Today’s letter-to-the-editor appears in the Laconia Daily Sun of Laconia, New Hampshire . It’s titled Science, I believe, will continue to be as corrupt as it is today. The newspaper doesn’t have a comments feature.
Because today’s 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 John. Excerpts from his letter will be enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary and some bold font for emphasis. Here we go!
Some time ago I believed and wrote the same, that the evolutionary paradigm would not yield until the return of the Lord Jesus Christ.
That’s a perfectly reasonable belief. What happened to change John’s mind? He tells us:
After considerable investigation into the intelligent design movement I no longer believe that that is the case. The scientific evidence supports the intelligent design model. There is a core group of scientists who seems determined to soldier on until the evidence wins the day. The paradigm will shift.
Ah, John now thinks “a core group of scientists” at the Discovery Institute will vanquish evolution even before Jesus returns. Won’t that be wonderful? Let’s read on:
I’m not so sure that this will be the good news for the Christian church that one might expect.
Huh? Why not? John tells us:
Had the paradigm shifted some time ago or even if it were to shift today, even with the eroded state of our constitutional protections today, it might be enough to resurrect real First Amendment protections of freedom of religion. That would be a good thing. But I’m afraid that it won’t happen that way.
We’re confused about John’s hope for a resurrection of “real First Amendment protections of freedom of religion,” but let’s continue reading to learn why he thinks that won’t happen:
Science, I believe will continue to be as corrupt as it is today, and as it has been co-opted for political purposes today in climate change, and in the theory of evolution, so will this science be co-opted to prop up the one world false religion that will require the worship of the false Christ at the threat of death to those who refuse. It will be used to prop up a theocracy like that which conservative Christians have been falsely slandered of promoting; only it will be a false religion.
Wow — science is a false religion that will prop up a theocracy that will threaten death to all who reject it! Here’s more:
Those who support the consensus view today, who are deluded into thinking that they are avant-garde, when they are really merely supporters of the status quo; will themselves become vigorous supporters of this new paradigm as if they knew it all the time. It’s what they do.
John predicts that you, dear reader, will support the new scientific theocracy of death! And now we come to the end:
Many saints will be martyred at this time, and then the Lord will return in the clouds as he said.
Egad! John predicts that creationists will become martyred saints, and not even the Discoveroids can prevent it. Only then will the Lord return.
It’s a frightening vision, but maybe John is correct. It probably won’t be long before we all find out.
