ESTEEMED CREATIONISTS DEFEND A YOUNG EARTH
“Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.” Genesis 2:1-2
On our previous Creation Moments program, we told you about several esteemed scientists with advanced degrees who believe in biblical creation. Today I’m going to tell you what some of these scientists – and others – have said about a recent creation.
First up is Dr. Russell Humphreys, who holds a Ph.D. in physics. He said that the facts of science “support a recent creation and go strongly against the idea of billions of years which the theistic evolutionists uphold.”
Dr. Danny Faulkner, with a Ph.D. in astronomy, said he believes “the universe is 6,000 to 8,000 years old” and that “we have a very clear indication from scripture that creation took place in six ordinary days.”
Dr. John Baumgardner, with a Ph.D. in geophysics, said this: “To make sense of the world as the Bible lays it out does not allow for millions of years but does require that there be a catastrophe which destroyed all air-breathing land life except for that preserved on Noah’s ark.”
Finally, with a Ph.D. in chemistry, Dr. Jonathan Sarfati said, “Ninety percent of the methods that have been used to estimate the age of the earth point to an age far less than the billions of years asserted by evolutionists.”
As you can see, each scientist comes from a different scientific discipline, and they all accept the Bible’s account of creation without hesitation. And there are thousands of other scientists in the U.S. and around the world who agree with them!
