Georgia, at a church banquet in Hartwell, GA in which you said that evolution, embryology and the Big Bang Theory are “lies straight from the pit of hell”. It then went on to note that you were on the Committee of Science, Space and Technology at that time. It seems to me that your beliefs and your committee assignment create an illogical situation.
You stated that you firmly believe the earth was created about 9,000 years ago and in six days. Well, OK, that’s your privilege of course, but I consider this illogical because I have sitting in my bookcase a small stone that contains a fossilized fern leaf. We picked this up once on one of our family trips with the kids when they were still in grade school. At the time I was told the fossil was hundreds of thousands of years, possibly millions of years old. If you are right, how can this be?
Webster defines logic as “correct reasoning”. If you are right then we would have to assume, logically, that we poor humans were created about the same time as the earth was and, more importantly, with the ability to reason correctly. It would make no sense to have us only reason incorrectly although one has to wonder sometimes, especially in election years. So if something or someone created the earth that recently He or She would have had to do so with the fossils included. It would also have to be expected that, logically, we would eventually find the fossils and, logically, conclude they are evidence of evolution. Was the creator trying to fool us? Was He or She trying to make a joke?
In view of your firm belief you must have some convincing answer. Don’t tell me “God works in mysterious ways”. That’s a cop-out; something I would expect from a politician not a devout person, because it’s illogical.
