It preserved my own faith from being destroyed in high school.
Do you see apologetics as primarily an “offensive” task (showing how other beliefs systems are insufficient) or defensive (showing that Christianity is truth)?
Both, really, but oftentimes the best defense can be a good offense.
What kind of scientific background do you have?
I got through some college-level science classes while I was still in high school, but that’s it. I don’t have formal university training in science, so that means I am limited to drawing from the work of others in the field.
It doesn’t seem like your formal education is in the sciences, has most of your learning been from CMI folks or books/internet/etc. ?
All of the above.
What would be something you’d like to learn about the folks here at Peaceful Science?
Right now I seem to be in the vast minority, representing the YEC viewpoint. Other than @stcordova who invited me, perhaps the only one, other than @r_speir whose views are perhaps a bit murky in this area. Why the under-representation? Have there been others in the past that have left?
Also: is Peaceful Science endorsed by or run by any other outside organization?
What would be something you’d like people here to learn about you?
I am a big fan of retro gaming. On a CRT. I love to go thrifting and look for games and VHS tapes. Not that any of that is relevant to science, unless you’re counting computer science.
