Because the 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 David. We’ve written about one of his letters before — see #691: Jonathan Wells Fan. Excerpts from his new letter will be enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary and some bold font for emphasis. Here we go!
Many people have lost their Christian faith because they realized that the Bible declares a young earth and universe. When you add up the dates given in the genealogies, you come to 4004 B.C., which makes the universe about 6,020 years old.
And many Christian denominations are doing just fine because they aren’t young-Earthers. David apparently doesn’t think about them. He says:
But they are told in their science classes and by the culture in general, that the universe is billions of years old and that we evolved from pond scum. This is presented to students as a fact, but there are thousands of scientists who say that real science is a Christian’s best friend, because it supports the Bible’s every contention.
Thousands of scientists? Hardly. After that he tells us that radiometric dating techniques are flawed, because they’re “based on assumptions that cannot be known.” Expanding on that, he says:
There are hundreds of times indicators for the earth that are much more reliable, but never make it into the text books as they show a young age for the earth. A few of these include: the amount of dust on the moon; the size of the sun; the amount of salt in the ocean; and the decline of the earth’s magnetic field. To see hundreds more, go to [link to a creationist website]:
All of David’s “science” is debunked at the TalkOrigins Index to Creationist Claims. You can find each of his arguments there if you need to. He continues:
I organize free quarterly creation science seminars in the Prescott area. Our last seminar speaker has a Ph.D. in microbiology and taught at major secular universities. The speaker for the fall seminar has a Ph.D. in physics, and has done major work at Sarnia nuclear labs [Huh?] and has written many books. These scientists are at the top of their fields [Hee hee!], and there are thousands of others like them, so why do we indoctrinate and brainwash our students in the government schools by presenting only one side of this issue as a fact?
Why indoctrinate and brainwash students? Because Darwinists are child molesters, and they want your children to be with them in the Lake of Fire.
David finishes with details of his next “science seminar”:
Come find out the science that shows the universe to be young and why it is important to Christians at the fall seminar on Oct. 15 from 9 to noon at the Hillside Community Church [details omitted].
Well, dear reader, if you’re going to be in Prescott this weekend, this is your big chance. Don’t miss it!
