South Carolina State HouseCOLUMBIA, S.C. – Despite criticism from evolutionists, a proposed bill in South Carolina has been amended to include a reference to the biblical creation account. House Bill 4482 (HB4482) is a short bill which would officially designate the Columbian Mammoth as South Carolina’s state fossil. Lawmakers say the remains of hundreds of mammoths have been unearthed across South Carolina, so they want to commemorate the animal’s heritage in their state. Kevin Bryant, a state senator from Anderson, initially proposed to insert three verses from the King James Bible—Genesis 1:24-25 and Genesis 1:31—into HB4482, saying he wanted “to recognize the creator” in the bill. “And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so,” the Genesis 1:24-25 passage states. “And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.” “And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good,” says Genesis 1:31. “And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.” More
