Sir: The flaw in the Rev David Keen's dismissal of cultural fashions in recent biblical and theological scholarship (letter, 15 September) is that there was never a time when this was not the case.

The "certainties" of a bronze-age Middle Eastern tribe are now seen to have been very much culturally determined. In contrast, modern cosmology is based on cumulative, verifiable evidence which also acknowledges its limitations and can be improved upon.
