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 three initials are W.C.K., so we don’t know what to call him. Excerpts from his letter will be enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary, some bold font for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections [that look like this]. Here we go!
Just recently on the Sky News channel I saw an item where Sir David Attenborough was walking with her Majesty Queen Elizabeth. I think it was in the palace garden. It is amazing these two people who represent two different belief systems have such a relationship that they seem to have. I think both parties should be commended.
They have different belief systems? Well, David Attenborough is known to be an opponent of creationism. We don’t know the queen’s beliefs. The letter-writer explains:
The Queen is the head of the Church of England (so I believe), the Queen of England and head of many Commonwealth countries including Australia, even though it may be in name only. England, Australia and America, as Christian nations, have truly been blessed because their leaders and forefathers believed in an intelligent creator God, who gave us his word and his only Son to build our nations and our lives upon.
[*Groan*] Regarding America, see Is America a “Christian Nation”? As for England and Australia, they aren’t theocracies, and the Anglicans don’t oppose science. Anyway, then the letter-writer says:
To throw away our belief in God as Creator and that we haven’t been created in the image of God, as the Bible says, then these great nations are on shaky ground.
Ooooooooooooh! Shaky ground! After that he tells us:
As Sir David Attenborough and the Queen continued their walk, Sir David noticed a sundial partly shaded by a tree, that therefore would not have shown the correct time. The Queen was quick to say it should be shifted into the sun’s light again. I believe there could be a prophetic message here.
A prophetic message? What could it be? He continues:
For the sundial to function there has to be certain scientific principles and laws. Where did the laws that govern the ‘Big Bang’, heat, energy, power of the atom just to name a few, come from?
Ooooooooooooh! A most profound question! Let’s read on:
Louis Pasteur demonstrated many years ago that life only comes from life.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! We debunk that old clunker in Common Creationist Claims Confuted — if you go there, scroll doen to “Law of Biogenesis.” Another excerpt:
Man has yet to create a rock or life out of nothing and if he did it would show it took an intelligent brain to do so.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Intelligent design wins whether we can create life or not. Here’s more:
The complexity of the living cell, with its genetic code in the DNA, is a miracle in itself. Why male and female? Why can a man and a woman expect to have a baby human and not a baby ape?
No comment is necessary. And now we come to the end:
When the God of evolution dethrones the God of creation then something needs to be said. Maybe it’s time to check our sundial and have a long hard look at time, hoping that it is not past midnight.
We don’t know what to make of this one. Maybe the letter-writer’s problem is that he’s on the underside of the flat Earth.
