There’s only one more to go until we reach 1,000 of these things. Today’s letter-to-the-editor appears at the website of what seems to be the Daily Courier of Prescott, Arizona. It’s titled The Case for Creation Science, and the newspaper has 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. He has the same name as the head of something called the Prescott Creation Society, but we can’t find their website so we’re not certain it’s the same guy. Anyway, the letter-writer’s first name is David. 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!
Creation science is a huge topic, drawing from the 200 branches of science, archeology, history, logic and the Bible. [Wowie, 200 branches of science!] This makes it inexhaustible, which makes it hard to know where to start. We’ll start this series of articles [A series!] on the basic laws of science which the story of evolution violates.
This is really exciting! David says:
Evolution theory has no answers and no evidence to support it. [Gasp!] The law of Biogenesis states that life can only come from preexisting life. Christianity or Intelligent Design (ID) has a preexisting cause – an all powerful God, but evolution theory does not.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! David begins with imaginary law of biogenesis, which we debunked in Common Creationist Claims Confuted. We’re off to a great start! After that he tells us:
The first law of Thermodynamics states that matter cannot be created or destroyed. Christianity & ID gets around this law by the intervention of an all-powerful God that made the natural laws and who is the creator of all matter, but evolution theory breaks this law. [Gasp! Evolution breaks the law!] The 2nd law of Thermodynamics states that heat and useable energy is dissipating, which causes everything to run down and fall apart (or die) over time. This law is why everything gets worse over time, but evolution theory states that everything gets better over time, even though this defies this law and everything that we observe. [Evolution breaks another law!]
Powerful stuff, huh? David continues:
The law of Cause and Effect [Huh?] states that every effect must have a cause that is equal to or greater than the effect. Evolution theory has no answer for what caused the universe, but Christianity and ID have the only possible answer that can account for the massive effect of the universe – an all-powerful God.
Wowie — evolution can’t explain what caused the universe! David’s letter is amazing! Let’s read on:
The law of the Conservation of Angular Momentum states that when matter that is spinning explodes, all particles coming off the matter will spin in the same direction the exploding matter was spinning. When we look at the moons, we see many going in the opposite direction, planets and even galaxies going in the “wrong” direction. Evolution can not break this law, but an all powerful God can. You see that evolution theory violates these basic laws of known science and Christianity or ID do not.
We’re shocked — shocked! Evolution can’t explain Retrograde motion. Darwin was a fool! Another excerpt:
Lastly, evolution theory is not even science, because all empirical science must follow the scientific method, which consists of: 1) making an observation; 2) forming an hypothesis based on your observation; 3) performing experiments to try to prove your hypothesis correct; 4) having repeatable results. The only part of the scientific method that evolution theory does is making a hypothesis, and they have made plenty of these, which are changing all the time.
This is absolutely devastating! How could anyone be an evolutionist? Here’s our last excerpt:
So my question is, why are we teaching a faulty hypothesis in the public schools that goes against the known laws of science as if it were a fact? Why don’t we show the students any of the mountain of REAL scientific evidence that prove evolution theory to be wrong? When you teach faulty hypotheses as fact, this you are not educating students, you are brainwashing them! Our school districts are afraid to take on the system that promotes this lie, but I challenge them to do so. It is what’s best for our students, and the right thing to do. In future articles we will explore mountain of scientific evidence that mitigates [Mitigates?] against the story of evolution.
The final paragraphs of David’s letter promote local creationist events and a tour of the Grand Canyon. You can click over there to read that stuff if you like. We’re outta here!
