Georgia Legislator: Evolution a Jewish Conspiracy

People For The American Way reports:

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.”

JTA adds:

The memo has been tied to the offices of conservative Republican lawmakers who reject evolution. It was written by Marshall Hall, who ran an election campaign for Georgia State Rep. Ben Bridges. Warren Chisum, a powerful lawmaker in the Texas state house, has distributed the memo. On his Web site,, Hall describes Albert Einstein as a kabbalist, and says the ancient Jewish mystical discipline is “anti-bible” and “anti-Christ.”
The Anti-Defamation League on Thursday asked Bridges to repudiate the memo’s contents. Bridges has distanced himself from the memo, which Hall originally distributed in Bridges’ name.

  1. Thank you, I had been wanting to see the original.
    So let me get this straight – because the Zohar has a theory of creation that parallels the Big Bang, natural selection is somehow theistic?

  2. Nice, lets hear for the leaders of the free world, tolerance and the separation of church and state.
    Seriously, can this even be for real?
    I really don’t know enough about the people involved but i find it hard to believe.
    Be Well

  3. “the Pharisee religion?”
    so, does this mean that conservative evangelicals accept the orthodox dating of the zohar to the period and authorship of the rashbi and his cirlce?

  4. So, people knew about evolution two thousand years ago?? So they must have known about cellular biology, genes, chromosomes, DNA, RNA, the division of life into five kingdoms (and why), mutations, natural selection. They’d been to the Galapagos Islands and Madagascar, been on fossil digs all over the world, already had the kinds of fossils we’ve found in the past couple of centuries, including those of hominids; they had present-day knowldge of physics, geology, and chemistry, not to mention scientific journals, peer review, undergraduate and graduate studies in the sciences; and they had laboratories as modern as today’s for research.
    So, we should have had moon colonies by 200 AD, and been mining the asteroids in 300 AD. Or is space exploration just another Jewish plot?
    I wonder what Jews must think when they see right-wing Christians wallowing in their own willful ignorance.
