Science has proven age of earth, despite other bizarre theories

This is in reply to the nonsensical tirade by Ted Hinds in Monday's Times.

Public funding of campaigns would save money, serve us better

Am I the only one appalled by the obscene waste of money we squander to elect our public officials? This has always been an "elect the least of evils" situation but it has, for years, been growing continually worse.

Candidates should not pander to voters based on their faith

In Monday's edition of The Times, a writer takes issue with Joan King's recent column regarding the current anti-science fervor in politics. The writer describes a faith-based alternative theory for the creation of the universe centered on the belief that "God can easily create something that is already old."

Blowout games don’t provide positive lessons

As I looked over the scores for the Friday games, I was disturbed at the large number in which the loser was not only beaten but completely humiliated: 66-7, 44-0, 55-0, 48-3, 55-6. These were scores in just the top 30 listed.

Why would our God create an ‘older’ universe just to fool us?

In response to Mr. Hinds' letter Monday, I must speak out. His position is that God created the universe 10,000 years ago but made everything in it look and test by every scientific way possible to be 14 billion years old.

Universe debate misses fact that God can create something old

Joan King tells Christian skeptics that we are purveyors of "bad science encouraged by bad politics," including our skepticism about man-made global warming, etc. But she really does not like the idea that God created the universe relatively recently. Here, she shows her ignorance of how to think carefully about her presuppositions.

Voters need to learn more about 2012 transportation sales tax

Education on the transportation tax begins should have been an appropriate headline to the Oct. 16 transportation tax article because we need to educate ourselves first before battling it out one way or the other.

Nation’s direction won’t change until we switch drivers

Today's American politics is like a stolen car speeding down a road lined with multiple signs declaring "Bridge Out Ahead."

Emergency crews did not need to race to scene of fatal wreck

The other day, we were driving by an accident on Candler Road. At that point, there were only the utility crew and one police unit at the scene. By the time we got to the light down by Waffle House, an ambulance with full siren blaring and several police units were racing to the scene, right down to a motorcycle unit.

Column on mark contrasting occupy, tea party groups

I read Trevor Thomas' article regarding the tea party and "occupiers" and thought it was a marvelous piece. His comparisons are right on target and can be easily documented and footnoted.

America has lost its way while losing its faith, values

When you're retired and have a lot of time to kill, you've got plenty of time to observe and see what a mess we're in here in America.

Education is valued on job, less so in classroom

I'm 33 years old and I've finally decided to go back to college. I dropped out after my freshman year and truly have no regrets about it. I've travelled all over and I've led a great life. Now I've finally settled on a path I would like to follow and I need to go to school for it.

Concentration of money in US leads to unrest

I am a longtime admirer of the Times, finding the editors and board in this highly partisan region to be level and fair in their observations of things political. I particularly appreciate the willingness to accept expressions of opinion across the whole spectrum.

Protesters see our economy as out of balance

Your editorial, "Biting the hand," in last Sunday's paper shows a real lack of understanding of the Wall Street protests and the current struggles of many middle-class Americans. If you actually listen to the protesters you will see that many cannot find a job, don't have health insurance, have low-paying jobs and student loan debt to pay off or are generally struggling to make ends meet. They are from all age groups and all walks of life.

Guns in church are a violation of what our faith represents

I am not surprised when I see an article on the front page of The Times that reads: "Group takes guns in church case to federal appeals court." Also, it is not a surprise that some local churches are offering differing views on the issue.

Your Views: To avoid CO2 threat, give up plants, water

I'd like to applaud Gerald Tipton of Gainesville (as well as all the other global warming buffs) for his letter last week suggesting that we all curtail our consumption of meat in order to reverse global warming, currently going under the new name of "climate change."

Our Views: Global warming is a hoax aimed at ‘share the wealth’ ideology

In response to the ridiculous diatribe that Gerald Tipton wrote and was printed in The Times on Friday, Sept. 26, I will respectfully say the following: The presupposition that global warming is a fact is erroneous. There are many learned people in the scientific community who do not believe that this theory is true.

Our Views: Stories on Nunn, GOP rally showed bias toward Democrats

From reading recent issues of The Times, one would think there is a real bias in favor of Democrats running for office and that Sam Nunn was running for the U.S. Senate, not his daughter, Michelle. In the Sunday issue, an article was titled: "A father looms large in key Senate race." The reader learns much more about retired Sen. Sam Nunn versus his daughter, Michelle. Are staff thinking if they push the story of Sen. Nunn enough they will change the minds of voters and persuade them to vote for Michelle?

Your Views: It's hard to justify big Oakwood tax increase

I do not live in Oakwood but I have operated a business in the city for more than 10 years. My wife grew up in Oakwood and my father-in-law lives there. Our company has been involved with many charities that have benefited the area and we feel like Oakwood is our second home.

Your Views: Cutting meat from our diets would help ease climate change

Last Sunday, hundreds of thousands marched throughout the world demanding action on climate change as 120 world leaders gathered in New York for the United Nations Summit on Climate Change. What can we do?

Your Views: As with World War II, Middle East war should unite us in common cause

What a blessing to have the documentary "The Roosevelts" presenting an inspiring family biography filling us with the spirit of grace, inspiration and love so necessary in a time of war. By presenting a balanced picture with full, admirable bios of Theodore, Franklin and Eleanor, Ken Burns reminds us of the right spirit, not only of grace and love but of perseverance, courage and determination, optimism and faith necessary for victory.

Your Views: Flowery Branch’s Gold Out for CURE set in late player’s memory

This year marks the third annual Gold Out for CURE at Flowery Branch High School. What once began as a small idea has now exploded into one of the school's biggest traditions.

Your Views: Pro football is a worthless pastime played by violent people

OK, so again an important program was interrupted for the "nfl." I print nfl in small letters because that's how important it is to me. So they are special people who can kick a ball around. Wow! That really takes education.

Your Views: Lions Clubs look to grow, add to service

Your article Sunday concerning challenges to area civic clubs did a good job in pointing out the struggles most civic clubs have in carrying on the work that they do.

Your Views: Hall County’s big heart helps refill food bank

I would personally like to thank the good and generous people of Hall County for their contributions of canned and boxed food items that helped to restock the Georgia Mountain Food Bank. Your very generous donations will help feed the hungry and needy among us in Hall County and four surrounding counties.

Your Views: Letter writer, columnist defend weak presidents, attack Bush

I do not make it a habit of reading your left-leaning (Your Views) section. This is in direct response to Gabriel Shippy's comments about how George Bush got us in a war.

Your Views: Funding for Obama’s war is already there

To fund Mr. Obama's war, the Pentagon, at this time, has nearly $60 billion, unspent, in the Overseas Contingency Operations Fund.
