Quoted on the Corner!

The Corner on National Review Online

One of my favorite blogs for politics and other stuff is NRO's The Corner. John Derbyshire wrote a bit about Intelligent Design (a counter-theory to the theory of evolution, the age of the earth, etc), and I responded with an email about my views on the subject, as a devout Mormon and a geologist. Much to my surprise, he posted much of my email on the Corner. Wow! I feel very flattered.

As a geologist, I am sometimes asked about potential interference between my faith and my profession. The short version is--there is no interference. I believe in God and I believe the earth is 4.6 billion years old. The long version? Well, check back here in a few days--I intend to post a longer blog about it soon.

I came across his post too and then by fortune found your blog as well. Congratulations on being posted in the Corner!

I try to maintain a list of Mormon bloggers. I hope you don't mind it if I add Hot Blava to the list.

I can attest that David is a big Corner reader. It's all he did in law school. Getting serious mention there IS a big deal. Congrats.
