Today’s second letter-to-the-editor appears in the Lethbridge Herald of Lethbridge, in the Canadian province of Alberta. It’s titled Evidence counters evolution, and the newspaper has a comments feature.
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 John. Excerpts from his letter will be enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary and some bold font for emphasis. Here we go!
Two hundred years ago nobody had ever heard of the evolution theory, not until Charles Darwin came up with the idea that everything came into existence by itself if you give it millions or billions of years to evolve, include every plant, animal, bird and even man. Now it is being taught in schools as if it is the truth, as if there is solid proof it really happened that way.
Two hundred years ago, Charles Darwin was 8 years old. We like it when the opening paragraph is truly idiotic. Then John says:
Many findings like fossils and different layers in the earth and mountains, and coal and oil deposits can be traced back to a big natural flood disaster, not even that many thousands of years ago.
The idiocy continues! John tells us:
Dinosaur bones have been found with still some soft tissue, supposedly 75 million years old; 4,400 years (from Noah’s flood) makes more sense.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! John is just getting started. This will amaze you:
Human bones found together with dinosaur bones and many other land and sea creatures can be found in fossil graveyards, like in the southern U.S. in the Ashley phosphate beds. It is proof that there must have been a catastrophic flood, and that man and dinosaurs lived and perished at the same time.
Wow! Wikipedia has an article on the Ashley Formation, but they don’t mention human fossils. We don’t find that claim at AIG or ICR either. Oh — it’s mentioned in this book: The Bible Is Right!: About Dinosaurs and Evolution! Let’s read on:
I like this one: live toads and frogs (in hibernation) found encased in limestone that is supposedly millions of years old.
Hibernating toads and frogs encased in limestone — still alive? Fantastic! Another excerpt:
Noah’s ark is where it is supposed to be, and has been on CNN years ago and in National Geographic news, proven according to the measurements. How does a 450-foot-long ship end up near the top of a mountain (Ararat), 4,000 metres above sea level? That is higher than the highest mountain in the Canadian Rockies, Mount Robson.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Noah’s ark has been found on Mt. Ararat! And now we come to the end:
Do evolution believers really think that the human eye evolved or developed by itself?
Well! That was truly an impressive letter.
