Today’s letter-to-the-editor appears in The Herald of Sharon, Pennsylvania. It’s titled Bible logically explains creation, and it’s the first of three letters at that link. The newspaper has a comments feature, but there aren’t any comments yet.
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 Brian. 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!
I believe science helps our world to advance greatly. As a follower of Jesus Christ, I cannot prove to a secular scientist that God exists, outside of His creation and the Bible. Nonetheless, when you look at the Bible’s historical accounts and prophecies, it’s hard to view them as myth. [Indeed!] I have faith that the Bible is the infallible Word of God.
Brian is a man of faith. Isn’t that wonderful? Then he says:
Interestingly, secular scientists also appear to have great faith: [Huh?] Faith that a single cell, though complex, was created by random chance. Faith in the Big Bang that theorizes the energy/matter/space that exploded (singularity) was thousands of times smaller than a pinhead. Faith to believe that the pinhead exploded 13.7 billion years ago, and out came our vast universe containing billions of galaxies.
Wowie — those secular scientists have a whole lotta faith! After that, Brian tells us:
There are laws of thermodynamics now, but before the “Big Bang” secular science couldn’t explain how energy and matter came into existence. All of that is faith.
Jeepers, those secular scientists have more faith than an ark-load of creationists! Brian continues:
Can something come from nothing? Can A create A? In order for A to create A, then A must exist and A must not exist simultaneously. That is impossible. That is unfounded faith. Did the Supreme Court really believe that?
Brian is a master of syllogisms. Let’s read on:
Genesis teaches that A created B: “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”
Yeah — none of that scientific “A created A” nonsense! And now we come to the end:
So why can’t creationism be taught in the public schools? [Great question!] After all, secular science’s view of how the universe came to be also is faith-based.
You don’t have an answer, do you, dear reader? That’s because you’re a Darwinist fool, and Brian is a master logician.
