Founded in 1973, Probe works “to present the Gospel to communities, nationally and internationally, by providing life-long opportunities to integrate faith and learning through balanced, biblically based scholarship.” Bohlin has a doctorate in molecular and cell biology from the University of Texas at Dallas, making him a star performer for anti-evolution groups. He is listed as a “Darwin Skeptic” on the Creation Science Hall of Fame website. Probe and the Creation Science Hall of Fame promote a fundamentalist, literal interpretation of the Bible’s creation story. We know that Bohlin is in Austin, Texas this week to participate in the biology review panel meetings.
  12. Boudreaux, Ed Dr., has made significant contributions to creation science. He and his colleague are the only ones to publish a creation based theory for origin of chemical elements and a solid case for accelerated radioactive decay. Nominated by Nick Lally
  13. Bradley, Walter is a retired Baylor University professor of engineering who coauthored a book, The Mystery of Life’s Origins in 1984, that essentially launched the “intelligent design” movement. “Intelligent design” suggests a scientific basis for creationism (creationism dressed up in a lab coat). Bradley, founding fellow of the Discovery Institute’s Center for the Renewal of Science and Culture, is also listed as a “Darwin Skeptic” on the Creation Science Hall of Fame website. He is participating in the biology review panel meetings this week.

  17. Cantor, Tom President, founder and CEO Scantibodies Laboratory.Wrote, “How a Jew Became a Scientific Creationist”. Developed Creation and Earth History Museum. Santee, California. Free admission! tom.cantor@scantibodies.com 1-800-279-9181 Nominated by Nick Lally
  18. Carson, Ben, Dr. An unusual controversy has erupted at Emory University over the choice of famed neurosurgeon Ben Carson to deliver this year’s commencement address because he does not believe in evolution. Nearly 500 professors, student and alumni signed a letter (see full text below) expressing concern that Carson, as a 7th Day Adventist, believes in creationist theory that holds that all life on Earth was created by God about 6,000 years ago. It rejects Darwin’s theory of evolution, which is the central principle that animates modern biology, uniting all biological fields under one theoretical tent, and which virtually all modern scientists agree is true. (Evolutioary bias views) The letter’s authors are not seeking to have Carson disinvited. Instead, they say it was written to raise concerns about his anti-scientific views.
    Carson has given dozens of commencement speeches and received some 50 honorary degreesm but this is apparently the first time that his views on evolution have become an issue at a graduation.
    Carson is world renowned for his work with children, becoming in 1987 the first surgeon to successfully separate siamese twins conjoined at the back of the head. In 2000 he was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian award in the United States. He is also known for his own life story — he was raised by a single mother in Detroit and struggled for a time in school but wound up at Yale University — and for his
    philanthropy: The Carson Scholars Fund recognizes exceptional young people. Carson works at Johns Hopkins University, where he is director of the Division of Pediatric Neurosurgery, co-director of the Craniofacial Center and a professor of neurosurgery, oncology, plastic surgery and pediatrics.
    Carson has spoken publicly about his views on evolution and creationism, once telling a convention of the National Science Teachers: “Evolution and creationism both require faith. It’s just a matter of where you choose to place that faith.” Nominated by Tina Hollenbeck
  19. Cassase, Mario is founder and director of the Exploration Science Center in Port Jervis, NY (2012). The mission of the organization is to “Proclaim the truths of a Creator and His glorious gospel.” His parents instilled in him a love for the truth and have trained him to learn, to lead and to share Jesus. This planted the seed for birthing “time travel themed” interactive creation museum called the Origins Museum. The Tour shares the truth of scripture regarding the creation, climaxing with the gospel. Visit www.tsFamilyChristianCenter.com for more information. Mario has taught several creation-based lectures for youth while in his teens, studied undergraduate level Biology and actively discoursed with students and faculty both in the secular and christian colleges he attended. Recently, he has also shared his tour in “mobile form” at Transformation Life Center. Nominated by Nick Lally
  20. Chiang, Gary R. Dr. Profesor of Biology, Redeemer University College, Ancaster, ON, Canada. Author of “The Rise of Theistic Evolution in Christian Higher Education”: A  Report from the Trenches. May, 2013. Nominated by Nick Lally
