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 Phil. This isn’t his first appearance in our collection. The last time was #792: The No-Brainer. A lot of what he says today is the same stuff he said in his earlier letter, for example:
One of the publications I subscribe to is the prestigious “Science” magazine published weekly by the American Association for Advancement of Science. A lot of smart people publish their works in it.
But Phil’s new letter also has some original material. Excerpts will be enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary and some bold font for emphasis. Here we go!
The magazine seems hell-bent on pushing macro-evolution in almost every issue, no matter how stupid it looks. The same can be said for young age versus old age of the Earth. There is actually more evidence for a young Earth than for a billions of years old Earth, yet that evidence is never presented.
Phil said that before too, but it was worth repeating. Then he says:
Ditto for heliocentricity versus geocentricity; does the earth go around the sun, or does the sun go around the earth? There still is no solid proof that the Earth goes around the sun; but it is still taught in schools as dogmatic fact. Why?
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Phil continues:
Same kind of sophistry/cover-up applies to man-made global warming; nothing solid, just a lot of endless speculative propaganda.
Why does Phil subscribe to Science if its contents are so wretched? Anyway, then he ends his letter almost the same way he ended the last one:
The education establishment today is supposedly teaching kids about critical thinking. And they probably do, just as long as they don’t get too bold and start thinking outside the confines of the “politically correct science box,” and thereby discover the many faceted world of “fake science.”
You gotta admire Phil. He’s not only a creationist and a climate change denier, but he’s also a solar system denier. And he has the courage to expose Science magazine as a heliocentric propaganda rag. Great letter!
