Thank you for the excellent commentary by Scott Howson on God and science ["Evocreationism™: Darwin meets Jerry Falwell," June 28].
He implies it, but does not deal with the fact that language changes over time. He emphasizes that it is amazing that early man was able to parse out the sequences of events that modern science has confirmed.
It is futile to think that yesterday's words carry the same weight as today's words. The marvel is that early man observed his world in a rational manner that is today confirmed in general by science.
We have marvelous minds that allow us to examine and analyze the world we live in and even explore the solar system, the universe, and galaxies beyond. There should be harmony as Scott Howson says, "Friends shouldn't fuss." Both religion and science can offer us important lessons about our real life on Earth.
