Today’s letter-to-the-editor appears in the Bureau County Republican, a bi-weekly publication in Princeton, Illinois. It’s titled The missing links, and the newspaper has a comments feature — with no comments so far.
Because today’s 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 Ted. Excerpts from his letter will be enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary and some bold font for emphasis. Here we go!
The very first verse of the Bible states: “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” The theory of evolution puts forth: In the beginning there was nothing; there was no time, no matter, no space, no intelligence, nothing. And out of nothing, out of nowhere, without intelligence came everything.
Yup — that’s that the theory of evolution says. Ted knows his stuff! Then he says:
Do you remember being told fairytales when you were young? What are the missing links in these two sentences? Intelligence itself is one of them. Logic, reason, and common sense are missing too.
[*Curmudgeon has to re-set his irony meter*] After that great beginning, Ted tells us:
A famous evolutionist was once asked, “Where did the Big Bang come from?” Gary Parker shares the evolutionist’s response. “You know; if somebody asks you where mass energy came from, just ask them where God came from.” Gary said, “I think he really said something much more meaningful than he thought. Either mass energy is eternal, or God is eternal. Well, science has taught us a lot about mass energy. One of the things is that it wears out. Mass energy being eternal doesn’t make sense at all. God being eternal does make sense.”
We don’t know who Gary Parker is. Did he say mass and energy wear out, or is that Ted’s contribution? Doesn’t matter. Ted continues:
Things do not make themselves. Something as simple as a tapestry shows the creativeness of its creator. Before there could be a bridge there had to be an architect designer. [Ted gives a few other examples of the same.]
Makes you think, doesn’t it? A tapestry needs a creator. Therefore … . Let’s read on:
The first law of thermodynamics and the second law of thermodynamics show the foolishness of evolution. So often the focus on missing links is on the molecule to man foolish theory. But what animal did the hummingbird evolve from a cow, a platypus, a skunk, a giraffe, a mosquito, a hippopotamus? Evolution theories have millions of missing links because there is no evidence of one kind of anything turning into another kind.
Ted’s right, you know. The hummingbird didn’t evolve from a cow. Another excerpt:
What are the missing links in our government, our school systems, our churches, our relationships, our work places? Are they not grace, truth, love, holiness, moral integrity, the principles taught in the Scriptures?
Yes — those are the missing links! Here’s more
All of man’s complex transportation systems do not compare to the complex creation of the universe with all its diversity created by the supreme creator who has revealed Himself through nature and Scriptures.
He’s right again! The interstate highway system doesn’t compare to the universe. Hey — get this:
We observe changes within a kind but never one kind of anything changing into another kind. Evolution is a false theory with destructive consequences. It is not observable, repeatable, testable, empirical science.
This letter is one of the best! And now we come to the end:
Why then, if 75 percent of Americans identify with a Christian religion do we have a secular school system that adamantly opposes God, Creation and the teaching of Christian principles?
You can’t answer Ted’s question, can you, dear reader?
