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 Bill. 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!
The word science simply means knowledge. [Huh?] The Darwinian atheists have hijacked the field of science and redefined science to mean naturalism. Naturalism means that the only explanation for the universe, humanity, all plants and animals is by natural processes.
That’s how ol’ Hambo defines science, and he does it because it’s nearly meaningless — see Creationism and Science. The National Academy of Sciences defines science as: “The use of evidence to construct testable explanations and predictions of natural phenomena, as well as the knowledge generated through this process.” Anyway, Bill says:
Basically, the religion of atheism [Hee hee!] is the only explanation for our existence. All their scientific endeavors are already foregone conclusions because their definition of science is exclusively naturalism.
Bill is definitely a fan of Hambo’s website. Then he tells us:
The Big Bang philosophy is an atheistic explanation of the universe. Ninety-six percent of the stuff (dark matter and dark energy), we do not know what it is. Based on this fact, it is ludicrous to say the Big Bang Theory is based on fact.
Right — no facts. Genesis is so much better! Bill continues:
Another ludicrous non-scientific theory is that life came from non-life through natural processes. Also, there is no evidence in the fossil record of molecules to man based on natural processes. [Groan!] The atheistic worldview is a fairy tale.
That’s more Hambo stuff, including the “molecules to man” expression. Let’s read on:
Biblical Christianity is redemption, reconciliation and restoration to our creator. There is no conflict between my Biblical beliefs (Genesis) and science.
How can Bill’s religion conflict with science when it’s based on no observable facts? It’s just something that’s out there — way out there. Another excerpt:
The atheists have not disproven God and the Bible. I am vehemently opposed to atheism and unproven atheistic philosophies masquerading as science.
Science is all about observing and explaining reality. It doesn’t worry about disproving fairies, leprechauns or a thousand other folk-beliefs for which there is no evidence. But wait — Bill has evidence, and he tells us what it is:
Romans 1:20: “For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities — his eternal power and divine nature — have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.”
Can’t argue with that! And now we come to the end:
By the way, everyone believes in God at the moment of death, even the godless unrepentant atheist.
We haven’t died yet, so we can’t argue with that either. Great letter, Bill!
