"Anything of great value--creation, a new idea--carries its shadow zone with it. You have to accept it that way. Otherwise there is only the stagnation of inaction. But every action has an implicit share of negativity. There is no escaping it. Every positive value has its price in negative terms and you never see anything very great which is not, at the same time, horrible in some respect. The genius of Einstein leads to Hiroshima."--Pablo Picasso --From "Picasso: In His Words" edited by Hiro Clark (Collins Publishers San Francisco: $17.95; 96 pp.)

Thank you for your editorial "Historic Agreement on Parkland," Oct. 4. Recognition of the creation of this open-space preserve is very much appreciated. Your editorial congratulates Orange County on its foresight and efforts to preserve this area. We concur with that compliment; the county has been instrumental in the creation of the Laguna Coast Wilderness Park. However, your editorial does not recognize the efforts of Laguna Beach residents who have taxed themselves to pay for the purchase of a major portion of this parkland.

Here we go again with another round of Evolution vs. Creation: "O.C. Teacher Files $5-million Evolution Suit (Oct. 1). You'd think that in the 100-odd years since Scopes, someone would have pointed out that the two are not mutually exclusive theories, but simply different ways of looking at the same reality. Inherent in the theory of evolution itself is the recognition of at least the possibility of a creator: Science can take us back only as far as a microsecond prior to the "Big Bang," at which "time" there existed an infinite amount of mass compressed into a single point.

Teacher John Peloza (Commentary, "Debate on Life's Origin Is Really on Philosophies," May 21) is not writing about his right to discuss different theories of creation nor is he even talking about his right to share a belief in God. Mr. Peloza is arguing that he has the right to promulgate his belief in the "absolute inerrancy of the Bible"--a dimension of the Christian faith that is based on a narrow interpretation of biblical Scriptures that...

Adam and Eve may have been created in "some other form" than human and it is possible that the first living creature was a "lower animal," Cardinal John O'Connor has told worshipers at St. Patrick's Cathedral. The sermon last Sunday by the head of the New York archdiocese came a month after Pope John Paul II said the theory of evolution was "more than just a hypothesis."

In your editorial of July 25 ("When Political Ideology Is Unhealthy"), you note that the Bush Administration had made a decision regarding federal funding that was "contrary to the recommendation of a prestigious scientific panel"--as though this were the only voice that needs to be heard in such a life-or-death issue. It seems we're well on the road to the creation of some kind of Orwellian society in which "science" decides all. Maybe it's too late. Maybe we're already there.

The article discussing the views of biologist Stephen Jay Gould ("The Cosmic Lottery," Nov. 28) portrays man's existence as a mere happenstance. Gould displays the point of view characterized by the weakness of specialists in general: studying a part of the whole and extrapolating a conception of the whole based on an intensive, detailed knowledge of the part studied. The article refers to two other recent books, "Chaos", and "A Brief History of Time." These books develop some important concepts that, taken together, provide some important supplements to Gould's point of view.

Ultra-Orthodox rabbis are objecting to a Pepsi-Cola ad campaign that runs counter to the biblical account of creation, Pepsi's Israeli distributor said. Pepsi's ad plays on the theory of evolution, which Orthodox Judaism rejects as counter to the biblical account of humans being descended from Adam and Eve. The ad shows two apes and the inscription "B.C." With the slogan "The Choice of the New Generation," the ad implies that Pepsi stands at the pinnacle of evolution.

The longevity of satellites ("Satellites' longevity limits sales," Dec. 1) comes as no surprise to those of us who take utmost pride in the pioneering work of having designed, built, tested, launched and operated these unique and complex machines. It is extremely unfortunate, however, that a revisionist history continues to be perpetuated that fails to acknowledge that all of these long-lived satellites were actually the creation of Hughes Space and Communications, which was acquired by Boeing in 2000.
