Monkeys and Bibles


Letters to the Editor

Merle D. Wright
Since reading the Gazette’s Feb. 9 Commentaries (Jason Reese, “Legislate morality,” Kurt Hochenauer, “Separation anxiety”) about new bills introduced in the Oklahoma Legislature that would permit some religious teaching in our public schools that concern creationism verses evolution, I have been struggling with some feelings.

Point: More doctors, less preachers

The scientific community supports evolutionary theory.


Commentary

Kurt Hochenauer
Some conservatives among the religious right want people to believe there is a scientific controversy over the validity of the theory of evolution, but it’s only a backdoor attempt to bring creationist ideas into Oklahoma science classrooms.

‘Controversy’ response


Letters to the Editor

David Grow
Steve Kern (Commentary, “Counterpoint: Scrutinizing science,” April 13, Gazette) could not have provided a better example of why “teach the controversy” and “valid” criticisms of evolution have no legitimate place in science classrooms.

Missing ‘the point’


Letters to the Editor

Steve Kern
I appreciated the tenor of Andy Sand’s response (Letters, “Free thoughts with the Kern clan,” April 20, Gazette) to my April 13 “Counterpoint” Commentary, but he totally missed the point.

‘Designer’ debate


Letters to the Editor

M.G. Oxsen
Professor Kurt Hochenauer should stick to teaching English. He has no credentials to defend the theory of evolution.

Real ‘science’


Letters to the Editor

David Grow
Oh, for crying out loud, here we go again! M.G. Oxsen’s letter (“‘Designer’ debate,” May 18, Oklahoma Gazette), criticizing Kurt Hochenauer’s Commentary (“Point: More doctors, less preachers,“ April 13, Gazette) regarding evolution, again demonstrates an ignorance of basic science and evolution in particular.

Criticizing creationists


Letters to the Editor

J.A. Gowman
The main reason creationists criticize evolution is that it is still just a scientific “theory,” not a scientific “law.” A “theory” starts out as a plausible idea, for which evidence is collected.

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.

Kern doesn't get it


Letters to the Editor

John R. Junger III
In the Rev. Steve Kern’s letter “Missing ‘the point’” (April 27, Gazette), he admits that some aspects of the creation versus evolution debate belong in the philosophy class.
