I long to see the Bible upheld and proclaimed responsibly and carefully, and discussions about science and faith put onto a sensible footing. Bad arguments don’t build faith — on the contrary, they undermine it. It grieves me when I see well-intentioned but badly informed Christians getting all excited about the latest flaky meme from Answers in Genesis or whoever, and rushing headlong into the debate with all guns blazing, only to prove to everyone in earshot that they haven’t the faintest idea what they are talking about. I don’t really mind how old you think the earth is, or who or what you think did or didn’t evolve from what, just as long as you’re getting your facts straight and you properly understand what you’re talking about.
I work as a software developer in the south of England, currently building software for the travel industry. I read Natural Sciences at Cambridge University, studying physics in the Cavendish Laboratory. My father was a pastor, Bible teacher and theologian, who wrote a Bible course for Charismatic Christians called The Way of the Spirit.
