Today’s letter-to-the-editor appears in the Idaho County Free Press of Grangeville, Idaho — population 3,141. The letter is titled God’s word should be used in every class. The newspaper has a comments section.
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 Jim. Excerpts from his letter will be enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary and some bold font for emphasis. Here we go!
Thank you, Senator Nuxoll, for introducing SB-1342! Using the Bible in schools is a very great victory.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Jim is referring to a later version of what we wrote about in Idaho Creationism: New Bill for 2016. The current version is still alive — see Idaho’s 2016 Creationism Bill — Strange News — but it’s being amended enough that it’ll probably be toothless. Jim says:
God’s word should always be used in every class, regardless of any man-made doctrine. It (the Bible) contains all answers to all earthly questions. All you have to do is read it.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! The bible has all the answers, and it’s especially useful in science classes. Let’s read on:
Man-made science would have you believe the earth is millions of years old. The landscape I see is the result of a world-wide flood that happened around 4,500 years ago.
The landscape in Idaho must be very strange. Jim continues:
Lots of people don’t want to read the Bible, because it convicts them in their heart. Therefore, they would rather grasp scientific explanations that question the existence of God, rather than the truth.
Yes, that explains it. Here’s more:
The Bible shows a definite time line that covers 7,000 years, from creation to the end of the book of Revelation.
It sure does. Moving along:
One day soon, Jesus is coming. If you don’t want to be left here in a world full of turmoil and rampant atheism, read the book of John in the New Testament. This book tells very clearly what we must do to be saved.
Good advice! And now we come to the end:
Don’t blow it off, or wait. The time of salvation is now! It’s your choice: science or salvation.
Jim is right. It’s science or salvation. It’s not too late, dear reader. You’ve been warned!
