During an episode of his Pass the Salt webcast, Christian conspiracy theorist Dave Daubenmire called on the government to abandon the study of “fake science” of evolution and focus on proving the existence of God.
“Evolution is fake science, it is not true,” Daubenmire said. “Do you know how much government money goes into science research? If you want to get a government grant, you have to make sure that the research that you do is going to support the positions of the government.”
“I would like to see the government do this,” he continued, “Why doesn’t the government fund research into whether or not there is really a God? Wouldn’t that be good? Let’s dump a lot of money — rather than dumping all this [money into research] proving there isn’t a God, let’s fund some scientists to do some research to see if there is a God.”
