Today’s second letter-to-the-editor appears in the Curry Coastal Pilot of Brookings, Oregon. The letter is titled Life from life , and it’s the second item at that link. 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. He has “Dr.” in front of his name, but we can’t figure out who he is. His first name is Steve. Excerpts from his letter will be enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary and some bold font for emphasis. Here we go!
A federal judge in Kitzmiller v. Dover decided to censor what you may read and determined public school students are not allowed to know about intelligent design.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! He’s referring, of course, to Kitzmiller v. Dover Area School District. But kiddies are free to go on the internet and read all the creationist garbage they want. Then he says:
The truth is that Louis Pasteur proved the law of biogenesis that life comes from life.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! That’s debunked under the heading “Law of Biogenesis” in Common Creationist Claims Confuted. The fun is just beginning. Steve tells us:
Materialist evolution is a nonstarter because it cannot explain its own existence. Variations are possible within a species, but microevolution is limited within kinds or breeds. Macroevolution or the creation of a new breed through evolutions has never been witnessed.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! That’s the micro-macro mambo, also debunked at the last link we gave you. Steve continues:
Mutations are copying errors and are not a path to complex systems. There are no known examples of a mutation adding complexity.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! See New ‘Information’ from Gene Duplication. Let’s read on:
There is a limit beyond which something is for all practical purposes impossible. Generally, anything with less than 1 chance in 10 to the 50th power of occurring randomly is essentially impossible. The chance of a living cell occurring by random chance would be 1 of 10 to the 33,000th power, which is far beyond zero.
Wowie! 1 in 1033,000? The odds against life keep getting bigger. And now we come to the end:
Science students have a right to know that life cannot occur without intelligent design. Life was either created by God or evolved from non-living matter by accident. There is no third choice. Students have the right to hear the facts and make up their own mind.
These letters get better all the time. Way to go, Steve!
