This year’s last letter-to-the-editor appears in the Lethbridge Herald of Lethbridge, in the Canadian province of Alberta. It’s titled Dinosaurs were still around 4,000 years ago, 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. This is his second appearance in our collection. The first was #777: Canadian Genius. Excerpts from his new letter will be enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary and some bold font for emphasis. Here we go!
Because the word “dinosaur” was not invented till 1842 by Sir Richard Owen, dinosaurs originally had names like Behemoth and Leviathan.
The Wikipedia write-up on Behemoth says it’s “a beast mentioned in Job 40:15–24. Suggested identities range from a mythological creature to an elephant, hippopotamus, rhinoceros, or buffalo. Some Young Earth creationists believe it to be a description of a dinosaur.” Their article on Leviathan says it’s “a sea monster referenced in the Hebrew Bible in the Book of Job, Psalms, and Isaiah.”
After giving us some bible quotes about those two monsters, John asks:
Where does the idea come from that dinosaurs died out 75 million years ago when they were still here 4,000 years ago?
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! This subject has come up before — see ICR: Maximum Dinosaur Derangement Achieved! Then he asks another powerful question:
Or about the ancient coelacanth fish fossils; this fish evolved about 400 million years ago (?), became extinct 66 million years ago, but are caught again once in a while since 1938. Now they call it a living fossil, and there are many more living fossils.
How is it possible that evolution is taught in schools when there is no proof at all?
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Here comes the best part:
On my last letter about evolution-creation I got a response from an atheist-evolution website; their response was “Bwahahahahaha.” Was this really the best answer they have to prove me wrong and they are right?
It seemed appropriate at the time. It still does. And as we’ve stated several times before, although creationists equate science with atheism, this isn’t an atheist blog. John disagrees. He ends his letter with this:
Well, there is no proof for the evolution theory anyway, but they don’t want to believe in creation, because they don’t want the Creator.
That was a splendid year-end letter. Thanks, John!
