Today’s letter-to-the-editor appears in The Guardian of Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Canada. It’s titled Missing links still missing, and the newspaper doesn’t seem to have 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 Ron. Excerpts from his letter will be enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary and some bold font for emphasis. Here we go!
You can lead a horse to water, but you cannot make him drink. Evolution science speaks of generalities and millions of years of evolution with no concrete dates or exact science. The missing links still remain missing.
He’s right! There are no specific dates for any of that evolution stuff. And those missing links are a real scandal. Then Ron says:
The Bible on the other hand has exact dates and can be traced back in history with real events showing the way.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Exact dates! After that he tells us:
Now there are ministers who do not believe the first 11 chapters of Genesis but believe the rest. How unbelievable is that? Who ever heard of building a house on sand? These ministers have very little faith.
Yes, it’s terrible! Ron continues:
Doug Perry in his letter to the editor December 9 cannot get his facts straight. “Is Genesis History” was produced by Thomos [sic] Purifoy Jr. an independent filmmaker. Doug makes broad false statements (none of the “creation” scientists work can pass peer review). Doug does not know how science actually works and the biggest brainwashing in modern history (evolution) is perpetuated by science.
We can’t find Doug’s letter, but Wikipedia has a write-up on Is Genesis History?, a creationist film directed by Thomas Purifoy, Jr. Let’s read on:
Doug you are not alone in your beliefs. Please read ” The Emperor’s New Clothes.” Evolution is the emperor’s new clothes.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! That’s a new one. Another excerpt:
The evolution bandwagon is about to crash and mankind, who has rejected God for science, has no excuse.
Brace yourself for the crash, dear reader. And now we come to the end:
I suppose Doug doesn’t believe Jesus Christ was an actual historical person. We celebrate his birthday December 25 (the Saviour of the world.) Merry Christmas.
Hey, yeah — if we celebrate the birthday, then of course he existed. Great letter, Ron!
