Jesus and Darwin--Love or Hate?

Creationist Ken Ham along with his entourage, will be in Johnson City this week to spread his superstition. He wrote a post about my church on his blog: Does Elizabethton Presbyterian Church in Tennessee Teach Heresy? I hope you will enjoy that.

Dave Hogan and Carl Swann of WJCW 910 AM's
Thinking Out Loud hosted Ken Ham today. You can listen to the podcast here. They will interview me about Evolution Weekend tomorrow at 7:40 a.m. Do tune in if you can. I will make sure to post the podcast on this here blog.

Also, I am excited to announce that Wayne Winkler of 89.5 WETS will interview Dr. Michael Zimmerman, founder of the Clergy Letter Project and Evolution Weekend, and me between 7:30 and 8:00 a.m. Saturday morning on the WETS Community Forum. Check Dr. Zimmerman's latest article about Evolution Weekend.
