Fearfully and wonderfully made

As a retired 91-year-old ­surgeon, I loved Michael Behe’s brilliant essay. It should be mandatory reading for all science students.
     —Jacob Scheeres / Venice, Fla.

As an avid reader of Michael Behe’s books, it was like a rain shower on a thirsty land to see him as the author of your cover story. He has the rare gift of being able to explain complex science to laymen clearly, and the grace and tact to explain it well.
     —Penni Bulten / Boynton Beach, Fla.

The microscope and the telescope are two of man’s greatest inventions. They enable us to see the complexity, order, and wonder of creation in the cells of the human body and the vastness of the universe. If only we could get people to look!
     —Russell Guetschow / Vicksburg, Miss.

Thank you so much for publishing Dr. Behe’s essay, as well as Lynn Vincent’s conversation with this great scientist (“A chat with Michael Behe”). Behe wrote his article with such clarity that even an old ­person like me could understand it!
     —Mary Frank
 / Terrell, Texas

The dragonfly gospel

It truly takes more faith to believe in evolution than creation. I saved Lynn Vincent’s column on my tablet and plan to use it as an evangelistic tool.
     —Jack Suter / Lilburn, Ga.

No shalom for the yeshivas

While I agree with the concerns religious schools have with government control over the content of their curriculum, your photo of the protesters revealed a tactical error: Their signs left out the apostrophe in “children’s education.” I don’t think that helps their case.
     —George R. Nettleton / Willow Street, Pa.

Audacious arguments

Thank you for reprinting Joel Belz’s column from 2005. None of us could have ever imagined things would degenerate so far so fast since then. Our country’s rejection of God and His ways has become so thorough, I wonder if we now qualify for Romans 1:18-32.
     —Kurt W. Mach / Gig Harbor, Wash.

Washington’s grande bouffe

As I read Andrée Seu Peterson’s column, I thought of the phrase, “Whom the gods would destroy they first make mad.” Maybe that’s what’s happening in Washington, D.C., today with our ruling class.
     —Dan Larue / Lebanon, Pa.

A multilayered problem

When my family lived in a larger city, I remember seeing homeless people. Looking back at how they behaved, I don’t believe a house is all that is needed in the lives of these men and women.
     —Ezra Vanderhorst (age 13) / Kansas City, Kan.

The Woman King

If the film’s director wanted to tell the complete historical account of “the good guys,” she could have shown how the English and French went to war with Dahomey and helped destroy the West African transatlantic slave trade.
      —Nathaniel Kliewer / Mountain View, Okla.

Mailbag

As a mother of 11 children, I was intrigued by the negative comments about the cover photo depicting death in Ukraine. I believe it’s important for children and adults alike to see what real tragedy is. I left the magazine out on the kitchen counter for anyone to see.
     —Hannah Chandler / Portland, Ore.

I agree with Noel Adams’ assessment of the new executive editor. I look forward to upcoming issues.
     —Joseph Van Carmichael / Tuscaloosa, Ala.
