Apparently not content to let Rep. Steve Davis be the most wacked out member of the Georgia General Assembly this week, State Rep. Ben Bridges apparently has been circulating a memo, which found its way into the hands of the Texas Legislature this week, arguing that teaching evolution in schools “amounts to indoctrinating students in an ancient Jewish sect’s beliefs.”
Here is an excerpt from Rep. Bridges memo in the Dallas Morning News:
“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.”
