Creationist Wisdom #339: Teach the Truth

This will be the briefest letter-to-the-editor we’ve ever presented to you. It appears in the Topeka Capital-Journal of Topeka, Kansas and it’s titled Why not throw out evolution entirely? We’ll give you a few excerpts, enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary, and some bold font for emphasis. As we usually do we’ll omit the writer’s name and city. Okay, here we go:

Why is it that man tries so hard to dispute God’s word. Genesis 1:20-25, King James version, clearly states what has happened.

The letter-writer doesn’t like to use question marks. The next six paragraphs are a quotation from scripture. We’ll skip that and then — good grief! — then we find ourselves at the final paragraph, which is only one sentence long. Here it is:

Why not teach the children the truth and throw out evolution altogether.

Again, no question mark. Well, that’s it, dear reader. That’s all there is. The solution to The Controversy between evolution and creationism is just that simple — teach The Truth. There’s nothing more to be said, so this is where we’ll end this thing.

  1. A totally honest writer. Screw reality tech ‘em myths!

    Why didn’t I think of this? Of course, the campfire tales of a bunch of nomadic Bronze Age goatherds would trump facts and evidence. There is none so blind as he who will not see…

  3. His reasoning is compelling. I can’t resist.

  4. Ceteris Paribus

    Too wordy.
    ‘Goddidit’ suffices in Kansas.

    Ignorance is curable. Stupidity is not. Alas.
