Today’s letter-to-the-editor comes to us from Northern Ireland. It appears in the News Letter, located in Belfast, the oldest English-language newspaper in the world still in publication. The letter is titled God’s power and goodness. There is a comments section at the end.
Because today’s writer isn’t a politician, preacher, or other public figure, we won’t use his full name. But we can’t use his first name because all he uses is an initial, which is J, so we don’t know what to call him (or her). Excerpts from J’s letter will be enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary and some bold font for emphasis. Here we go!
Richard Dawkins believes, like many misguided people before him, that God does not exist. He uses the same old pitiful, limited arguments refusing to accept that evolution as an explanation for the ascent of man is a discredited, outdated theory with no valid scientific basis.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Richard Dawkins it too dumb to know that his theory is discredited, outdated, and has no valid scientific basis. Skipping some bible stuff, the letter-writer says:
[T]wo thousand years ago we were offered a supernatural explanation which is beyond the capacity of modern scientific knowledge to refute. God is outside nature – outside time and space. He is supernatural.
Yes, the supernatural explanation is irrefutable. Let’s read on:
Man can only imagine things which are within his own natural experience and yet many people have a concept of God built into their mind and an emptiness in their soul that only He can fill. He has written His laws in our hearts and given us the instinct that we ought to do right.
None can deny it. The letter continues:
There is good and evil; day and night; love and hate; light and darkness; wrong and right; order and chaos. We cannot understand one without knowing the other. If all the world was chaotic, how would we know if a sense of order was not built into our hearts and minds? That sense of order speaks of a created universe and intelligent supernatural design.
Wow — this is non-stop Oogity Boogity! Here’s more:
Science deals only with the physical universe. The Bible offers explanations of the supernatural.
Yes, the bible very clearly explains the supernatural. Moving along:
It amazes me that there are educated professors who can observe the wonder of the created world and imagine that it came about by a series of unconnected accidental processes over billions of years.
Verily, they’re all fools! Another excerpt:
The natural world speaks to us of God’s power and goodness. There is no other valid explanation for our presence on Earth.
This is a very persuasive letter! And now we come to the end:
He created us just as He created the universe. Our purpose in life is to love Him as He loves us and to seek to do His will.
This letter is one of the best justifications for creationism we’ve ever seen. A great addition to our collection.
