Dembski Changes Jobs

William Dembski is leaving Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, for personal reasons after only one year. Dembski was appointed with great fanfare before the 2005-06 school year as both a professor and as the director of a new Center for Science and Theology. A spokesman for the Seminary stated that a replacement would be named soon.

Dembski will become a research professor of philosophy at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas which, like Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, is operated by the Southern Baptist Convention.

As for his reasons for making the move, Dembski said he wanted to work closer to the home in Waco, Texas he has maintained while commuting to Louisville to teach.

I've enjoyed my time at Southern Seminary -- the students were great and the faculty were very warm and welcoming. Family considerations (especially a son dealing with autism) drove my decision.

Whatever differences with his views on science and religion I might have, I wish him and his family well.