  21. Curtis, Bill (deceased), founder and director of ISBR (Institute for Scientific and Biblical Research) in Lancaster, PA. Bill is famous on several counts – he worked with Dr. Werner von Braun early in his career, and he also was the lead designer in the development of many aircraft, probably the most famous being the A-10 Thunderbolt (aka: Warthog), our nation’s famous “tank killer”. Dr Curtis was also a Hebrew scholar and a famous bicycle racer, having won numerous national championships. Bill was a personal friend of Dr. Henry Morris and has written several books. He was a staunch defender of the literal interpretation of the biblical view of origins. Nominated by Mike Snavely. honorary doctorate degrees. He’s also a member of the Alpha Honor Medical Society and the Horatio Alger Society of Distinguished Americans, and sits on a number of business- and education-related boards. To date, he’s written five books – Gifted Hands, The Big Picture, Take the Risk, Think Big, and America the Beautiful – and, in 1994, he and his wife founded the Carson Scholars Fund to promote reading and provide scholarships. In 2001, he was named by both CNN and Time Magazine as one of the nation’s “20 foremost physicians and scientists” and was selected by the Library of Congress as one of 89 “Living Legends.” In 2006, the NAACP awarded him the Spingarn Medal and, in 2008, he received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian honor in the United States. Despite all these accomplishments, he has been openly criticized within the scientific community for his steadfast adherence to Creation Science – most recently by faculty and staff at Emory University in 2012, who sought to discredit him prior to his delivering a commencement address at the school. But his commitment to the biblical truth of Creation Science does not waver. In fact, he unabashedly points out that “evolution and creationism both require faith. It’s just a matter of where you choose to place that faith.” Nominated by home education advocate and Christian apologist Tina Hollenbeck.
  22. Damadian, Raymond V. made history as the inventor of the MRI scanner. The first MR image of a human skull was made by him on July 3, 1977. His prototype is now on permanent display at the Smithsonian Institution‘s Hall of Medical Sciences. Does creation play a part in Damadian’s philosophy of science? No; it does not play a part, it plays the lead role. Dr. Damadian, a young-earth creationist, is convinced that the Bible is the reason for the advancement of science and the blessings of Western civilization, and that our country is in great peril if we do not return to Biblical principles, including the foundational doctrine of creation. The big competitors nearly robbed him of his invention. He learned first-hand about corporate greed, and had to spend millions defending his patent. In 1982, a jury trial vindicated him against international corporations that were manufacturing scanners overseas, but a judge single-handedly reversed their verdict (any corruption there?). After years of legal wrangling, Fonar Corp. was eventually awarded $100 million in damages, but the really big bucks are still going overseas to those never involved in the invention at all. From his experience, Damadian became an energetic advocate for the lonely inventors competing against corporate giants, lobbying Congress for protection of patents from infringement and warning against the consequences of weakening the patent laws. His reputation, however, seems secure. In 1988, Damadian was awarded the National Medal of Technology, the nation’s highest award for applied science. The following year he was enrolled in the Inventor’s Hall of Fame. He was never awarded the Nobel Prize. Nominated by CSHF.
  23. DeYoung, Don is a professor of physics at Grace College, Winona Lake, Ind. A member of faculty there since 1972, he is known internationally for his work in creation science. He is president of the Creation Research Society, author of 15 books on Bible-science topics, and well known as a creation science speaker. Dr. DeYoung earned his A.S. degree from Grand Rapids Junior College, B.S. and M.S. degrees from Michigan Technological University, M.Div. from Grace Theological Seminary, and Ph.D. degree from Iowa State University. Nominated by CSHF.
  24. Edgeworth, Dr. Arv God called Arv to preach and teach in his late thirties. He began preparing for that, and felt led by the Lord to receive his college training through correspondence, while continuing to work in his local church. Most of his college training was through Bethany Bible College in Dothan, AL. While doing his college training he was also working full-time at General Motors Corporation, retiring with 31½ years seniority in 1995. Back in January 1997 God called Arv into Creation Science Evangelism. He was taken on for support by his home church, Trinity Baptist Church in Flushing, MI. It was under his former pastor’s direction (Dr. Leonard Saunders) that he started Truth and Science Ministries. He has now given over 450 seminars in 27 different states. Over a 10 year period he was on the road between 30 and 40 weeks per year. He currently has three books published, has developed a number of training manuals, a college course, and has also developed 20 DVD’s. He does many types of seminars: from 1 day to 2 week meetings; Senior camps, Junior camps, VBS, Mission’s Conferences, Educator’s Conferences, Christian schools, College courses, public schools, area wide meetings, Dismantling Evolution Made Easy Workshops, plus radio and television interviews.

