Letters to editor

Flaws in letter about history

By From page A10 | March 09, 2014

I rarely take my thyme to korrect a plethora of misteaks in a letter to the editor, however, in thee case of “Is history repeating?” (Feb. 27), I shall make an exception.

First, the name is Murray Bass, not Maury. If you are going to criticize, get it right the first time.

Second, the scholar Samuel Johnson, said: “Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel” . . . that is why you see so many motorcycle thugs displaying the American flag. They must feel they can get away with anything that way.

Yes, America being one of the most educated and knowledgeable societies on this Earth, has come to realize, through the recent abundance of space exploration, that there is really no such thing as a God, Holy Spirit nor other entity to whom we report or pray. Unfortunately our current system of determining the years is based on the extremely false idea that the Son of God was born 2,014 years ago.

Based on the scientific evidence available to anyone, there is an approximate error of three to five years difference, which cannot be accounted for. “In God We Trust” should be changed to “In Science We Trust.” I put it to you!

Harry M. Short

    You see a lot of flags at tea party meeting too, I'm told.

    Really, Harold? Science disproves God? Where is your scientific evidence, from the "scientific method", showing that a rock turned into every form of life on earth? You put your faith, Harold, in "billions of years". Your version of science, Harold, is a religion. That's all we need, Harold... another false religion.

    a person is declared brain dead when doctors can no longer detect energy waves emanating from the brain. this is active energy. a smart man will wear eye protection when attempting to split a rock with a hammer causing it to explode. science tells us that energy never completely disappears but simply is transferred to a different form. what happened to the brain waves?

    Easy--the brain wave's energy was dissipated as heat when the paramedics crumpled up the tin foil hat and tossed it into the trash.

    so that's why the paranoid mentalists cover their heads with tinfoil caps. not a very good reply general, does not even come close to a reply.
