Deceased Inductees

The Creation Science Hall of Fame recognizes scientists, living or dead, who have contributed to our understanding of creation and the Creator. Modern science began with the Renaissance, so the Hall of Fame begins there also.

Paul Lemoine

Paul Lemoine (1878 -1940) was President of the Geological Society of France, Director of the Natural History Museum in Paris, and a chief editor of the Encyclopedic Francaise, 1937 edition. In that work, in the article on evolution, he stated: "The theory of evolution is impossible. At base, in spite of appearances, no one any longer believes in it.... Evolution is a kind of dogma which the priests no longer believe, but which they maintain for their people." LeMoine had once been an evolutionist himself, and apparently no French scientist openly challenged the above statement at the time it was published.

Gregor Mendel

Gregor MendelGregor Johann Mendel (1822 -1884) may seem out of place in this list at first, since we know little of his personal beliefs. However, he chose a monastic calling at a time when this certainly included belief in the basic doctrines of Christianity. He was a creationist and rejected Darwin's evolutionary ideas, although he was quite familiar with them.
