Bible more persuasive

    A recent writer thanked "Charles Darwin's literary powers of persuasion" for his decision to not fear God.
    I fail to find anything very persuasive in "The Origin of Species," chapter VI, subheading "Organs of extreme perfection and complication." Here Darwin wrote, "To suppose that the eye . . . could have been formed by natural selection, seems, I freely confess, absurd in the highest possible degree."
    I am persuaded to accept as much more sensible the claims of Proverbs 20:12, "The hearing ear and the seeing eye, the Lord has made both of them."
