Letter: Let's be clear about creationism 8

March 29, 2002

In a multi-faith society, it is surprising that creationism is assumed by your paper to be solely a Christian philosophy. Despite some sharing of creation theories among Judaism, Christianity and Islam, each faith has its own perspective, if not its own account. The solution for universities is to insist that if one account is to be explored, then all must be and that the validity of one should be established before it can be propagated. While different faiths debate the validity of their theories, biological evolutionists may quietly pursue their work.
