Science requires facts, not faith to explain

God may have set the rules, but the rules led to provable evolution

Re: Believing in theory of evolution requires faith (Letters, April 13)

This letter writer demonstrates that there is no mind more closed than that of the person who cannot accept plain evidence well documented and tested.  Why can persons of faith not accept that their God may have set up a system of rules that He knew would create our world over time?

The fallacies and egregious and misleading untruths her letter contains are plain evidence of her blindness to tested facts that explain our world and its development over aeons.

Indeed she attempts to turn the discussion on its head with her statement that science requires faith. No, it requires facts. So-called creation science is just religious preaching that goes well beyond factual reality.
