A matter of faith

Brian McClinton (Write Back, December 7) makes fun of Culture Minister Edwin Poots because he believes the world was created some 6,000 years ago.

Of course, Mr Poots was not there to observe it so, therefore, he cannot prove it.

Mr McClinton probably believes that the universe came in to existence some 14 billion years ago. Of course, Mr McClinton was not there to observe it, so therefore he cannot prove it.

What's the difference between the views of Mr Poots and Mr McClinton? Nothing! Both believe something based on faith!
