This one is truly amazing. It’s from the creation scientists at the Institute for Creation Research (ICR) — the fountainhead of young-earth creationist wisdom,
Their post it titled Evaluating Evolutionary Claims. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
Hello, my name is Dr. Jerry Bergman. [Hi, Jerry!] I‘m a new member of ICR‘s staff, but I‘m not new to this ministry. I have been reading ICR‘s literature since close to the beginning of the organization.
Can you imagine that? Then he says:
I watched ICR grow and witnessed the good work that it‘s done in the lives of my friends and acquaintances. As a science major in college, this ministry was critical in allowing me to objectively evaluate the many claims my professors made about Darwinism.
Being one of Jerry’s professors must have been, ah … challenging. After that he tells us:
Now, having read Acts & Facts [ICR’s magazine] for several decades [Wow!], I am able to effectively separate the empirical evidence based on science from unjustified extrapolations by Darwinists. This skill is very important no matter what beliefs you take to the table.
And that’s the entire post — except that it ends with this:
Please donate today to support ICR‘s vital work. [Link omitted.]
We wanted to know more about Jerry, so we hunted around and found ICR’s bio page on him. It’s amazing! Here’s what they say about him:
Dr. Jerry Bergman earned three master’s degrees at the Medical College of Ohio and worked full-time on cancer research in the department of experimental pathology. His nine earned degrees include a Ph.D. from Wayne State University, a Ph.D. from Columbia Pacific University, an M.S in Biomedical Science, and a Master of Public Health from the Medical College of Ohio. He taught at the college level for over 40 years and served on undergraduate and graduate faculties at Bowling Green State University, the University of Toledo, and the Medical College of Ohio. Dr. Bergman has over 1,000 publications in science journals and has authored or co-authored over 43 books and monographs. He joined ICR in 2018 as Research Associate. His latest work focuses on genetic entropy and how it confirms the Bible and refutes evolution.
We don’t know what to make of this, but it seems that at last, Jerry is where he belongs.
