To the editor:
I am sorry to see the conflict between religion and science creeping back into public policy, especially since to me it makes no sense religiously.
The creation stories in the Bible are early human’s attempt to explain the wonderful world they found all around themselves. God gave them the gifts not only of life but also of perception and reasoning.
Throughout the centuries, those gifts have enabled modern humans to expand and refine the stories of the world around us in ever-increasing detail and added wonderment.
