This is all we could find today. The title is Made by Design. It appears to be a preacher’s letter, but our guess is that he couldn’t get it published anywhere, so he paid to have it appear in the Voice of the Valley of Maple Valley, Washington. They have a letter-to-the-editor section, but at the end of this one it says “PAID MESSAGE.”
Unless the letter-writer is a politician, preacher, or other public figure, we won’t embarrass or promote him by using his full name. Today we’ve got a preacher — at least we think we do, but his name doesn’t appear anywhere. At the end of the letter it says:
Would you like to know your Creator? We would love to introduce you. Call us at [deleted], or visit us at Taylor Creek Church. You may also join us each Sunday, 9 AM for Sunday school, and 10:15 AM for Worship. We are located at [address deleted].
Their pastor’s name is Jason Katen. We assume he wrote this thing, but we can’t be certain. Anyway, we’ll give you a few excerpts from the church’s paid letter, enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary, and some bold font for emphasis. Here we go!
There is no greater evidence for God than life. For decades Christians have pointed to the creation as evidence of a Master Designer whom the Bible says created all things – Genesis 1. On the other hand, those who don’t believe in God, or reject Him, have for decades proclaimed that science would settle the issue concerning creation, and do away with the need for God.
Jeepers — this controversy has been going on for decades! Then the rev says:
Where do we stand today? The more scientists study creation, the more evidence there is that we are fearfully and wonderfully made by an “intelligent designer.” In fact, it has been stated that for every door science opens, it reveals ten yet unopened doors. In other words, the deeper they dig, the more overwhelming and marvelous things become.
Indeed. The more we learn, the more we are impressed by the evidence of Oogity Boogity! The rev continues:
Even leading proponents of evolution have to admit that living things give the appearance of having been designed for a purpose.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! It’s the Watchmaker analogy. Let’s read on:
One of the doors that has been opened is the ability to investigate life at the molecular level. The more scientists learn about what makes us tick, the more wonderful things get.
[*Begin Drool Mode*] Ooooooooooooh! [*End Drool Mode*] Then he quotes someone named Hunt:
The information contained in DNA the size of a pinhead would fill a stack of books 500 times as high as the distance from earth to the moon! It would take tens of thousands of desktop computers to store and process that amount of data.
[*Begin Drool Mode*] Ooooooooooooh! [*End Drool Mode*] After giving us that stunning information, the rev declares:
That’s a lot to just happen by chance!
No doubt, dear reader, you’re as impressed as we are. And now we come to the end:
Truly we have been “fearfully and wonderfully made”. The more I look at life, the more I worship my Lord and Savior who created all things, and the more peace and rest I have. What about you?
Good, huh? We can’t figure out why the rev had to pay to have this letter published. His wisdom should be in every school’s textbooks.
