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 Christian theist, and strongly oppose atheism, materialism, naturalism, and
scientism. I have not become a Christian in spite of being a scientist but because
of it. My conversion was purely based on a critical evaluation of empirical data and philosophical arguments, following the evidence wherever it leads. I reject the Darwinian
theory of evolution and support Intelligent Design theory for purely scientific and metaphysical (but not religious) reasons.
