Mormons Debate Intelligent Design
In response to what he calls a fatwa issued by LDS theologian Joe Maynard decreeing that membership in the Church of Latter Day Saints requires a literal interpretation of the Creation as well as support for intelligent design, Thomas Reed Grover of Logan, Utah has this to say:
I am LDS - born in the covenant, got my Eagle Scout award, served a mission, love funeral potatoes, was married in the temple and I think green Jell-O with carrot shavings is fetch’n tasty. And I know that the earth is older than 6,000 years and that evolution offers irrefutable facts (a semantic argument about the word “theory” is hardly sufficient refutation).
