Because the writer isn’t a politician, preacher, or other public figure, we won’t embarrass or promote him by using his full name. After Googling around we think he’s an air conditioning contractor, but that doesn’t qualify for full-name treatment. His first name is Tom. Excerpts from his letter will be enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary and some bold font for emphasis. Here we go!
After reading the Bible for the past 47 years (age 30 to 77 years old) I believe I have attained a degree of understanding about the origin and purpose for which our world exists.
Tom certainly has an adequate background for understanding the origin and purpose of the world. This should be good! He says:
Rather than accepting the “world view” which basically states that life came about by accident or “chance,” I know that chance is not an entity, it is not a thing that has power to affect other things. Chance offers us a rabbit without a hat and — what’s even more astonishing — without a magician!
“Chance” is not an entity. It’s powerless. Wow — this is fantastic! Let’s read on:
On the hand at least we have God, the Creator, a potential miracle-worker.
Great argument! You can’t beat something with nothing. Tom continues:
Modern science has shown that the possibility of a human cell happening by chance is zero.
We’ve seen all kinds of big numbers assigned to the improbability of life’s beginning, but we don’t recall any scientific demonstration that the possibility is zero. That’s a new one. Then we’re told:
Even evolutionists who are well known and highly regarded have stated that no one has ever seen any real evolution (from one kind of creature to a more complex kind of creature) take place.
Aaaargh!! There are numerous Observed Instances of Speciation, and also 29+ Evidences for Macroevolution, but creationists demand real-time visual evidence of very large-scale evolutionary progression — the kind that can occur only over millions of generations — and which are therefore evidenced only in the fossil record and in DNA. Here’s more from Tom:
Although some believe that evolutionary changes have taken place over millions of years of supposed earth history, none of those speculations can be proved or even tested. No human was present to observe or record them, so such ideas are entirely outside the scope of real science. Evolution must be “believed,” not observed. It is a matter of faith, not science.
Egad — evolution is faith! That means it’s worthless! Moving along:
Just imagine if you will, at this point in time, well over a centutry [sic] after Darwin and despite the lifelong effects of thousands of scientists and untold millions of dollars spent on elaborate studies and experiments, evolutionists have never experimentally observed the evolution of a single new species, nor do they have any idea of the mechanism by which evolution works.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Evolutionists are fools! They don’t even have an idea for a mechanism by which evolution works! On the other hand, that’s not a problem for Yahweh. Tom concludes his letter with a powerful quote:
One leading evolutionists, astronomer Robert Jastrow said, “Scientists have no proof that life was not the result of an act of creation.”
Admit it, dear reader — Tom knows what he’s talking about. Great letter!
