Kurt Wise

De CriaçãoWiki, a enciclopédia da ciência da criação.

Kurt Patrick Wise (Nascido::1959) é um criacionista da Terra jovem americano com formação em paleontologia. Ele recebeu um B.A. em Ciências Geofísicas da Universidade de Chicago, seguido por um M.A. e um Ph.D. em paleontologia da Universidade de Harvard em Cambridge, MA. Em Harvard, ele estudou sob a direção do renomado cientista Stephen Jay Gould.

Por dezessete anos, Wise ensinou no Bryan College, em Dayton, no Tennessee. Em maio de 2006, foi anunciado que ele estaria tomando uma posição como professor de Ciências e Teologia e substituindo o proponente do design inteligente William Dembski como diretor do Center for Theology and Science do Southern Baptist Theological Seminary em Louisville, no Kentucky.[1] Desde o outono de 2009 ele está servindo como professor de Ciências Naturais e como diretor do Creation Research Center no Truett-McConnell College em Cleveland, na Geórgia. Atualmente é professor de Biologia[2] e Presidente da Divisão de Matemática e Ciências.[3]. Ele também é o diretor do Creation Research Center no Truett-McConnell College. Até à data, as suas áreas de experiência de ensino têm incluído geologia, paleontologia, biosistemática, biologia, filosofia e ética na ciência, origens biológicas e físicas, doutrina cristã e as ciências naturais.[1]

Dentro da comunidade da ciência da criação, Kurt é talvez melhor conhecido pelo avanço da disciplina conhecida como baraminologia, que é a identificação e estudo dos baramin (tipos criados).[Carece de fontes] Ele tem mais de uma dúzia de publicações nas áreas de ciência e teologia. Ele fez quatro aparições na televisão e tem três vídeos publicados. Ele é autor ou coautor de dúzias de artigos em publicações de ciência e teologia.[1]

O notável ateu Richard Dawkins se referiu a Wise (um pouco ironicamente) como um "criacionista honesto".[4]
