Peppered with error

August 15, 2003

Reading Michael Majerus' article on the peppered moth ("A wing and a prayer", THES , August 8) reminded me of a curious fact. Creationists appear to focus on supposed deficiencies in "the theory of evolution". They appear content to ignore the fact that their views are flatly contradicted by a mountain of evidence from a wide range of physical sciences, all of which attests to the vast age and slow development of this planet, and of the rest of the known universe.
