Today’s letter-to-the-editor, titled You can’t prove the theory of evolution, appears in the Cumberland Times-News of Cumberland, Maryland. 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.
We will disclose, however, that this one is definitely worthy of your special attention because the letter-writer is a preacher. Here we go, with a bit of bold font added for emphasis:
True science does not and should not endorse unproven theories as science. Evolution, of course, is not a proven fact. From a purely scientific basis no one has scientific proof of when or how the universe, life, man, came into existence.
You have no proof, dear reader. So why do you cling to your beliefs? The preacher knows. Stay with us, you’ll see:
Factually most people who believe in and teach evolution do so because they fear the existence of God and His creating the world they live in.
Fear — it’s all about fear! Let’s read on:
Here is the basic creed or belief of evolutionists. I have shortened it just slightly to save time. But when pushed here is the evolutionist creed. Nothing plus nothing plus time equals everything.
Aaaargh!! He’s figured it out! We continue:
Look where this leaves us educationally. We don’t study the first man, Adam. We don’t study the greatest King, David. We don’t study the strongest man, Samson. We don’t study the greatest general, Joshua. We don’t study the wisest man, Solomon.
We wind up not knowing who we are, how we got here, what we are supposed to be doing, and not knowing what happens after death. And this is called first class education.
We know nothing — nothing! It’s painful to read the preacher’s letter, so we’ll skip to the end:
Evolution is not scientifically provable, It is just wild guessing and wrong interpretation of things. It is clearly anti-god, anti-religion, and anti-reason. Don’t be taken in by such nonsense.
That’s it, dear reader. Now as you go about your business today, reflect upon the emptiness of the false doctrine you learned in school: “Nothing plus nothing plus time equals everything.” There may still be time to repent.
