Creationist Wisdom #167: The Final Climax

We are ending our “Creationist Wisdom” series with this post, dear reader, because we’ll never find anything that equals today’s offering, and surely nothing could ever surpasses it.

Your curmudgeon is delighted to present some excerpts from The “Evolution” myth, which appears at the website of Canada Free Press. That site styles itself as “a conservative free press,” whatever that may mean to them. We’ve seen them described as the Canadian equivalent of WorldNetDaily. Wikipedia has a brief entry about them, which informs us: “Canada Free Press is a Canadian website, which publishes conservative news stories, features, and editorials. It is published in Toronto.”

The author of today’s article is Frank Polacek. We know nothing about him, but Canada Free Press has this link: Author Profile — Frank Polacek, which says:

Frank Polacek is 67 yrs. old; an Air Force veteran; served a yr. (1967) in Viet-Nam; owned a trucking business; worked as a diesel and heavy equipment mechanic; a welder and structural fabricator; I am a self taught legal researcher and a pro-se litigant adjudicating “rights” issues, and a political activist of sorts.

We add our own observation that Mr. Polacek must have a world-class heart and circulatory system. Were it otherwise, it’s difficult to imagine how he could have sat at his keyboard to create today’s essay without suffering numerous strokes and having his arteries explode with rage and indignation. We predict that the man will live to be 100.

Okay, let’s get into Polacek’s essay. The italics, capitalization, and bold font — lots of it in every paragraph — are in the original. We haven’t changed a thing. You’ll also observe that most of the words in italics are also placed within quote marks, presumably for extra emphasis. Here we go:

The “myth of evolution” is the most seditious of all attacks being made upon the foundational core principles of our Constitutional Republic. If one accepts the belief that evolution is fact, one must – then and there – surrender and forfeit his “Americanism” which is defined as the belief that our individual rights and liberties are derived from the CREATOR, are founded in “Nature” , and as such are unalienable (absolute) being beyond the power of all Earthly governments to abrogate. Only in “America”, do the rights of the citizen supersede the laws of the state. This is what “Americanism” is!

Fantastic opening paragraph, isn’t it? Let’s read on:

Every one of our State Constitutions (where the common-law and “Americanism” is administered) begins by recognizing this cardinal fundamental. To wit: “We, the People of the State of (your State), thankful to God for our religious and political liberties…”

That’s false. Some state constitutions do start out like that, but others don’t — for example, the Constitution of Virginia and also the Constitution of Vermont. We continue:

A warning of the adverse effect of accepting a factual belief in the un-American mythology of ”evolution” should be irrevocably attached to any mention made of it in our school curriculum textbooks.

Evolution is nothing more than the perspective of the atheist (as stated in their Secular Humanist Manifestos). Atheists obdurately refuse to acknowledge the existence of a Creator (the foundation and very essence of Americanism), regardless of any evidence to the contrary.

Isn’t this great? Here’s more:

An atheist cannot be an “American” in the genuine sense of the meaning of the term as they deny the very essence and substance of what the definition of the word means.

Evolution is the foundation of communism; it is totally anti-thetical to and incompatible with “Americanism” as our Founders defined it.

Let us pause and take stock of what we’ve seen so far. America is a theocracy, atheists can’t be Americans, evolution is atheism, and evolution is communism. Also, there should be warning labels on evolution textbooks. But we’ve only just started; it gets better.

To keep our post brief we’ll skip the author’s paragraphs about Secular Humanism and the Humanist Manifesto. And we’ll also skip several instances of quote-mining which purport to show that although there’s no evidence for evolution, its advocates stubbornly cling to it because they want to avoid creationism. That material concludes with this:

The main motivation for atheism is that leading atheists do not want a values system imposed upon them that could label their hedonistic passions decadent.

Decadent hedonistic passions! Hey, that sentence didn’t have any italics or bold font — a rarity in this article. Moving along

Hitler’s “master race” concept was based squarely upon Darwin’s evolutionary “natural selection” and “survival of the fittest” theory. The Nazis believed that natural evolution justified their extermination of those who they deemed to be “inferior”, just because they had the capacity to do so, nature having made them the “fittest”.

You knew that this author wouldn’t omit the obligatory Hitler accusation. He also tosses in eugenics. Then he mentions Stalin and Mao:

Who decides who gets to live and who must die – someone like Hitler, Stalin, or Mao, the greatest mass murderers in the history of the human race? This is what accepting the myth of evolution has gotten us in the past.

[…]

Consistent with such beliefs, communism (according to a study by the United States Senate) has unapologetically killed more people during peace time than all the wars in history combined. To them, human life is of no more significance or value than that of a horse, a tree, or even a rock lying on the ground.

This is the demonstrated consequence of “evolution” serving as a foundation of a “secular” state.

This is getting rather long, and we’re not even half-way through. The author goes on to mention the New World Order, then he babbles a bit about the undeniably of the First Cause. After that:

Evolution acts as a barrier standing between us and the “standard” to which “civil rights” or “human rights” must perfectly conform. For this reason, promoting “evolution” in this free country is an egregious act of treason against our Constitutions.

