Today’s letter-to-the-editor — the first suitable for our collection this year — appears in the Lansing State Journal of Lansing, the Michigan state capital. It’s titled Teach kids to not become fools. It’s the third of four letters at that link, 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 him by using his full name. His first name is Sam. Excerpts from his letter will be enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary and some bold font for emphasis. Here we go!
With God out of schools, children are taught to become fools: “The fool has said in his heart [not by evidences] there is no God,” Psalm 14:1. [Bracketed material in Sam’s letter.]
Verily, that’s what it says in the Good Book. Then Sam declares:
Atheism is without evidence!
Aaaargh!! That’s a mind-bender. Why does Sam say that? He explains:
Why do geologists not even find remains of one animal slowly, step by step evolving into a different kind of animal?
Wow — he’s right! There is no such fossil! After that he tells us:
How can sperm or seed be an accident of nature? A seed can become a fruit tree. A sperm can become an animal or human. Each has within it such intricacies that people cannot even duplicate contents within a tiny seed.
He’s right again! Sam continues:
Unlike evolution, God, in Bible and nature, provides all truth! He is the creator of all, as evidenced above and as evidenced by Bible prophecies, some written many years beforehand: always perfectly fulfilled!
This guy is a genius! Let’s read on:
What about the sun? It’s exactly were it must be to sustain life on earth!
Yes! No one can deny it! The letter ends with some belated advice about how to spend Christmas:
Christmas vacation: Parents, how wise to study Genesis 1 and Romans 1 with your children: how and why not to become fools!
The new year has only just begun dear reader. Perhaps this was an omen of even more wonderful letters to come.
