For several years now, I have kept my mouth shut as someone with the same name as myself has periodically written letters to both The Source and The Bulletin about Intellegent Design. As a person who works in the medical field and considers himself a man of science, the whole theory of Intelligent Design frustrates and annoys me. That being said, I have never chimed in on this debate because quite frankly, I believe that ID as a "scientific" theory is such an outlandish concept that it doesn't even deserve a response. Although I respect the desire for other Source readers to chime in on this debate (if you can call it that), a response just grants the ID theorists more attention. And ultimately, it's unlikely that someone who truly believes in ID will allow their position to be swayed by scientific argument.

To be honest, I have only responded this time because I am tired of people asking me why I write these things.

I, Scott B Weber, do not believe in ID. But because I believe in Freedom of Speech, Scott Weber can believe whatever he wants. I also believe that faith is a very powerful thing, and if Scott Weber's faith makes him believe in ID, then so be it. Arguing against someone's faith is never a good idea.

Scott B. Weber, Bend

  • The Other Half of the Yoga Equation

    The Source Issue 45 (Nov. 10) contained wonderful information about the forms of yoga offered in our vicinity. Most of the information covered pertained to the socially enjoyable forms of yoga enjoyed by the folks who use yoga mats and bendy posturing as they concentrate on improving their blissful breathing techniques. These physical forms of yoga are the beautiful compliments to the mental, mindful and meditative forms of yoga that balance the larger yoga (yogic) equation. Yoga is basically a non-denominational practice aimed at balancing the physical (body) existence with the meta-physical (mind) reality. The ensuing mind-body balance creates the union required for an increased "understanding" (consciousness) of the "living experience."

  • Walden's Corporate Servitude

    In the time-honored American tradition of peaceful civil disobedience, I am proud to be one of eight Central Oregon citizens arrested on December 5 in Congressman Greg Walden's Bend office. At our January 26 trial we plan to present a compelling defense. This act of dissent follows years of futile attempts to encourage the Congressman to hold open, unscripted town meetings accessible to a majority of his constituents. The Congressman has grown so suspicious of impromptu encounters with ordinary citizens that on Saturday he required a Bend Police Department intervention that enabled him to enter the Water Project meeting at the Chamber of Commerce through the back door. (Greg, we are nonviolent people who believe that democracy thrives on open dialogue and transparency; there is no reason to avoid us.)

  • Doors of Equality Swing Both Ways

    I had to respond to "What's Wrong with Siri," (News, 1-4) since Apple's Siri isn't the problem. Three hours before I read, "What's wrong with Siri," I went to a store in town and complimented the cashier that this was the nicest "dollar" store I had ever been in.
