#813: Henry Jordan

Henry Jordan is a physician (general surgeoun), erstwhile (2006) candidate for Lieutenant Governor of South Carolina (R), and later co-chairman to the Presidential committee for Duncan Hunter’s presidential campaign in 2008. He is also a creationist. As Jordan puts it: “A bunch of amoebas didn’t get together and design all this,” which is, I suppose true, and illuminating with regard to how well Jordan understands what he is talking about. Drawing on his own experience as a physician, he elaborates: “We’d be operating on people … looking at their hearts, their liver and their lungs, I’d tell the techs, ‘Can you believe those little amoebas figured all this out?’” His main argument, however, is the extremely compelling argument by “really”: “I mean you’ve got to be stupid to believe in evolution, I mean really,” said Jordan.

Accordingly he believes the sin of pride and people’s desire to decide their own fate, rather than obey God, are why people believe in evolution.

During his Lieutenant Governor campaign he also pointed out that: “There are only two nations I know of that have been supernaturally blessed: Israel, because God chose them … and the other is the United States.” Yay, go US!

He also said “Screw the Buddhists and kill the Muslims. And put that in the minutes,” and lost the election.

Diagnosis: Deranged nitwit
