As Bluestem noted in Sunday's post,Frey had a bone to pick with Cheri Pierson Yecke, Robert "Bob" Frey testified before the Minnesota Senate Education Committee on January 23, 2004, (part 1 of the audio tape) speaking against the proposed state science education standards' inclusion of the theory of evolution.
In the excerpt above, pulled from his full testimony, Frey says:
. . .they likes to say that humans probably evolved from bacteria that lived more than four billion years ago, but that's not what we find in the fossil record.
There's this 16-foot tall giant was found with numerous others around the world [Frey had placed a large plastic femur on the table before he started tesfying].
Dinosaurs have always lived with man. Is the rock wrong or is the theory wrong? I suggest to you that the theory is wrong.
Dinosaurs have always lived with man. And here's a plesiosaur that washed up on the beach on Nove Scotia in 2002. This is a juvenile that also washed up on the beach in Lake Erie.
Professor Krisman [sp?} passed on his letter of recommendation attached to the science minority report addressing that biology should be included in the science standards and benchmarks. I suggest doing the same types of revisions for other disciplines in the science standards as well--geology, cosmology, etc.
Reading from the proposed standards from the known fraud evolutionary theory worldviews being scientific fact and teaching real science based upon what can be observed and tested because there's so much good science that can be taught as students develop their worldview and behavior.
I also have a handout that I'd like the committee to have--
Senator Steve Kelley offers to have a staffer get the handout, then asks if there are any questions; Senaor Leroy Stumpf has one. The tape continues:
Stumpf: Mr. Chairman, Now is that --ah--bone, is that actually a real one?
Frey: This is a replica of a real one, the entire skeleton has been found. Numerous of them have found up in Wisconsin, Texas, Egypt, Turkey, around the world. The Bible says "there were giants in the land in those days," in the early days. This shows that things are winding down, not winding up.
Kelley: Thanks very--
Frey: I have about 25 hours of presentation material with lots of slides of dinosaurs, lots of slides of this sort of thing, and also the consequences of teaching known fraud and everything to society.
Kelley: Thanks very much Mr. Frey .. .
Does Frey know Allen Quist? Why yes: Quist and former Big Lake legislator Mark Olson spoke in Glencoe about the menace of "the federal curriculum" in 2003 to Citizens for Education Excellence, a group Frey and now state representative Glenn Gruenhagen (R-Glencoe).
Republicans in the district must choose between Frey and Jim Nash, the conservative and rational mayor of Waconia in the August 12, 2014 primary. The winner will face DFler Matt Gieseke in November's general election.
The open seat is a consequence of Ernie Leidiger's retirement; Leidiger is perhaps best known nationally for inviting toxic metal preacher Bradlee Dean to serve as guest chaplain in the Minnesota House. Dean's prayer, which questioned President Obama's faith, was redacted from the record.
We're working on another Frey story that doesn't, so far as we know, involve social issues. Stay tuned.
