This is the most incredibly ignorant rant we’ve ever encountered. It’s not the usual letter-to-the-editor, but we’ll treat it as such. Instead it’s an actual column in Washington Times Communities, which we’re pretty certain is part of the Washington Times. According to Wikipedia, that newspaper “is a daily broadsheet published in Washington, D.C. It was founded in 1982 by the founder of the Unification Church, Sun Myung Moon.”
This thing was written by Frank Kacer, described as having a “regular Biblical Politics column with the Washington Times Communities.” The column is titled Why are public schools terrified of examining evolution & creation? You have to read the whole column to really appreciate it. Every sentence is loaded with the most wild, raw, primitive creationism available anywhere — and we know what we’re talking about because we’ve seen more than our share of that.
Because you’re going to click over there to read it all, we’ll give you only a few excerpts, enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary, and some bold font for emphasis. It begins like this:
If evolution is true, there’s a simple way for public schools to destroy any student’s belief in creation. Simply test each theory objectively in science classes using the scientific method. Instead, irrational lawsuits, court orders and fears of anything hinting of Christianity have become the weapons of choice to prevent use of objective science. So, what are public schools really afraid of?
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! We’re afraid of The Truth™. But the game’s over, because Frankie discloses everything we’ve been trying to hide. Stay with us, you’ll see:
Believers in evolution see all life originating by natural processes from non-living matter. This “goo to you” progression requires billions of years, no divine intervention, and sees natural selection (survival of the fittest), mutation, or some yet undiscovered process as responsible for all observed life.
Creationists believe God purposely and uniquely created the entire universe; all matter, energy and fully functioning living species in six days (Genesis 1:1-2:25) out of nothingness (Hebrews 11:3) thousands of years ago.
How can evolution withstand such a side-by-side comparison? Let’s read on:
So why do government schools have such an irrational fear of objective scientific comparison? Could it be that the worldview implied by mindless evolution is so radical compared to a worldview implied by a Creator?
Yes, that explains our “irrational fear.” He continues:
With evolution, life has no real meaning unless someone arbitrarily thinks so. There’s no ultimate purpose; no moral right or wrong; and no reason to think racism, sexism, abortion or even genocide is anything more than survival of the fittest. If a Creator God doesn’t exist, we’re accountable to no one, and any manner of moral deviancy or government atrocity is no more than a choice.
That’s why so many biologists are baby-raping, cannibalistic monsters. Here’s more:
To dismiss creation as just religion and treat evolution as proven science has nothing to do with objective, scientific facts. Each theory should stand or fall based on available, tested evidence. That being said, is evolution demonstrably true as many believe? Consider the following:
What follows is what Frankie thinks is an absolutely devastating list of evolution’s faults, including the second law of thermodynamics and the fact that “Every known organism is clearly designed in marvelously intricate and self-contained ways. There are no partial, non-functional parts waiting to evolve (or mutate) into something useful.” Not only that, but then he asks: “What about the lack of unambiguous transitional life forms in the fossil record?” After that he says:
Ultimately, the evolutionary belief system envisions mankind continuing to progress until he obtains some form of god nature. Interestingly, that was the very lie that Adam and Eve were deceived by in the Garden of Eden that resulted in their spiritual and physical death (Genesis 3:1-5).
You gotta admit — this guy knows what he’s talking about. One last excerpt from the end should be sufficient:
Which worldview will prevail is the real battle, not just which theory of origins best fits the facts. One explains why death exists and gives hope; while the other tries to explain life and offers no hope.
