Stork, MS, MA (theol.), PhD, is an independent researcher, a former Honorary Fellow of the Australian Catholic University, and a Fellow of the Institute for the Study of Christianity and Science & Technology (ISCAST).

ISCAST fellow Mike Clarke recently featured on an episode of City Bible Forum's Big Questions show. The big question was: Why preserve anything? And, in particular, why should we be concerned with the impact of fire on fauna? Mike is a biologist and bushfire expert. The discussion considered the impact of the bushfires and why we should be concerned about preserving anything at all. The conversation revealed that the standard answers to this big question are surprisingly difficult.
Thanks to the thorough archival diggings of ISCAST past-president Emeritus Professor John Pilbrow, ISCAST has its own "History of ISCAST". It is now published here as a PDF. We are grateful for John's painstaking work going through many boxes of archives. The history takes us up to 2017 and will need to be updated in the light of growth and changes since then. Thank you John!
