To the editor:
Watching both sides in the uproar over teaching intelligent design in public schools is like watching siblings arguing over their toys. Trying to understand this situation leads one to conclude each side has so much personally invested, including reputations, they refuse to be open to each other. Ridicule and personal attacks contained in the literature and public behavior should make both sides blush. Evolutionists seeking to protect turf hide behind separation of church and state. Most physicists scoffed when Einstein proposed his relativity theory which represented a dramatic change in science.
Both sides should open their paradigms to joint cooperation and see where it leads us. We accept science teaching creation of the universe via a big bang, yet science has no answers why this energy was suddenly created and exploded when nothing existed prior. Science explains gravity's effects yet cannot answer "What is gravity?" We use science to explain our universe yet we cannot explain why such a thing as science exists. Why is there order and unity in a supposedly random universe? Science explains some of what happens but can never explain everything nor why. In the opinion of biologist Edwin Chargaff, all real scientists are driven by the mysterious intuition that something immense and unknowable dwells in the material world.
It would be funny to watch the battle over separation of church and state if we discover a female creator. One thing is for sure; in the end we will all know the truth.
