Are you one of those hell-bound secularist evolutionists? Do you think all the evidence is on your side, and creationists don’t have any worthwhile arguments in their favor? If that describes you, dear reader, then prepare to be totally blown away.
Today’s letter-to-the-editor appears in the Reading Eagle of Reading, Pennsylvania — known as “The Pretzel City” because of numerous local pretzel bakeries. The letter is titled Biblical creation story is a matter of faith, and the newspaper has a comments feature.
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 Arlene. Excerpts from her letter will be enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary and some bold font for emphasis. Here we go!
In a letter to the editor on March 14 (“Science disproves biblical creation story“), Hal Brossman claimed that science disproves biblical creation.
We can’t read that letter because the newspaper requires a log-in to see it. No matter. Compared to Arlene, that man is obviously a fool! Arlene tells us:
He presents several points that from a naturalistic viewpoint would be insurmountable. He forgets that biblical creation includes God, who is able to accomplish what would be impossible without him.
Aha — that’s a very important point! Let’s read on:
He says that planets can only be formed after there is a parent star. Has he tested this theory?
Whammo! Earth could have appeared before the sun, just as it says in Genesis. Arlene continues her demolition job:
He stated we cannot have day and night before the sun was created. God can create light without a sun.
Whammo again! Here’s more:
He discounts water being above the earth. I believe our clouds contain water even now.
Kablooey! Another excerpt:
Plants can be created before the sun if the sun will arrive the next day. As for birds and fish being created on the same day, fossil records are open to various interpretations.
Yeah! Why is your interpretation any better than Arlene’s? On with the letter:
When Adam was 1 day old he was a mature man. When distant stars were created they could have been made in a mature form with light already reaching the ends of the universe.
Wham-Bam-Pow! There goes your argument about why the universe must be more than 6,000 years old! And now we come to the end:
Neither evolution nor creation can be proved scientifically. We cannot go back in time to observe or repeat the process over and over to verify results. Each of us must accept our interpretations based on faith.
You don’t have any come-back, do you, dear reader? We didn’t think so. Now slink away and rethink everything — before it’s too late!
