Ex-Press Aide for NASA Offers Defense
This guy George Deutsch is really something. He went from an undergraduate at Texas A&M to a worker on the Bush re-election campaign to a spokesman for NASA without completing his undergrad degree or, seemingly, knowing anything about science. He tried to use his position to prevent NASA from educating people about the Big Bang, which runs contrary to his religious beliefs. Now he has offered a defense of his actions.
My favorite part of this is his account of a correspondence he had with a NASA Web designer. "We are both Christians, and I was sharing with him my personal opinions on the Big Bang theory versus intelligent design," he said. What I find fascinating is that this guy is a proponent of intelligent design, and according to him, intelligent design somehow disproves the Big Bang. Intelligent design must be one hell of a theory if it's able to disprove both evolution and the Big Bang, two scientific theories that have nothing to do with each other.
