Monday roundup

Don’t forget to register for Origins 2011, the joint meeting of the Creation Biology Society and Creation Geology Society, which takes place in Rapid City, South Dakota (July 28-29). This year’s meeting is a special celebration to mark the fiftieth anniversary of the publication of Whitcomb and Morris’ The Genesis Flood. So in addition to the usual scientific presentations, there’s a pre-meeting geology field trip to the Black Hills (July 27) and a two-day public conference with speakers including John Morris, Randy Guliuzza, Steven Austin, Art Chadwick and Joe Francis (July 29-30). It looks set to be a great event, and I hope to see you there.

On another subject, my article, ‘Deconversion’, which was published in the April 2011 edition of Evangelical Times is now available online. In it, I discuss the lessons that can be learned from the stories of ‘ex-Christians’ like John Loftus, Dan Barker and Robert Price. It’s not directly relevant to the origins issue, although doubts about the historicity of Genesis have certainly played a part in some of these stories. Check it out here.
