The mission of the Creation Science Hall of Fame is to worship God, to grow in Christ while leading others to Christ and to build a family of Creationists on the foundation of the Bible by honoring those who honored God’s Word as literally written in Genesis.

Our motto

“Proving the existence of God.”

BREAKING NEWS!

The winner of the Gish-Morris-Whitcomb Trophy for the year 2013 is Ray Comfort from Living Waters Ministry for directing his film, Evolution vs. God. (View video below.)

Charity Status:

The Creation Science Hall of Fame is a 501(c)(3) public charity. The IRS notified us, in a letter that President Nick Lally received on May 16, 2013.

Brief Policy Statement

In “honoring those who honor God’s Word,” the Creation Science Hall of Fame does not honor men instead of God in the sense of the world’s vain idea of fame. Rather, in the spirit of Hebrews 11, and Romans 13:7, we seek to preserve the testimony and give honor where honor is due for all that the Christian community owes our inductees.

Disclaimer

The Board of Directors of the Creation Science Hall of Fame are the sole judges of the merits of any inductee, living or dead, or candidate for induction. Furthermore, the Creation Science Hall of Fame is an independent, self-standing ministry. No other ministry or organization owns, controls, or otherwise influences the Creation Science Hall of Fame or any part of it. Nor does the Creation Science Hall of Fame recognize any voice save the judgment of its own Board of Directors, whether in evaluating candidates for induction or in any other matter that shall come before it. The Board alone decides whom to induct, and bases said decision on the merits of the candidate, according to the Board’s own criteria.

Creation Science Hall of Fame Policy and Procedures

The Creation Science Hall of Fame (CSHF) is now open.

On November 11, 2009, we secured the following domain names: creationsciencehalloffame.org, -.com, -.net, and -.us.

Location proposal

Artist's concept of the Creation Science Hall of Fame building.

Artist’s concept of the Creation Science Hall of Fame building.

We will build the Hall of Fame as a brick-and-mortar structure in northern Kentucky, between Answers in Genesis’ Creation Museum and the new Ark Encounter park.

All creationists, collectively, throughout the world, will own the CSHF. We do not wish to own it, nor should anyone else. We now have a five-member Board of Directors and we operate as a non-profit corporation within the meaning of Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

We also expect all creationists to support this project collectively and with neither bias nor regard to politics or past disagreements.

God is no Respecter of persons. (Acts 10:34)

True enough, many creationists do not agree with one another’s theories. But this will not determine who enters the Hall of Fame. We want our Lord to be proud of us and this project.

The Creation Science Hall of Fame exists to honor those men and women who honored God’s Word as literally written in Genesis, be they alive and remaining, or gone home to the Lord.

Induction

We will never ask anyone whether they wish us to induct them. The Board of Directors votes on each candidate and appoints candidates for induction according to our own criteria.

The chief criterion is this: the Creation Science Hall of Fame seeks men and women who have honored God’s Word as literally written in Genesis and have worked toward that end during their lifetimes. (1 Thes.5:12-14)

The Hall of Fame building will eventually house the biographies, pictures, accomplishments, effects, and artifacts of all its inductees. Until that time, we shall illustrate those items on this site. (Check back periodically for updates.)

Current goals

  • To choose inductees
  • To choose and request nominations for Honorable Mention
  • To preserve documents and artifacts
  • To teach the public that creation science is valid science, and how many scientists uphold it (whether the secular media admits this or not)
  • To promote Christian values and above all, Jesus Christ

Sponsorship

This Web site will have a store to sell pertinent resources. Proceeds from sales will go toward the construction and maintenance of this web site and, eventually, the building.

  1. Conspicuous by his absence is Dr. Henry Morris, co-author of The Genesis Flood with Dr. John Whitcomb.

    • As you have already seen, he’s listed under Deceased Inductees. The Deceased Inductees page lists our deceased inductees in the chronological order of their flourishing. But if you hold your mouse over the phrase “Deceased Inductees” on the top menu bar, you’ll see another list of our deceased inductees in alphabetical order. That allows you to find a particular scientist quickly and efficiently.

      We would never leave off our list the man who revived and re-popularized creation science.

      • Well, I thought the same thing as the previous visitor. You immediately see the portraits and you get the impression that “these are it.” Its not that apparent that you have to consult the drop down menu. You need to redesign the website to make it more apparent.

        Great effort though!

        • The portraits are of eight honorees that we selected to “advertise” the site. Now when you visit the Deceased Inductees page, you can see a complete listing of our deceased honorees, in the chronological order of their “flourishing” (the fl. or flourit designation on most biographical or genealogical records). The drop-down list shows them in alphabetical order.

  2. As the website is explicit about induction criteria, I must ask – in which language is Genesis to be taken literally? Scholars have been arguing for centuries about shifts in meaning produced by translations, and I haven’t read of any significant agreement. Some of these differences relate directly to the mission.

