Letter to the Editor: 10.26.12

In Professor William Zingrone’s column in the Oct. 19 edition of The News, he noted, “ … the Biblical literalists, the science disparagers … they gotta hate the facts now, they gotta deny reality itself.”

Dr. Zingrone appeared to have no problem after seeing that posters for an event he supported had been taken down, in saying “probably religious person(s) took most of them down.”

I guess the point Dr. Zingrone was making was that when someone disparages science they should have facts but when someone makes disparaging comments regarding people of faith, facts are irrelevant.

I’m not sure what line of thinking Dr. Zingrone was using to make his point – freethinking, reason or science but whatever it was, it gave me a chuckle.
