Bill Robinson’s letter (See: “Creationism vs. evolution,” Wednesday, Sept. 11) is filled with prejudicial statements.

He claims that most scientists accept evolution. However, this doesn’t prove whether evolution or creation is true — and what should be taught in public school textbooks.

Most scientists approach science with a naturalistic bias against the fact that God created everything in the beginning. But the question is not how many people believe something but whether their convictions are based on solid facts.

No one has observed evolution, and this view is untestable.

Thus, the theory of evolution is not one of science but of history.

Is there evidence that evolution has occurred? Has life ever come from non-life?

Such an idea is preposterous.

Second, Robinson claims that various liberal mainline churches accept evolution rather than creation. What does this prove?

The denominations he has chosen do not believe in the full inspiration, authority and trustworthiness of Scripture. It isn’t surprising that they willingly reject what the Bible has revealed about the source of life.
