To the Editor: Schools, media should not present evolution to public as being a fact

One day when our youngest son was 7 years old, he asked me, "If evolution is true and we came from monkeys, how come we never see people on their way from being monkeys to people?" That seemed to be a pretty insightful question for a little guy. What a great opportunity to introduce him to Genesis 1:1 "In the beginning when God created the heavens and the earth..."
Since scientists who favor evolution have never been able to prove indisputably that the world is the result of evolution, what is the basis of the Feb. 6 headline: "Fact and Faith face off in evolution debate"? Though you personally have the right to choose what you believe and pass that on to your children if you wish, you have no right to make such a huge assumption and foist it off on the public as fact. There are a lot of preposterous assumptions that are unexplainable without the existence of an intelligent being behind it all.
The universe as a result of evolution is not a "fact," it's a theory. And neither the media nor the schools have any business passing it off as truth.
