To the editor:
Kenneth Miller has kindly written to me that my op-ed piece in the Journal-World ("Faith persists in face of reason," Oct. 26) misrepresents his views on evolution and God, specifically those put forward in his Difficult Dialogues presentation at Kansas University on Sept. 7 (the video of Dr. Miller's lecture is available at www.hallcenter.ku.edu).
For the record, Mr. Miller says that "I have always insisted that completely natural processes were sufficient for evolution to bring about the world in which we live, and that the capacity for life is inherent in matter itself. The only point I would add, as a believer, is my faith that the ultimate cause of the capacity for life and for evolution is God himself, and that we live in a universe where the evolution of 'endless forms most beautiful' is precisely the Creator's intent."
Any misrepresentation of Mr. Miller's views was completely unintentional.
