Joe Spears realized the value of creation science after attending a seminar in Raleigh, NC. There he found out about the local creation group, the Triangle Association for the Science of Creation (TASC). He began attending TASC meetings, eventually becoming a member of their board, their webmaster, and chairman. He has written several articles which can be found on the TASC website and in some TASC newsletters (which are archived on the site). He has a BS and MS in engineering and has taught technical college courses.
