Is Moreland a biologist? If not, he seems like an odd person to critique evolution.

Hello Bob,

Thank you for taking the time to comment. Moreland's credentials are as follows:

- B.S. in chemistry from the University of Missouri
- Th.M. in theology from Dallas Theological Seminary
- M. A. in philosophy from the University of California-Riverside
- Ph.D. in philosophy from the University of Southern California.

Also, I would humbly advise you not to dismiss Moreland's arguments simply because he is not a biologist. It seems to me, that the content of his arguments matter more. Furthermore, all of us make judgements based upon the evidence available to us all the time without having a degree in a given field. A prime example of this is medicine. I have gone to the doctor on more than one occasion and been given a diagnoses and a few options. Then, I need to make a decision. While I don't have a medical degree, I get information from an informed source. I would argue that Moreland has done the same thing with Darwinism.

Take care
