John Shimkus Quotes

God said that the Earth would not be destroyed by a flood.

The congressman was a Biblical literalist. In this case he extended this method of knowing what is or is not potentially dangerous, to the absence of what the Bible says rather than a Biblical statement, If the Bible did not mention such a major event as global warming, it would not come to pass. Scientists are particularly distressed with this kind of analysis observing that there is nothing in the Bible abount nuclear energy, quantum mechanics, or black holes.
