'If Kern needs convincing...'

Mack Paul August 10th, 2011

The Rev. Steve Kern (Letters, “Fuel for fossil debate,” July 27, Gazette) invites derision rather than serious rebuttal when he writes of “observable evidence that has convinced me that dinosaurs and man lived at the same time,” and bolsters the argument with assurances that he does indeed realize that the Earth is round.

Has he not seen the “Jurassic Park” movie? It’s a fantasy, to be sure, one I’d be loath to introduce into a serious discussion, but it illustrates the point that the Earth was once veritably crawling with serious predators that would make quick work of everyone today, not to mention Adam and Eve (not Adam and Steve). If Kern needs convincing, he could check out “Godzilla” for evidence of what just one ill-tempered dinosaur might accomplish.

I am really quite puzzled that Kern apparently feels the teachings of Jesus Christ are too weak to stand apart from the primitive creation myth he insists on cramming down everyone’s throat. This myth makes as much a mockery of Christian teachings as does the Catholic insistence of papal infallibility.
