WE present to you, dear reader, a letter-to-the-editor titled ‘Lie of evolution’ deeply ingrained in society, which appears in the Kennebec Journal of Augusta, Maine. We’ll copy most of today’s letter, but we’ll omit the writer’s name and city. We’ll also add some bold for emphasis, plus our usual Curmudgeonly commentary between paragraphs. Here we go:
The lie of evolution is so deeply ingrained in our society that we are afraid to teach even the “theory” of creation in our schools. Evolution has bred corruption into every facet of our lives.
Corruption! Let’s read on:
Darwin’s teacher believed that his sole purpose was to make us “independent of the creator.”
Yes — Christ’s College, Cambridge, where Darwin studied for the Anglican clergy, was notorious for that sort of thing. We continue:
To deny God’s existence, people quickly adopted his ideas. Insisting that there is no creator doesn’t make him cease to exist. The Earth itself declares there is a creator. Even NASA astronauts, after going into space for the first time, cannot deny God’s existence.
Space travel can have that effect. Here’s more:
All the great scientific discoveries came from Bible-believing scientists, including Isaac Newton, Robert Boyles, Michael Faraday, Albert Einstein, Marie Curie and Louis Pasteur. They knew that each fact of the universe must be understood in the context of God’s holy word.
Today’s letter-writer is very well-informed. Hey — you probably didn’t know this:
In fact, there have been few major scientific discoveries since we decided to deny the truth of God’s Word.
Consider the nit-wits who brought us: Japanese beetles to “pollinate” our plants; the ethanol we are forced to use even though it is destroying motors in our chainsaws, snowmobiles, ATVs, etc.; new medicines, both the ones you should ask your doctor about and the ones you should call a lawyer about; genetically engineered corn forced upon us regardless of how it will affect us; and nuclear power. Oil industry mistakes are obvious, but those in the nuclear industry are invisible, but very deadly.
Darwin’s fault, all of it! Moving along:
Our Declaration of Independence reads, “They are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights,” and later, “with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence.”
That’s what it says. Darwin must have been an idiot! And now we come to the end of today’s letter:
Let’s take our beautiful state back from the liberals and the socialists.
[Writer’s name and city can be seen in the original.]
The letter says it all. We’re very impressed.
