To the editor:
I would like to respond to Galen Rose’s letter “A final word on intelligent design” in the Sept. 29 edition.
Galen, science cannot ever solve all the unknowns in this earthly world, so, in my opinion, you are comparing apples to oranges. Yes, science is fascinating, but like you, doesn’t have all the answers. Bear in mind, you won’t find many atheists in hospital wards or on battlefields or on Navy vessels or airplanes being shot at.
Like you, I enjoy science, but never let it sway my faith in a supreme being.
I won’t get high-tech, but conclude with this suggestion: please read the Cambridge Diaries by Stephen Hawking. In almost every ending of his 13 chapters, he makes reference to a power greater than his. Or ours. To wit: my mind is made up. God is great!
