Jonathan Sarfati

Dr. Jonathan Sarfati  (CMI) 

 

Dr. Jonathan Sarfati has been a Christian since 1984. He has long been interested in apologetics, the defense of the faith, and was a co-founder of the Wellington Christian Apologetics Society (New Zealand).1 Creation vs evolution is of course a vital area, because of the ramifications for the doctrines of Creation, the Fall which brought death into the world, and their links to the doctrines of the Incarnation, Atonement and Bodily Resurrection of the God-man Jesus Christ. Dr. Sarfati published his first book, Refuting Evolution, in 1999, and in  2004, he wrote Refuting Compromise, defending a straightforward biblical creation timeline and a global flood. Dr. Sarfati co-authored 15 Reasons to Take Genesis as History with Don Batten in 2006, and in 2008, he finished By Design: Evidence for nature's Intelligent Designer--the God of the Bible.

 


 

Rob Carter

Dr. Rob Carter (CMI)  

 

Dr Carter was converted to Christ at an early age, but did not know what to do with the theory of evolution. He always knew what he wanted to believe, but had no way to express what he was thinking and no evidence to support his views. In his freshman year of college, he was exposed to creationism for the first time and soon after adopted it as his modus operandi. He obtained a BS in Applied Biology from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 1992. He then spent four years teaching high school biology, chemistry, physics and electronics before going to the University of Miami to obtain his PhD in Marine Biology. While in Miami, he studied the genetics of pigmentation in corals and other invertebrates, designed and built an aquaculture bio facility for Caribbean corals, performed well over 500 SCUBA dives, many of them at night, and licensed a spin-off product of his research (a patent-pending fluorescent protein) to a biotech company. He is currently Head Speaker/Scientist for CMI-USA in Atlanta, Georgia, where he is currently researching human genetics and other issues related to biblical creation.

 


 

Andrew Snelling

Dr. Andrew Snelling (AIG)  

 

Dr. Andrew Snelling, one of the world's most respected creation scientists specializing in geological studies, joined Answers in Genesis in 2007 as the organization's new director of research, and also as a speaker for layperson and technical audiences. Dr. Snelling spent considerable time serving as a consultant in developing the AiG Creation Museum's large flood-geology room, and has become AiG's first full-time Ph.D. in the field of geology. Dr. Snelling has extensive experience working in the mining industry in Australia. One of his main areas of research has been the study of methods used in dating rocks, a key area of research for groups like AiG, which are convinced of a young age for the earth. Dr. Snelling's research has demonstrated that a global flood more than 4,300 years ago explains most rock layers and fossil deposits found around the world. Building from this foundation, Dr. Snelling has made predictions as to what should be found if a catastrophic global flood actually happened.

 


 

David Menton

Dr. David Menton (AIG)  

 

Dr. Menton was awarded "Professor of the Year" in 1998 while associate professor of anatomy at the respected Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis--now a professor emeritus.

Since AiG's high-tech and popular Creation Museum opened in 2007, he has been interviewed by several media outlets, including ABC-TV's World News Tonight with Charles Gibson, January 2008 and has lectured frequently at the museum.

Otis Kline

Otis Kline

 

Otis Kline started his career as a banker becoming vice president & trust officer before resigning to pursue many years of entrepreneurial endeavors. From helping to pioneer the Hansen Fossil Research Station in eastern Wyoming in 1995, to becoming president of the Foundation Advancing Creation Truth in 2000, he has pursued a full time calling in creation ministry. Under his leadership the FACT foundation moved to Glendive, Montana where land was acquired for fossil excavations. In 2009 the foundation completed construction of the Glendive Dinosaur & Fossil Museum, which is the second largest dinosaur and fossil museum in Montana as well as one of the largest in the United States to display fossils in the context of biblical creation. With fossil excavation experience since 1991, he has been the lead excavator on a fully articulated Thescelosaurus garbani and he and his team recently completed excavating a large Ceratopsian dinosaur having skeletal features new to paleontology. Further information about FACT and the Glendive Dinosaur and Fossil Museum can be found online at www.CreationTruth.org 

 


 

Chuck Missler

Chuck Missler (Koinonia House Ministries) 

 

As Chuck notes, his day of reckoning came several years ago when -- as the result of a merger -- he found himself the chairman and a major shareholder of a small, publicly owned development company known as Phoenix Group International. The firm established an $8 billion joint venture with the Soviet Union to supply personal computers to their 143,000 schools. Due to several unforeseen circumstances, the venture failed. Chuck and his wife Nancy lost everything, including their home, automobiles and insurance. It was during this difficult time that Chuck turned to God and the Bible. As a child, he developed an intense interest in the Bible; studying it became a favorite pastime. In the 1970s, while still in the corporate world, Chuck began leading weekly Bible studies at the 30,000-member Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa, in California. He and Nancy established Koinonia House in 1973. Nancy and Chuck now travel and teach through their ministry, Koinonia House, and they remain dedicated to create, develop and distribute materials which stimulate, encourage and facilitate serious study of the Bible as the inerrant Word of God.
