Those who argue against everyone, play the role of Devil's advocate, and do not make clear what their worldviews are, are intellectual cowards. These types of people cannot be found to be inconsistent with their views and thus are free to create havoc in an open list like ours.

If you look at the archives of ASA, Pim has been posting since 1997. He
then signed his name as Pim van Meurs. He is also very active on Panda's
thumb (which is an advocacy group - see

Some posts would indicate that a Pim van Meurs is a physics person but
on Panda's thumb, while other posters have biograph's Pim's is:
Pim van Meurs - [Bio pending.]

I would love to have him tell us something about himself and his faith.
He seems to avoid those questions. It helps to know where a person is
coming from and to know the person better. You could for instance
discount my posts since I teach at a smaller Christian College or
conversely know that I might know something about fossils with a PhD
from a major university in the area of Paleobotany (Palynology).

But there may be good reasons for him to avoid those topics but if there
are just say it brother.
