    I’m not quite sure which side the letter writer is on:

    Fossil discovery fuels debate over evolution

    Recently I read that a newly discovered cache of fossils in Wyoming has been opened up for scientific research. Just imagine, dinosaur bones lying around on the ground!

    It brings up an interesting opportunity to test the question of Creationism vs. Evolution. Creationism predicts that we’ll find fossils from modern animals like birds and mammals there. If such fossils are found, then Darwin is wrong.

    We shall see if the people clinging desperately to a disproved theory will accept that they’re wrong. Either way, the debate will surely rage on.

    Clifton Goodwin

    It’s difficult to prove a negative, so if modern animals aren’t found the creationists will have no problem spinning that fact away. Best guess? Mr. Goodwin thinks the Earth is 6,000 years old.
