Several notable people have recently joined our forum, sometimes in shadow mode. Some have not yet contributed, but I wanted to acknowledge their presence. We can expect some of them to start poking around.
@Cootsona is a professor at Fuller Seminary, and is the funder of two STEAM grants on which I am named. He has written a book (Mere Science and Christian Faith: Bridging the Divide with Emerging Adults: Greg Cootsona: 9780830838141: Amazon.com: Books), which we will discuss soon. He also, will be on the ASA workshop on Reworking the Science of Adam.
@AndyWalsh is the author of a book on science, faith, and fiction (Faith Across the Multiverse: Parables from Modern Science: Andy Walsh: 9781683070764: Amazon.com: Books). He participated in my A Science Fiction Riddle.
@CPArand is a theologian good friend of mine at Concordia Seminary, the flagship seminary of @J.E.S and @JustAnotherLutheran’s denomination. He has been working out a soon to be published “Lutheran Option” in the Origins debate. I’m often caught wondering with him: What Exactly Am I?
@AJRoberts is a Biologist on staff at Reasons to Believe, and represents the best of their values. I’ve responded to some of her questions about TMR4A before (see Heliocentric Certainty Against a Bottleneck of Two?), and she will be responding on stage at the Dabar conference.
@pnelson is philosopher, YEC, and among the founders of the ID movement about 25 years ago. We have our tussles, but I very much appreciate having him here. I recommend reading this article disputing Is Genesis History? New Film Is Genesis History? Presents a False Dichotomy: I Dissent from My Role in It | Evolution News He is among a growing number of notable ID people who have visited us (@Agauger, @bjmiller, @CaseyLuskin, and @Wayne_Rossiter). Welcome here.
@AntoineSuarez, a catholic philosopher, who participated in a dialogue with @Agauger, @vjtorley and myself to work out https://discourse.peacefulscience.org/t/a-catholic-approach-to-the-genealogical-adam/116.
There are many other people of note who have become regular participants here. Don’t be offended if I have not introduced you yet, its because your reputation precedes you here. Just join me in welcoming all these new scholars here.
In preparation for our upcoming conversations, also, consider buying and reading @AndyWalsh’s and @Cootsona’s books. We will be initiating a thread for each of them in the coming months, to discuss their work in more detail.
