Thanks for this very telling and worrying e-mail, highlighting your problem
and the bible graduate who was clearly taught a very harsh version of the
Gospel.

The issues raised would fill a few books

I enjoyed meeting Prof. Miller prior to the event and talked to him about
some of his debates with Dawkins and Hitchens over science/religion. I also
got to ask a question after his presentation in Q&A time.

It was a Miller YouTube broadcast that first brought the news to me about
the DNA evidence for human biological evolution from lower primates-
chromosome #2. If it wasn't for the ASA and Francis Collins giving me
reason to pause, I almost left the faith over it.

Afterwards, I joined a group for an after-dinner discussion- most of them
were atheists (one was a former Bible school graduate in the process of
turning atheist- his issue was the 99% of people going to hell).

I told Prof. Miller I appreciated his "ministry," and I do.

FYI- see below.

Kenneth Miller is famous in the evolution/creation debate, as a court
witness and author. He's a Catholic that fully accepts evolution. You can
see him in action on many YouTube video clips. See below. Tell your
Portland Oregon friends.
