For the Kokomo Tribune

Look to the Bible for answers

Science offers the possibility that the universe originated from a big bang. The Bible says that God created all things in six days.

That could have been a big bang. Science scours the heavens for extraterrestrial life, and some scientists indicate that the earth has been visited by extraterrestrials. The Bible says that angels have visited and delivered God’s messages to selected individuals. Science tells us that lack of adequate rest is bad for our health, which we know to be true from experience. The Bible directs us to take a complete rest on the seventh day. Science amazes us with the discovery of quantum particles that travel through space in the form of waves that spread out and are in many places at the same time. The Bible reveals God who is everywhere present. Science warns us that climate change will bring upon us severe, dire effects. The Bible predicts that in the “end times” there will be many significant cataclysmic events throughout the earth. Science proposes that there may be parallel or multiple universes. The Bible tells us that there is a new heaven and a new earth.

Who knows? Perhaps one of these days, science will catch up to the Bible.

What choice do we have in November?

I read with interest and some confusion the letter submitted by Mr. Amatuzzo in the Friday, Sept. 7, issue of the Kokomo Tribune. It was regarding Mitt Romney being a “mass murderer” because of the laws passed by the Legislature when Mr. Romney was governor of Massachusetts.

Well, gee, we don’t have much of a choice then on Nov. 6, do we? A governor who is a mass murderer and President Obama who voted for abortion at all stages of a woman’s pregnancy when he was a member of the Illinois Senate. He also believes that homosexual marriage is all right. Those are in the Democrat platform, by the way. I suggest that Mr. Amatuzzo view the movie “2016 Obama’s America.”

It was very enlightening. It’s simply the story of Mr. Obama’s life.
