Biblical war on science: EPA chief Scott Pruitt uses the Bible to justify new rule preventing university scientists from serving on key advisory boards.
Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt is using the Bible’s Book of Joshua to prevent “hundreds of expert scientists working in environmental and health fields at universities from serving on the (agency’s advisory) boards”
BuzzFeed News reports:
Referencing the Book of Joshua, EPA head Scott Pruitt announced sweeping changes to the agency’s science advisory boards, opening the door to more input from the business world.
The Hill reports:
Pruitt cited a Bible verse from the book of Joshua, in which Joshua led the people of Israel to the promised land but asked them to choose between worshipping God or their “false gods.”
“Choose this day whom you will serve,” Pruitt said, quoting Joshua.
