Letter to the Editor in my local paper
I don't usually read the letters to the editor in my local paper (they make me too mad) but I checked them out today and saw this one... which makes me glad I don't pay attention to the letters to the editor in my local paper.
Darwinism can't explain complexities in lifeMonday, June 11, 2007
In the May 25 letter, "Most people lack knowledge about evolution," another fleeting endeavor was made at defending Darwinism. The writer stated, "One of the biggest problems facing our nation: a general lack of education."
A truly infectious problem facing our nation is the callous ignorance of the truth, and to all the irrefutable evidence substantiated to intelligent design and creationism. There are too many irreducible complexities in life for things to fall together puzzle-like over a long period of time as theorized and suggested in the fairy tale version of how it all happened without God.
The writer stated it was ridiculous for male and female species to appear at the same time, then he made the weak comment, "Did a wolf give birth to a Chihuahua?" He didn't answer the question as to how gender came about, so was it a male or female wolf giving birth?
The May 26 letter, "Plants thrive without animal life" (possibly defending the fairy tale version?) stated that "Darwin evolved into a self-described agnostic."
Information on the Web is abounding, but it is not available in our public schools where creationism and intelligent design are outlawed and can't even be suggested.
This is calculated ignorance and containment of the truth with enforced propaganda.
Both letter writers appear to be educated men, but if I agreed with them and Darwin, we'd all be wrong.
Prayer: How to do nothing and feel like your doing something.
