New, on the website of the Interpreter Foundation:
Part of our book chapter reprint series, this article originally appeared in Science & Mormonism Series 1: Cosmos, Earth, and Man (2016).
Abstract:This panel, comprised of five Latter-day Saint scholars in the Life Sciences (Emily Bates, R. Paul Evans, Steven L. Peck, Michael R. Stark, and Trent D. Stephens), provides personal perspectives on the development of their ideas and their affinities for their professional work. Following these perspectives, they answer a pot pourri of audience questions.
From Interpreter’s own inimitable Jeff Lindsay, a Ph.D. chemical engineer who’s been living in China for years:
“(Deja) View on the Corona Virus”
But don’t be unduly worried about the corona virus; there are plenty of other things lurking out there to destroy us:
Which puts me in mind of one of my very favorite songs:
They’re starving in Spain
There’s hurricanes in Florida
And Texas needs rain
The whole world is festering with unhappy souls
The french hate the Germans, the Germans hate the Poles
Italians hate Yugoslavs, South Africans hate the Dutch
And I don’t like anybody very much!!
For man’s been endowed with a mushroom-shaped cloud
And we know for certain that some lovely day
Someone will set the spark off
And we will all be blown away!!
There’s strife in Iran
What nature doesn’t so to us
Will be done by our fellow man
