Today we bring you another letter-to-the-editor from the News Star of Monroe, Louisiana. This one is titled If evolution is a random process …. We’ll give you some excerpts, and we’ll also add some bold for emphasis, plus our usual Curmudgeonly commentary between paragraphs. Here we go:
The scientific process of evolution has no facts, hard core to back up their theory of the process. They still cling to the “Big Bang” theory, but let’s consider this: How was the material for all the planets and stars created? Did the dirt, water, gases, oil and fire for the billions of trillions of planets and suns create itself?
Dirt, water, gases, oil and fire — the five primal elements! This is an impressive letter indeed. Moving along:
In order for there to be enough material, the vast expanse of it would have had to literally reach a fourth or a third of the way across the entire universe.
Yes, because such material occupies that much space in the universe. Why didn’t anyone think of this before? Let’s read on:
The evolutionists don’t say what caused the explosion that scattered this material untold miles, caused all fragments to be round, rotate around suns, spin and tilt, and hold themselves in these positions. Forget magnetism because magnetism either pulls objects directly to it or pushes it away. How is there enough metal in the earth or other planets to cause magnetism as we know it.
Jeepers! If it’s not magnetism, then what else is there? The letter continues:
Only a force so powerful that it covers heaven and earth could control what happens in this world and all the galaxies. But for this force, the universe’s planets would be slamming against each other like ping pong balls gone mad and us with them.
Thank God for the force! And now we come to the letter’s end:
If evolution is a random process then man is the result of a purposeless and natural process, an insignificant nothing with no purpose, the Ten Commandments on which our laws are founded mean nothing, death is all we have to look forward to.

The significance of what you’ve read here can be life-changing — but only if you ponder it well, dear reader.
