UPDATE: HERE IS A COPY OF THE MEMO FROM BEN BRIDGES provided by SciGuy

Rep. Ben Bridges, a Republican from Georgia, is under attack for a memo distributed under his name calling for a ban on evolution in public schools. What’s interesting is that the memo called evolution a religious deception stemming from an ancient Jewish sect. Furthermore the memo states that evolution is “a deception that is causing incalculable harm to every student and every truth-loving citizen.”

“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. This scenario is derived concept-for-concept from Rabbinic writings in the mystic ‘holy book’ Kabbala dating back at least two millennia.”

Bridges denies having written the memo, but a constituent Marshall Hall says that he wrote it with Bridges’ approval. Hall is the president of the Georgia-based Fair Education Foundation; an organization that seeks to show evolution is a myth. His wife Bonnie has served as Bridges’ campaign manager since 1996.

Bridges admitted to talking with Hall about legislation that would ban evolution in Georgia classrooms. Bridges claims that the memo reflects Halls views, but said he doesn’t necessarily disagree with them. He added:

“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?”

The memo was sent to lawmakers in Texas, California, New York, Illinois, Pennsylvania, and Ohio.

It is important to note that the memo directs readers to this site: www.fixedearth.com. What’s so special about that site? Well it claims that the Earth doesn’t rotate, nor does it go around the Sun either.
