Today’s letter-to-the-editor appears in the Stevens Point Journal of Stevens Point, Wisconsin. It’s titled Follow Scripture, not evolutionists. The newspaper has a comments feature you can access via an icon below their headline.
Because the writer isn’t a politician, preacher, or other public figure, we won’t embarrass or promote her by using her full name. Her first name is Rosemarie. Excerpts from her letter will be enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary and some bold font for emphasis. Here we go!
I’m tired of hearing on social media that we derive from gorillas, apes and the monkey animals and many call them our ancestors.
Why is Rosemarie tired of hearing that? She says:
When God created the Garden of Eden and made man in his own image, he created the human race.
Hearing that can get tiresome too, but not to Rosemarie. Let’s read on:
Adam and Eve were called human beings.
[*Curmudgeon searches bible (King James version, of course) for the word “human” but finds nothing.*] Rosemarie continues:
We are not created to be primates, which is where apes come from.
Okay. Here’s more:
So many people are being taught evolution in our schools and colleges based on hypothetical theories; they leave the creation story which is first of all in God’s book, the Holy Bible. Read Genesis.
Good advice! Moving along:
Students are reading other books written, most likely, by atheists or agnostics and scientists.
Egad — those wicked books should be banned! Another excerpt:
Scientists have misled us by writing about how the world came into being without reference to Biblical knowledge. It all started with Adam and Eve.
Right on! We love you, Rosemarie! And now we come to the end of her letter:
Get your facts straight and read scripture and have some faith in God.
There you are, dear reader. Now go forth and do as Rosemarie says. She knows what she’s talking about.
