I am a German scientist (paleo-entomologist), specialized on the fossil history and systematics of insects (esp. dragonflies), the most diverse group
I am also a senior scientist at the Biologic Institute in Redmond and senior fellow with Discovery Institute’s Center for Science and Culture, working on
paleontological evidence for Intelligent Design theory.
I am a devout Roman Catholic Christian and subscribe to classical theism as world view. I strongly oppose atheism, naturalism, materialism, reductionism, and scientism. I have not become a Christian theist in spite of being a scientist but because of it. My conversion was based on a careful
critical evaluation of empirical data and rational arguments, following the evidence wherever it leads. I am skeptical
of the Neodarwinian theory of macroevolution and support Intelligent Design theory for purely scientific reasons.
