No, not the tech blog, but a story that I couldn’t make up if I tried. Apparently a legislator in Georgia has been accused of sending a memo saying that evolution is actually part of a Jewish conspiracy.
There is a lot of denial and ‘he said/she said’ going on (involving at least 2 state representatives), but there clearly was a memo, and it clearly said that the Big Bang and evilution were offshoots of Kaballah.
Even in the denials by Rep. Bridges, though, there’s some shocking stuff:
“Bridges acknowledged that he talked to Hall about filing legislation this year that would end the teaching of evolution in Georgiaâ€™s public schools. Bridges said the views in the memo belong to Hall, though Bridges said he doesnâ€™t necessarily disagree with them.
â€œI agree with it more than I would the Big Bang Theory or the Darwin Theory,â€ Bridges said. â€œI am convinced that rather than risk teaching a lie why teach anything?â€
The “Hall” mentioned in that quote is the author of the memo, and the head of a group–again, not making this up–that believes in a fixed earth. (And has coined the great phrase “big bangism”.)
“Indisputable evidence â€” long hidden but now available to everyone â€” 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.”