    • Classical Hebrew will do quite nicely. And any version that faithfully translates that text. Understand: the original Scriptures are inspired. Translations of them cannot be.

    • Not everyone understands Hebrew… The original King James version is okay since any errors in it are well known and accounted for. The newer versions…well, that’s a little ify. Too many changes in newer versions sort of changes things…and that’s dangerous because you won’t know what they are.

  3. For the longest time I thought I was alone in my theories.
    Just a voice crying out in the wilderness.
    I now realize that we as a society have fallen pray to a giant manipulation.
    For some twisted reason our Governments which mandate our Universities have come to the conclusion that scientist cannot do productive research if they accept the facts of an intelligent designer as the origin of the universe and life.
    It is our responsibility to point out the obvious fact that the USSR which started this atheist challenge in science has collapsed.
    Nations that have followed the atheist philosophy are doing the same.

  4. From Dr. Jerry Bergman. Submitted by Nick Lally, Chairman, Board of Directors, CSHF.
    Bob Woodberry’s background includes a Ph.D. from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and an undergraduate degree from Wheaton College. His publications include numerous articles in peer reviewed journals, including the American Sociological Review and chapters in books published by Oxford University Press. The publications that caused problems include one in the Encyclopedia of Missions and Missionaries. He brought a lot of money grants from both private foundations and the government to University of Texas. He grew up in Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Saudi Arabia, and worked in China and Japan, and has traveled to over 50 countries.
    He was an excellent teacher. He had outstanding student appraisals and high student ratings. He earned several teaching awards, and was very popular with students. “His passion for doing thorough complex statistical work to both verify and falsify his work is unimpeachable.’
    But there was one big problem.
    His research clearly revealed politically incorrect results—his primary sin was his research supported Christianity. In every culture, by every measure, when Protestant missionaries move into a native culture, every standard of living indicator started improving dramatically, even when all other known factors were taken into account.”
    His article “The Measure of American Religion” won the Outstanding Published Article Award from the Sociology of Religion Section of the American Sociological Association. In fact he took longer to publish in order to make his case airtight, countering every objection before it was raised, so he had fewer papers than some of his colleagues. Also, the best journals have rejected his papers for trivial reasons, forcing him to publish in journals outside his field, which count less towards tenure.”
    The main problem was Woodberry’s research showed that Protestant missionaries built schools and had mass literacy campaigns because they wanted people to read the Bible in their own tongue—a fact Woodberry documented by multiple regression analyses. He found that evangelism was by far the most consistent predictor for starting modern elementary education programs.”
    His American Political Science Review article documented a “positive association between years of exposure to Protestant missions and the growth of democracy—and these results are consistent across continents and world regions, even when controlling for geography, climate, disease prevalence, and many other factors.”
    He also documented that the British forced the sultan of Zanzibar to end the slave trade and those enslaved East Africans until evangelical pressure pushed Britain to deploy its fleet to stop
    slavery in non-Western societies. In one paper Woodberry quoted an 1888 missionary conference’s declaration that said the opium trade is “a standing reproach to Christianity. We are responsible in the sight of God for this culminating wickedness.” Woodward’s research also showed from the 1820s to the 1850s missionaries in India campaigned to protect the people from landowner abuses. They brought cases to court on behalf of low caste believers. In 1865, when Jamaica’s royal governor killed a black leader, the missionaries mobilized a campaign that led to the governor being recalled to England and put on trial for murder. This is not what the anti-Christian professors wanted to hear, so they fired him.”
    A fellow professor, Dr. Rob Wilson, wrote the purpose of tenure was to protect the academic freedom of good faculty to explore controversial topics. What are unpopular research topics
    changes over time, and tenure is designed to protect freedom regardless of the political climate. He added he would rather have a system that allowed for a few ‘bad apples’ in order to protect the
    majority that are doing good work.”
    After he was denied tenure Dr. Woodward had to look for another position. He found that academic freedom is an illusion unless you agree with certain tenets of the ‘in vogue’ academic culture,
    or unless you have tenure. Even then, life can be rough if you are too outspoken about the wrong things. The tenure system is supposed to protect people with politically correct views before they
    were politically correct, and now what was once politically correct is now intolerable, and it is rare for someone like Bob to obtain tenure at a major university these days.”
    After the University of Texas denied Woodberry tenure he applied to 108 other schools. No U.S. University gave him a single offer. One Christian college made a tentative offer, but not a formal
    offer. No other school invited him for an in-person interview. To obtain a position Woodberry had to move nearly 10,000 miles to The National University of Singapore, a Moslem University in a
    Moslem nation. They gave him a 50 percent increase in salary, free housing for up to nine years, the first semester off with pay, and $85,000 to fund his research.