  25. Elder, Pam a.k.a. ’The Welder’s Wife’. Traditional Domestic Engineer. Married for 35 years and still counting. Shared the same roof with her widowed mother-in-law for approximately 17½ years. Raised 2 batches of kids. (1st batch was part time, consisting of a niece and nephew and the 2nd batch was full time, consisting of a son!) Her interest in Creation Science began at the age of 18 when she came across 2 tracks lying on a table in a Christian Book Store in Alice Springs, NT Australia. One was ‘Have You Been Brainwashed?’ by Dr. Duane Gish and the other one was ‘Big Daddy?’ by Jack Chick. After she read them, she mentally threw out everything she had been taught about science and started again based on God’s Word being the truth. After graduating from Life Bible College in Perth, Western Australia, she moved to California, USA and met her husband at a College Bible Study while attending Grace Community Church in Panorama City. (She also attended Logos.) When their son became old enough for school they decided to move to Idaho and there started him out in a Christian school. (They refused to put him in the public education system because of its adherence to the theory of evolution.) She became the kinder garten teacher for 4 years and afterwards became the school administrator for 5 years. While she was the school administrator, she began writing a novel about Noah and his family, and as a result, began researching Creation Science in earnest. Her constant prayer was to be as accurate as possible, but she really didn’t think there was much information available; however the LORD answered that prayer in some amazing ways! {He knew all about the battles those called into the Creation Science ministry would face, so He put what we would be needing into the first 11 chapters of Genesis right from the beginning. (Thank you LORD!)} It started out with a friend teaching her students the Hebrew alphabet, which led to some of them wanting to continue learning Hebrew, including her son. Later her family moved to Montana because of her husband’s work. For the rest of high school she home-schooled their son. Then, because of his language elective now being Hebrew, she started taking him to a Messianic Jewish ‘synagogue’ so that he could become more familiar with the culture associated with it, and that’s when she began to lean Hebrew as well. By the grace of God, her Hebrew Teacher was also into Creation Science and he encouraged her to translate Genesis chapters 1 through 11 from the Hebrew Text, the goal being to see what the Hebrew Text had to say about Creation Science. It took her 3½ years to do it. Because of her Creation Science background, while translating the names in Genesis 10 she began to see that the names in the 2nd generation born after the Flood were describing volcanic activity. Then when she placed the list of names side by side and read across the list according to birth order, she found that they were describing a sequence of volcanic events. Later, as she went back over the names of the 1st generation, she found that they too were describing a series of geological events. Eventually she found that the names for the 3rd through the 5th generations, likewise, were also describing geological events! Afterwards, because of her conviction that Hebrew was the original language, she decided to see if the earliest names listed in the Irish & British genealogies in ‘After The Flood’ by Bill Cooper, B.A.Hons. were Hebrew. She figured out how they would be written in Hebrew and then looked them up to see if they were actual Hebrew words. They are! She found that they coincide with what the names in Genesis 10 are describing, including volcanic activity, and migrations starting from Ararat. Some are describing a four sided city as it was developed and then a great tower rising up, and a rebellion. Afterwards, the British genealogy is no longer translatable, and one of the Irish lines disappears. The other 2 Irish lines continue in Hebrew for a while, including describing some kind of a terrifying tempest right after God confounded the language at Babel (Also two of Joktan’s sons have names that seems to refer to this event.) The research is ongoing and can be found at her website. Her ministry is called ‘Women’s Resources On Creation Science’ (W-ROCS! for short). You can find it at www.WomensResourcesOnCreationScience.org or www.w-rocs.org Nominated by Nick Lally
  26. Fabich, Dr. Andrew J. grew up in a suburb of Cleveland, OH before moving to Columbus, OH to finish high school and attend Ohio State. After finishing his undergraduate degree, he married his high school sweetheart and began graduate school.

