My MHA Presentation and Reconciling Science with Scripture

Here is a copy of my MHA presentation text, “Early LDS Attempts to Reconcile Scripture with Science: Pre-Mormon Pre-Adamites and Intellectual (In)Dependence.” As the text read at the meeting, it lacks footnotes and citations, but here is some of the bibliography.

This presentation was distilled from a much longer paper still under construction. I intend to submit it for publication somewhere in Fall. And of course, I’ll be speaking about interpretation and evolution (likely topic) in August at BYU, truth, scripture, and Genesis at the FAIR Conference in August, and reading the Old Testament in context at the Sperry Symposium in October at BYU.

I tend not to accept friend requests from people I’m not acquainted with.
