I do value knowing something about other people on this list as well as
their particular skills and interests. It is good to know that Stephen Krogh
is a fellow cyclist, Dave Siemens likes annoying the English etc. And that
Terry's a good Calvinist and George a Lutheran etc.

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.
