Where did first ape come from?

In reading Olivia Carlson's recent letter to The Herald, I found it a tad bit disturbing. I guess you can call me a "creationist." I know it takes a man and a woman to make a baby, so it is not really a stretch for me to believe God created the first two people. As to plants first or man first, I don't have the answers. I don't believe man is supposed to understand everything in the Bible. Maybe that is part of why they call it faith.

Perhaps Ms. Carlson thinks there was a giant explosion and all the little pieces turned into little people and they started having babies. Or maybe we have evolved from apes. Well, it takes a male and a female ape to make a baby ape. So where did the first ape come from? And why did man stop evolving once someone invented the camera? And why am I losing my hair instead of still growing it?

Unlike Ms. Carlson, I do believe that God is perfect and all powerful. But Satan also has power, and perhaps his greatest is the power of deception.

Spencer's positions appear shaky

Two immediate conclusions come to the forefront when considering John Spratt challenger Albert Spencer's position on abortion, school vouchers and the continued occupation of Iraq.

One, he's a nut. Two, this should make him very popular with York County Republicans.
