Hello Paul and Hello to all other members of ASA mailing list!
I am sorry that I did not introduce me before, but I just used this
article to say: "Hello here I am!"
Before I start, please forgive when my English sometimes sounds a bit
strange but it is a "strange" language for me because my native
language is German.
Now, who I am:
Name: Petra Tiefel
Address: Eschenstr. 13; 85416 Langenbach (near Munich); Germany
Profession: Food Chemist
Employer: Technical University Munich, Research Center for Food and
I am actually working on halogenized residues in milk and water
formed through chlorine of chlorine containing disinfection
I am a Christian and a member of the Free Evangelical Church in
Freising. I read your 4 statements of faith and can agree to them.
I subscribed to ASA mailing list because:
a) we don't have a Christian mailing list for scientists like ASA in
b) I would like to listen to and to take part in discussions
concerning Christians in science.
And now my favorite statement: I don't know whether you know the
situation in Germany? We got a lot of church members but *very* few
Christians and even fewer Christians in science.
If you have further questions, I will try to answer them. But not
next week, because I have no Internet access till the 18th of
