one, though. Go on, witch doctors. Preach to me how the planet hurtles through the ether, Scriptural and physical evidence to the contrary! Your false doctrines will be cast down on the day when America rediscovers its Christian roots. That is a promise.

Do you think this is a blog dedicated to cleverly smearing Brownback through subtle satire, a la whitehouse.org and Landover Baptist Church? Could be. But taking a moment to read through blogs promoted on Brownback’s own campaign site, one can see that he readily will promote the throwing of scientific theories out the window in lieu of God:

Science only requires “Reasonable Belief” to put something in our textbooks as theory. Patterns within our observable universe point to design beyond chance. It would take a miracle from God himself to convince non-believers that patterns statistically beyond random chance that prove an “Intelligent Designer” to be behind the creation of gravity. Maybe this miracle, or series of miracles has already happened. Belief in a Higher Power taught to our school children will increase discipline in our public schools, thus increase our economy. Reasonable belief that gravity had to have come from an “Intelligent Designer” is just the kind of miracle that America needs.

Blogs supported on his site also reveal an ambition to promote an official religion of the state.

Also, don’t forget, Brownback was one of the three Republican Presidential Candidates who confessed they do not believe in evolution.

Here’s an interesting video about that.

    People that accept irrational delusions as if they represented a tangible reality suffer from schizophrenia or temporal lobe epilepsy. All religious beliefs accept irrational imaginary friends to be responsible for human existence and the existence of the universe. Since Christians accept delusions as if they were reality and since Brownback clearly follows the delusions of Christianity ( Christ-psychosis in my book ) as if it represented reality, the man ought to be exposed by neurologists for the schizophrenic type “reasoning” he is infected with and be committed. Brownback reasoning is no different those of some folks I know affected by mild forms of schizophrenia.

    I believe it is the responsibility of the Neurological Association of America to expose these Christ-psychosis nuts in control of the USA for the demented sick folks they truly
    are. Neurologists must point out to the world that the Brain creates thought and the mind and that the disturbed delusion’s filled thinking that affects a religious belief infected brain is not much different to the one of a person affected by mild forms of schizophrenia. Brownback must submit to an MR,I then if he insists in accepting an invisible friend as real he must be committed along others suffering from the same delusions.

    Where are the neurologists when we need them?

    These fundamentalists are utterly insane. I…don’t even know what to say. This is ignorance at its finest.
