Today’s letter-to-the-editor appears in The Gleaner published in Henderson, Kentucky, and we learned about it through the diligent work of one of our clandestine operatives, code-named Blue Grass.
The letter is titled Where are those fossils that prove evolution?, and the newspaper has a comments section.
Because the writer isn’t a politician, preacher, or other public figure, we won’t embarrass or promote him by using his full name. After Googling around, we learned that he may be a Chrysler dealer, but that doesn’t qualify for full-name treatment. He doesn’t give us his first name, only his initials, so we’ll refer to him as WK. Excerpts from his letter will be enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary and some bold font for emphasis. Here we go!
After some opening paragraphs in which he dismisses the work of paleontologists as “a lot of theory, imagination and no real evidence,” he says:
Charles Darwin, 1859, gave up because of a lack of evidence [Hee hee!] and that problem still exists today. No fossil in transition from one species to another has ever been found even though if evolution is a fact, there should be thousands upon thousands and yet, there are none.
As we always do when a creationists makes such a claim, we’ll link to Wikipedia’s ever-growing List of transitional fossils. Then WK says:
The Bible, about seven thousand years ago in the book of Genesis, told us that any evolution would be within each species and until now, that is the way it has been.
You think that was good? Wait ’til you see this:
Sound of Music star Julie Andrews sang: Nothing can come from nothing, ever could.
The letter is full of gems. How about this:
Evidence, where is the evidence? A plowboy with a Bible has more factual, provable knowledge of life, now and hereafter, than all of the evolutionists that ever lived.
Then he mentions a favorite of ours:
Isaiah 40:22, Earth is round, has always been round. What took us so long to find this out?
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! We quoted dozens of flat-Earth declarations in the bible, and Isaiah 40:22 too, in The Earth Is Flat!
WK’s next paragraph is a biggie. Virtually every sentence is a gem:
Design, design, design, universe, life, no new creation. Where is the missing link? There should have been thousands upon thousands, but nothing. All of recorded history has never provided us with one dead matter creating life. Planet Earth hangs in space, attached to nothing as do stars and all other planets. Gravity was there before Newton discovered it. Jupiter is our shield from space trash. Evolution? I don’t think so. Belief is not fact. Earth takes more than 24 hours to rotate, no life. Any slight change in the universe and no life. Evolution? I don’t think so. The Bible is full of facts, scientific, medical, etc. recorded thousands of years before man discovered them. Evolution? I don’t think so.
That was good! Now we’ll skip to the end:
I could write a book because there is so much more, but it would go unread. Maybe you will read one page. Study will convince you. Judgment awaits.
And that’s how it is in Kentucky. Ol’ Hambo chose his location well.
