Well-paced, enjoyable Summer Grindle, 17, of La Crescenta is a junior at Los Angeles County High School for the Arts. Under Ivan Reitman's direction, the sci-fi action comedy has evolved from his seminal 1984 "Ghostbusters," to this year's technologically improved "Evolution." Once again, civilians outsmart the government and save the world from extraterrestrial domination. Striking the right balance between all the elements, "Evolution" is a genuinely funny, enjoyable, well-paced movie.

The gigantic topic “ Should creationism be taught in schools? ” was posed in the Sept. 9 In Theory page. I recognize that many through their faith do believe in creationism, but I personally believe that logic and science unquestionably stand behind the truth of evolution. The science behind it is overwhelming, at least for those who are willing to open their eyes and mind to the vast trove of worldwide supporting evidence. I also believe that God need not be dismissed when one supports evolution because it could represent one of his greatest accomplishments.

I am writing this letter as a response to the various comments made by some members of the local clergy in the In Theory section of the Glendale News-Press (“The evolution of science classes,” Jan. 12). The Glendale News-Press referred to a recent U.S. National Academy of Sciences defense of evolution as the core principle of biology, arguing that it must be taught in public schools. The academy’s position also is that intelligent design and creationism are not science and therefore should not be taught in public school science classes.

Wait until pool can make bigenough splash Regarding ?Surplus saves cash for pool,? Feb. 12: Glendale should have a public swimming pool. At one time, we had three public pools. However, in today?s economy, can we afford the pool? We should only put in a pool if it is an eight-lane regulation pool. Why spend millions on a pool that would not qualify for swim meets, water polo and other activities? Let?s not skimp on the size. Let?s have eight lanes. DOROTHY DASH Glendale ?

No debate on 'design' My heart sank when I read Saturday's "Faith" section discussion of intelligent design ("Should 'Intelligent Design' be taught in school?") Perhaps it was the fault of the way the question was posed, but every spokesperson for local religions demonstrated the same confusion of the issue. There is no controversy. There are no "two sides" to be taught, anymore than there are two sides in the flat earth "controversy." This misunderstanding comes from an ignorance of what science is, and what evolution is. Evolution is a scientific fact, as rock solid as the theory of gravity or the theory of quantum dynamics.

Glendale Unified School District has not yet had to deal with the question of Intelligent Design as an added science curriculum but with school boards in other states, such as Pennsylvania and Kansas, challenging the Darwin theory, how insulated is California? The Intelligent Design verses Darwin's Theory of Evolution debate has made national headlines lately with the U.S. District Court ruling against the Dover, Pa. school board. The Dover board had decided to add Intelligent Design as science in its classrooms.

o7President Bush last week told reporters that "intelligent design" -- that life is so complex that a higher power must have created it -- should be discussed alongside evolution when teaching about the origins of life. Do you agree? f7 Right off the top we agree that education is one of the sources of creating equality among the citizens of the world and the teaching of "intelligent design" in the schools is a step in the right direction. The Baha'i Faith teaches that God created the universe, that mankind having evolved over eons is and always was separate from the animal.
