Because the writer isn’t a politician, preacher, or other public figure, we won’t embarrass or promote her by using her full name. Her first name is Doris. Excerpts from her letter will be enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary, some bold font for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]. Here we go!
Deep within our nation’s venerated “halls of ivy” lurk some ideas that are anything but true. So as school days are upon us there is need for a call to vigilance lest truth becomes lost in the shuffle of feet going from class to class to earn treasured grades needed for a bright future. Ideas have consequences.
Egad! What truth is getting lost? Doris says:
The truths in danger are those of hope in the eternal God, who calls us and equips us for a journey of opportunity where we learn to sift good from evil and win eternal rewards through faith in him.
Jeepers — she’s right! They don’t teach that in school. Doris tells us:
Richard Dawkins, the ardent evolutionist, when cornered [Cornered!] for not being able to accept a universe planned and designed by an intelligent being, in defense of his godless philosophy said, “If there is a God why hasn’t he revealed himself?” Such ignorance questions Dawkins’ education, for God has from the beginning been an ardent revealer of his plans and purposes for those he loves. The zenith of his revelation came through Jesus who said, in seeing me you have seen the Father.
Dawkins is a fool! Doris continues:
Among other places, the god of this world, Satan himself [Gasp!], lurks in the false ideas that rule out God in our educational institutions. One of this false god’s biggest ploys is the idea that science and religion must be kept separate. If so, there would have been billions of years of death and dying before God pronounced that all his creation was very good.
Death before creation? That’s impossible! Let’s read on:
Science and theology are inseparable. [So true!] Sin caused death after perfect creation, not before. [Right!] God and his works of creation involved designing the human body as a machine far and above that of the animal world in importance, including a spirit and a soul that has volition, not just instinct. DNA shows us that there was never a “simple cell.” While there are some mutations, they are limited within each species; for God created everything after its kind.
Doris speaks The Truth™! Another excerpt:
A few years ago upon entering the Burke Museum near the University of Washington I was faced with the sign that read, “If you have a backbone you descended from a fish.” Yet, in all the specimens there were no links to humanity. They were all fish.
No mermaid fossils? Stupid museum! Here’s more
At Walmart, or on the internet, you can find a book for about $4 called “Eternity in their Hearts” by veteran missionary Don Richardson. Please read this, especially if you happen to take anthropology at Centralia College.
Here’s the book at Amazon. Centralia College is a two-year community college in Doris’ home town. We assume the ol’ devil is polluting their anthropology courses.
And now we come to the end:
Richardson’s extensive world research indicates that God’s revelation of himself existed from the beginning but was lost because civilizations rejected it and failed to pass it on. Creation is as simple as this: God spoke and it was done and he is speaking yet to those who will seek, search for and listen to him.
So there you are, dear reader. Make of it what you will.
