Correction for Conaway

What Frank Conaway got wrong about Charles Darwin's theory

Aside from the rest of the content of Del. Frank Conaway's letter published October 26 in the Sun ("Conaway: My views on evolution are not pertinent"), I would like to correct his misstatement of Charles Darwin's theory.

The theory does not state that humans evolved from apes or monkeys, rather that humans, apes and monkeys all descended from a common ancestor.

Walter Levy, Pikesville
