L. Merson Davies (1890-1960) , long an active participant in England’s Evolution Protest Movement, was a strong conservative Christian and Bible student. He held both a Ph.D. and D. Sc. in geology and was a working geologist and paleontologist for about 30 years, publishing many significant articles in British geological journals. He participated in a number of creation/evolution debates with such leading British evolutionists as J. B. S. Haldane and others. He also published at least one widely used book defending the scientific inerrancy of the Bible.
