We really hit the mother lode when we discovered the Daily Mining Gazette of Houghton, Michigan (population 7,708) in the northwestern portion of that state’s Upper Peninsula. Today’s letter-to-the-editor is our third from that publication. The others were #307: Evolution Is Un-American and #315: Atheist Myth.
The title of the latest letter is No possible evolution . We’ll give you a few excerpts, enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary and some bold font for emphasis. As we usually do, we’ll omit the writer’s name and city. Okay, here we go:
The message of the cross is foolish to those who are headed for destruction! But we who are being saved know it is the very power of God. As the Scriptures say, [scripture quote omitted].
At first, there’s no pretext that the letter-writer is engaged in “creation science” or that he’s promoting the bogus theory called intelligent design. The letter starts out as if it were nothing but old fashioned, down home creationism. That stuff is scientific nonsense, but we applaud honest creationists for their sincerity. The letter continues:
There is no possible evolution, since the universal laws of conservation and decay govern all natural processes. The First Law (mass/energy conservation) reveals that the universe did not create itself.
Ooops! We were mistaken. The letter-writer has lapsed into creation science. Ah well, let’s read on:
The Second Law (mass/energy deterioration) indicates that the universe was created in the beginning and is not of infinite age or else it would have completely deteriorated into death. It was spoken into existence by the Word of all powerful God! Those who don’t believe it are “without excuse” (Romans 1:20).
Our first impression was definitely wrong. This letter is hard-core, bible-based creation science. It continues:
The Apostle Paul writes [scripture quote omitted]. False science (evolution) and vain babbling (humanistic philosophies) seek to destroy God’s truth.
Paul rejected the theory of evolution? Okay. Here’s more:
“Oppositions” are empty philosophies resulting in Marxism. “Science falsely so-called” is literally “pseudo-science” or “pseudo knowledge.” This pseudo-science is nothing other than evolutionism, which has been in “oppositions” against God as Savior and Creator since the beginning of time.
Marxism? If you need to see rebuttal for that, we wrote this more than four years ago: Marx, Stalin, and Darwin. And now we come to the end:
Those of us who have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit to believe in the Lord Jesus Christ have been given eternal life supernaturally through faith in Him and have been born again (twice born) as children of Almighty GOD. Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and be “saved.”
So there you are. There’s no such thing as evolution — and if you keep insisting otherwise, you’re headed for the Lake of Fire.
