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 Maynard. This is the third time we’ve written about one of his letters. First there was #579: We Were Deceived!, and then #592: God or Nothing. Excerpts from his latest letter will be enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary and some bold font for emphasis. Here we go!
We know that secular scientists refuse to give any credence to the theory of Intelligent Design because it is “unscientific.” Well, think along with me for a minute about such closed-mindedness. Suppose that Intelligent Design is the real truth of the matter.
Hey — that’s neat! What if Intelligent Design really is the truth? Lets find out what Maynard does with that idea. He says:
First of all, if the real truth is left out of the conversation, and some other possibility (such as billions of years) is put in its place, would not every conclusion drawn from such a false premise be flawed? Isn’t that basic science? If your foundation is not true, nothing you build on it can be trusted.
Can’t argue with that! Let’s read on:
Well, that is exactly the road that the theory of evolution has traveled. From the get go it has been littered with erroneous conclusions and outright lies.
Amazing! Does Maynard have any examples? Yes, he does! Brace yourself, dear reader:
For example, consider missing links. For more than 150 years they have searched unsuccessfully for a transitional form between apes and today’s mankind. Over the millions of years it would have taken for such evolution to occur, there should be thousands of transitional forms. However, so far, no such fossils have been found — zero. Not that they haven’t tried. Numerous “missing links” have been put forward: Piltdown man (a deliberate hoax), Nebraska man, Neanderthal man, Lucy, Ida, et al. — all proven to be false.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! As with Maynard’s earlier letters, this one is another catalog of creationist clunkers, all of which we’ve debunked several times before, or are found in the TalkOrigins Index to Creationist Claims. Because his arguments are so familiar, we won’t bother with any debunking. Here’s more:
One icon of this nature, however, continues to hang on. We are all familiar with the ape-to-man pictorial that graces many textbooks worldwide. Did you know that there is no fossil evidence for more than two-thirds of these artist’s renditions?
Uh, doesn’t the fossil evidence that Maynard admits exists mean anything? No, and he explains why:
And even if there were, it is impossible to reconstruct what flesh and hair would have been like from a mere bone fragment. They are all fanciful imaginations based on the false premise of what billions of years might have produced.
Okay. Moving along:
I should also mention rock dating. Why are some rocks said to be millions of years old when they are found to contain carbon-14 molecules which would have completely dissipated after only 103,000 years or so?
Would it have been too burdensome for Maynard to learn something about Radiometric dating? Apparently yes. Here’s another excerpt:
And you might also check out the textbook peppered moth story — dead moths being affixed to a tree trunk in order to stage photographic “proof” of evolution. The list goes on and on.
Yes, it’s an endless list of frauds. And now we come to the end:
Satan, the father of lies, has given us evolution so that we might not give credit to our one and only Creator God, and his word, the Bible. Open your minds and hearts, my dear friends. The time is getting short.
Wise words indeed!
