USA Today, which is the flagship of the corporation that is selling/closing my newspaper, has a really great column today on science vs. religion, the most trenchant part of which is in the first 50 words:
“Many Americans still reject evolution, which is viewed by some as a threat to the foundation of faith. On the contrary, religion answers the ‘Why?’ while science answers the ‘How?’ This is a fight we need not have.”
Amen, I say to the blogger/columnist who penned those words. It simply isn’t worth the bickering.
