We don’t like to embarrass people (unless they’re politicians, preachers, or other public figures), but in this case the letter-writer is a preacher, “Evangelist Chris Caudill.” We can’t find any information about his church, but there’s a guy with the same name in that town who owns a construction company. It’s a small town, so maybe the rev is a contractor during the week. Here are a few excerpts from the rev’s letter, enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary and some bold font for emphasis. Okay, here we go:
Are there other “habitable” planets in the universe?
Great question! We’ve posted quite a few times on discoveries of extra-solar planets, most recently First Earth-like Extra-Solar Planet Found. What does the rev have to tell us? First he explains:
By “habitable”, I mean…”move in ready”…for any living creature or being that exists on planet earth. Our space programs continue the search, in hopes they can find one to prove that evolution occurs.
Hey rev — we already know evolution occurs, so that can’t be the main reason for the search. But we won’t quibble. Let’s read on:
Their logic is, if evolution were true, then they should see life on other planets, because evolution would have occurred there too (This, by the way, is where the concept of space aliens comes from).
Ah, so that’s where the idea of space aliens come from. The rev continues:
But their search has a twofold purpose. They also want to find another planet, because they feel like they need to know there’s another planet people can move to, in order to preserve the human race.
That’s a very long-range purpose. For the present, we think the purpose is simple curiosity. Anyway, here’s more:
But what does the Bible say? We find in the first 13 verses of Genesis chapter one, how that God spent 3 days in the creation of planet earth. Why did He spend so much time on earth? Let’s read what God said in another place in Scripture, in order to get an answer to this question…
No, we’ll skip that and move along:
So what is the purpose for all those celestials in the universe? Let’s look at the reason which God gave us in His Word…
We’re all curious about the divine purpose of those heavenly bodies. Here’s the scriptural answer provided by the rev:
Genesis 1:14-15 KJV
 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:
 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.
That seems clear enough. What does the rev think?
Do we see any indication of “habitation”? Absolutely not. They were created “for” the benefit of planet earth. So, since God did not spend 3 days on any other planet as he did with earth, but instead created everything else in the universe in just one day, then we can safely assume that the earth is the only “habitable” planet that exists in the entire universe.
The logic is undeniable! Another excerpt:
Therefore, we could save a ton of money in the space programs, if they would just simply believe the Scriptures. They have been searching for a very long time, and have researched multitudes of planets in the universe, and their conclusion remains the same…there are no known “habitable” planets in the universe. Every now and then, they will announce that they have discovered another “planet earth”, only to recant their claim later upon further investigation.
Stupid scientists! And now we come to the end of the rev’s letter:
My friend, God’s Word can be trusted.
Someone get word to NASA, and the SETI crowd too. They’re all wasting their time.
