Friday letters: Creationism simply lacks evidence

Everyone in South Carolina should be aware that if state Sen. Mike Fair and Fred Kerr (“Teach creationism alongside evolution,” March 18) get their way and allow creationism to be taught in science classes, the Legislature is going to have to pass a bill extending the school year by a month or two.
