Guy Who Says Evolution is “Anti-American” Donates Dinosaur Skeleton to Creation Museum

Michael Peroutka believes the idea of evolution is anti-American.

He believes it because the Declaration of Independence cites a “Creator.” And because he’s a Young Earth Creationist who doesn’t care about the facts.

Jones III is a George-W-Bushappointed, Rick-Santorumapproved Republican who may be best known to this site’s readers as the judge who pretty much single-handedly destroyed the Intelligent Design movement in 2005 with his decision in Kitzmiller v. Dover.

Since the Religious Right is undoubtedly going to criticize him as some activist judge with a liberal agenda, it’s worth taking a look at some of the statements he’s made to show that those labels don’t apply to him at all.
