I asked my father and Paul Nelson to reply to as many of your questions about the Great Expectations conference as they could–beginning with the obvious: “Is it true that Paul Nelson believes that the world is only 6,000 years old?” (I paraphrase, but that idea came up in the comments.)
They’ve given their answers to a few more questions, including: “Do you guys believe in intelligent design?” and “Do you actually know anything about science?”
Perhaps most interestingly, you can hear my father talk about the technological and medical innovations to which this kind of research agenda might lead, if it proves fruitful.
I experimented with reading your questions out loud and having them reply directly. Their answers were really interesting, but I discovered afterwards to my dismay that the sound quality on the video was lousy. I wasn’t close enough to the microphone and neither was my father. I figured everyone would just tune out after ten seconds, so I asked them to do it again.
I did upload the bad-quality video to YouTube, if you want to try to puzzle it out. You can probably discern that I tried to make sure everyone’s questions were at least asked.
This recording worked better, but the answers aren’t as direct. I do think they’re responding, though, to the spirit of your questions. Do you agree?
