An account of the scientific case for creation by henry m morris

Morris rejects the obvious answer—rain clouds—because Genesis 2: Solum has criticized the work for being inaccurate. Unfortunately, some people still use the arguments in these books even though all of them have been thoroughly and brutally proven to be chock full of nothing but crap.

He seems to have virtually no idea what those he argues against actually believe. Some areas were helpful, however, like the sections regarding the origin of life. This is a bad idea for a Creationist.

Man of Science, Man of God: Henry M. Morris

He taught hydraulic engineering, and that interest, coupled with his belief that the Bible provided an accurate account of history, led him to ponder how the Great Flood reported in Genesis might be explained in scientific terms.

Why is it that the first mammal to appear happens to be the most reptile like of all subsequent mammals and happens to appear just after the most mammal like of all reptiles?

Although others urged him to resort to miracles, Burnet declared: Surely, somewhere, at least one courageous trilobite would have paddled on valiantly as its colleagues succumbed and won a place in the upper strata.

Morris could not be more direct in conceding that a Flood of the magnitude described in Genesis was impossible without a suspension of natural law: Morris spent the next two decades as a member of the civil engineering faculty of four different universities, before taking a job as the head of the department at Virginia Polytechnic Institute in Morristook over the presidency of ICR when his father retired.

Not my any means consistent with natural laws operating today. No trilobite lies in the upper strata because they all perished million years ago. We were not there…. More than any other work, the book revitalized interest in a young earth cosmology among evangelical Christians.

The unmistakable aim of ICR is not to convert leading scientists to their way of thinking—an all-but-impossible task—but rather to influence textbook writers, school boards, and the unskeptical public. Jul 02, Frank Peters rated it it was ok As a number of other reviews have stated, this appears to be the best scientific argument for 6-day creation.

But Burnet, unlike Morris, resisted the temptation to simply call for a divine assist. Overall, a good book for the researcher and enthusiast. Morris eventually left his faculty position at Virginia Tech in to focus on his work in creationism, after university interactions with a new engineering dean who directed Morris not to list creationist works alongside his engineering publications, viewing his non-engineering writings and increasing persona to be "too controversial.

If you read this it might hurt your brain. ICR is an openly Christian operation. As a so-called Christian book, I found it quite embarrassing. This book would not be my first choice for an apologetic reference, but it is definitely helpful and insightful as far as what the creationist movement used to be like.

It is also extremely unfortunate as much of the science was flawed. Mammals occupy virtually every corner of this planet. Their claim about fossils is based on a Young Earth creationist misunderstanding of how rocks are dated relative to each other, and how the geologic column was constructed.

Anyways, this book is full of arguments that are supposed to be proof of Creationism, but they quite easil I read this book back in High School when I started my insatiable need for knowledge and pretty much believed it at the time.

Morris, the man who would revive the creationist movement in with a popular book promoting the idea of a worldwide flood and then, two years later, found the Institute for Creation Research, grew up in the Texas of the s and s as a religiously indifferent youth.

He served as President of Christian Heritage College from to If we do not assume that elements decayed in the past at the same rate they do today and how can we prove that they did?

Some are very large, some are extremely small, some are quick, some slow, some burrow into the ground, some swim in the ocean, some climb the highest trees. Whitcomb The Genesis Flood: And when they do appear, with incredible bad luck, the fossils arrive in just the right sequence to piece together imaginary evolutionary sequences in a dozen different families.

He imagined the earth as a sort of huge pressure cooker rupturing its skin and allowing surging internal waters to cover the earth. The astronomy section was especially obvious.

Whitcombwhich some regard as the first significant attempt in the 20th century to offer a systematic scientific explanation for creationism.Scientific Creationism delivers a meticulously researched, scientific investigation of the most important aspects of the creation-evolution question.

Dr. Henry Morris along with the Institute for Creation Science researchers and consultants allow science to speak for itself without referencing the Bible or other religious literature in this undeniable study of /5.

This updated and current printing, Science and the Bible, continues the tradition of comparing up-to-date scientific data with the infallible Word of God.

Rarely have there been more widespread vicious attacks on biblical Christianity than there are today, and yet the scientific evidences for the divine origin and truth of the Bible have never.
