Paul A. Nelson
|The divine comedy|
Paul A. Nelson is a young earth creationist with a PhD in philosophy from the University of Chicago. This apparently allows him to write authoritatively about science, as long as he calls himself a 'philosopher of biology'.He is supposed to be publishing a work criticizing the principle common descent derived from his thesis, but this has been forthcoming for some time.  His unpublished book was described in the wedge document as offering a 'powerful alternative' to evolution, which presumably means it will consist of the same old creationist PRATTs dressed up with scientific jargon and new scientific research being taken entirely out of context.