Evolution is treason! We won’t excerpt any more because formatting in the author’s style is too tedious. But to entice you to read the whole thing for yourself, we’ll tell you that the fun has only just begun. He also mentions micro- and macro-evolution (yes, the former happens, but not the latter). After that he says there’s no evidence of one species evolving into another, and all alleged evidence is fraudulent. Of course, he mentions Piltdown man, Lucy (what’s wrong with Lucy?), Nebraska man, and Haekle’s embryos. He includes the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics and he even takes a swipe at the Big Bang.

Dear reader, this essay is the ultimate. It’s definitely a keeper. It’s not possible for anyone to ever go beyond this author’s work. That’s why we think we’ll stop our “Creationist Wisdom” series with this post. Today we have reached the summit, and there’s no place else to go.

  1. Classic, another golden nugget for our enjoyment!

  2. Wow! A paragon of ignorance. He’s got weapons-grade stupidity.

  3. There are many common sense exceptions to this “falsifiability” rule, such as gravity and electricity. Neither are ever questioned – we know and accept that they exist and have even learned how to use them. They cannot be “physically” identified or measured as they are not “matter”. They take on the character of the “spiritual”.

    In the face of such wisdom, I can do little more than proclaim myself to be unworthy.

    I’m glad that I will at last be able to address the vileness of my electric bill. I just knew that they weren’t really measuring anything, just taking my money.

    “I’m glad that I will at last be able to address the vileness of my electric bill.”

    Electricity acts as a barrier standing between us and the “voltage” to which “motors” or “devices” must perfectly conform. For this reason, promoting electricity” in this free country is an egregious act of treason against our Constitutions.

  5. Oh, my. I learned a new definition of micro and macro evolution this morning. Micro evolution is aging, as evidenced by hair turning gray. Macro evolution is when one cell becomes a double cell, then a triple cell, and ultimately a whole organism. Who knew?

    I also learned that if you have a Chevy parked in your back yard, it didn’t come from the neighbor’s Ford. That’s good to know, when you wake up some morning and there is a car in your yard.

    I want to know where this decadent, hedonistic atheism is going on that I may hie myself there immediately. Erm, if my wife says it’s okay.

  7. Gabriel Hanna says:

    I want to know where this decadent, hedonistic atheism is going on …

    You’ve been missing out? The rest of us are gettin’ it left and right.

  8. I’m sadly not astonished by the stupidity in the cited article. Nonsense in print–who’d’a thunk it? What surprises me is that it came out in a Canadian publication. The stereotype of a Canadian is someone who is suffering an identity crisis because of that great ape of a nation to the south. Why are they publishing this hoser, eh?

  9. Gabriel Hanna

    @SC:The rest of us are gettin’ it left and right.

    That sounds kind of vanilla. Are you sure you’ve found the decadent hedonism?

  10. Thank goodness you’re moving on. When I first stumbled onto your blog, it was fascinating, but there’s only so much anti-creationism a person can take in without becoming a little backed up with it all. Glad to hear other subjects will be coming into bludgeoning range!

  11. NanU says: “Thank goodness you’re moving on.”

    But I’m not moving on. I probably won’t be playing with any more letters-to-the-editor and similar amateur material, but I’ll still be bashing the professional creationists and their political lackeys.

  12. Uhh. Would you please come up here to Canada and collect your escaped lunatics? I really wonder how they got across the border.

    Maybe there -is- something to this border security issue. We need to keep crazy Americans out of our country.

  13. Janice in Toronto

    Arrrghh. Who let these lunatics into Canada? Maybe there -is- something to this border security issue after all. We really need to keep the American crazies out.

    Darn, we probably left the door unlocked again…

    Now I know why you blog. 😉
    Then you said:

    Noooooo!
    I love the letters and your comments on them (yours are only rivaled by PZ’s when he adds his serify, red-fonted commentary among the Comic Sans). But I suppose a series should always end with the penultimate example, and this is certainly it.

  15. Oh, yeah… I forgot to say that “everyone” bashes the pro creos, no one takes down the amateurs like you do.

  16. I hope you’ll reconsider dropping the creationist letter to the editor schtick. That’s my favorite feature of this blog. Possibly you could just cut back on them without totally abandoning this form of entertainment? Of the hundreds of readers of this blog I’ve spoken with the overwhelming sentiment is in agreement with me. Ok. I made that up , but I’m sure it’s true in my mind.

  17. How on earth do you find this stuff??!! I remain in awe of your unmatched abilities!

  18. Curtis says:

    Another factor is that newspapers are publishing far fewer of those things than they did a year or two ago, and that makes it increasingly difficult to find good material. In addition to the scarcity issue, after having done so many of the things it’s almost impossible to find one with any originality. If I come across something truly amazing I’ll probably post about it. But that’s not likely to happen very often.

    Things might change if some state seems to be on the verge of adopting a creationist law, or if some new court case like Kitzmiller that comes along. That could be the start of a new series, devoted to letters on that topic. There’s no way to predict such things.
