I knew Brian Stone when I was at the University of Western Australia. The
university position you have for him is correct. He is a Baptist, and a few
years ago had strong fundamentalist leanings. If he has published anything
in the Christian area, I have never come across it. He may well regard
himself as a creation scientist, but I would certainly not have regarded
him as an "outstanding, outspoken creation scientist", in the sense that he
has made any contributions to creation science thinking. He has a good
reputation as a mechanical engineer.
