Evolution and Big Bang are lies from hell?

Reading the paper today I learnt about this video:

This is Paul Broun who sits on the US House of Representatives Committee on Science, Space, and Technology. 

Is it just me that finds this really scary? I’m starting to view some religions as huge cults that nobody seems to mind. I have been known to say that catholic schools have some benefits and that religion helps some people when nothing else can. I still believe these things but I cannot believe that people are still passing off science as “lies from the pits of hell”. There is so much evidence that the world was not created in 6 days and if I did fancy believing in something that there was no evidence for I would definitely prefer the flying spaghetti monster to god.

That’s it, the end of my rant. Thank you for reading!