    • I got lost in all of the schools. What was your point in all this…?

  5. I’ve found the easiest way to defeat evolution is to simply ask them how male and female came to be! I say I just want to know what came after this primordial soup, and in what order. All the evolution charts show is one fish morphing into a lizard, one lizard into a bird, one bird into a dinosaur…etc. They don’t know. Well then that’s not science. God created them male and female…no wonder He reiterated so many times…the answer is there in Genesis.

    • First, because He said so.

      And second, because we have seen the findings that many of our inductees and Honorably Mentioned workers have developed. And we find them more than sufficiently convincing.

      • The Church argues that the soul is immortal.
        Where then is our soul was 1000 years ago?
        Faith is built for power and money.
        For example, the Christian Crusades.
        You think God created the earth?
        And what do you think who created god?

        We are not alone in the universe.
        We have not even explored the center of the country, and even more that we explore the entire universe.
        Surely there is life in the universe.
        But we are not able to investigate.
        Because we have no technology.
        We still do not know with what technology they built the pyramids

        • Now that’s a very convenient proposition.

          “It’s out there, but we can’t see it, because we haven’t the tools to see it.”

          That’s what Jan Oort said about his Cloud of Comets. And not a scintilla of evidence exists for that even today, though we now can see stars wobbling from the orbits of the planets they carry.

          As for who created God: hasn’t it occurred to you that God is the First Cause?

  6. The professor of a university challenged his students with this question. “Did God create everything that exists?” A student answered bravely, “Yes, he did”.

    The professor then asked, “If God created everything, then he created evil. Since evil exists (as noticed by our own actions), so God is evil. The student couldn’t respond to that statement causing the professor to conclude that he had “proved” that “belief in God” was a fairy tale, and therefore worthless.

    Another student raised his hand and asked the professor, “May I pose a question? ” “Of course” answered the professor.

    The young student stood up and asked : “Professor does Cold exists?”

    The professor answered, “What kind of question is that? …Of course the cold exists… haven’t you ever been cold?”

    The young student answered, “In fact sir, Cold does not exist. According to the laws of Physics, what we consider cold, in fact is the absence of heat. Anything is able to be studied as long as it transmits energy (heat). Absolute Zero is the total absence of heat, but cold does not exist. What we have done is create a term to describe how we feel if we don’t have body heat or we are not hot.”

    “And, does Dark exist?”, he continued. The professor answered “Of course”. This time the student responded, “Again you’re wrong, Sir. Darkness does not exist either. Darkness is in fact simply the absence of light. Light can be studied, darkness can not. Darkness cannot be broken down. A simple ray of light tears the darkness and illuminates the surface where the light beam finishes. Dark is a term that we humans have created to describe what happens when there’s lack of light.”

    Finally, the student asked the professor, “Sir, does evil exist?” The professor replied, “Of course it exists, as I mentioned at the beginning, we see violations, crimes and violence anywhere in the world, and those things are evil.”

    The student responded, “Sir, Evil does not exist. Just as in the previous cases, Evil is a term which man has created to describe the result of the absence of God’s presence in the hearts of man.”

    After this, the professor bowed down his head, and didn’t answer back.

    The young man’s name was ALBERT EINSTEIN.

    • Albert Einstein was more intellectually honest than you have been. He would at least conclude, however reluctantly, that the universe had a beginning. And neither he nor any other honest scientist would have the hubris to insist that his should be the last word on anything.

      • You want to talk about arrogance? I give you the Methodological Naturalism of Darwin and his successors. According to Methodological Naturalism, by definition, no apparent, perceived or claimed evidence in any field whatsoever can be valid if it posits any, repeat any, supernatural agency. Of primary importance to the neo-Darwinists is that God must be regarded as impossible, and therefore any explanation, however violative of the Law of Averages, has an equal claim on the attention of seekers of Naturalistic Truth.

        • Richard Lewontin, of Harvard University, admitted, even avowed, that scientists, even if they do not swear that oath to a designated Master Bridge Builder of Science, might as well do just that.

          ‘We take the side of science in spite of the patent absurdity of some of its constructs, in spite of its failure to fulfill many of its extravagant promises of health and life, in spite of the tolerance of the scientific community for unsubstantiated just-so stories, because we have a prior commitment, a commitment to materialism.

          It is not that the methods and institutions of science somehow compel us to accept a material explanation of the phenomenal world, but, on the contrary, that we are forced by our a priori adherence to material causes to create an apparatus of investigation and a set of concepts that produce material explanations, no matter how counter-intuitive, no matter how mystifying to the uninitiated. Moreover, that materialism is an absolute, for we cannot allow a Divine Foot in the door.

          The eminent Kant scholar Lewis Beck used to say that anyone who could believe in God could believe in anything. To appeal to an omnipotent deity is to allow that at any moment the regularities of nature may be ruptured, that Miracles may happen.

