Are locked into a pitiless struggle for existence with extinction looming for those not fitted for the taskYet The Origin of Species 1859 is also a humane and inspirational vision of ecological interrelatedness revealing the complex mutual interdependencies between animal a Dear CarolThank you for your mail and of course I remember meeting you on the flight last month It was a very interesting discussion and I'm still thinking about it The semester has now started here at Creationist U and I am working hard but I found time to read the book you recommended And I'm glad I did because it was really a lot better than I thought it would beI guess I was expecting Darwin to be like Richard Dawkins but he was respectful of religious ideas And it was great that he liked Paley's Natural Theology so much he says he almost knew it by heart We read Paley last year in History of Creation Science and I also thought it was a terrific book So I could see Darwin was an open minded person who was prepared to look at both sides of the uestion Richard Dawkins could learn a lot from thatThe way he sets up his argument is smart He starts off talking about how stockbreeders can improve their breed well I'm a country boy and I could see he knew his stuff This is someone who's spent time down at the farm and understands how country people feel about livestock And I liked that he'd done all that work raising pigeons Not the kind of scientist who just hangs out at the lab all day After that he introduces his Big Idea about the survival of the fittest and he almost made evolution sound sensible He's a good writer And then he was honest when he explained all the problems with the theory He really got me I was wondering if he was going to mention any of that stuff and a page later he came out and said just what I was thinking Nice work Mr Darwin But I did wonder what he was doing cutting out the ground from under his own feet He said he could explain things like the eye and how bees could evolve to make honeycombs but even if he was real good at making his case I wasn't buying anySo by the halfway mark I figured he was done but like ol' Dubya used to say I misunderestimated him he'd saved all his best stuff for last He had some good shots I got to admit he made me think Why does God put the species that look alike in the same place Like he says it is weird how you have a mountain range and there's one kind of animals and plants on one side and a different kind on the other side God's ways are inscrutable to us but why does He care about those mountains And the islands they were even worse He says if you look at the species on a lot of islands you don't have any mammals there except you do have bats Why I could see where he was going with this one the bats could blow in off the mainland and evolve but other mammals couldn't do that I admit it I don't have an answer except maybe God's testing our faith again But I can see not everyone will like that I'm still wondering about those bats Okay Mr Darwin I said it already but I'll say it again you were a smart guy So how's life at MIT And I hope you read the book I recommended to you A Canticle for Leibowitz will show you that faith and science have in common than you might thinkTake careBob
