Responder needs to check facts

Dear editor,

I will not argue but Mr. Chaisson (Science trumps fiction for global change, Letter, Dec. 29) should get his facts correct and stop making assumptions. Yes I believe that God created the heavens and the earth, I also believe that He has a divine plan for mankind. I believe in being a good steward over the things that God has given us which would include our soul, our body and this beautiful planet earth.

My wife and I do our share of stewardship by recycling, by conserving, by growing our own organic produce. We owned a small logging company “Low Impact Forest Harvesting Ltd” my son and I used commercial thinning and selective logging techniques. We can do much to change our environment by reducing pollution. This however will do little to reduce global warming. Our planet will increase in temperature.

I do not want to substitute prayer for health care. I received a liver transplant, which saved my life. Although this was an answer to prayer, I have much good to say about our doctors and health care system. To correct Mr. Chaisson on another point the bible does not say there will be no more floods. Your rivers and oceans will rise, what God did promise though was that the earth will never again be destroyed by a flood. Science is falsely so called and the natural minded man cannot understand the things of God because they are spiritually understood and therefore foolishness to him.

Only recently has science concluded that the universe could never exist without intelligent design, after hundreds of years science is finally starting to get it right. You mention that I believe in ancient writings well this is a worthwhile quote. The Lord says, “Stand at the crossroads and ask for the ancient paths, Where the good way is, and walk in it; And you will find rest for your souls. But many said, ‘We will not walk in it.’
