Plenty of 'evidence' in Bible

IN reference to Mr W. A. T. Crawley's letter (South China Morning Post, May 3) and Mr Gwynne's reply (Post, May 8) on the subject of ''evolution or creation'', I feel I must write in defence of Mr Crawley against Mr Gwynne's sharp accusations.

However hard I try I can neither detect any fanaticism nor any religious obsession in Mr Crawley's letter.

He simply made the statement that creation is more likely than evolution and that ''God exists''. He didn't even mention the Bible. Mr Gwynne's letter however, clearly shows many more fanatical remarks, and I wonder what made him so angry with God that he became such a fervent atheist? Maybe if Mr Gwynne would be willing to study the Bible as diligently as Darwin's evolutionary theory, he would realise that there is plenty of ''evidence'' for its eternal truths and God's existence. If ''all'' we as Christians have to go on is faith andthe Bible, I would say that is ''a lot''! The tragic consequences of children being raised on the evolutionary theory and therefore without a sense of value and purpose in life - and worst of all, without hope - can easily be seen in this world. You are entitled to your unbelief, Mr Gwynne, but please do not attack others for their faith in God, I am sure we can all voice our opinions without insulting each other.
