Disagrees with faith columnist

-A A +A

To the editor:

I was saddened by Pastor Stewart’s opinion piece in last week’s Pioneer.

His unprovoked attack on evolution seemed based on a fundamental denial of the purpose of science, which is to simply observe and document the ongoing revelation of existence.

He suggests that a convicted felon should have greater authority on this subject than a Nobel Prize winning physicist, another cause for concern.

The next time he recommends that we close our eyes to the world, perhaps we might follow Matthew’s advice:  “Leave them alone. They are blind guides of the blind. If the blind guide the blind, both will fall into a pit.”
