SUGGESTING, as did your correspondent, that evolution and creationism have equal status as hypotheses (TES, July 28) is dangerous relativism. If this spreads to schools will teachers also let pupils take pi to be 4 or any other figure of their choice? Will any interpretation of literature be acceptable, regardless of te evidence it presents?
If there is "as much concrete evidence for creationism as there is for evolution" why do even the UK's major Christian churches now consider the Genesis story to be metaphor not fact?
