About Answers in Genesis:

Welcome to Answers in Genesis’ website. Are you new to the site? You may want to take some time to get familiar with us and the site by watching a video (above) or reading a brief introduction (on the left).

Answers in Genesis is a Christian ministry that seeks to share the truths of God’s Word from the very first verse. You’ll find thousands of articles, audio and video programs that explore God’s truth as it relates to many areas of science, current trends and beliefs that exist in today’s world.
Around the globe today, the creation/evolution debate is front page news. Answers in Genesis strives to “stand in the gap,” presenting the truth through this website, our Creation Museum and events hosted around the world.
Thanks for stopping by!

Tas Walker's Biblical Geology

Geology is not just about mines, minerals and museums. Your attitude to geology affects:
  • Your family
  • Your quality of life
  • Your self image
  • Your future
Why should anyone be interested in biblical geology?

Because geological ideas to not operate in a vacuum. They provide the foundation for our worldview, and our worldview affects us at the deepest level.

You may have never studied geology, and not have much interest in the subject. However, if you believe that this world is millions of years old you have unconsciously picked up significant geological ideas from our culture, and these ideas affect lots of things.

Frank Press and Raymond Siever in their geology textbook, Earth, (1986), explained the worldview of modern geology thus: ‘As modern geology started gathering momentum through the work of James Hutton and others … there was an obvious return to the old Greek way of looking at things.’

Note, 'old Greek way of looking at things.'

F. Sherwood Taylor, Curator, Museum of the History of Science, Oxford said the same thing on BBC radio in 1949, ‘In England it was geology and the theory of evolution that changed us from a Christian to a pagan nation.’

Note, 'to a pagan nation.'

And that has consequences for you and your family.

Long-age geology basically says that the Bible cannot be accepted as reliable history. So if you can't believe the Bible's history, why should you accept the Bible's morality and salvation? Hence we have seen the collapse of Christian values in the West, in places like the UK and Europe.

With the collapse of Christian values we see rising crime, domestic violence, abortion, drug abuse, alchoholism, homosexual behaviour, sexual slavery, family break down, and disturbed children.

Jeffrey Dahmer Dahmer

Serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer's life, as well as his victims and their familes, were tragically impacted by his worldview. When interviewed in prison about the people he murdered he said 'If a person doesn’t think there is a God to be accountable to, then—then what’s—what’s the point of—of trying to modify your behaviour to keep it within acceptable ranges? That’s how I thought, anyway. I always believed the theory of evolution as truth that we all just came from the slime. When we died, you know, that was it, there is nothing …' (Dateline NBC interview with Stone Phillips, Aired November 29, 1994.)

Niall Ferguson, professor of history at Harvard University, made this sobering observation on ABC Radio, Australia, in April 2006.

'I myself, although I was not brought up in a religious household, and I suppose if I were pressed, would have to admit to being a kind of incurable atheist, I’m nevertheless strongly convinced that religion performs important social functions in the transmission say, of ethical values between generations, and that a society that does away with it, that ceases to engage in any kind of formal religious instruction, is a society that’s likely to be less good at maintaining social order than one which maintains a measure of religious faith and observance. And that is based purely on historical observation.
'The experiments with atheism as the basis for political order, say in the Soviet Union after the Bolshevik Revolution, did not produce happy results. So I think one really does away with Christianity, or indeed one does away with God at one’s peril. Human beings do seem to behave better when they have some sense of moral authority in the world, and indeed some kind of formal system for inculcating good ethical behaviour.'

But no one, not even Niall Ferguson, can hold onto a worldview that they believe is untrue, no matter how beneficial they think it is.

That is part of my motivation for this site. The fact is, and I hope you will come to appreciate it, that the Bible is true. Geology is an incredibly important issue that needs to be founded on biblical principles to provide the historical framework for the biblical worldview.

Creation Research:

Creation Research is not underwritten by any one church or denomination. Creation Research is a faith ministry funded by the gifts of God's people to proclaim Christ as Creator, Sustainer, Saviour, Lord and Judge.
An old missionary from China told us many years ago that if Christ called us to proclaim and defend the Scriptures and the truth of Creation, we would be provided for as we trusted Christ and did the job faithfully. That was more that 20 years ago. The missionary was right. We commenced as a faith work and are constantly amazed as God raises up people to provide the funds we need at the right time. We may be at the battle front, but we win because of your prayer and financial support.

The Saviour who sent us into all the world to preach His gospel, is the Creator of all. His Gospel begins in Genesis and finishes in Revelation. What a joy it has been to see the results of preaching the whole counsel of the Word of God, to a society brainwashed with evolution.
We have received thousands of letters from the last 5 years of people's accounts of their conversion to Christ as Creator, Saviour, Lord and God. We have been encouraged and we know you will be also. It makes all the hardships of frontline ministry worthwhile. Pray for these people that they may grow in the Lord and also faithfully proclaim the Word of the living God.

Creation on the Web:

Creation on the Web

Easy to navigate on the new site. This new creation resource site is by the people who continue to bring Creation magazine to the world (the leading creationist magazine for >25 years, read in over 140 countries). And Dr Jonathan Sarfati’s much-loved ‘feedback rebuttals’ have returned exclusively to this site.
Enjoy fresh, regular front-page items (including fresh postings from our latest periodicals), breaking news on items of real creation interest, plus feedback/rebuttals from such well-known speaker/scientists as Drs Jonathan Sarfati, Don Batten, Carl Wieland, Tas Walker, David Catchpoole, Emil Silvestru and more.

While you’re accessing the thousands of items on this site, please let us know when you come across an imperfection (please check first that your browser is updated).

____________________________________ A Scientific Dissent From Darwinism .... During recent decades, new scientific evidence from many scientific disciplines such as cosmology, physics, biology, "artificial intelligence" research, and others have caused scientists to begin questioning Darwinism's central tenet of natural selection and studying the evidence supporting it in greater detail.

Yet public TV programs, educational policy statements, and science textbooks have asserted that Darwin's theory of evolution fully explains the complexity of living things. The public has been assured that all known evidence supports Darwinism and that virtually every scientist in the world believes the theory to be true.

The scientists on this list dispute the first claim and stand as living testimony in contradiction to the second. Since Discovery Institute launched this list in 2001 over 700 scientists have courageously stepped forward to sign their names. The list is growing and includes scientists from the US National Academy of Sciences, Russian, Hungarian and Czech National Academies, as well as from universities such as Yale, Princeton, Stanford, MIT, UC Berkeley, UCLA, and others.
