The simple fact is science evolves

"Science is a constant journey to reveal the truth. Religion convinces you that you have already got there".

Stella Wilson (Write Back, December 1) makes a number of silly remarks which merely illustrate why one can never get a science education from creationist websites.

These are dismissed and discredited in the science world, because they contain nothing of value and are often based on "miracles" and supernaturalism for explanations.

Of course, science does not know everything, nor does it pretend to. That is why the journey continues.

As new facts are revealed, old ideas are abandoned, which gives us confidence in their veracity.
