GOP House candidate Bob Frey believes dinosaurs lived with humans

Frey: "Dinosaurs have always lived with man."
Last week, we told you about GOP House candidate Bob Frey's discredited view regarding the link between gay sex and AIDS. Turns out there's more wacky theories where that came from.

The Bluestem Prairie blog unearthed a January 2004 audio clip of Frey claiming that "dinosaurs have always lived with man" during a hearing before the Minnesota Senate Education Committee. To bolster his claim, Frey toted around a gigantic replica of what he claimed was a femur bone from a 16-foot-tall human.

Here's a screengrab of Frey and his fake bone:

And here's audio of Frey's testimony, followed by a partial transcript:



... 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.
Frey is so anti-evolution, he even disavows any form of "intelligent design" that ascribes explanatory power to modern science's best theory about how humans got here and where we came from. Another Bluestem Prairie post cites a news report which characterizes Frey's views about intelligent design as follows: "Frey said this theory, referred to as 'intelligent design,' asserts the idea that God created the world and creatures evolved. Frey said he doesn't subscribe to the theory, and he urges Christians to fight to remove evolution from curriculums."

Frey has also linked the teaching of evolution with "increasing teenage sexual activity and a decrease in college-entrance exam scores" and "rising societal violence," according to reports dredged up by Bluestem Prairie.

Frey's views stem from a Genesis passage that says, "There were giants in the earth in those days." But unsurprisingly, the Bible isn't as good at science at figuring these things out.

To be fair, he thought the Flinstones was a documentary.

"Another Bluestem Prairie post cities a news report which characterizes Frey's views about intelligent design as follows[...]"

I think you meant "cites". Have a good fucking day. For reals.

DONT VOTE FOR SOME ARMY DUMMY NAMED DAVE THOMAS

Once again the City Pages proves it is not a news organization whose purpose is to educate the public, but instead nothing more than a liberal circle jerk.  Stop paying attention to losers and focus on real candidates with real policy proposals that could change this nation for the better- like Dave Thomas in the 4th CD.

What I find interesting is how most people on the left and quite a few on the right deny the existence of human races. Not only that, but they deny that there are any differences between races, especially in intelligence. All disparities between whites and non-whites, in which whites have the advantage, are caused by white racism and bigotry. As result, minorities are taught to hate whites and whites are taught to hate themselves. Even worse, whites are expected to surrender their incomes, their neighborhoods, their countries, their women, and to call it diversity and to think it is a good thing. I believe that this unscientific belief in the equality of all people is far more destructive than believing man and dinosaur walked the earth at the same time. Bob Frey opposes evolution because it is used - quite effectively - as an argument to invalidate all forms of traditional morality, values, and religion and to embrace nihilism. And he is right. If our existence is a meaningless coincidence, then who cares what anyone believes? When our consciousness fades out of existence that's it. Isn't it?

If you vote for one Republican you are voting to empower people like Bob Frey.   He isn't the first religious nut.   The most powerful and famous Republican in Minnesota is Michele Bachmann.   She's a religious nut just like this guy.   The last time the GOP was in charge they spent their time trying to pass bigoted laws against gay people.   They haven't changed.  Vote DFL.    Minnesota is leading the way on issues like gay marriage, green energy, and the economy.   Don't elect a bunch of dumb bastards who think The Flintstones was a documentary.

@senatortombstone are you asserting biological differences in homeo-sapiens?


why dont you do more reading and then you can have more concise ideas to post here...based on your comment i would label you a nazi

senatortombstone

Obviously there are biological differences between the races, those biological differences are what make different races. I fail to see how acknowledging that makes me a nazi, any more than acknowledging the differences between chihuahuas and cocker spaniels does.

@senatortombstone homo-sapiens all have the same shit inside. their bodies are the same. environmental and regional differences change the appearance in homo-sapiens. just like animals show different traits in different environments


so once again i say you are a nazi, trying to label and exact differences in the look of people

@digitalprotocol @senatortombstone I wouldn't go so far as to say "Nazi", because...well, yeah.  But to suggest biological differences in Homo sapiens is pretty ignorant.  That's physical anthro 101.  Race is a myth.
