Southern Adventist University welcomes Paul Nelson, PhD, a biology philosopher involved in the
intelligent design debate internationally for three decades, to speak for the annual Origins Convocation on Thursday, Feb. 22, at 11 a.m. in Collegedale Church of Seventh-day Adventists on campus.

He lectures frequently at colleges and universities throughout the United States and globally, speaks on American and Italian national public radio, and writes for popular publications as varied as Oslo Dagbladet and Christian Research Journal.
Nelson’s scholarly articles have appeared in journals and book chapters, he co-authored the biology
