Thanks much for sending the presentation, which I've looked over and will
be studying more in depth this week. There are small points I might
quibble about*, but overall I like it a lot. I assume your target
audience is one with a fair amount of both theological and scientific
I found out yesterday that teaching high schoolers (9th and 10th grade)
is challenging. They really know very little about anything! I have two
more weeks -- I hope I can get some fundamentals across anyway.
* liberals, for instance, are not likely to assert that "science explains
something so God was not involved." At least not the liberals I know and
respect. Liberals tend (I think) to emphasize the immanence of God as
involved deeply (fundamentally) in everything (Whitehead and Griffin).
They do frequently make the error (as I have told some of them) by
saying conservatives only speak of the transcendence of God -- God is
"out there" and not normally present. I have always thought that both
attributes are important, and both have been taught in every fellowship
I've been part of -- Evangelical Brethren, Quaker, Covenant, Church of
God, Southern Baptist, Nazarene, and PCUSA.
