Willful ignorance of science


Letters to the Editor

Jordan Jay
Rev. Kern, your March 13 letter, “What evolutionists fear” (Oklahoma Gazette), betrays a fundamental misunderstanding of evolutionary theory. Spontaneous generation was an incorrect scientific hypothesis that Louis Pasteur did, indeed, disprove. However, to equate spontaneous generation and the current definition of abiogenesis is disingenuous. Spontaneous generation referred to the idea that individual present-day organisms could arise from nonliving matter, such as maggots seeming to arise from rotten meat out of thin air.
