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 Gordon. Excerpts from his letter will be enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary and some bold font for emphasis. Here we go!
It is a crying shame that evolution is now taught in the schools. I have researched creation versus evolution for many years now and there is conclusive evidence that evolution is a myth.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Great start! Then he says:
The God of the Bible is the Creator of all the universe; that cannot be denied when you see the wonders of His creation like the animals, birds, sea creatures and insects and how perfectly they are created to survive and how they adapt so perfectly to their environments.
Uh huh. See Evolution: the Biosphere and the Shopping Mall. After that he tells us:
It is shocking that religious education has been taken out of the schools and children are taught the lies of evolution. Young people who are not taught the truth that comes from Jesus will only make wrong choices when they grow older. This is evident when you look at the huge crime rate and drug problems of today as compared to the 1920s, 1930s when creation was taught in the schools and there was a very low crime rate and no drug problems.
[*Groan*] Gordon continues:
There has to be a life after we leave this earth otherwise there would be no such thing as right or wrong.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Let’s read on:
The theory of evolution and the big bang theory has to be a lie because God created every creature, tree and plant so perfectly. [Except for those that suffer extinction, etc.] With a big bang there would be no Creator to make creation so perfect and every living creature and plant would be haphazard, distorted, unable to function and unable to adapt to their very complex environments.
Gordon isn’t done yet. Here’s another excerpt:
How does evolution explain the stars and outer space for instance, where did they come from? They had to be created. Things don’t just appear from nothing.
Hey — good point! Darwin didn’t explain the stars. And now we come to the end:
The God of the Bible is the truth and God is the creator of all the beauty around us. I just wish and pray that teachers would stop teaching the lies of evolution to children.
Wow! That letter was amazing. As our title suggests, it reminds us of Poe’s Law, which is familiar to those who follow The Controversy between evolution and creationism. It states: “Without a winking smiley or other blatant display of humor, it is impossible to create a parody of fundamentalism that someone won’t mistake for the real thing.” But this letter comes from Australia, birthplace of ol’ Hambo, the underside of the flat Earth. So Gordon may be serious.
