Today’s letter-to-the-editor appears in the Canada Free Press, which is more of a blog than a news organization. It’s located in Toronto. What we found there is actually a column, but we’ll treat it as a letter. It’s titled Major Media Refuse to Honestly Deal with Evolution! They have a comments section.
Unless the letter-writer is a politician, preacher, or other public figure, we won’t embarrass or promote him by using his full name, but this time we’ve got a preacher who became a politician. It’s Don Boys, who styles himself "Dr. Don Boys." Canada Free Press says he’s “a former member of the Indiana House of Representatives, author of 14 books, frequent guest on television and radio talk shows …” But there’s more to be learned in the bio section of another website:
Dr. Don Boys was born in West Virginia, and received his early education there. Following his salvation as a teen, he preached on the streets of Huntington, in the jails, parks and missions. He entered Moody Bible Institute immediately after high school, was married and continued his education at Tennessee Temple College, Immanuel College and Heritage Baptist University where he earned his Ph.D. While an evangelist and Christian school administrator, Boys was elected to the Indiana House of Representatives, and was identified by the media as the ”most conservative member of the General Assembly.”
So what we’ve got here is a street preacher, bible-college PhD, and former state legislator. We wrote about him once before — see A Street Preacher Opposes Evolution. Excerpts from his new column will be enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary and some bold font for emphasis. Here we go!
Everyone knows that active creationist Christians usually do not get a fair, honest, and balanced hearing of their views on origins. When honest people demand that creation be considered along with the guess of evolution, evolutionists’ knees jerk incessantly (left ones of course).
Yeah, all those evolutionists are lefties. Then he says:
It seems it is not destructive for students to be exposed to all kinds of kinky sexual activity, death education, feminism, transgenderism, socialism, etc., but it is destructive, divisive, and dangerous for them to inquire into the various theories of origins! I am shocked, shocked that the media and liberal groups have come down on the side of bigotry and intolerance!
The street preacher is shocked. Let’s read on:
ABC News commissioned me to write an article for their website on the evolutionary controversy when state school districts were considering a balanced presentation of origins. I wrote the article, and then rewrote it to conform to their space guidelines, but it never showed up on their website. I was told that it was “too militant,” and the readers couldn’t comprehend it! Isn’t that interesting? I pointed out that famous evolutionists have called Creationists “kooky,” “yahoos,” “stupid,” “liars,” “not to be trusted in any way,” “ignorant,” “insane,” and a “gang of ignorant crackpots.” Yet, I’m too militant!
It’s a cruel world. The street preacher continues:
Yes, I am militant, mad, but not malicious; after all, this a war, but the problem is that I put the evolutionists on the spot! And, of course, the media elite are, for the most part, evolutionists, so I am attacking them when I attack evolution. They don’t have answers so they suck their thumbs and whine about creationists being militant and unfair! Their accusing a Creationist of being unfair is like a skunk accusing a rabbit of having bad breath!
He’s not finished ranting about ABC News:
I pointed out that ABC News could have asked me to “tone it down” a bit since they don’t like militancy unless it is from screaming feminists, radical Blacks or homosexual activists. The fact is, as I told my ABC contact, the network is guilty of suppression, if not official censorship! Bigotry! Intolerance! Gasp! Is it possible for ABC to be guilty of such atrocious sins?
Then he complains about USA Today. We’ll skip most of that, until he says:
The professor’s letter in USA Today seemed to reveal that he had not read anything on the subject of creation/evolution in the last 25 years! The average layman is not expected to be aware of the scientific literature, but it is outrageous for a college professor, who takes it upon himself to speak to the issue, to be so uninformed.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Here’s more:
Why should creationism be taught in schools? Because that’s the way man arrived on the planet! Creationists believe a sovereign God created everything out of nothing, while most evolutionists and atheists believe nothing created everything out of nothing! Or, nothing became something and something became everything! I choose to believe, “In the beginning, God created….” I choose to believe that because Scripture and science support that fact.
Moving along, he shifts topics:
According to USA Today, scientist Eugenie Scott [past head of the National Center for Science Education] was appalled that some of our presidential candidates also believe in fairness, reasonableness, and balance. I debated Eugenie at least twice and on Pat Buchanan’s radio show where she admitted that God could have created the universe!
We didn’t know about that, but hey — it could have happened that way. The problem is the lack of evidence. Another excerpt:
Well, that was a huge concession for an avid evolutionist, and most evolutionists will not willingly go to the origins issue. They have to be pushed there. They want to jump over “billions of years” to Darwin’s mythical “warm, little pond.” Well, I’m ready wade in that pond of which there is not a shred of evidence but I first want to know where the pond came from! Where did the earth come from? What about the universe? Evolutionists stampede away from that issue as if their hair was on fire!
Wild stuff, isn’t it? And now we come to the end:
The media think they are sophisticated even scholarly in promoting evolution; however, they are only proving what most people have known for years: they are incompetent, irresponsible, inept, imbalanced, and insincere. Additionally, they are the most overpaid people west of Hollywood.
So there you are, dear reader. It’s always good to see that folks we’ve written about before are still fighting the good fight.
