WE present to you, dear reader, a letter-to-the-editor titled On Darwin, witchcraft and butterflies, which appears in the Oroville Mercury-Register of Oroville, California. We like that newspaper; they publish the letters of Don Fultz — for example: E=MC Unified.
This one isn’t by Fulz, but it’s one of his neighbors. They’re both located in Butte County.
Unfortunately, we can’t copy the letter. That newspaper is owned by Media News Group, which sues bloggers who excerpt their material without permission. But click over there and read it for yourself. It’s amusing.
It contains a very peculiar treatment of Spontaneous Generation and the Origin of Life. We can see where the letter-writer is going. “Scientists thought X in the past, and X was wrong. Now they think Y. They’re wrong again. But Oogity Boogity is never wrong.”
