God Versus Science

Submitted by on March 27, 2007 – 12:55 pm

This letter was published in NewsWeek magazine. The dabtae is the usual religion versus science:

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”.
