Speed bumps on the rocky road to creation
• I would like to respond to a letter published on July 19 ("Evolution?").
Mr McLoughlin gives us his not-so-tentative tuppence worth on a range of issues, including marriage equality, evolution, the age of the Earth and abortion. I would like to counter his arguments.
Firstly, he says that he does not believe in marriage equality because "it is not God's way". I would like to know how, and why, he can claim to know of his god's deepest thoughts, standards, ideals and plans for this Earth and all its species. He lacks the evidence to back up such a claim.
