Evolution is a Jewish conspiracy to take over the world!!!

Oh, well that explains why there aren't more Jewish creationists:

The second most powerful member of the Texas House has circulated a Georgia lawmaker's call for a broad assault on teaching of evolution.


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.

Seriously, folks. Christianity has always seemed to harbor quite a bit of anti-semitism, but most of them today at least make a good show of solidarity with the rival religion, using terms like "Judeo-Christian values" and such.

Only in Texas. And Georgia.

The article has plenty more good stuff, including the requisite delusional rant about Jews controlling Hollywood and the media.

I think this is the bill, if you're enough of a glutton for punishment to want to read it.


  1. The Fixed Earth site is run by people who still think — as the dumber denizens of the Middle Ages did — that the Earth is a fixed point around which the rest of the entire universe, the "Firmament", revolves. There's not even a word for how stupid someone in the 21st century would have to be to hold such a view. It's even more depressing to think we have lawmakers in our country this intellectually bereft.

  2. I guess this must mean that the vast majority of biologists are Jews! I never realized that before, I wonder why that would be!? :)

  3. Something like this would never be posted in the Erie paper. It would simply be ignored for nonsense.

  4. PZ reports that our esteemed legislator has backpedaled on his support for this bill. Yay for public humiliation!
