Creationist Wisdom #127: New World Order

WE present to you, dear reader, a letter-to-the-editor titled Teaching Darwin is to teach propaganda, which appears in the The Citizen of Auburn, New York. We’ll copy most of today’s letter, omitting the writer’s name and city, adding some bold for emphasis and our Curmudgeonly commentary between the paragraphs. Here we go:

I am writing this letter in response to an article in Nation/World section of The Citizen on Sunday, March 7, 2010. The article entitled “Home School Texts Dismiss Darwin” is a propaganda piece sent out by the Associated Press that attempts to paint home-schoolers as ignorant for not believing in Darwinian Evolution as a basis for the origin of life.

We can’t locate that earlier article in The Citizen, but there are several links to other news organizations that ran the AP story. It was everywhere. Here’s one: Top home-school texts dismiss Darwin. Let’s read on:

Science itself stacks the deck against the Darwinian belief system of spontaneous generation, a fundamental plank of Darwin’s evolution theory. In 1668 Italian biologist Francesco Redi showed that complex creatures were produced only by others like themselves and not from dead matter. In the mid 1800s Louis Pasteur once again disproved the theory of spontaneous generation by showing that bacteria would not grow in materials that were sterilized.

Redi and Pasteur. The false legends never die. We’ve discussed those here: Creationist Wisdom — Example Nine. And let’s not trouble ourselves with the letter-writer’s bizarre claim that spontaneous generation is “a fundamental plank of Darwin’s evolution theory.” We continue:

Today, molecular biology is just beginning to grasp the astounding complexity of just a single cell. This amazing complexity could in no way have arisen in the supposed movement of the prehistoric seas or any of the other faith based scenarios posed by Darwinian evolutionists.

Right — there’s just “no way” these things could have happened naturally. Creationists rightly condemn such “faith based scenarios.” Here’s more:

The reason for the propagation of the lie of Darwinian theory is the establishment of the religion of the New World Order which gives rise to the genocidal policies carried out by trans-national corporations against indigenous people groups of the world.

Whoa! That’s a new one. Very creative (no pun). Moving along:

The “survival of the fittest” mindset is being used to justify any atrocity deemed necessary by the global elite.

The global elite! We love this letter. And now we come to the end:

Darwin’s theory of Evolution, and survival of the fittest are theories I choose not to embrace. I am glad the option of home education is still available to those who choose it.

[Writer’s name and city can be seen in the original.]

As often happens in these situations, we can’t think of a thing to add.

  1. I’ve known about the New World Order since 1998:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_World_Order_(conspiracy_theory)#End_Time

    The people at my old Baptidome thought the end of the world was coming. That’s where this person seems to get it from.

  2. LRA says: “I’ve known about the New World Order since 1998”

    I’ve heard about it for years. But I was unaware that creationists were making a Darwin connection.

  3. Yeah– the connection comes via that old canard: That Darwin’s theories = eugenics = Nazism = Neo Nazism = Forth Reich (NWO) = End of the world (OH NOES!!!!)

    😛

  4. LRA says: “End of the world (OH NOES!!!!)”

    In that case, we’ll always have Paris. Here’s lookin’ at you, kid.

  5. But I was unaware that creationists were making a Darwin connection.

    Well, as long as they don’t make the connection with The Plan of the Templars, they’ve still not revealed the whole picture. (The Templars have, of course, something to do with everything, as Abulafia assures us. )

    I can. He obviously got his science “education” by watching “Expelled.”

    Nope. He was home-schooled.

  8. Do not use usernames or passwords from your financial accounts!

  9. We all know that fast food establishments like McDonalds and Burger King are going to be around for a long time because we’ll keep needing the occasional quick and tasteless meal during our hectic lives. Those places are going to need highly undereducated, culturally retarded and frighteningly unimaginative workers, who incidentally (or should that be consequently), rely on their imaginary friend to help them get through the day.

    Those home-schoolers who feel their anti-science texts are really quite hunky-dory are just helping society fill that fast-food worker niche.

  10. Someone should tell this goof, what happened to the indigenous people of NA is slightly more severe than anything home schoolers have ever experienced or anticipated.

    This guy deserves a bucket of unprocessed elephant dung.

  11. retiredsciguy: “Nope. He was home-schooled.”

    Which means that he either was required to watch “Expelled” or got the equivalent (and no more or less) from the instructional material on evolution.
