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.
"Proving the existence of God."
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.
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.
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.
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.)
- 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
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.
June 29 update: Kent Hovind wins release!
The Creation Science Hall of Fame offers its humble praises to God for the impending release from prison of Dr. Kent Hovind. Mr. Karl Priest sent this information to the CSHF:
Praise God, July 8th Kent Hovind will be released from Federal Prison to serve the last month of his sentence in Home Confinement. The family is so excited about this news and would love for you to celebrate with us! Will tell you when and where the party is soon! Stay Tuned. https://www.facebook.com/drkenthovind
CSHF is fully mobile-ready!
On April 21, the leading search engine announced from now on, it would rank the "mobile friendship" of a site in its search rankings. The Creation Science Hall of Fame vigorously supports all efforts to make the World Wide Web a friendly place for smartphone, tablet, and other mobile-device users, not merely those who use high-end devices. CSHF has always had a separate "mobile theme." We recently installed a new "mobile theme" that better reflects the same distinctive colors you are used to seeing on a desktop, plus a new, explicitly mobile-friendly version of our Menu Bar. Check it out! We welcome your feedback on how easy CSHF is to load and navigate on your smartphone, tablet, or any other mobile device.
Breaking: Answers in Genesis to sue Kentucky for reneging on Ark Encounter
From Answers in Genesis: As construction moves forward on the life-size Ark, Answers in Genesis (AiG) confirmed today it is filing a federal lawsuit against Kentucky state officials for denying the park participation in the state’s tax rebate incentive program. Although the program is available to all qualifying tourist attractions seeking to build in the state, AiG’s application was rejected solely because of the religious identity and message of AiG. The lawsuit explains how this action by Kentucky officials, including Gov. Steve Beshear, violates federal and state law and amounts to unlawful viewpoint discrimination. Constitutional law attorney Mike Johnson is the chief counsel of Freedom Guard and is serving as counsel in the case with Nate Kellum, chief counsel of the Center for Religious Expression. Both public interest law firms are providing their legal services to AiG free of charge. From Ken Ham, President of AiG:
Our organization spent many months attempting to reason with state officials so that this lawsuit would not be necessary. However, the state was so insistent on treating our religious entity as a second-class citizen that we were simply left with no alternative but to proceed to court. This is the latest example of increasing government hostility towards religion in America, and it’s certainly among the most blatant.
