Today’s letter-to-the-editor appears at the website of Forum Communications which owns TV and radio stations in Fargo, North Dakota. The letter is titled Secular humanists are blinded by their beliefs despite flaws, and they don’t seem to have a comments section.
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 Mike. 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!
Has anyone ever noticed that advocates for the man-made climate change theory have a lot in common with those who believe in evolution? [No, really?] Both rely on many of the same underpinnings to prove their system of beliefs. Both would claim a “consensus” of scientists agree that their theory has been validated using proper scientific methods.
Yeah, all of those creeps say things like that. What does Mike think? He says:
However, projections and estimates play a crucial role in formulating their scientific hypothesis. So, like pealing back an onion, the flaws in their theories can be exposed once you begin to examine them.
Wowie — Mike is going to expose their flaws. This is great! He continues:
Their theories rely on certain half truths that appear convincing, ignore important variables, and make assumptions to ensure the desired outcome of their experiments. For example, there is no denying that earth’s temperature has changed from time to time over the years, but there is no proof that man is entirely responsible.
Amazing! What about evolution? Mike tells us:
Evolution points to the ability of animals to adapt and improve themselves over time as their proof. This is called “micro evolution” and is certainly true. However, despite the many attempted hoaxes [Gasp!], there has never been any evidence of the so-called, “missing link,” that would prove a species can successfully change or mutate into another species.
We’re shocked — shocked! Let’s read on:
The theory of evolution relies on the assumption that a “consensus” of scientists think the earth is really, really old, so that is why you can’t see any evidence of inter-species change. In other words, don’t trust your lying eyes. In addition, evolution advocates never mention the Second Law of Thermodynamics: All things are in a constant state of decay. This makes their creation, or “macro,” evolutionary theory impossible.
Egad, our professors lied to us! Another excerpt:
Now, all of this information has been known for many years, so what gives? Why do so many people cling so rigidly to their beliefs in support of evolution and man-made climate change, despite its many flaws? [Why?] I would argue that it is due to their religious viewpoint, or lack thereof.
Yes, that explains it! Skipping over a rant about secular humanism, we’re told:
The Christian view, on the other hand, is that we should use proper conservation efforts to manage the resources of this planet that God has given us, but we don’t worship the earth and its creatures. And, what everyone should understand by now, is that the primary goal of the evolution theory has always been to take God out of the picture.
Yeah, that was Darwin’s lifelong obsession. And now we come to the end:
If there is no God, you see, then there is no one to hold you accountable for your sins, and there is certainly no need for a Savior.
That was an incredible letter. Mike understands everything. Now you do too, dear reader.
