PUBLIC VIEWPOINT Hobson’s Scientific Evidence Missing

Posted: January 19, 2014 at 4:51 a.m.

Art Hobson gives us a fascinating account (Geological Time Scale, Jan. 12) of when and how everything began, our solar system, the formation of the earth, the beginning of life, etc. Included, of course, is the grand assumption that macroevolution has occurred, the changing from one species to another involving new body plans and new complex organs. Hobson does not suggest there is any problem at all with that position, that it is, as at least one local pastor assures us, “settled science.” And this settled science is very sure that “in a clear evolutionary line to modern homo sapiens” we have evolved from the apes “that came down from the trees.”
