Creationist Wisdom #768: The Devil’s Lie

Today’s letter-to-the-editor appears in the Democrat News of Fredericktown, Missouri. It’s titled Prayer is first priority. The newspaper has a comments feature.

Because today’s writer isn’t a politician, preacher, or other public figure, we won’t embarrass or promote her by using her full name. Her first name is Jennie, and we’ve written about two of her letters before — see #530: More Proof of God and before that #361: No Compromises. At the end of her letters, the newspaper says: “Jennie is a long-time resident of Fredericktown, an eclectic gatherer of stories, information, and experiences to share with whoever would like to read them.” Excerpts from her latest letter will be enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary and some bold font for emphasis. Here we go!

I haven’t soapboxed about evolution and spontaneous generation for awhile; nor about how well these theories are working for the evil one who works to destroy us. He is one bad dude, but he can’t take all the credit. Many people have helped him. Did you notice how fast the USA got the place wiped clean of God’s name and, of anything that even smacks of God.

Egad — evolution is the work of “the evil one”! Then she says:

That is what the teaching of “started with a spark, and spent billions of years for that spark to work its way through a bunch of animals, and ended up being a human,” is all about. That, very effectively, takes God out of the picture: no God, no Savior, no debt, no absolutes and no hereafter to worry about. We, as a nation, have chosen the complainers and those responsible for doing the actual deed, over God and our Savior, Jesus Christ.

Yup — that’s what evolution is all about, and it’s destroying our nation! After that, Jennie tells us:

As I understand it, the Academy of Science choose the books that will be read and taught in our schools. How did that ever happen? The A.of S. is made up largely by atheists and evolutionists.

Gasp — atheists and evolutionists? What a horrible organization! Wikipedia has a write-up on the Academy of Science, St. Louis, but choosing state textbooks isn’t mentioned. We suspect textbooks are selected by the Missouri State Board of Education, but what do we know?

Jennie describes her education:

I am sorry to say that I never paid much attention to this stuff until late in my life. I remember well the illustrations in my books when I was a kid. Two in particular were the line of figures of a monkey growing on up (and less hairy all the time) into a man, and the other was the stages of an embryo where it looked like animals in each stage before it became a baby. Back then, the teachers chuckled at this nonsense, but who knew the danger of how this was going.

Jennie was fortunate to have such excellent teachers. Let’s read on:

I didn’t fall for the part I got from school, but I did spend a lot of time trying to fit the Bible into National Geographic scenarios about fossils, carbon dating, and light years (yes, I do believe in light years) but God turned the lights on before He created the solar system and He tells us that in heaven we won’t even need a sun.

Jennie believes in light years, but she knows the sun isn’t necessary for light. Now she starts to sum it all up:

Well, we all know about this major lie now, and we are seeing the results shown by apathy toward God, and a harvest of lost souls every day that passes.

Yes, now we know that evolution is a major lie. This is how the letter ends:

Prayer is first priority, but it would be good to find a way to help fight this on the home front: One nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all (knowing that all three of these gifts came only from God and the principles He set forth for us).

Hey — Jennie cites the Pledge — just like the letter-writer in #763: The Theocrat. What a great letter!

  1. Another dimwit who has never really read her book o’BS. Satan is gawd’s servant!!! S/He/IT does as gawd orders. Gawd is the producer of all! It says so in your buyBull! Gawd is a psychotic ahole watching the Truman Show he produced!

  2. “Did you notice how fast the USA got the place wiped clean of God’s name and, of anything that even smacks of God.”

    Sorry, Jennie. God’s all over coinage, paper money, state mottoes, the end of every presidential speech, and all those God Bless America decals. Why, even Congress and state legislatures open sessions with prayer. And, I see churches everywhere! Way to much for me, but apparently not enough for Jennie.

  3. “no hereafter to worry about”
    Such a relief.

    “Prayer is first priority.”
    Suggestion: Jennie should spend all her time she now uses for writing letters for praying instead. The USA and specifically that newspaper will be better off. The only one who will be at a disadvantage is our dear SC, who will have one topic less to write about. Oh – and his fans of course, who will have less material for their mockeries.

    Ah, Jeannie, we know what you are ‘hereafter’. Brownie points from the big guy to ensure you, and only you, get into the hereafter. 🙂

  5. Jennie isn’t a bad writer. I rather like “to soapbox” as a verb. But her ideas leave much to be desired.

    If her teachers “chuckled” at the “nonsense” of evolution and embryology, I wonder what sort of school she attended.

    Prayer is first priority, but it would be good to find a way to help fight this on the home front: One nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all (knowing that all three of these gifts came only from God and the principles He set forth for us).

    Apparently Jennie doesn’t know that “under God” was rammed into the Pledge of Allegiance only in 1954, at the insistence of Cold War zealots who wanted to affirm that America was a God-fearin’ country, unlike the atheist Soviet Union.
