No Earth-ly idea how to get past partisan gridlock
To the Editor:
It is completely useless to squabble over how the Earth was formed. No person was present at that event so we will never know how or when it happened. Scientists can speculate and theorize, but they will never be able to say with absolute certainty how it happened. Christians have a myth that tells how and when, but it must be accepted by faith which by the very nature of faith makes the myth unverifiable. With that said, to Mr. Knight and Republicans, I say your faith will never convince anyone that the Earth was formed in six days 9,000 years ago. To Ms. Murray and Democrats, I say your science will never break the faith of those whose beliefs are based on it. Therefore, Mr. Knight and Ms. Murray, please accept the fact that neither of you will ever agree on this subject and I beg of you, as Morgan Countians and fellow Americans, please answer this one question which I believe is much more pertinent to our situation in America.
What will it take to get Democrats and Republicans to quit being so childish, ignorant, pig-headed, arrogant, stubborn, hateful, (I'm sure readers can think of others), so that at all levels of government they can start trying to seriously solve the problems this country is facing?
