Bachmann Passes On Creationist Myths

Michele Bachmann was asked about teaching intelligent design in public school science classrooms in Iowa and, unsurprisingly, she’s all for it. But she even mixed in a little old-school anti-evolution stupidity.

During a question-and-answer session at the University of Northern Iowa Wednesday, Bachmann was asked if intelligent design should be taught as science in public schools.

“I think that all science should be on the table,” the candidate explained. “I think the one thing we do not want to have is censorship by government.”

“I do believe that God created the Earth,” she continued. “And I believe there are issues that need to be addressed — the Second Law of Thermodynamics, the issue of irreducible complexity, the dearth of fossil record.”

The second law of thermodynamics? Seriously? Even most YECs don’t use that one anymore. And irreducible complexity was disproved even by the man who invented the phrase during the Dover trial. And the fossil record, about which Bachmann undoubtedly knows absolutely nothing, is explained very well by evolution.

"An odd spin on the 'No win-No fee' idea."
