I have greatly benefitted from reading your responses to my previous posts. Now, if you can help me with this problem, I may be able to help college students caught between pastors and professors about the science and faith issue.
The Discovery Institute just came here to speak to an audience of 1,000 people, by the way. They return in October to speak at a megachurch.
My thoughts and plan I would like your feedback on
My parents are wealthy and so I don’t need money. I need structure in my week, to the tune of 25-40 hours a week max.
I am thinking of starting a nonprofit focused on the church-university relationship. My dissertation showed how evangelism was damaged due to damaged relationships in the controversy over evolution.
The history of science is a vanishing field and I don’t want to work in academia anyway due to stress and moving around the nation being job requirements.
My job options are right now
manufacturing, healthcare, computers, and legal assisting
I don’t believe at 49 with a history of science PhD that involved interviewing creationists at the highest level that I should be working in any of these fields.
I want to write and speak and I would do it for free and more than anything else I need low-stress structure. Structure consistent in my week to manage bipolar, which I have done by God’s power for 25 years.
I wouldn’t mind speaking to large audiences. That is not stressful for me.
I feel like standing on the street with my resume and a sign that says, “Will teach the Neo-Darwinian synthesis and the Arkansas Creationism Trial for food”.
“In the counsel of many, there is victory.”
Help me with your thoughts as I manage the anxiety of my academic work being a total waste of decades and thousands of dollars.
Thank you so much
