This letter was published in NewsWeek magazine. The dabtae is the usual religion versus science:
“In her article on evolution, Sharon Begley acknowledges that many readers will want to believe that the “hand of God” was instrumental in guiding evolutionary change. Actually, that’s not a wise choice for the theist subscriber. Supreme beings who have the ability to create whole universes out of nothing are by definition omniscient and omnipotent. Evolution, on the other hand, is a disorganized process of “fits and starts” with thousands of dead ends and mistakes leading up to the flora and fauna of today. Omniscient deities don’t make mistakes. So a God who guides evolution is a supreme bumbler, not a supreme being”.
