Tuesday letters: Religion, science should embrace

June 18, 2013 

Earth spins about 1,000 miles an hour as it orbits its yearly path around the sun at approximately 66,000 miles an hour — well over 1 million miles a day.

The sun travels more than 500,000 miles an hour, one of millions or billions of stars in the Milky Way Galaxy — one of an unknown number in space. The Milky Way travels about 1.4 million miles per hour or 30-plus million miles a day.

In a godly coincidence, Charles Darwin and Abraham Lincoln were both born Feb. 12, 1809, and in their lives they explained our evolution from viruses to present human life. Lincoln in effect said the story of Adam and Eve is likely bunk, but it is impossible to deny God’s existence when you view the stars and heavenly bodies.

For more than 2 trillion days, Earth has orbited the sun and has not been pulled into it or been deflected far away from it. Abraham and his descendants, Jesus Christ, Mohammed, Buddha, Newton and Einstein were real people.

A new religious book including present science needs to be compiled for everyone to agree on a United States of the Universe.
