Questioning a creator

This is my reply to the letter of Joan McKay as published on June 14.

How does one assume the absolute necessity of a "divine creator" of our universe and life? We have supposedly grown beyond the superstitions and unfounded beliefs of the Middle Ages. We have ample evidence that life may have appeared and evolved on this planet without the necessity of divine intervention.

There are many planets in this universe and, perhaps, other universes, where conditions favourable to life exist.

Such alien life could, conceivably, have developed in a superior way that would not lead to a dominant species intent, as ours apparently is, on destroying itself and the environment that sustains it. If humans, as a species, are creations of a superior being, we are badly flawed.
