I wandered by this forum when I discovered that there had been some (brief) discussion of one of my Panda’s Thumb essays awhile ago, and that there may be a chance to engage some people from the Discovery institute (and maybe wrap up one or two loose ends).

While this doesn’t seem too likely at the moment, in the meantime I have discovered an interesting community. One of the things I do in my day job is interact with people at undergraduate-focused schools, helping to bring genomics and bioinformatics into the class and lab. (See this consortium and this new program.) One community that seems to be (mostly) missing from these efforts is schools with a decidedly religious (Christian) emphasis. I have met a few people from such schools here, and I am hoping to learn how I can generate some interest amongst these people in undergraduate genomics and bioinformatics education. I don’t have a plan yet, other than to pick Joshua’s brain from time to time. But I figure just meeting some people is a good place to start.

@patrick, this remains among my favorite quotes from the whole forum.

And I outline your story, which would still be really entertaining to pull together sometime too.

It seems, also, for all your bombastic playfulness…

I think you are hitting it right on the head here.

Thanks @rogero for writing up a summary of this: Our Front Porch.
