|He is probably making sure he has all the latest information in order to correct the problems with "Explore Evolution" before this symposium for science teachers.|
According to that link, the symposium at Biola will have parallel discussions on the physical sciences and the life sciences. Since none of the named speakers have any training in the life sciences, I wondered who would be leading those sessions. When you look at the schedule, it appears that the life science sessions will be led by Paul (a philosopher) and Mike Keas, who is described as having "earned a Ph.D. in the history of science from the University of Oklahoma." Personally I think that another Sooner, ERV, might have been a better choice. Even though she is still a graduate student, I'd wager that her understanding of biology far outstrips that of Nelson or Keas.
Or maybe expertise in the relevant discipline is not really important, since it seems that this symposium is really just an opportunity to flog EE as a science textbook. The title for Keas' two presentations is "Biology: Using the “Explore Evolution” Curriculum".
Paul, since the title of one of your presentations is "Recent Advances in Intelligent Design", perhaps you can tell us what some of those advances might be.
Thanks in advance
