And you thought it was just global warming and the theory of evolution that were under siege from the enlightened politicians of the good ol' US of A? Ben Bridges, a Georgia State Representative, has fired a round at Darwin, reloaded, and taken a pop at that Jewish commie heretic Copernicus. A letter recently circulated under Bridges' name argues that the view that the earth orbits the sun is, like Darwinism, the product of a two thousand year old conspiracy:
"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,” reads the letter that went out under Bridges' name. “This scenario is derived concept-for-concept from Rabbinic writings in the mystic ‘holy book’ Kabbala dating back at least two millennia.”
Barnes' memo pointed fellow state legislators to the information at fixedearth.com which rails against “a mystic, anti-Christ ‘holy book’ of the Pharisee Sect of Judaism” and claims that “the earth is not rotating … nor is it going around the sun.” They've even caught on to the "centuries-old conspiracy" on the part of Jewish physicists to destroy Christianity.
Bridges doesn't appear to have written the letter, but he's not prepared to disagree with it:
Asked if he agreed with the Kaballah evolution conspiracy theory and the earth's lack of motion, he told the Atlanta Journal Constitution, “I agree with it more than I would the Big Bang Theory or the Darwin Theory. I am convinced that rather than risk teaching a lie why teach anything?”
Aren't you pleased that Bridges' party is fighting wars for secularism in the Middle East?
