Subject: a new fundamentalism vs. evolution
I would really appreciate it if you could forward this link to
several ASAers who would be in a better position than I am to
respond rationally to it. I was really surprised to receive
unsolicited email from persons I have never met who made the
assertion that "evolution" is to blame for the World Trade Center
I responded to the sender, trying to make a distinction between
science theories and "isms", but he disagreed and referred me to
http://www.hyahya.org/disaster1.php as the source of his ideas.
I have tried to make the point that blaming a scientific idea for
terrorism is about as fair as blaming all Moslems for it. (this
prejudice exists, and innocent people are being harmed by it, but
it is unjust).
Anyway, this would be an opportunity for ASA to be a voice of
reason crying in the wilderness, if we could respond to the issue
on the web site. Whom shall we send?
