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 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!
John begins with straightforward answers to two questions which he puts in quote marks:
“Is nature purposeless, a product of random chance?” The laws of nature have a law-giver (God). “Can non-living materials create living things (spontaneous generation)?” Nope.
Then, having declared what is obviously The Truth™, he says:
Yet, our schools basically teach that they do when they teach molecules-to-man “evolution.”
Egad — this is an outrage! After that he tells us:
Creationists such as myself [we already guessed that] believe in “natural selection”’ and mutation.
Really? Then what’s the problem? John continues:
But natural selection selects from what already exists.
Yes, of course it does. What’s going on here? Let’s read some more:
Survival of the fittest isn’t the same as arrival of the fittest.
Aha! It’s arrival of the fittest that’s the problem. Here’s more:
Mutation is a copying error in the DNA; life is going downhill, not uphill. Molecules-to-man “evolution” is dead in the water.
Now we understand! And with that all cleared up, we come to the end:
When we teach one view of origins, rather than an alternative view (special creation), it’s no wonder our kids are being indoctrinated. Does anyone else care?
Well, dear reader, John certainly cares. Do you?
