A Response to James S. Mellett
by The Rev. Arthur W. Collins, Ph.D.
A geologist who attends my church gave me a copy of The Professional Geologist
containing an article by James S. Mellett. He thought it might pique my interest, both as a clergyperson and as the son of a professional geologist.
In writing on the Creation/Evolution wrangle that seems to go on and on, Mr. Mellett did a fair job of representing the Science side of the argument, but I’m not sure that he did justice to the religious data he cited. This is a problem with all polemicists: if they are sure of their cause, then they feel justified in throwing the kitchen sink (even if it’s the wrong kitchen sink) at their opponents.( Collapse )
