Today’s letter-to-the-editor appears in the National Catholic Register, which describes itself as “America’s most complete and faithful Catholic news source.” The title is De Novo Creation. It’s the first of three letters at that link. They have a comments section, but you have to register to see them.
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 Bruce. The Register‘s website says that copying their material is ”strictly prohibited.” We wouldn’t want to bring their wrath down upon us, so we shall comply. Instead of giving you excerpts from Bruce’s letter, we’ll merely describe what he says — enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary, of course. Here we go!
He begins by boldly proposing a theory to support the de novo creation of Adam and Eve. We’re always interested in new theories, so let’s gather ’round and see what Bruce has to tell us.
His theory is that just as Jesus was supernaturally incarnated in his mother’s womb, so too were Adam and Eve supernaturally created in the Garden of Eden. Hey — that’s quite a theory!
Not only that, but the Garden of Eden was a supernatural place, as was Mary’s virginal womb. Bruce says that his theory explains the de novo creation of Adam and Eve outside the normal laws and operations of biology. In both cases (Adam & Eve and also Jesus), they were 100% created by God.
Wowie — Bruce’s theory explains so much! We regret that we can’t actually quote any of Bruce’s letter, but if you click over to the Register to read it for yourself, you’ll see that his theory explains a couple of other things too. We’re very impressed.
It won’t be long before we’ll be seeing demands that Bruce’s theory should be taught in school along with Darwin’s theory of evolution. Darwin’s theory is totally inadequate to explain the things that Bruce’s theory does, so we can’t imagine that there will be any objections.
