Scientists Believe In the Creation Account

Many, many scientists believe in God and the literal interpretation of the creation story in Genesis, chapter one. Dr. Arthur H. Compton, Noble Prize Winner in Physics, stated his faith quite forcefully: "For myself, faith begins with the realization that a supreme intelligence created man. lt is not difficult for me to have this faith, for it is incontrovertible that where there is a plan there is intelligence. An orderly, unfolding universe testifies to the truth of the most majestic statement ever uttered–"In the beginning God!" (Gen. 1:1). Others believe as strongly. The Directory of The American Scientific Affiliation lists hundreds of names of doctors, professors, scientists, etc. who do not believe the theories of evolution. The suggestion that the Genesis creation story is only believed by the ignorant, the dogmatic, and the prejudiced is grossly in error.

Further, did you know that seams of coal do not disprove the Genesis account of creation as some claim? Evolutionists would have us believe these seams were formed by the "peat bog" theory, etc., but there is conclusive evidence to the contrary, evidence that corresponds perfectly with the Genesis flood. Upright tree trunks, ten feet in height have been found in the coal beds (some top downward showing they did not grow there). Boulders of certain types of rock, which could not have come from the immediate area, have been found embedded. More than this, a human skull, an iron pot, an 8 carat gold chain ten inches long, all found embedded in seams of coal, are just a few of the items related to civilization witnessing against the theory that coal was formed millions of years ago, long before mankind came upon the scene.

Is it far-fetched that God created Adam a full grown male, but with other men to come to maturity through the normal process of development? Why then is it so incredible that God would have created coal and oil deposits in the beginning, with perhaps other coal and oil deposits formed under the catastrophic conditions of the flood or under other circumstances? We may never have enough information to explain all we would like to know about the creation, but it is far easier for this believer to accept God’s Word in faith than to believe the conflicting theories of evolutionists who deny the very existence of God. –via The Messenger
