Because the writer isn’t a politician, preacher, or other public figure, we won’t embarrass or promote him by using his full name. It appears that he sells coffee and tea, and used to be a Fuller Brush salesman, but that doesn’t qualify for full name treatment. His first name is Ron. We’ve written about his letters before — the last time was a week ago: #1,002: The Only Solution, and before that there was #962: The Insanity of Science. Excerpts from his new letter will be enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary, some bold font for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]. Here we go!
By “are they serious”, I mean do they really in their hearts of hearts, in their innermost rational beings believe the things they teach? I have stated that what Darwinisms, evolution-ism, etc. claims is unknowable. [Gasp!] They have no fossil record for their claims, no positive way to substantiate their billions of years and slow ever-changing processes to work. We only see life coming from life and kind after kind, with no experiments available to show one species could evolve into another.
As with his earlier letters, Ron’s prose style is clumsy and error-riddled, but we won’t bother to call attention to his blunders. There are two many of them. Then he says:
I am posting again in defense of the Bible and creationism to make the rational arguments on the basis of science. (To know or have facts to back up what we believe and teach.) Let me begin with what we know especially in light of the electron microscope and the hidden world of atoms being explored.
You can see atoms with an electron microscope? Wow! Ron tells us about the hidden world of atoms:
1. All matter when broken down to its smallest elements is “energy.” Yes, swirls of what we named “quarks” and what seem to be only wisps of “energy”. Where did energy come from and why is it still present in all organic and inorganic forms of matter? (God who we cannot see “spoke” all things into existence?)
That was Ron’s first big point. Now this:
2. In humans and all living things we have a DNA string that if it could be extracted from every cell in your body would stretch to the moon and back several times. That DNA string contains information (a non-physical element that is a product of a mind. Much like your thoughts.)
We’re not sure what Ron is saying there. The DNA in one cell, if stretched out, would be about 2 meters long. We don’t know why Ron would want to string together the DNA from every cell, but that would indeed be quite long. He continues:
Dr George C. Williams in his book, “The Third Culture” (1994) admits that matter (DNA) and information are not the same thing. The information can only be produced by a “mind” it appears and since the DNA reliably passes on information where did that information initially come from?
Williams was a respected biologist, but we don’t know what he said about DNA and “information.” Ron doesn’t provide any links, and we won’t go hunting around. Hey — he’s still talking about the hidden world of atoms:
3. Irreducible Complexity; [Groan! That’s Discoveroid science. See Irreducible complexity]. Each nucleus in each cell of the human body we now know contains more information the 30 volumes of the Encyclopedia Britannica. That isn’t “all” the cells combined, that is each cell of which there are trillions. (I here invite, implore you to pick up a copy of Michael Behe’s 1990’s book, “Darwin’s Black Box”) Behe is a molecular biologist who lays out clearly what was then known. We know more now.
Michael Behe? BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Let’s read on:
The facts are: We cannot ascribe the complexity in our own bodies, life around us and the inorganic world to blind chance. [Hee hee!] The human eye function which Behe describes brilliantly should make us stand up and sing “How Great Thou Art” We are truly “curiously and wondrously made.”
At last, we come to the end:
This has gotten long [Indeed!], but the points are valid. [Oh yeah!] You can investigate them for yourselves. [We have.] The point is, we need to quit rejecting God, the Bible and the invaluable guide to living He has given us because of a false teaching called Evolution.
That’s it, dear reader. Has Ron convinced you to abandon the false teaching of evolution? If not, then there’s no hope for you. You’ll end up in the Lake of Fire for sure!
