To the editor:

I find it very humorous that Leonard Krishtalka ("Evolution theory explains fact") cannot produce any facts to support evolution. His greatest defense of evolution is his argument that creationists must explain male nipples. That to me is funny.

Maybe Leonard has spent too much time in the Natural History Museum and now thinks his stuffed exhibit is the real world, and he is the director-god. Because only in scientific debate does his slash and burn theory of argument go by unchecked. Few of us have the time Leonard does to research all the facts, and all he can come up with is pigs' feet? Come on. We should expect more from state, tax-funded employees. Leonard should know it's not in the creationist model that all design must be justified by purely pragmatic reasons. Pigs' feet are ugly, and maybe meant to be ugly so that we can appreciate those things that are beautiful.

The point Leonard makes that creationists hold on to their model because they can't face the pain of the truth does not accurately take into account the pain an evolutionist would have to overcome to see clearly that there is a Creator, and that our lives are measured by Him.
