GOP candidate claims fossil record proves humans lived with dinosaurs

GOP candidate claims fossil record proves humans lived with dinosaurs July 24, 2014

Minnesota House of Representatives candidate Bob Frey wants public schools to teach students that humans and dinosaurs lived together.

Frey, a Michele Bachmann ally, testified before the Minnesota Senate Education Committee, speaking against the inclusion of the theory of evolution in proposed state science education standards. The following is an excerpt from that testimony:

… They like to say that humans probably evolved from bacteria that lived more than four billion years ago, but that’s not what we find in the fossil record.

There’s this 16-foot tall giant was found with numerous others around the world [Frey placed a large plastic femur on the table before he started testifying].

Dinosaurs have always lived with man. Is the rock wrong or is the theory wrong? I suggest to you that the theory is wrong.

Dinosaurs have always lived with man. And here’s a plesiosaur that washed up on the beach on Nova Scotia in 2002. This is a juvenile that also washed up on the beach in Lake Erie.

In addition, Bluestem Prairie reports that Frey used to run a group called “Creation Science Seminars,” which claimed that teaching Creationism would reduce the rate of violence while asserting that teaching the theory of evolution caused violence.

Claiming that the fossil record proves humans lived with dinosaurs is not the only questionable assertion the Republican has made. Raw Story reports that Frey continues tro make the ludicrous assertion that “AIDS was caused by sperm enzymes entering the anus of another male.”

Frey explains his bizarre theory:

When you have egg and sperm that meet in conception, there’s an enzyme in the front that burns through the egg. The enzyme burns through so the DNA can enter the egg.

But Frey said that it was a different story when the “sperm is deposited anally” because “it’s the enzyme that causes the immune system to fail.”

“That’s why the term is AIDS – acquired immunodeficiency syndrome,” he opined.

Earlier this year, Frey distributed a DVD that claimed an anti-bully bill was part of a plot to infect the general population with AIDS through sodomy.

The only thing more disturbing than Frey’s fallacious claims is the fact that this deeply confused man may be elected to serve in the Minnesota House of Representatives.

The stupid. It burns.
