State lawmakers in Georgia and Texas have been tied to a memo blaming Kaballah for the “Big Bang” theory of the creation of the universe. “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,” the memo says, according to The Associated Press. “This scenario is derived concept-for-concept from Rabbinic writings in the mystic ‘holy book’ Kabbala dating back at least two millennia.” 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, www.fixedearth.com, 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.
