Creationist Wisdom #367: The Devil’s Gospel

Today’s letter-to-the-editor appears in the Topeka Capital-Journal of Topeka, Kansas and it’s titled The Dupes of Darwin. Clever title, huh?

We’ll give you a few excerpts, enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary, and some bold font for emphasis. Because we don’t like to embarrass people (unless they’re politicians or otherwise in the public eye), we’ll omit the writer’s name and city. However, we Googled her name and it seems that she writes a lot of letters that have appeared in that newspaper. Okay, here we go:

The author of a recent letter to the editor, “Science of because,” bemoaned the addition of intelligent design creationism as science to Charles Darwin’s prevailing “Origin of the Species” theory.

This is the earlier letter she’s complaining about: Science standards shouldn’t answer ‘Why?’ with ‘Because.’ That one is short and sweet. Here’s one excerpt:

Does anyone seriously believe that teaching future generations intelligent design creationism as science will actually create any advances for our society, regardless of your personal belief concerning its validity?

We can understand how that would get a creationist upset — especially one who favors teaching intelligent design. Today’s letter-writer rises to the challenge of defending her beliefs:

While the author [of that earlier letter] is doubtful of “any advances for our society” from such a change, there’s no doubt as to the “advances” inflicted upon our society by the dupes of Darwin.

Get ready, dear reader, because you’re about to be told what the “dupes of Darwin” have inflicted upon us. Here it comes:

Considering the numbers of children fed the devil’s gospel of haphazardly evolving by chance from objects or hairy animals, rather than created in the image of a divine intelligence and designed with dignity, integrity and worth, it’s no great wonder our society has “evolved” into the devil’s contra-consequence, sex-crazed cesspool.

What a letter! The “devil’s gospel” that we evolved “from objects or hairy animals” has turned our society into a “sex-crazed cesspool.” Let’s read on:

The architects of the cesspool have designed a decadent society wherein animals are cherished and protected while “unplanned” human beings are disposed into the trash bin of extinction, and marriages, which form civilizations and families, are dissected into a smorgasbord of sexual preferences.

We hadn’t realized (until now) that Darwin promoted abortion and non-traditional marriages. What a wicked man! There’s only one more paragraph:

How refreshing that a portion of the stench would be released from the cesspool, arranged by persons who acknowledge an intelligence superior to themselves and have responded intelligently to an unintelligently designed gospel.

We agree. Because of today’s letter by a lady who acknowledges the intelligent designer, a mighty stench has been released.

    I can not follow what she said. But I have always had a problem understanding poetry.

    Permit me to help you out here, Alex. She said that persons who acknowledge an intelligence superior to themselves arranged the release of a portion of the stench from a cesspool. And that this stench is refreshing. I take it she refers to the proposal to incorporate ID theology into biology class. That proposal stinks to high heaven to me, so I think it must be what she is bragging about.

  3. Clever title, huh?”

    Especially since it contradicts the misinformation Meyer tries to peddle with “Darwin’s Doubt.” Oh well, if Darwin can be doubter and “duper” at the same time, then we shouldn’t be surprised that “Darwinism” has been called dead, dying, falsified and unfalsifiable.The only consistent claim from these clowns is that it’s the root of all evil.

    The current comments in the newspaper are pretty much in line with the letter writer. They are almost as good.

  5. I am addicted to the Curmudgeon’s letters-to-the-ed & the reader comments that follow. Fascinating American socio-cultural studies. I try to enter a comment myself if possible, but that was not possible at the TC Journal. I think I’ve been blocked. Usually I’m fairly gratified by the comments to these lunatical rants, but the comments to this one were as lunatical as the piece itself. It was the most depressing half-hour I’ve had in months.

  6. Why do they seem to forget that this “superior intelligence” created the devil they so revile?

  7. The Letter-Writer asserts, “The architects of the cesspool have designed a decadent society wherein animals are cherished and protected…”

    So, her church engages in puppy-kicking rituals? What’s so evil about valuing animal life? Isn’t that really being “pro-life”? Are we not to value and respect all life?

    I would like to ask her to explain how an acceptance of evolution leads to a society that is a “sex-crazed cesspool”. This woman certainly gets herself worked up into a frenzy.

  8. retiredsciguy: “I would like to ask her to explain how an acceptance of evolution leads to a society that is a ‘sex-crazed cesspool.”

    Simple. She watched “Expelled.” 😉

  9. Thanks Curm for the heads up. Letter is standard but comments are worrisome.
