Creationist legislation dishonest to the core

Letters to the Editor

David Grow
Greg Horton’s article “Evolution alternatives” (News, Feb. 2, Oklahoma Gazette) exposes the damage creationist bills — House Bill 1001 by state Rep. Mike Reynolds, R-Oklahoma City; HB 1551 by Rep. Sally Kern, R-OKC; and SB 554 by Sen. Josh Brecheen, R-Coalgate — will do to Oklahoma.

Culling the herd

No intelligent design for you.


Gazette staff
Well, it appears this year we won’t get to learn of all of those other well-established peer-reviewed scientific theories that challenge evolutionary theory.

In the name of science

Letters to the Editor

Darryel Reigh
I would like to test the injunction to “teach the controversy” concerning creationism and evolution as advocated recently by Jason Reese (Commentary, “Legislate morality,” Feb. 9, Gazette).

Point: More doctors, less preachers

The scientific community supports evolutionary theory.


Kurt Hochenauer
Some conservatives among the religious right want people to believe there is a scientific controversy over the validity of the theory of evolution, but it’s only a backdoor attempt to bring creationist ideas into Oklahoma science classrooms.

‘Leap of faith’

Letters to the Editor

Mack Paul
In his Commentary (“Scrutinizing science”), Steve Kern tells us that real education should be about teaching kids to think. If we are to do this, it is important that we teach them the distinction between a scientific theory and a hunch. An idea becomes a theory only after it has been subjected to rigorous testing and peer review.

Real ‘science’

Letters to the Editor

David Grow
Oh, for crying out loud, here we go again! M.G. Oxsen’s letter (“‘Designer’ debate,” May 18, Oklahoma Gazette), criticizing Kurt Hochenauer’s Commentary (“Point: More doctors, less preachers,“ April 13, Gazette) regarding evolution, again demonstrates an ignorance of basic science and evolution in particular.

Criticizing creationists

Letters to the Editor

J.A. Gowman
The main reason creationists criticize evolution is that it is still just a scientific “theory,” not a scientific “law.” A “theory” starts out as a plausible idea, for which evidence is collected.

What evolutionists fear

Letters to the Editor

Steve Kern
Regarding the Feb. 6 letter to the editor by Douglas Mock, Joseph Thai and Tom Boyd (“Same ol’, same ol’”): It’s the same ol’, same ol’ strategy by closed-minded, evolution-Kool-Aid-drinking scientists in our universities who keep out an ever-watchful eye to protect their weak theory from any scrutiny.
