Powerful Texas state Rep. Warren Chisum (R), an advocate of religious-right causes such as banning adoption by gay couples and amending the state constitution to ban same-sex marriage, has passed along a “memo” from a kindred spirit in the Georgia House claiming that “teaching evolution amounts to indoctrinating students in an ancient Jewish sect’s beliefs,” reports 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 …
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.”
Bridges, the sponsor of bills to undermine the teaching of evolution in Georgia, referred Texas lawmakers to a web site dedicated to opposing both the theory of evolution and that the earth revolves around the sun. According to this web site, which offers state legislators Bridges’s anti-evolution bill as model legislation,
The Bible and all real evidence confirms that this is precisely what He did, and indeed:
The Earth is not rotating…nor is it going around the sun. …
Today’s cosmology fulfills an anti-Bible religious plan disguised as “science”.
The whole scheme from Copernicanism to Big Bangism is a factless lie. Those lies have planted the Truth-killing virus of evolutionism in every aspect of man’s “knowledge” about the Universe, the Earth, and Himself.
Although Chisum said he does not agree totally with Bridges’s views, he appeared amenable to Bridges’s anti-evolution legislation, saying, “You ought to teach creation as well as the fact of evolution.”