  32. Groppi, Teno from Wyldewood Baptist Church in Oshkosh. WI, runs the Genesis Evidence Ministry (http://GenesisEvidence.org) defending the truth and scientific accuracy of the Bible. He has crossed the country to speak at churches and events. He teaches creation lessons twice a month to his church’s youth group. He possesses a vast array of fossils, footprints, and many other artifacts that support the biblical creation account. In the mid-90′s, he combined efforts with Dr. Joe Mastropaolo and Karl Priest in an attempt to get then University of WI-Oshkosh Dean of Science, Dr. Michael Zimmerman, to contend for Dr. Mastropaolo’s “Life Science Prize” debate. The atheist Zimmerman went to great lengths to dodge that encounter, but went on to start the infamous “Clergy Letter Project” effort to get evolution defended in churches. After Dr. Zimmerman ducked debates against Mastropaolo, Hovind, and John Pendleton, Groppi issued his own challenge to Dr. Zimmerman. That offer was also met with a hasty retreat by the scientist. Groppi then organized Kent Hovind’s debate (#10) against UW-0 biochemistry professor, Dr. James Paulson. Paulson was one of Zimmerman’s underlings at UW-0 and the suspicion was that he “took one for the team”. Groppi participated in a debate at the UW-Richland Center in 2010 against an evolutionist college biology professor and a theistic evolutionist Lutheran Pastor where the creation side won a resounding triumph. Nominated by Karl Priest.

  37. Humphreys, David Russell graduated B.S. from Duke University and was awarded his Ph.D in physics from Louisiana State University in 1972. He has worked for General Electric and Sandia National Laboratories in nuclear physics where he received a patent and a science award. From 2001-2008 he was an associate professor at The Institute for Creation Research. He currently works for Creation Ministries International (USA). Humphreys is a board member of both the Creation Research Society and the Creation Science Fellowship of New Mexico. Humphreys’ book, Starlight and Time, presents an alternative cosmological model to the Big Bang theory, that attempts to solve the Distant Starlilght Problem. Its thesis is that the Earth is about six thousand years old, and the outer edge of an expanding and rotating 3-dimensional universe is billions of years old (when measured from earth). It proposes using the principles of relativity to postulate that time ticked at different rates during the universe’s origin. In other words, according to his theory, clocks on earth registered the six days of creation while those at the edge of the universe counted the approximately 15 billion years needed for light from the most distant galaxies to reach earth.The model places the Milky Way galaxy relatively near the center of the cosmos. Nominated by CSHF.
  38. Irwin, Col. James Benson (March 17, 1930 – August 8, 1991) The eighth man to walk on the moon, took the entire Bible seriously because he took its Author seriously. He rejoiced in the Genesis account of origins. He believed that God created the world in six, twenty-four-hour days. That man was Col. James Irwin, the lunar vehicle commander for Apollo 15. Destination: Moon recounts his amazing physical and spiritual journey to the moon. With spectacular photos and “you are there” text, you will experience what it’s like to train for four years as an astronaut. You will feel the emotions of lift-off, see Earth from space, and explore the moon. As amazing as his accomplishment was, Astronaut Irwin viewed it as insignificant compared to the accomplishments of the Creator. Col. Irwin spent the rest of his life sharing this message: “Jesus walking on Earth is more important than man walking on the moon.” His legacy of faith and discovery is an inspiration even now, thirty years after he landed on the moon. Visually stunning. By Astronaut James Irwin. (Endorsed by Billy Graham, Bill Bright, Ken Ham, Doug Phillips, and many others).

