Ben Bridges

Okay, this next guy makes Virgil Goode seem perfectly normal. I was reading Talking Points Memo this morning and came across this bit from Josh Marshall:
It's times like these you've just got to miss that dear lady Molly Ivins.

Meet our new friend, Georgia State House Rep. Ben Bridges (R), chairman of the retirement committee in the state house.

Bridges is now in a bit of trouble for spilling the beans about evolution being the product of a Pharisee Jew conspiracy to bamboozle normal Americans and destroy Christianity.

“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,” reads the letter that went out under Bridges' name. “This scenario is derived concept-for-concept from Rabbinic writings in the mystic ‘holy book’ Kabbala dating back at least two millennia.”

Yep, "secular evolution science" is actually a vast Jewish conspiracy, deriving from the Kabbala, says the memo. It refers to a website Fixed Earth, which claims to offer conclusive scientific proof that the Earth is the center of the universe (warning, severe html abuse found at Fixed Earth). From the couple of dumbstruck minutes I spent looking at the site, his claims seem to be based entirely on an inability to understand how time lapse photography works. Perhaps I didn't dedicate enough time to truly understanding how superstring, evolution and the Copernican view are all just facets of the ancient Kabbala. Anyway, the ADL is on the case.
