I found it amusing that in the article "Not So Natural Selection" by Christian Walsh (March 22), Annie Tran stated that she "wouldn't go in trying to argue with the professors" about evolution and that people who don't believe in the possibility of a "creator" are "intellectually arrogant." Of course she wouldn't argue with her professor since faith is nothing more than a gut feeling and involves no intelligence whatsoever. As an atheist, believe it or not, I have "opened the Bible more than once." One of my favorite passages comes from Luke 14:26, in which Jesus said, "If anyone comes to me and does not hate his father and mother, his wife and children, his brothers and sisters—yes, even his own life—he cannot be my disciple." I suppose when it comes to questions of family values, the answers Ms. Tran gets from the Bible "are good enough for her."
