Michael Korn, the crazed creationist from Colorado who has threatened evolutionists with physical harm, keeps sending me email. His latest is an enumeration of the sins of evolutionists as exhibited in the movie, Expelled, which seems to have him quite worked up. He ranks us by evil; I’m #2*. I’m going to have to try harder.
At least Korn is getting better at making his threats oblique. After listing our wickedness and telling us he’s looking forward to a “McCarthy-type campaign” that will take care of us for good, he offers us this heartwarming benediction:
Despite my disdain for all you represent and for the damage you are inflicting on the hearts, minds, and souls of our nation’s children, in obedience to my LORD I shall pray for your salvation, as I would pray for the salvation of Adolph Hitler or Joseph Stalin or the Boston Strangler. You all deserve one more chance. But mark my words, do not try God’s patience for long, for He grieves deeply about the many millions of souls you are dragging along with you into deepest hell, and eventually He will intervene in a mighty and dramatic way, for the salvation of those who look to Him and to the eternal shame of His pathetic and puny human detractors.
This is fairly typical of what I’m getting these days, although Korn actually has better spelling and grammar, and is significantly more longwinded, than most, and I usually don’t get compared to Hitler, Stalin, and the Boston Strangler. It’s nice to know I get one more chance before something mighty and dramatic happens…now if only I knew what it was a chance to do. Shall I laugh a little harder?
*#1 is Michael Ruse; his offense is mentioning the hypothesis that life was catalyzed on the surface of crystals. Dawkins is #3, and Eugenie Scott is #4.
