Today’s second letter-to-the-editor appears in a newspaper that doesn’t give its name, but it’s probably the Intelligencer Journal of Lancaster, Pennsylvania. The letter is titled Mother Nature and evolution. The newspaper has a comments section.
Because the writer isn’t a politician, preacher, or other public figure, we won’t embarrass or promote him by using his full name. His first name is Michael. Excerpts from his letter will be enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary and some bold font for emphasis. Here we go!
I’d like to introduce you to Intelligent Evolution.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Go ahead, Michael, we’re ready:
You’ve surely heard of Intelligent Design, but how much more amazing is how intelligent Mother Nature is when she sets out to evolve something important like the human being.
Brace yourself, dear reader. Michael is about to explain how “intelligent nature” is much more improbable than an intelligent designer. Let’s read on:
No one knows how long it took to evolve the first man, but knowing there are some 20,000 parts to a DNA molecule, it had to have taken millions of years and lots of pond scum.
The DNA molecule has 20,000 “parts”? BWAHAHAHAHAHA! According to Wikipedia’s article, Human genome, human sperm and egg cells each have three billion DNA base pairs, and the DNA in our other cells has twice that number. Michael continues:
Can’t you just see it now? All the time spent, and then the man dies and the project is put on hold because he had no mate. Now Mother Nature has to start all over again.
Poor Mother Nature — all that work and nothing to show for it. Now she’s gotta go back to pond scum to start all over. Here’s more:
We imagine many attempts; one time a man evolves, and the next time a woman, and then perhaps after 30 or 40 attempts Mother Nature finally evolves both a man and a woman simultaneously so that the species can continue. Why, it may have taken billions of years!
Finally! Wow — Mother Nature must have been exhausted! Moving along:
But that would present a problem because most secular evolutionists are convinced man is only 100 million years old or so.
Uh, not quite that old, but Michael is only off by maybe 99 million years or so. Let’s not worry about it. Here’s Michael’s conclusion:
Well, I don’t know how she did it, but that Mother Nature sure is one smart cookie.
That’s the most devastating attack on evolution we’ve ever seen. Isn’t it time you gave it up, dear reader?
