Questions evolution and climate-change theories

I read with interest your editorial, "Anti-science panel dooms Darwin Day," (Feb. 14), comparing doubters of Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection to doubters of global warming.

My concern is our educational institutions are confusing theory with fact with the backing of the government at the potential cost of hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars. I was taught Darwinian evolution in a southern high school in the 1960s, but my teacher had the integrity to call it a theory. Studies provided by biologist Lynn Margulis suggesting symbiotic relationships drive evolution have caused me to now doubt natural selection as the main driving force in evolution.

By the same token, I do not accept global warming as fact. I think the theory is wrong and I do not know how we can ignore the predicted weather models being completely erroneous for this century so far.
