Evolution vs. God

Years of arguing on imsasun has prepared me well for arguing with a local minister on evolution and God. I suspect it'll get printed; we'll see if it gets a response. I only wish the R-M put its letters online, so I could link to the column I'm responding to.

Meanwhile, I'm watching TV, and I still think "Jurassic Bark" is the best, saddest episode of Futurama or for that matter, of pretty much any other show, ever. I even thought that before I had a dog of my own.

"When I see patterns in my programs, I consider it a sign of trouble. The shape of a program should reflect only the problem it needs to solve. Any other regularity in the code is a sign, to me at least, that I'm using abstractions that aren't powerful enough---often that I'm generating by hand the expansions of some macro that I need to write." --Paul Graham

Thank you! I came home from Grinnell last May or so to get my wisdom teeth out, and decided to set up an appointment during his 'office hours' to try to set Johnson straight about how totally unscientific 'scientific' sermons are and if he HAD to babble about creationism he should at least make it clear that he has no idea about science. A letter to the newspaper (reaching a broader audience) seems like it would be more useful. Posted by M. Spurgeon at 10:50am on 26 Jan 2005