He is Canada’s and maybe the world’s only French speaking creationist speaker and debater. He has never lost a debate because of his ability to use evolutionists own research against them! A focussed and articulate speaker he has a gift of penetrating to the heart of the matter and illuminating the anomalies and shoddy thinking behind evolutionary presuppositions. www.creationnisme.com Nominated by the Rev. George A. Desjardins BA MA OCT Secretary, CORE Ottawa
  79. Trotter, Ide is a longtime standard-bearer for the creationist movement in Texas, both as a source of funding and as a spokesperson for the absurdly named creationist group Texans for Better Science Education. Trotter, listed as a “Darwin Skeptic” on the Creation Science Hall of Fame website, is a veteran of the evolution wars at the SBOE and is participating the biology review panel meetings this week. He testified before the board during the 2003 biology textbook adoption and again in 2009 during the science curriculum adoption. In both instances, Trotter advocated including scientifically discredited “weaknesses” of evolution in Texas science classrooms. Trotter, who has a doctorate in chemical engineering, runs his own investment management company and served as dean of business and professor of finance at Dallas Baptist University. He claims that major scientific discoveries over last century have actually made evolutionary science harder to defend.
  80. Vail, Tom Lives in Phoenix, AZ and operates Canyon Ministries, which offers Christ-centered white water rafting trips through the Grand Canyon. Tom has been a rafting guide in the Canyon since 1980 and is the author of “The Grand Canyon, A Different View”; and Guidebooks to the Grand Canyon, Bryce and Zion Canyons, and Yellowstone. Tom and Paula’s message about the Grand Canyon is presented in the DVD, “Does the Grand Canyon support the Word of God”? More can be found out on their website. www.CanyonMinistries.com Nominated for “Honorable Mention” on the Creation Science Hall of Fame Website. Submitted to CSHF by the Board of Direectors of the Arizona Origin Science Association (AzOSA).
  81. Veith, Walter J. has traveled widely throughout North America and the world presenting his visually documented Amazing Discoveries seminar series to large, enthusiastic crowds. The information presented is based on his in-depth research in the areas of evolution and Creation, health and diet, and Bible prophecy. Professor Walter J. Veith obtained his doctorate in zoology from the University of Cape Town in 1979. He believes that the theory of evolution does not provide a plausible explanation of our origins, and that the geological and paleontological data do not support evolution over long periods of time. He believes that the evidence rather implies catastrophism, which is consistent with the Genesis account. He lectures on this topic in Europe, Africa, and North America. Professor Walter J. Veith, PhD Zoology, is deeply interested in the ecological deterioration of our planet and is convinced that this state of affairs has been predicted in Biblical prophecy. Professor Walter J. Veith is an ardent student of Biblical prophecy. He stands by the veracity of the Bible, which he believes is proved by the science of archaeology as well as the fulfillment of numerous prophecies found in the Bible. He believes that the Bible has a message to modern people. Nominated by Darrell Leamon
  82. Wallace, Timothy His web site: www.trueorigin.org Nominated by David Plaisted.
  83. Werner, Carl graduated from the University of Missouri with distinction in biology (summa cum laude). He received his doctoral degree in medicine at the age of 23 and practices family medicine in St Louis. He, along with his wife, Debbie, traveled to seven countries to visit 60 museums and fossil dig sites and interview fossil experts to author Evolution: The Grand Experiment Vol. 1 and Living Fossils; Evolution the Grand Experiment Vol. 2. In his books and DVDs, Dr. Werner documents from the fossil record that hundreds of modern mammals, birds, flowers, trees, etc., are found with dinosaurs. Nominated by Bob Enyart.
  84. White, Richard a systems (network) engineer in Austin, testified at an SBOE hearing on the proposed science curriculum standards on March 25, 2009. At the time, he advocated the inclusion of phony “weaknesses” of evolution in Texas science standards: “…These are all well-known scientific problems with modern evolutionary theory, and they do not exhaust the list. The entire list is a very long one.” White went on in his testimony to insist that teaching the mainstream scientific consensus concerning evolution without also presenting its alleged “weaknesses” amounted to forcing religious dogma on students. We don’t know whether White is participating in the text book review panels this week in Texas.
  85. Willson, Fred and Steve Deckard carry on the work of Dr. Richard Bliss with the Good Science workshops at ICR. Nominated by CSHF.
  86. Zeiger, David is a seventh-grade teacher at a Christian private school in North Texas. He holds a biochemistry degree from the University of Texas at Dallas. In 2009 he and his wife, Heather, opposed removing from the state’s science curriculum standards the requirement that students learn about so-called “weaknesses” of evolution. Creationists have used that requirement to insist that publishers include discredited arguments challenging evolution, such as supposed “gaps” in the fossil record.

  1. James and Helen,
    Thank you for your encouragement. Yes, you are right. Giving men and women their ‘earthly honor’ as we wait for our ‘heavenly honor’ is something long over due. We do need fireworks and applause for these creationists. They have worked hard honoring God’s Word as literally written in Genesis and have been at times, demonized for their beliefs. I say, “Hats off to all of them”! Nick Lally

  2. Small correction in my entry: the Taylor Trail mold is the longest mold ever made of in-situ dinosaur/man tracks to date. My three molds at the Waco Sudden Death Site are the three largest molds of fossil in-situ skeletons to date – 2012.

  3. Joe, I corrected your “Honorable Mention” insertion. See # 48 on list. Thank you for your interest in the CSHF. Please share the CSFH with your base, other Christians, and “home-schoolers”. The site encourages, teaches, plants seeds, and demonstrates to the world that Creationists are ready to give an answer. Nick

    • Dr Philip, thank you for nominating Chris Ashcraft. It was a pleasure listing Chris on the Creation Science Hall of Fame, “Honorable Mention” page. Please keep in touch and help circulate the CSHF to Christian Home Schooled organizations, educators, and friends. Nick Lally, Chairman, Board of Directors, CSHF.
