    Nonetheless, I wouldn't go trying to do a "Superman" off Kingsway carpark just yet."

Experts in the unproven

First published in Letters

TERRY Banfield (Letters, April 20) cites the Evolution Exhibition at the National Museum of Wales and its sponsorship by the Welsh Assembly, as good enough reason to dismiss writer Tom McCarthy’s creationist world view.

The fact remains, that the theory of evolution remains unproven, (as many evolutionists will admit to) and those who promote it as fact do a great disservice, especially to impressionable and inquiring young minds.

What Mr Banfield refers to as ‘experts’ in evolution are nothing of the sort. One can hardly be an expert in something which remains in the realm of conjecture, and as such, has to be regarded as bad science.
