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 Leonard. Excerpts from his letter will be enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary and some bold font for emphasis. Here we go!
Leonard begins with a scripture quote:
Psalm 14:1 – The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.”
Leonard ain’t no fool, and his letter proves it. He says:
When you look up into the sky at the clouds, you may say, “Look at that cloud. Doesn’t it look kinda like a fish?” Or maybe it looks like a person’s head. This can be easily written off as something that happened by chance.
Or maybe you’re looking at the side of a mountain and say, “Doesn’t that look like a man’s nose? And below that, his chin?” This too can easily be said to be something that happened just by chance over time, through wind/rain/erosion.
Okay, but so what? Then he gives us a different example:
But when you’re in South Dakota, looking at Mount Rushmore, you instinctively know this was created by intelligent design.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! That’s a favorite example of the Discoveroids — see Mt. Rushmore Is Designed, Therefore … Leonard doesn’t stop with that. He gives us yet another example of design:
Or when you see a grandfather clock or a car engine. And you know that no matter how many years you give it, there’s no way it could have created itself, just by chance, over time. Not in a million (or trillion) years.
[*Begin Drool Mode*] Ooooooooooooh! [*End Drool Mode*] Leonard is using his design intuition. After that he tells us:
The human eye has 70 million cones/rods/nerves/blood vessels. How many parts to an engine or clock? A few hundred, maybe?
Wowie — the eye has so many more parts than a clock! It must be designed too. Now Leonard comes to the point:
Yet atheists like Jim Walters [probably the writer of an earlier letter-to-the-editor] say we humans and the many other very complex creations just happened by chance over time.
We’re complex, so we must be designed. It’s undeniable! Leonard thinks that the earlier letter-writer is an idiot! He declares:
Jim, you’re that fool God speaks of, the one standing in the crowd at Mount Rushmore, saying, “Wow! Can you all believe that just by chance, over time, through years of erosion, those look like some of our past presidents?!”
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Now we come to the end:
And here you though we Christians believed a in fairy tale.
Leonard knows that evolution is a fairy tale — and now you do too, dear reader.
