The letters to the editor section of our local newspapers is where you find the proud regalia of the American boob in prominent display. Here’s a fine example of creationist inanity from Dothan, Alabama. Try to count the misconceptions about evolution here.
Grade school textbooks teach evolution as fact. It is a monstrous lie that harms our children.
The evolution theory says we evolved from the original Big Bang and later crawled out of a green slime from the ocean.
Here is one example of its ludicrous hypothesis.
Of all the mysteries surrounding evolution, the one that is most baffling to the evolutionists, is “water.” Where did all the oceans come from?
As explained on the National Geographic program, it came from a massive collision in space. As the Earth was cooling from the Big Bang, it was approached by a stray planet that was teeming with water. It collided with Earth, spilled its water onto the Earth, then careened off into space.
Talk about fairy tales. By the way, where did the stray planet get its water?
Come on evolutionists, surely you can develop a more plausible explanation that can be easier to swallow. Until then, I accept the Bible’s answer. After all, the 4,000-year-old book has a perfect track record.
The evolution theory is only 140 years old.
Where to even begin? Evolution only starts once you have chemical and biological replicators; the Big Bang preceded it by a few billion years. We didn’t crawl out of a green slime, other organisms evolved in the oceans that preceded us.
I have never heard of the “ludicrous hypothesis” he’s talking about, and I rather doubt that NatGeo advocated anything of the kind.
His 4,000 year old book actually has a miserable track record — it’s just that gullible fools keep making excuses for it. It also doesn’t describe how earth got its water, other than to claim a god poofed it into existence.
It’s an interesting strategy, though, to invent unbelievable claims for the other side of the argument and then laugh snarkily at how crazy they are. For another example of such disinformation, take a look at what Wesley dug up.
