Today’s letter-to-the-editor appears in the Idaho Press-Tribune of Nampa, Idaho. It’s titled More evidence for creation than evolution. The newspaper has a comments feature.
Because the writer isn’t a politician, preacher, or other public figure, we won’t embarrass or promote him by using his full name. He has a great first name — Rory. Excerpts from his letter will be enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary and some bold font for emphasis. Here we go!
The speculations about evolution continue. More theories, ideas and wishful thinking just keep coming, but there is no real evidence to support this “theory.”
Great beginning, isn’t it? We’re delighted that this letter is number 600 in our collection. Then Rory says:
We have trained up generations on this swill, and we see the results in the shootings, carnage and ruined lives of its adherents.
He’s right — all those senseless shootings we hear about are done by evolutionists! Let’s read on:
Evidences for creation fit far better with the reality we see around us, and most people know this.
Too bad Rory didn’t mention any of that evidence, but he really doesn’t need to, does he? His letter continues:
So why insist upon evolution-only education in our Humanist schools?
Great question! You don’t have to sit there in confusion, because Rory tells us why:
Answered my own question — to produce Humanists who believe man is his own god.
Obviously. Here’s more:
Have you seen what we are doing to each other? Wars without end, suffering, famines and all of it at mans’ own hands.
War, famine, suffering — all because we’re teaching evolution! Hey — the next excerpt is important:
This all has been prophesied in the Bible for almost 2,000 years that the end times would be so.
Yes — oh yes! — it’s all been foretold. And now we come to the end of the letter:
This world is failing. Do you know the Creator, and are you ready for the new world to come?
Don’t even try to debate Rory, dear reader. He’s way ahead of you. Great letter!
