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!
The theory of evolution begins with the Big Bang, where all matter and antimatter of the universe was primordially compacted at infinite density or zero size but exploded billions of years ago.
Every sentence of John’s letter is like that. It’s pure gold! Then he says:
A black body radiation in the background of the heavens is assumed to be the remnant of the explosion.
“Assumed.” BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Before the Cosmic microwave background was found, its existence was predicted, because it was a necessary consequence of the Big Bang, and its existence was inconsistent with every competing theory. Let’s read on:
But the evolution of life demands the impossible change of dead matter into plants and living creatures, which animate and multiply.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! “Impossible change” of dead matter into “plants and living creatures” (plants aren’t alive), which “animate.” This is fantastic stuff! Let us, ah, animate ourselves to John’s next brilliant sentence:
And that people change the surface of the earth whereas animals leave it as it is.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! What does that mean — gopher holes disprove evolution? John continues:
We also invent iPads and put humans on the moon with rockets because we have spiritual faculties.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Here’s more:
Evolution is a theory for the past which is not observable and it makes animals out of men. It has to be accepted by faith, like the vast ages, for evolution and expansion.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Moving along:
The latter [expansion] is verified by a redness of receding galaxies according to the Doppler shift but the red can be intrinsic also.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Yes, Edwin Hubble was a fool! He failed to realize that the strict association of each galaxy’s “intrinsic” redness and its distance from us is just a coincidence. Another excerpt:
Further, ages for evolution and expansion do not contradict one another but the agreement is still theoretical.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Yes, it’s merely “theoretical” that every field of science is consistent with every other. And now we come to the end of John’s magnificent letter:
Ultimately we have a free choice to believe in human theory or in the Scriptures based on faith only.
John has made his choice. Go, dear reader, and do thou likewise.
