Maybe some of us equally rational, professional and intelligent scientists
are not as convinced as yourself that evolution ("macroevolution, if you
wish") is a foregone conclusion.

To paraphrase a geologist friend of mine at a recent meeting of the society
of christian Geologists, maybe it is time that some of you who have given
up on a literal reading of the Bible (and thus achieved a superior position
to those of us who have not) reexamined your positions on science in terms
of Scripture. Why is it only Scripture that has to be reinterpreted??? I
know that is the easiest course, in terms of intellectual acceptability,
but you know as well as I it is not an easy course in terms of theological
implications. Maybe there is a good reason why it is not easy.
