Today, dear reader, we bring you a letter-to-the-editor titled Creation more scientific than evolution, which appears in the Shreveport Times of Shreveport, Louisiana. We’ll give you a few excerpts, enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary, and as we usually do we’ll omit the writer’s name and city. Here we go, with a bit of bold font added for emphasis:
A group that supported a failed attempt this legislative session to repeal the Louisiana Science Education Act of 2008 undoubtedly thinks creation is too religious to be taught in public schools.
However, creationists believe evolution is as religious as creation. They cite the miracles expected of evolution from the big bang to creation of the first one-celled organism to creating complicated creatures, finally leading to man.
If we were just starting this series of letters-to-the-editor, we’d be tempted to say that this is the most misinformed letter we’ve ever encountered. But we’ve posted almost 200 of these things, and we are no longer amazed by what we find out there. Let’s continue:
If evolution has no god and is only atheistic, then the odds of chance still cannot cause it to produce anything. Creation explains processes of life. It is more scientific than evolution, and it functions for a purpose.
Yes, creationism explains everything — except for one little-bitty thing, which is this: Why is it that those who specialize in creation science are the most ignorant, simple-minded, and useless people in the world?
Today’s is a short letter so we won’t excerpt any more. Click over to the Shreveport Times and take a look at it. Every sentence drips with … well, you decide, dear reader. We don’t want to be judgmental.
