Creationist to Lead Arizona Senate Education Panel

Sylvia Allen

An Arizona lawmaker who believes the earth is only 6,000 years old is the new chairwoman of the State Senate committee that oversees education-related legislation.

On Monday, December 21 Senate President Andy Biggs named Republican Senator Slyvia Allen, a Creationist of Snowflake, Arizona the new chairwoman of the Senate Education Committee. Allen will replace Kelli Ward, who resigned from the State Senate earlier this month to focus on a congressional run.

In 2009, a video clip went viral of Senator Allen expounding on the age of the earth. The video was taken at the June 25 meeting of the Senate Retirement and Rural Development Committee.

The senator went viral once again in 2013 with this facebook post:

Ok, I do not want to get into a debate about weather. However, I know what I see weekly up here on the flat where I live outside of Snowflake. The planes usually, three or four, fly a grid across the sky and leave long white trails streaming behind them. I have watched the chem-trails move out until the entire sky is covered with flimsy, thin cloud cover. It is not the regular exhaust coming from the plane it is something they are spraying. It is there in plain sight. What is it they are leaving behind that covers the sky?
Things are happening all around us that we see everyday and just don’t get what it is. I think we throw the “conspiracy theory” at people when we don’t understand or have the information they have so we try and explain it that way. Plus we just don’t want to believe that our government would do anything terrible to us. Well, just a few examples, the IRS attack on the Tea Party, Benghazi, wire taping, Fast and Furious just to name a few and we think that they would not manipulate our weather?

Just recently, in March, the Senator suggested mandatory church attendance would fix our country’s moral compass.

This just seems to be par for the course lately in American politics. Science-denier Ted Cruz was recently named Chair of the Subcommittee on Space, Science, and Competitiveness. And science-denier Marco Rubio chairs the Subcommittee on Oceans, Atmosphere, Fisheries and the Coast Guard which oversees the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Scary times indeed.