          The physical evidence does indeed point to a young earth. And as Richard Lewontin admitted above, the “evolutionistic community” ruthlessly sought to deny that to the general public.

          Austin’s paper on the excess argon in the dacite at Mount St. Helens is proof positive that radiometric dating is a sham, and always has been.

          I find the distinction between methodological naturalism and philosophical naturalism spurious, specious, and meaningless in practice. Or, as a lawyer would say, incompetent, irrelevant, and immaterial.

  7. Could it be possible that God created us through evolution? The Bible may be considered God’s word, but it is written by man, and man is flawed. Though some parts of the Bible are true, others can be seen as stories, opinions, or tales in an attempt to explain God. Neither Jesus nor God himself wrote the bible. I personally think that God did create us through evolution, not just in 7 days. If he created us in 7 days, it would be that there are too many unexplained things around that to be plausible. I fail to see how evolution could not be even partly true if God did create us. There’s just too much evidence, and if it is true, why is evolution happening even now?

    • Do not confuse changes within a created kind with the change from one created kind to another. The latter has never been seen in nature.

      For that matter, neither has the spontaneous generation of life.

      Neither let the tales of the “geological column,” or of radiometric dating, confuse you. The evidence actually militates against evolution as you understand it, and against an old earth.

      If you doubt that, look through some of our biographies, and at some of the articles you see linked here. The Ark and Flood articles are a good place to start.

      • So do you believe evolution exists, but it does not pertain to how humans were created, or do you flat out disbelieve in the theory of evolution?

        • I do not accept the “theory of evolution” as currently presented.

          I believe life does not have one single tree, but an orchard. The trunk of each tree in that orchard is a particular “kind” of life form. That “kind” might conform to the conventional “family” or “genus.”

          More to the point, I reject the Grand Evolutionary Paradigm. Which consists of:

          1. Uniformitarianism: “the present is the key to the past,” and all processes observed today have always run at the same rate since the beginning of time.
          2. Abiogenesis: life began ex nihilo from a “primordial soup.”
          3. Common descent: all life descends from one ancestor.

          And my chief reason to reject that, is that I reject an old earth. I suggest this earth, and this solar system, can be no older than about 7500 years old, by Earth clocks. That last is important. The universe might be far older, by any clock running at the edge of the universe. But here in the Galaxy, which is at the center, time was stretched when the universe expanded.

          If you look for my article about an astronomical fix on the Global Flood, you’ll see further evidence, not only that the earth was young, but that a key event in earth’s history happened exactly as described, and consistent with patriarchal annals, king lists, and the like, from the Old Testament, and the conventional fixation of the year of the destruction of the Temple of Jerusalem by Nebuchadnezzar II (the Great), 586 BC. (Note carefully: BC, not BCE.)

    • If you support God created us through evolution, it implies humans did not come into existence immediately after God’s speech. Your support contradicts Psalms 33:9 since it mentions humans stood fast after His spoken words in Genesis 1:16.

      Genesis 1:26, “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.”

      Psalms 33:9, “For he spake, and it was done; he commanded, and it stood fast.”

  8. If this entire universe would be created by time and space to be guided by Intelligent Design, it would turn up that God was not the creator. The reason is simply time and space had turned up to be the main sources to act as creators of this universe and yet God had turned up to act as an assistant for the progress. This is not biblical since Isaiah 45:8 mentions God was the creator instead of merely the assistant for the creation.

    Similarly, there is no reason to assume all living creatures would be formed through natural selection to be guided by intelligent design. The reason is simply natural selection had turned up to be the creator instead of God. God had eventually turned up to stand beside to assist the creator, i.e. natural selection, in the evolution.

    Isaiah 45:8, “For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD; and there is none else.”

  9. That Story about Einstein was amazing, I have heard this story since I was small! However I was unaware it was Einstein, before using it in my creation works, where and how was the story originated, and or the source of the story?

    I was recently approached by an agnostic, who said: Agnostic simply is a fancy term for “I don’t Care!”

    Then he proceeded for 45 minutes asking me clarifying questions about God and Creation! By the time he had finished he walked away scratching his head asking himself if he really cared after all! CARE TO KNOW THE TRUTH OF YOUR WORLD!

    If I could say anything to the critics of God’s Divine Creative Origination to our Universe, might I challenge you to care enough to research the evidence for God as I have done! It was amazing! Before long, you will find God’s existence everywhere! And come to the knowledge that God himself can place his Holy Spirit into your heart! All you must do is Believe and Repent of your sin! The sin? Disbelief that Jesus Christ can wash away everything you have ever mistakenly done: Disbelief of his amazing power and Godhead!

    The journey will be started of lifelong peace joy and purpose! And this experience cannot be refuted by those who have walked into its path!
