David Plaisted, PhD, is a professor of computer science at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, North Carolina. He received his B.S. from the University of Chicago in 1970 and his PhD from Stanford in 1976. He also has taken an active interest in creation science, and maintains this Web page to share his thoughts with the public:
The theory of evolution explains the origin of all life on earth by ordinary physical and chemical processes. This theory has been very well developed, and has considerable intellectual appeal. However, for one who interprets the Christian Bible literally, there are apparent contradictions between evolution and the account in Genesis. This page shows how it is possible to reconcile a literal reading of Genesis with a surprising amount of the scientific evidence. We do not mean to criticize those who support the theory of evolution, surprising amount of the scientific evidence. We do not mean to criticize those who support the theory of evolution, but for one who is willing to accept the possibility of supernatural intervention, we believe that a creation theory is an acceptable alternative.
