Wow, just...wow...

It looks like Ben Bridges is not the only powerful legislator convinced that the Jews are behind the whole evolution 'scam.'

Meet Warren Chisum (R), the second most powerful member of the Texas House.
House Appropriations Committee Chairman Warren Chisum, R-Pampa, used House operations Tuesday to deliver a memo from Georgia state Rep. Ben Bridges.

The memo assails what it calls "the evolution monopoly in the schools."

Mr. Bridges' memo claims that teaching evolution amounts to indoctrinating students in an ancient Jewish sect's beliefs.

"Indisputable evidence – long hidden but now available to everyone – demonstrates conclusively that so-called 'secular evolution science' is the Big Bang, 15-billion-year, alternate 'creation scenario' of the Pharisee Religion," writes Mr. Bridges, a Republican from Cleveland, Ga. He has argued against teaching of evolution in Georgia schools for several years.

He then refers to a Web site, www.fixedearth.com, that contains a model bill for state Legislatures to pass to attack instruction on evolution as an unconstitutional establishment of religion.

Mr. Bridges also supplies a link to a document that describes scientists Carl Sagan and Albert Einstein as "Kabbalists" and laments "Hollywood's unrelenting role in flooding the movie theaters with explicit or implicit endorsement of evolutionism."

Mr. Chisum said he knows Mr. Bridges from their joint service on a committee of the National Conference of State Legislatures.


If memory serves, this is not the first movement against 'Jewish Science'...

It never ceases to amaze me how fundamentalists keep holding onto the "science as religion" argument.

The fundamental difference between science and religion is that science can admit when it's wrong, and change to match the facts.

Facts are just an inconvenience to be explained away to fundamentalists. If reality conflicts with belief, then reality is wrong.

And I really don't have a problem with that kind of ignorance. It's only when they decide to pass laws or adjust education with the warped reality that I have a serious problem.

Odd... I would have classed the Genesis creation story as the ancient Jewish version....
