I read you profile on Mary Anning a Christian who was into paleobiology before anyone could spell the word. Was that it? Did the old earth science gradually burn off the Christians going into geological or paleo science? Who is doing that now?
Simon Conway Morris holds a Chair in Evolutionary Palaeobiology at the University of Cambridge. His research interests include the study of Burgess Shale-type faunas, the first appearance of skeletons, and the Cambrian explosion. He is published in Nature and Cell, among other peer-reviewed journals, and is the author of two books, The Crucible of Creation and Life’s Solution: Inevitable Humans in a Lonely Universe. His interests extend to the public understanding of science and, as a convinced Christian believer, in the place of faith in an age of science.
