Dr. Philip Clayton, a Christian theologian and philosopher from Claremont Graduate University who specializes in the intersection of religion and science, has recorded a reply to Rep. Shimkus’ (Ill.) use of the Bible in a House hearing on global warming. Shimkus basically offered a couple of prooftexts to justify his irresponsible political position, followed by ludicrous scientific claims, and presented them as if his statements were the infallible word of God instead of an out-of-context interpretation of scripture. I applaud Dr. Clayton’s respectful tenor given the level of lamitude of arguments from an elected official.
