In Response to: The People Who Saw Evolution [6]

I liked the two letters in the Oct. 8 issue in response to Brian Solik ’84’s creationist letter (July 9). Ironically, I find I’m forced to disagree with the first writer, Greg Schwed ’73, who expressed his disappointment that PAW printed Mr. Solik’s letter without a rebuttal. The gripe is unwarranted. By printing his letter, PAW fulfilled its obligation to Oliver Wendell Holmes and J.S. Mill: “freedom for the thought we hate.” And by so doing, PAW ignited those two eloquent, literate (and, to my mind, irrefutable) ripostes from Mr. Schwed and Dr. Alan Kohn ’53.
