Although most of us may prefer to ignore it, others to ridicule it, and
still others to wring their hands that "they" have won, I think we do have a
responsibility to address major events such as the Nov. 5 RATE conference.
I just received a letter from an ASA member who described himself as
"agnostic" in the area of origins. As a scientist, but not in the physical
sciences, he sincerely asked whether the RATE activity had indeed uncovered
new issues that needed to be addressed. He wondered how ASA was planning to
cover the conference.

There are still many undecided folks out there who are looking to the ASA
for guidance. Yes, we have our archives and our websites on the age of the
earth but there is a need for us to provide balanced responses to
well-publicized events like RATE. The question is just how to do it and who
is willing to spend the time to do it right.
