Science offers theories better than philosophy.

Anti-evolutionists argue that everything must have an explanation and if none is apparent then creation must be the will of a non-natural force.

But evolution has no need of a designer any more than the stars needed angels to move them once Newton discovered the law of gravity and the three laws of motion.

David Burton has read my letters and shouldn't be surprised that I reject supernatural explanations for the origin of life. In my opinion the rational conclusions offered by the natural sciences are far more compelling.

Even though they are far from complete, scientific theories offer better explanations than a philosophical claim that "God did it" without any evidence at all.
