Today’s letter-to-the-editor appears in the Walla Walla Union-Bulletin of Walla Walla, Washington. It’s titled Evolutionary frauds perpetuated on public. The newspaper has a comments section, but it looks like you need to sign in to see them.
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 Guillermo. Excerpts from his letter will be enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary and some bold font for emphasis. Here we go!
Wow! A new evolutionary human lineage based on nothing more than a partial jawbone, allegedly human! How many times are they going to trot out this evolutionary dead end before folks get fed up with being duped?
We assume he’s talking about this: Genetic analysis of 40,000-year-old jawbone reveals early modern humans interbred with Neandertals, which has been all over the news. Guillermo isn’t impressed. He says:
When it comes to religious zealotry, no one beats an evolutionary true believer. Evolutionists asserted that Piltdown man was an ancient ancestor of modern man. … More than 400 doctoral degrees were awarded based on Piltdown man. None of those degrees was rescinded after the fraud was exposed. Talk about scientific integrity.
Next, we have Nebraska man. The scientific evidence consisted of a single tooth. Despite this paucity of evidence, public school science textbooks carried artistic depictions of not only the male tooth donor, but his female mate. Alas, the tooth actually belonged to an extinct peccary.
Aaaargh!! What textbooks has Guillermo been looking at? TalkOrigins debunks that too. Guillermo continues:
Then came Orce man. Discovered in Spain, it was claimed to be the oldest fossilized human bone ever found in Europe. Plans were made for a huge celebration with evolutionary luminaries from around the world in attendance. Alas, the bone actually came from a young donkey.
We never heard of that one. According to TalkOrigins, it’s a story told by Duane Gish about a briefly misidentified fragment — see Creationist Arguments: Orce Man. Guillermo declares:
These are just a few examples of evolutionary frauds perpetuated on the public by evolutionists in the past.
Yes, it’s just one fraud after another. Here’s more:
Yet, when Dr. Ben Carson (arguably the greatest neurosurgeon ever) declared for the presidency, the U-B [presumably the Walla Walla Union-Bulletin] failed to mention he is a young-Earth creationist who disdains evolution.
Carson is a very likable man, but alas, he’s a flaming creationist. The newspaper was being kind to Carson by not mentioning that, but Guillermo thinks it’s part of a conspiracy to suppress the evidence that a genius opposes evolution. Skipping to the end:
Could it be that evolution is really nothing more than a humanist religion based on the philosophical assumption that God does not exist and is not endemic to real science? Think about it.
So there you are. Guillermo has exposed us. Evolution is a total fraud. Now you know.
