Michael Whitaker’s July 11 response (“Don’t devalue God of the Bible”) to Cindi Ross Scoppe’s June 11 column (“My God can do anything — even evolution”) referenced the Answers in Genesis website ( answersingenesis.org). The ministry also publishes Answers magazine, which includes scientific findings that prove that God created everything in seven days and that the Genesis flood was an actual event in history. The fact that you will never find this information in most major media is proof to me that there is an agenda to suppress this information so that people will not believe in the Bible.

Until I discovered that there was proof, I also embraced “theistic evolution.” The idea of evolution along with God creating the world in seven days existed side by side, so Christians had to make up their own personal belief. That all changed for me when I picked up Answers .
