I thank you for your feedback about my last posts about love.
I have been pointing a friend to CS Lewis’s Four Loves.
Last night at the Univ of Texas at Dallas, Professor Robert Marks spoke on behalf of the Discovery Institute and for an organization called Reasonable Faith.
A few hours before I spoke to a Watermark church apologist about his gracious attitude. His name is Mark Rose. A thoughtful person.
Watermark has a connection to Discovery.
The staff of Discovery got an email from me before the Marks talk about some things.
The student being caught between Crusade staff and biology professor at Yale in the 1990s
Dawkins’s comment that anyone who questioned evolutionary naturalism is insane or evil in the 1980s, and the birth of the ID movement in response to that type of comment from a science popularizer of global reputation.
The devastation at Baylor and in the Dover neighborhood after ID came to both places
Discovery Institute staff Rob Crowther in Seattle quickly responded to a comment I made about the institute’s endorsement of Trump and said fellows have the right to make any comments they want but the Institute takes no position on any politician.
Then I met the local rep for Discovery in Dallas, Pam Bailey. She mentioned the sense of persecution fellows had experienced from the scientific establishment, that evolutionary creationism was just naturalism in disguise, and that Discovery fellows were the humblest people she ever met.
Discovery seems to have two faces. A kind face toward those who support it, and a culture war face toward those who oppose it.
Pam has been educated by Liberty Univ., and Dallas Theol Seminary, both culture war schools in my estimation.
She is a kind person.
I told her I experienced kindness from both atheist journalist Lauri Lebo in Dover and Falwell friend Elmer Towns during the dissertation.
How did we get to this place, that kindness and culture war suspicion and hatred are commingled on a national scale between Christians, and between the saved and the lost.
My main relationship will be with Mark.
But I need to tell Discovery people something about apology making and the kingdom of God extending in the secular world.before the conference they will be doing at Watermark in October.
Your thoughts about this kindness issue and the issue of making amends?
I believe we need more students involved and speaking out.
