This is your lucky day, dear reader. Once more we’re visiting the Alvin Sun-Advertiser of Alvin, Texas to discuss another thought-provoking article by that legendary Texas intellect, W. Edward Murphy.
Our last post about Murph was Creationist Wisdom #177: Murphology. It was so spectacular, in the subsequent comments we announced that although Curmudgeon University has heretofore offered only doctorates, that venerable institution is now seriously considering the addition of a simple bachelor’s degree to its mail-order product line. It would be called Bachelor of Murphology — or “BM.”
Murph’s latest is titled Darwin v Christ; Science V Religion? Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us:
A couple years ago on Fox News Channel, there was discussion about Intelligent Design. Charles Krauthammer wound up the comments by saying that Darwinism is science; he dismissed Intelligent Design as “just religion”.
Oh goodie! Murph is going to contradict Krauthammer. Let’s read on:
Darwin is considered to have the scientific explanation of the origin of man; while Christ is to be confined within the boundaries of “religion”. However, Christ developed Intelligent Design – He is the Intelligent Designer, the Creator (you can verify this in the Gospel of John, 1st Chapter, Verse 3, and in the first chapter of the Paul’s letter to the Colossians).
At last we know — Jesus is the Intelligent Designer! Murph’s letter continues:
Oh, by the way, in all of Darwin’s writings, there is nothing as definitive as the statements by John and Paul.
Jeepers — Murph is correct about that. Here’s more:
Last week there was a front-page article in the Houston Chronicle that claimed that the first Americans were also the first Texans, and that they lived 13,100 years ago.
Murph is probably talking about this story, which was all over the news recently. Let’s see what he says about it:
I’ll believe that when the scientists give me the names of their descendants. Ridiculous you say? Well, the Bible says man was created (not evolved) about 6,000 years ago, and gives the descendants, and their families, starting with the first man, Adam, up to the family of King Saul, the first king of Israel.
They can’t fool ol’ Murph! Moving along:
Let’s compare the origin of man from Darwin’s perspective to what God said happened.
This should be good. Here’s Murph’s comparison:
Darwin: All life came from a simple cell. However, no explanation is offered as to the origin of the environment in which the first simple cell “happened”. For example, how did the “primordial ooze” happen to be there? What was the energy source that birthed the cell? Where did the energy come from? The discovery of DNA, the unimaginably complex composition of each cell, obliterates Darwin’s basic concept of a simple cell.
Christ: There is an invisible world that is more real than the physical world we see. (Read about it in the Book of Hebrews, 11th Chapter, Verse 3.) Everything that we see, everything we are, started with a Divine idea, culminating in orderly acts of creation, and finally, man (Genesis 1:1-27).
Wow — what a powerful comparison. Darwin was an idiot!
