This is in reply to Romm Jackson Jr. (Readers' Forum, May 15). Jackson claims that Darwinism is a theory that has been widely tested and that creationism is not provable. I must admit that creationism might not have scientific proof, but I would like to point out that neither does Darwinism. There has never been any concrete evidence of Darwinism.

Darwinism is the rebirth of medieval science when people believed that living things — like maggots — were born from nonliving things like rotten meat. These beliefs were put to rest after Louis Pasteur discovered that maggots came not from rotten meat but were attracted to it. Darwinism, on the other hand, believes that for living things to exist, they must have come from nonliving things. I guess the medieval scientists were right after all.
