Evolution a well-accepted scientific theory
Bravo to Brian Sell for his well-written article “False Dichotomy” (First Person, Nov. 30-Dec. 7). It’s appalling that once again certain folks, including the assistant editor of our city’s major newspaper, are using false rhetoric to undermine a scientifically proven and well-accepted scientific theory, i.e. evolution. I find it perplexing that some people are so adamantly resistant to accepting that we share our origins with apes, birds, whales and even snails and bacteria — I think it’s a wonderfully beautiful thing! Perhaps a good dose of humility is in order. Anyhow, thanks again and keep it up! Ryan J. Otten, M.D.
