  1. There is a plan for this creation developed by an intelligent being we call God. Science attempts to explain how it works without giving credit to whose plan it is. It takes more faith to believe the scientific theories.

    The branches of life the columnists discusses share characteristics, but that is because they share biological ancestors. Many other organisms which did not share these characteristics used to be on this planet.

    The best example is cyanobacteria, which created oxygen as a waste product, and, eventually, poisoned themselves and all the other anaerobic bacteria and drove themselves extinct or to limited environments where free oxygen is limited.

    God is bigger than this columnist’s ability to describe. I wish The Augusta Press would diversity its religion columnists or acknowledge that this guy is some major investor in the operation and that’s why he gets to spout nonsense weekly.

    Of course, if it is simply a problem of finding people to create content, then that’s a more depressing reason The Augusta Press is using this guy.
