Not that he's backing away from them, even as the campaign for Energy and Commerce chair becomes one of the most bitterly contested among Republicans.

"I do believe in the Bible as the final word of God," Shimkus told Politico after announcing his candidacy. "And I do believe that God said the Earth would not be destroyed by a flood."

Shimkus notes that he believes the climate is changing, and toward the warmer side. But he questions whether spending money to mitigate its effects is wise, especially given God's guarantee that floods would not destroy the earth before Jesus returns.

Let's see, fake outrage on several threads and none of them address the real reason for the myth busters. The above is why.

Please note the Epic of Gilgamesh is where the flood story originates, although many cultures have a flood story. This is the one that was copied simply because of location.

In no way, shape or form should this person have anything to do with any Energy chair.

Myth busting should remain a primary objective.

This is EXACTLY why I get so fired up and why I am so vocally anti-religious. I don't care what silly myths people believe privately but when they take these idiotic beliefs and try to make them public policy we have a big problem.

I don't know too many people that care what someone believes personally. I think the fake outrage is busy work for the people.

I don't expect anyone else to live by my personal religious beliefs....but the end time major global warming the Bible is referring to has nothing to do with the previous flood and won't be stopped with any particular energy policy.
