The article ” ‘Big bang’ of suits focus on evolution” [ NLJ, Sept. 12] includes a quotation from me in which the word “evolution” was inserted in brackets in place of the phrase I actually used in speaking to the reporter. What I actually said, somewhat clumsily, was: “Students are being taught that we know that unintelligent natural processes explain all of evolution is a fact, and we don’t know it is a fact.” While the substitution was, I am confident, merely intended to simplify the comment without changing its meaning, your readership of lawyers no doubt is very familiar with the fact that a change of word often can be cited by opponents as a change in meaning. I do not question evolution per se, but do question the proposition that all of the evolution that has occurred can be explained as the result of unintelligent natural processes.
