To the editor
One reason we are losing dominance in the sciences is the influence of creationism, which has reached into the highest offices of government. For example, the dominant force determining our policy on stem cell research is not science but a religion that holds that evolution never occurred.
James V. Bradley, retired h.s. biology teacher
