Wow, George Kauffman (letter Feb. 5) sure got in a lot of jabs into religious people in his effort to get us to celebrate Charles Darwin.
I am a young earth creationist, which means that I believe in a straight-forward reading and understanding of the creation of the universe as described in Genesis.I, also, believe that Mr. Darwin was a great scientist. He just happened to come to some wrong conclusions. He also admitted that what he was trying to describe could certainly be interpreted differently by other scientists. He was not nearly as dogmatic in his thinking and conclusions as are many evolutionists today.
Since the time of Mr. Darwin, scientists still have not been able to show how life could have evolved from nonlife, and there is still no evidence of how the process of natural selection would cause one species to turn into another species.
I embrace science. We have made many wonderful discoveries about how the universe works, and that has all been made possible because God created the universe with laws in place that we can discover.
The main reason most people today don’t believe in Darwinian evolution is because they just don’t believe it to be true. If there is shame in that, so be it!
