Who am I?

I am a creationist and an educator, originally trained as a research scientist. I write books, give lectures, publish free hand-outs, and produce a calendar - all in an effort to provide information on the facts of evolution that are not readily available.

What I believe

I am a bible-believing Christian who confesses that Almighty God is the creator of the universe. I support the Genesis account of creation as recorded in the bible.

I have done my homework. I have spent over 10 years researching the theory of evolution. I have checked out what the scientists have actually discovered by reading the scientific journals and textbooks.

I have weighed up the evidence for both creation and evolution. I have concluded that evolution is still just a theory, and that it's scientific support from the physical evidence does not 'stack up' against the claims. I have decided to adhere to the Genesis account.

What do I do?

I research the scientific facts (data) behind the theory of evolution, from the scientific literature and journals. After finding what the scientists' report, I eliminate the evolutionary bias in their interpretation, and uncover what was really discovered.

I also check the texts for comments by evolutionists to discover what they really believe. I find many who are dissatisfied with evolution, and many who have rejected it - based on the evidence.

This information I use to:-

  • Update my book
  • Lecture to schools, creation support groups, churches & youth groups
  • Produce a free-to-copy set of notes for copying into newsletters
  • Produce free literature
  • Produce a yearly calendar

Why do I serve God in the creation/evolution controversy

Believing the theory of evolution as a fact has destroyed the spiritual lives of countless Christians. This must be addressed.

The promulgation of evolution as an indisputable fact in schools, universities, and through the media, has prevented many people from accepting the salvation of Jesus Christ. This veil must be torn down.

The following is a true story that embodies why I serve God in the fight against the theory of evolution. It is very close to the experience of one of the members of my family who attended theological college.

At Paul Kanamori's school in Japan, one of the boys found a Bible. He read it without the help of a missionary or a commentary and was fascinated by what he read. As a result of his reading of the bible he was converted to Jesus Christ. He let other boys in his school read the bible because he couldn't keep the good news to himself.

Many others were converted, including Kanamori, and their number grew to 100 thirteen to eighteen year olds. All this was achieved without the assistance of any adult bible teachers.

Because of their joy, they took the good news of their salvation with them into the market place, but they were severely persecuted.

Kanamori eventually took over the leadership of the group, but he was put in prison. He took with him his gospels of Matthew and John which he hid in the inner lining of his waistcoat. They were not found when he was searched.

On his release from prison, he went to theological college to become a pastor. There he was taught to interpret the bible using the theories of Higher Criticism. He was taught that the Bible was only a collection of Babylonian myths and legends; that there was no creator; that humans evolved; that God did not revealed his truth to the Old Testament prophets; that religion merely evolved; and that the resurrection did not happen.

Despite the great strength that he developed during his period of persecution, the subtle deception taught at college caused him to lose his faith. For 24 years he continued in the darkness of unbelief until tragedy struck. His wife whom he greatly loved died, leaving him with his nine children to look after. He was shattered.

Then he remembered the Scriptures that he had learnt in his youth. He remembered, 'I am the resurrection and the life, says the Lord. He who believes on me, though he were dead, yet shall he live.'

He re-dedicated his life and returned to his Saviour, Jesus. His old joy returned, and his eyes were opened to the clever deceptions that had led him astray.

The same Higher Criticism is taught today in most theological colleges. It is compulsory for most who train to become preachers.

What is my opinion of the theory of evolution

An extract from the Forward to my book will explain my position.

"The theory of evolution is believed to be an incontrovertible fact by the general public and most of the scientific community, and is taught as such by most educators. This should not be the case.

The theory of evolution is a valid scientific hypothesis, but the facts are that it has not been proved beyond a shadow of a doubt. To be proven valid, the theory of evolution must undergo the scrutiny (rigours) of the scientific method. This, however, cannot be accomplished because the millions of years required for experimental testing are beyond the reasonable limit of human observation.

The current 'evidence' for the theory of evolution would not stand up in a court of law while undergoing judicial scrutiny. There would be indications that biased interpretation of data had occurred, as alternative theories could be presented to account for observed and tested facts.

The theory of evolution needs its facade of scientific immutability lifted, and exposed for what it really is - an unproven scientific theory."

What One Famous Scientist Said About Evolution

"One morning I woke up and something had happened in the night, and it struck me that I had been working on this [evolution] stuff for twenty years and there was not one thing I knew about it. That's quite a shock to learn that one can be so misled so long. Either there was something wrong with me or there was something wrong with evolutionary theory. Naturally, I know there is nothing wrong with me ....."

"[The] question is: Can you tell me anything you KNOW about Evolution? Any one thing? Any one thing that is true? I tried that question on the geology staff at the Field Museum of Natural History and the only answer I got was silence. I tried it on the members of the Evolutionary Morphology Seminar in the University of Chicago, a very prestigious body of Evolutionists, and all I got there was silence for a long time, and eventually one person said, "I do know one thing - it ought not to be taught in high school"."

Why I Wrote My Book

An extract from the Preface to my book will explain.

"I have been teaching science for 20 years, but I have had a number of problems with the theory of evolution.

      1. I knew that there were no absolute proofs for evolution.

      2. Almost all of my colleagues taught evolution as a fact.

      3. All the textbooks presented evolution and geological ages as a fact.

      4. The media presented evolution as a fact, announcing new 'proofs' with great fanfare, but not reciprocating when 'proofs' were falsified.

      5. I knew that many of the 'proofs' of evolution were no longer regarded as proof by the world's leading scientists.

      6. I knew that a lot of research was disproving evolution, but the results were either not reaching the teaching profession, or the teachers were biased and refused to present them to their students.

With this background, I decided to write this book. It was written as a resource for science teachers and students, as a collation of information that contradicts what is being taught in schools.

I have structured each section by addressing its basic premises and then replying from logic, research, and the world's leading scientists.

Each section is introduced with the statement, "Evolution says". I did this because this is the way it is imposed on school children, i.e. as an irrefutable dictum. I reply with "The facts are", presenting factual material that should be included in lessons in schools.

The material I present in this book represented the available information at the time of publishing. There will be myriads of responses, regarding their validity, etc., however, these will be personal opinions which do not restrict them from being considered by others."
