Subject: Letter to the Editor (re "Believing Scripture...")
To the Editor:
Re "Believing Scripture but Playing by Science's Rules"
(front page, Feb. 12):
An article that purports to discuss the scientific
acceptability of young-earth creationism, yet fails to provide
any verifiable factual basis for a young earth, does not belong
on the front page of the New York Times.
