You can’t prove the theory of evolution

I read the very biased article “You can’t even do it in Texas” about creationism and science. The article was printed Sept. 10. Let me share a few thoughts with your readers.

The word science comes from a root meaning knowledge. True science does not and should not endorse unproven theories as science. Evolution, of course, is not a proven fact.

From a purely scientific basis no one has scientific proof of when or how the universe, life, man, came into existence.

Factually most people who believe in and teach evolution do so because they fear the existence of God and His creating the world they live in.

Here is the basic creed or belief of evolutionists. I have shortened it just slightly to save time. But when pushed here is the evolutionist creed. Nothing plus nothing plus time equals everything.

Can this be scientifically proved? Of course not, but it does eliminate any mention of the Creator and thus any fear of meeting Him and giving account to Him.

Look where this leaves us educationally. We don’t study the first man, Adam. We don’t study the greatest King, David. We don’t study the strongest man, Samson. We don’t study the greatest general, Joshua. We don’t study the wisest man, Solomon.

We wind up not knowing who we are, how we got here, what we are supposed to be doing, and not knowing what happens after death. And this is called first class education.

There are numerous books that refute evolution and there are many scientists who know it is fraudulent. These books are not recommended reading for discussion in our modern classroom. Why is that? If the evolutionist theory is provable, why not let the opposing views be shared in the class and let the students see the other side.

I was taught evolution in a state school years ago. The teacher said he was paid by the state to teach evolution and he would do a good job at it. He then added he did not believe in evolution and neither should we.

He mentioned we lived in an agricultural community and every farmer knew if things were left alone, whether it was livestock or crops, nothing ever evolved into anything better. In fact things got worse and not better. He was right.

Evolution is not scientifically provable, It is just wild guessing and wrong interpretation of things. It is clearly anti-god, anti-religion, and anti-reason. Don’t be taken in by such nonsense. His Glad Servant

  • It’s a secret It’s a secret

    Could someone enlighten us about why not even the names of the two entities bidding on development of the Footer Dye Works building can be divulged?
    A Times-News article about the bids included an explanation from a lawyer for the attorney general’s office about the need to keep the names and other information secret at this time. Despite that, the logic of not divulging at least a little more information escapes us.

  • What do we do about those who weren’t criminals after all?

    Now that Maryland has become the 17th state to (finally) decriminalize possession of marijuana, one could say that the legislature and governor should be patted on the back for doing the right thing.

  • Translations differ, but the message is eternal

    This letter is in response to a recent letter titled “One cannot compromise on God’s word” (April 13 Times-News). I had previously written a letter titled “Why are compromises so difficult to achieve” (April 7).

  • Closing the loopholes will help clear the regulatory waters

    After a decade of uncertainty over Clean Water Act jurisdiction following Supreme Court challenges in 2001 and 2006, the Environmental Protection Agency and Army Corps of Engineers announced a forthcoming administrative rule to close enforcement loopholes, restoring protections to 20 million acres of wetlands, more than half the nation’s streams, and drinking water for 117 million Americans.

  • The first step Remember where your freedom comes from before criticizing

    The deal at Fort Hood could have been avoided if it was caught in time.
    When you think a GI is not acting right, have him or her checked out before you put them back on duty and give them a weapon. Post-traumatic stress disorder is a serious and dangerous problem if it is not taken care of right away.

    Drive anywhere in Maryland and it seems there is one highway construction project after another. While it is good to see our roads and bridges being upgraded, it can be nerve-wracking for anyone traveling a long distance.

  • Midterm elections give chance to return to American values

    A movement has been started by veterans of our armed forces to get out the vote in 2014. That includes Coast Guard and Merchant Marine personnel for those not familiar with the history of both and their sacrifice. This is no small special interest  group, but many millions of Americans who can have an enormous impact on the  outcome of the November election if they all respond.
