..and the earth is NOT moving

And this is all true according to Texas

A leader of the Texas House of Representatives apologized Friday for circulating an appeal to ban the teaching of evolution as derived from “Rabbinic writings” and other Jewish texts.

“I had no intention to offend anyone,” said the lawmaker, Warren Chisum, a Republican from the Panhandle who is chairman of the House Appropriations Committee.

Mr. Chisum said he had received the information from Ben Bridges, a Georgia legislator, and “I never took it very seriously.”

On Feb. 9, Mr. Chisum, 68, an 18-year veteran of the House and second in power only to the speaker, Tom Craddick, sent a memorandum to all 149 other state representatives in Texas.

The one-page memorandum, marked “From: Representative Ben Bridges,” declared that “tax-supported evolution science” was based on religion and therefore unlawful under the United States Constitution.

It continued, “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,” the memorandum stated, “is derived concept-for-concept from Rabbinic writings on the mystic ‘holy book’ kabbala dating back at least two millennia.”

The memorandum said that inquiries could be directed to the Fair Education Foundation, a group in Georgia, and gave its Web address, The site features items belittling the Holocaust and portraying Earth as stationary as depicted in the Bible, with Jewish thinkers like “Kabbalist physicist Albert Einstein” responsible for contrary scientific theories.

If I fly the coop some time
And take nothing but a grip
With the few good books that really count
It's a necessary trip

I'll be gone with the girl in the gold silk jacket
The girl with the pearl-driller's hands

It's like the Protocols of the Elders of Zion or something.

Bloody ####. *puts eyes back into head*
Astounding. That site makes the pre-trial Dover school board look completely rational.

Try this one, too:

And there's some more geocentric stuff at:

Sungenis used to have an offer of $1,000 to anyone who could prove (to him, anyway) that the earth moves around the sun.  That page seems to have been taken down.

Never underestimate the power of fundies to be stupid.

That's a weird charge to make, even for an antisemite. I can't think of any prominent evolutionary biologists who were Jewish with the exception of Gould, and Gould's reputation derives more from his pop-science writings than his fieldwork. Gould wasn't a religious believer anyway.
