Today’s letter-to-the-editor appears in The Spectrum, a Gannett newspaper that doesn’t disclose its location, but their weather report reveals that they’re located in St. George, Utah. The letter is titled You have three choices. An icon below the headline gets you to the newspaper’s comments feature.
Because the writer isn’t a politician, preacher, or other public figure, we won’t embarrass or promote him by using his full name. We’ll use only his first name, which is Michael. Excerpts from his letter will be enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary and some bold font for emphasis. Here we go!
You can’t have evolution without matter. So where did matter come from?
Wow — what a profound question! Michael is a deep thinker. Well, where does matter come from? Here’s what Michael says:
Three choices. The universe created itself, the universe is self existing or special creation.
Brilliant! It’s perfectly logical that those are the only possibilities. Let’s read on:
All three are religious.
Huh? We know that special creation is religious, but what about the other two? Michael explains:
“Nothing blew up and here we are” and “the universe is self existing” are not scientific statements. They take faith.
Oh. Okay. Here’s more:
To be scientific it must be demonstrable, repeatable and observable (unlike evolution).
Repeatable. Aaaargh!! We just discussed that in Creationist Wisdom #555: Evolution Isn’t Science, therefore — if you’ll pardon the expression — we won’t repeat ourselves. Moving along:
So, where did matter come from? Question: If you know ten percent of everything, is it possible God exists in the ninety percent you don’t know?
Jeepers — another great question! Michael is full of them — or something. Well, dear reader, what do you think? Is God in what you don’t know? Michael gives us the answer at the end of his letter:
Let me help you: Yyyyeeeessss.
So now you know — it’s all about what you don’t know. Thanks, Michael.
