We'll not have to account to Finn McCool

Norman Campbell (Write Back, July 19) asks why no one has complained about the myth of Finn McCool being portrayed at the National Trust exhibit at the Giant's Causeway visitor centre.

That is possibly because no sane person believes it to be anything other than a myth, nor tries to force-feed it as fact to intellectually defenceless children through the education system, nor deploys a highly selective approach to providing scientific evidence to justify their position.

And, doubtless, no one believes we will all have to account to Finn McCool in the end, either.
