Fuel for fossil debate

Letters to the Editor

Steve Kern
James Nimmo (Letters, “Dinosaurs and humans, living together!,” July 12, Gazette) accused me of being a “flat-earth” person because I do not accept evolution dogma that says dinosaurs died out 70 million years ago.

Design unintelligent

Letters to the Editor

Clinton Wiles
The Rev. Kern’s letter (“Fuel for fossil debate,” July 27, Gazette) on the scarcity of intermediate fossils indicates he still lacks an understanding of evolution.

Challenge accepted

Letters to the Editor

James Nimmo
I’m delighted to accept Steve Kern’s challenge (Letters, “Fuel for fossil debate,” July 27, Gazette), especially as I can do it with his own words. He implies his Bible is a work of science, and it has convinced him that dinosaurs and men lived at the same time. If his source material is false, then any opinions based thereon are also false.

Not dead yet

Letters to the Editor

Kristi Hendricks
As an educated young woman who works at a library and in media, I wanted to comment on the Rev. Steve Kern’s letter to the Sept. 7 issue of Oklahoma Gazette in which Kern said, quite plainly, that “evolution is dead.” I found this to be condescending to the scientists, professors and librarians (many of whom I know) who either teach or are familiar with the theory of evolution.

‘Mistaken environmentalists’

Letters to the Editor

Mickey McVay
James Stovall (Letters, “Unprecedented crisis,” Aug. 3, Gazette) informs us that warm air “holds more water vapor than cold air.” Golly gee, now that would be real news, except that it is a long-known fact that steam is an excellent way to retain and transport water vapor and heat.

'Crank' that

Letters to the Editor

Michael Hopkins
They say people in glass houses should not throw rocks. In his letter “Mistaken environmentalists” (Sept. 14, Gazette), Mickey McVay seems to suggest that those who say that humans might have contributed to climate change are ignorant idiots.

Perfect Sense

Love means never having to say ‘you’re sorry’ ... because your partner can’t hear you, anyway.


Rod Lott
If Contagion were exported to Scotland — and injected with a dose of speculative fiction in customs — the result might make Perfect Sense. The film fails only to fit snugly into one genre, being a thriller, a romance and sci-fi, but sci-fi only in the sense that Children of Men and Never Let Me Go were. This is equally brainy, and maybe just a smidge less bleak.
