Hi Terry,
Just got back from the conference (76 F) to wonderful Edmonton (-30 C)!!!
The Lord may have created all humans equally, but He certainly DID NOT
create all places where humans live equally.

I expect Stephen Jones or James Bell to wrap your priestly robes around
your neck to choke you! But as one of the "hoi polloi" with regards to
biochemistry, I absolutely agree with you.

The most interesting time of the conference was "discovering" Michael
Denton. We spend many nights till 2AM discussing the issues. Great, great
guy with an amazing sense of humor. The group might be interested to know
he is thoroughly committed (and has always been) to common descent. But
his view of evolution is utterly teleological, and it is the chanced-based
evolution that he denounced in this 1984 "Evolution: A Theory In Crisis."

He has also just finished a book on the biological anthropic view. I've
got the manuscript and it looks very good. It may well prove to be a
great contribution to this origins debate.
