Evolution a Kabbalist Plot?
The Dallas Morning News reported today that the second ranking member of the Texas legislature, Warren Chisum, circulated a memorandum from Georgia State Rep. Ben Bridges calling for the end of teaching evolution in the schools. Bridges apparently believes that evolution is a Kabbalist plot. Really. According to the newspaper,
"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 evolutionin Georgia schools for several years.
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."
