Supreme Court's Ruling on Teaching of Creationism

June 28, 1987

Your editorial seems to equate acceptance of evolution with a kind of atheism that ridicules religion as "nonsense" and totally rejects the idea of a divine plan in the creation of the world.

Please understand that to the person who believes in God the theory of evolution may be no less than impressive evidence of divine power and presence. Even St. Augustine declared that in his original creative act Almighty God planted in nature "seminal forces" that would be effective in future development. To believe that God created the world and all within it is not "nonsense." It is merely not for us to know how he did it until science puzzles it out, using the minds God gave us all.
