Thank You

In General Interest on April 29, 2010 at 9:44 pm

For nearly 2 years now I have been privileged to be on the Prime Time America production team.  Tomorrow’s broadcast is our last and it is also my last day as a full-time employee of the Moody Bible Institute.  I am going to take a few months to finish a couple projects currently on my plate and hope to begin producing new audio features again in July or August of this year.

I am going to keep this current blog active but will not be adding new material to it.  Feel free to look through the archives and I’ll occasionally repost one of my favorites as well.  If you’d like to learn more about what I hope to do next, visit my new site: Ebenim Media.

Thank you so much for listening.

– Paul

In 2008 the movie “Expelled” presented evidence of the discrimination many scientists face in the academic community for not holding to Darwinian evolution.

David Coppedge has been a regular Prime Time America guest over the last few years on a variety of astronomy topics, and he finds himself in an “expelled” situation at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory.  This feature takes a look at his case with his lawyer William J. Becker, Jr., and Casey Luskin, policy analyst for the Discovery Institute.
