Anti-Semitic wingnuttery

A memo being circulated in several states, and purportedly originating with Georgia state Representative Ben Bridges (though he denies it), declares that the theory of evolution is a 2,000-year-old Jewish "deception". The memo also contains a link to a website which claims that the Earth does not rotate, nor revolve around the Sun, and that many discoveries of modern science are actually Jewish lies. There is a long history of links between fake science and anti-Semitism, but this is a new one to me.

Found via The Barefoot Bum.

Sadly No displays the memo here, with numerous comments.
