In the name of science

Letters to the Editor

Darryel Reigh
I would like to test the injunction to “teach the controversy” concerning creationism and evolution as advocated recently by Jason Reese (Commentary, “Legislate morality,” Feb. 9, Gazette).

Nice to find ‘intelligent life’ on planet Earth

Letters to the Editor

Glen Garcia
Kudos to both David Grow (“Real ‘science,’” May 25, Gazette) and Michael Hopkins (“A ‘point’ refuted,” May 25) for their masterful refutations of the anti-evolutionist dogma recently published within the Letters pages of your fine publication.

Adam and Eve 101

Letters to the Editor

Merle D. Wright
The points of view have been going on for weeks in the Gazette about the teaching of creationism in Oklahoma’s public schools, and it’s clear that the creationists need to start at the beginning before challenging the evolution-of-mankind science.

'Conspiracy theory'

Letters to the Editor

Michael Hopkins
When the original Obama birth certificate was released, those familiar with crank intellectualism knew what would happen: The new evidence would be made to “fit” a preposterous conspiracy theory. No matter what is found, a crank will make it “fit.”

Down with science


Gazette staff
Science homework might be a little easier for Oklahoma students in the near future, depending on how you look at it. House Bill 1674 by Rep. Gus Blackwell, R-Laverne, would allow students to turn in schoolwork that challenges “controversial topics” such as “biological evolution, the chemical origins of life, global warming and human cloning” without adverse consequences, such as a pesky bad grade. It also will force teachers to come up with more creative ways of handling such subjects.

What evolutionists fear

Letters to the Editor

Steve Kern
Regarding the Feb. 6 letter to the editor by Douglas Mock, Joseph Thai and Tom Boyd (“Same ol’, same ol’”): It’s the same ol’, same ol’ strategy by closed-minded, evolution-Kool-Aid-drinking scientists in our universities who keep out an ever-watchful eye to protect their weak theory from any scrutiny.

Willful ignorance of science

Letters to the Editor

Jordan Jay
Rev. Kern, your March 13 letter, “What evolutionists fear” (Oklahoma Gazette), betrays a fundamental misunderstanding of evolutionary theory. Spontaneous generation was an incorrect scientific hypothesis that Louis Pasteur did, indeed, disprove. However, to equate spontaneous generation and the current definition of abiogenesis is disingenuous. Spontaneous generation referred to the idea that individual present-day organisms could arise from nonliving matter, such as maggots seeming to arise from rotten meat out of thin air.

Evolution revolution


Gazette staff
If it seems like the battle between evolutionists and creationists will never end, that’s because it won’t.

After an unfortunate timing mishap, local Fox affiliate KOKH-TV is being accused of letting conservative views impinge upon the national content broadcast on its local channel.
