Hell is hot, hot, hot

Andy Duncan's letter about evolution continues to stir it up. Today's Tuscaloosa News letter writer sends Andy right to hell.

Bible disproves theory of evolution
Sheila Beasley TuscaloosaFebruary 09, 2005

Dear Editor: Mr. Duncan, my Daddy had two sayings: 1. A little knowledge is a dangerous thing and 2. Education doesn’t always mean intelligence.You keep saying you have proof that evolution exists, and you use the National Geographic as your source.Well, I have proof that evolution is a crock and I use God’s own word, as my source. Genesis 1 and 2 give account of how life was formed and Genesis 7 and 8 say there was a flood, but sorry, but it was Noah, not Darwin who stepped off the ark! As for humans being formed from amoeba, Exodus 4:11-12, and Psalms 139:13-16, call you a liar.You need historical proof, try Matthew 24:1-29. There are words predicting events we are seeing today, words written 2,000 years ago.Matthew 13:14-15 and Matthew 24:4-5 plainly warn me against people like you and Mark 8:38 spars no words describing your punishment for continuing to worship idols and false doctrines. Acts 10:42-43 says Jesus, not Darwin, was sent by God to save us and I guarantee you it won’t be Darwin waiting as you lay on your death bed.So please, get off your high horse! You laugh at Christians and call us ignorant, but believe me we are laughing at you and your attempts to push Satanism on the world. The Bible tells about that too, but also assures us that in the end God wins.And by the way, it’s called Darwin’s Theory!

I wake up every morning just waiting to read the responses to Andy's letter to the editor.

They make me laugh more than the comics page.

Ow, ow, ow, that hurts. Enough with the Bible beating!
I'd like to beat her with some education cards because Christianity and theories of evolution can coexist. But I don't think her literacy skills could go beyond the pages of scripture. Oops, was that mean?

This woman obviously has no knowledge of evolution. I'm a Christian, and I believe God created the universe. I also believe evolution occurs naturally. Look at the white arctic fox. It didn't start out white; over time it became white to adapt to its surroundings. Evolution and Christianity can coexist. It's foolish to think that they can't.

God created the universe.

Religion tells us this.

Science tells us how he did it and how the universe works.

I love how these people get so up in arms about this topic. I really think it is a case of narrow-mindedness on one part, because most people who argue against evoluntion really have no idea what it is, or would even listen to a lecture about it.

I think the problem is that they view evolution as an act, and therefore contend that it is not an act of God, when in actuality, evolution is not really an action or a process, it's just what happens.

Take the case of the pepper moths in Europe during the Industrial Revolution. Most of the trees in the area were white, so the white moths were able to hide from predators, and therefore, were the dominant color of the species. When industry hit, and the smoke turned most of the trees black, the white moths started to die out, and now, the black moths are the domimant color.

In that case, there was no grand act that constituted evolution. Evolution is truthfully just something that happens naturally.

I really don't get the end part, "And by the way, it's Darwin's theory." I assume he thought he was trying to correct some sort of perceived error in one of Andy's letters. In that case, it's good to see the guy who uses the term "spars no words" correcting someone else.

Not to argue one way or the other, but simply to stir in another flavor of thought....

Greek creation myths were written down many centuries BC.

Egyptian heiroglyphics that depicted creation stories were written on stone walls thousands of years BC.

Just because something is written down doesn't make it true.
