Sid Galloway (Just an OLD sheepdog of the GOOD SHEPHERD) describes his attendance of the symposium:
|Biological Information - New Perspectives Symposium |

The following Bio-Info conference was an inspiring example of truly critical, logikos thinking in the scientific community. The symposium was not sponsored by Cornell, though Dr. John Sanford, Cornell geneticist and inventor of the Gene Gun was a principle coordinator.
(Sanford is the inventor of the Biolistic Gene Gun for genetic engineering, Cornell professor for 30 years, 80 scientific papers, 30 patents, and author of GENETIC ENTROPY: The Mystery of the Genome.
Thank you to all who prayed for this event, and who helped reduce my expenses.
It was a privilege being invited to attend the BI-NP Symposium at
Cornell University last summer. Twenty-three scientists from around the world, representing various fields of science presented to attendees from many countries, including Korea, China, Germany, Canada, United Kingdom, Russia, and the United States. Among those attending, 50% were PhD’s, 25% were PhD candidates, and the rest were an assortment of diverse individuals - the least among them - me.
The BINPS at Cornell University was a purely scientific conference, with no public elements of religion in the presentations or discussion. However, there was a great deal of fruitful private dialogue involving philosophical, theological, and teleological implications among presenters and attendees during our free time. The coordinators’ decision to eliminate any public religious content was understandable given their sincere commitment as a group to trace only the "science" evidence to its best and most logical conclusion (IBE – Inference to the Best Explanation.
