Man was not an accident and reflects an image and likeness unique in the created order.

Leaving aside the accident question -- he should read Stephen J Goulds book about the Burgess Shale but maybe he doesn't believe in fossils -- what is this rubbish about a unique likeness. Hasn't he ever seen an ape or a chimp ? Why do we share so much DNA with other living things ? Even if you just look at the human skeleton and the skeleton of most other mammals (eg whales) you can see the similarities: two legs, two arms, five fingers/thumbs at the edge of each leg and arm ...

What a load of rubbish. The NYTimes should be ashamed to allow this to be published. Would they publish a similar article questioning chemistry versus alchemy, astronomy versus astrology?
