Well, I’ve sent out a final draft of all of my candidacy statements, and the conference call with my Session looks like it will be workable. So, for better or worse, my progress slowly continues.
Knowing how contentious our little fish-pond is right now, I go into this with more than a little trepidation. To be very honest for a moment, though, I think an organization that cannot tolerate genuinely held minority views is dead already. It’ll be incredibly painful if this process doesn’t work out for some reason, but I’m trying to be at peace with letting the process be what it is. I’ll come through to the other side, or I won’t. And that will be that.
With suprise I’ve realized that I have some time to do some reading for enjoyment. First and foremost, I have completed Maus Part I (and am saving up for part II) and the Annotated Hobbit. Along with reading for my internship, I went to the library and saw an anthology of essays entitled Scientists Confront Intelligent Design and Creationism, which so far is just crunchy enough to enjoy without making smoke come out my ears.
If those of you who disagree with me on the whole evolution thing would like to recommend a solid pro-creationism/intelligent design book, I’ll at least see if the local libraries have it, and if they do, I’ll read it too.
