To the Editor: Controversy over science and religion is needless

The controversy that has raged in these columns between science and religion is really a needless one. With due respect to the writers I would like to suggest that those who wish to know more about this issue in western philosophy should start with an in depth study of St. Augustine (354-430) and follow it up with Averroes (Arabic Ibn Rushd 1126-98) and finally get to the famous doctrine of the Double Truth of St. Thomas Aquinas (1225-74). Long before Newton. The question requires considerable research to understand its complexity by a study of philosophy. Remember that science itself was born out of natural philosophy. The east has systems of philosophy not very much familiar in the west except to those who have made serious attempts to study them in academic circles.
To summarize briefly - really a disservice - the writers mentioned above dealt with the two main aspects which humans experience - reason and faith. Aristotle though not the earliest to explore reason and formulate his system of logic had an influence that went all the way to the period of the Renaissance of the 16th century. The Avrroestic interpretation of Aristotle conflicted with the clergy who held it as heresy.

My wife and I would like to congratulate the BGHS cheerleaders for earning the 2nd place trophy in their division at the O.A.S.S.A. State Competition, this past Sunday night.
Coach Karaffa and the team worked very hard preparing for the competition.
We would also like to especially congratulate Jessica Akers for her part as a senior for helping the team get there. Great Job.

To the Editor: U.S. reaction to Putin in Crimea is criticized

Re: the disaster in Crimea and Ukraine.
Like most Americans who have been around since World War II, I have been horrified to watch the limp wristed response of our government to the land grab just perpetrated by President Putin of the Russian "Federation." President Putin is virtually duplicating Adolf Hitler's takeover of Austria and the Czech Sudatenland in 1937 and 1938. No one in Europe at the time had the nerve to "slap" Adolf's hands and the ultimate result of that lack of resolve was World War II.

To the Editor: Students want BGSU to transition to cleaner energy
Written by Jessica Echales

Bowling Green State University inherits its energy from the American Municipal Power (AMP) annually. The energy they receive is coal and natural gas. In 2004, BGSU installed a natural gas plant within the community of Bowling Green. Dr. Mary Ellen Mazey, the university's president, signed the "American College & University Presidents' Climate Commitment." This is an agreement that states that the university is willing to move towards becoming a carbon neutral campus. With the amount of coal and natural gas that is used, this is not the sustainability and innovation the students and community members know that the administration values.
The Environmental Action Group and 7,000 students want to transition towards cleaner and renewable energy such as wind, solar and geothermal power.
