I just wanted to make a quick response to Mr. Sakana’s Nov. 23 letter to the editor. He was responding to a previous letter submitted by Mr. Hylden in regards to the Bible answering all of life’s questions.
I did not get to read Mr. Hylden’s letter, so I really can’t debate all of their points, but what I can add is this. To a Christian, the Bible does hold the answer to life’s questions. It may not seem like it to someone who does not believe in a higher power, and that is their right to not believe, should they choose so.
But as a believer, we also have a right to have our opinion and live by those beliefs without being put down for them. To address the issue of God’s “understanding” of our universe, he did create plants and trees on day 3 ... but the sun was created on day 1, not day 4. Hence the phrase “let there be light,” which both believers and non-believers alike know is the sun, the source of light on the planet.
Agree or disagree, that’s fine, we are all entitled to believe what we choose. It’s called free will.
