Why the argument?

Why the argument?
by Suchitra Samanta (Roanoke Times)
Finally, as a Hindu, my 5,000-year-old religion subscribes to several versions of “genesis.” I see no need to “prove” these. Nor do I buy into the Genesis of the Bible as “history.” I don’t need to. I simply respect the true meaning of what Hinduism, or Christianity (or any other belief system) has to offer, by way of giving life meaning. As a social scientist, I will continue to emphasize for my students at Virginia Tech the science behind the theory of evolution.

You gotta love that name, and attitude.
