From 1980-84, Paul was a member of the Creation Science Fellowship in Pittsburgh, sponsor of the International Conference on Creationism. After receiving his B.A. in philosophy with a minor in evolutionary biology from the University of Pittsburgh, Paul entered the University of Chicago, where he received his Ph.D. (1998) in the philosophy of biology and evolutionary theory. His research interests include the relationship between developmental biology and our knowledge of the history of life, the theory of intelligent design, and the interaction of science and theology. Our members will recognize Dr. Nelson as the narrator of the video documentary from Illustra Media, entitled “Metamorphosis,” which we discussed at a recent RMCF meeting. He was the keynote speaker at the ICC 2013 awards ceremonial evening event where the Byron Nelson award was presented to Drs. John Baumgardner, Russ Humphreys and Steve Austin. His topic that evening, which we will review and discuss, was entitled, “What Ever Happened to Darwin’s Tree of Life?” He addresses the captivating question, “If the theory of Common Descent were false, how would you know it?” Genomic research has revealed the ubiquity of so-called “orphan genes,” which falsify Common Descent.
There is no cost to attend this presentation and free refreshments will be served after the meeting. The RMCF library will be available at the meeting and is free to all RMCF members. Books are available for sale at our book table in the fellowship hall. Please note that you can join or extend your membership and donate to RMCF online. Streaming video of past speakers to RMCF are also available at the website.
Free refreshments will be provided after the meeting.
