Rep. Broun: Evolution and Big Bang theory are 'lies straight from the pit of hell'

"And it's lies to try to keep me and all the folks who are taught that from understanding that they need a savior."

Broun also said he believes there is evidence to back up the story in the Bible that God created the Earth relatively recently.

"You see, there are a lot of scientific data that I found out as a scientist that actually show that this is really a young Earth," he said. "I don't believe that the Earth is but about 9,000 years old. I believe that it was created in six days as we know them. That's what the Bible says."

Broun also said he sees the bible as a "handbook" that tells people how to live, as well as how members of Congress should act and vote.
