Meet the Author

A prolific and influential scholar known to believers and skeptics alike as “the father of modern creation science,” Dr. Henry M. Morris truly was a man of science and a staunch man of God. He was even said to have set the terms of debate about evolution for the second half of the 20th century by one Pulitzer Prize-winning academician. Dr. Morris began his serious study of the Bible in the 1930s and authoring books in the 1940s, but it was his landmark work, co-authored with Dr. John Whitcomb, titled The Genesis Flood in 1961 that influenced generations to begin discovering the fallacies of evolution and the biblical truth of creation.

With over 60 books, founding and leading the Institute for Creation Research (ICR), Dr. Morris’ death in 2006 was a profound loss to millions.

Dr. Morris created a thriving legacy that continues to equip many Christians to be able to defend the accuracy and authority of Scripture today. The new Henry Morris Study Bible and other resources that he developed remain essential sources of knowledge and understanding for believers.

    wonderful resource to supplement any science curriculum

    The conventional wisdom is that with all the advances which "science" has made in our day, it is impossible for a "true" scientist to believe in God, creation, and the Bible. In fact, I can just see all the atheists and evolutionists sitting together in the lotus position around a Buddha-like image of Charles Darwin with their hands folded, chanting their mantra, "Evolution is science, creation is religion; evolution is science, creation is religion," over and over again, apparently thinking that if they just say it long and loud enough, doing so will make it true and everyone will believe it.
    In this book, the late Henry M. Morris, founder and long-time president of the Institute for Creation Research in San Diego, CA, chronicles the lives and beliefs of 101 great scientists of the past who firmly believed in God and for the most part rejected evolution. Some of them will be familiar to most people, such as Blaise Pascal, Isaac Newton, Michael Faraday, Louis Pasteur, George Washington Carver, and, for those of us who grew up in the rocket age, Werner Von Braun. Others will not be as well known, but their contributions to science are no less valuable. In fact, their accomplishments were the result of their firm belief that the universe was created in an orderly fashion rather than the result of random chance, and thus they were simply seeking to find the natural laws that God had established in creation. The book was republished in 1992 by the New Leaf Publishing Group. It contains brief biographies and is not an exhaustive treatment of the subject, but it is a wonderful resource to supplement any science curriculum.

    Men of Science, Men of God: Great Scientists Who Believed the Bible

    Men of Science, Men of God is a compilation of short biographies about famous scientists (101 in total), all who were out-of-the-closet creationists. Many of the 20th century scientists discussed in this book were very active in a creation movement, (such as Douglas Dewar), and some were open about their creationism but did not have the time to be very involved, such as was the case with Wernher von Braun, the founder of the American apace program. Morris even shows that many founders of the various branches of science were creationists. The charge of evolutionists that no practicing scientist can be a creationist is refuted not only by these biographies, but also by those of many modern scientists, many who keep a low profile about their creationism. In medical school and university when studying for my degrees, I found out that many of my professors were in-the-closet creationists, known only to some of their friends and a few students. Such is the intolerance in 'academia' today against a theistic world view. Unfortunately, these in-the-closet creationists are making things easier for Darwinists. As a result of their fear, many people fall into the trap of the evolutionists when they claim that 'no scientist can be a creationist.' One at times hears school kids and even adults claim 'If creation is true, why are there not many scientists who agree with it?' Or, 'all scientists are evolutionists, so, Darwinism must be true'. Thus, those closet creationist just make things worse by not honestly coming forth. And the number of conservative creation scientists in America alone is estimated at over 10,000 (and all creationists of all stripes is estimated at over 40,000). If all of them came out-of-the-closet evolutionists could no longer censor creation conclusions from science, and especially the classrooms of America and the world.

    Men of Science, Men of God: Great Scientists Who Believed the Bible

    Men of Science is a compilation of short biographies of famous scientists, all who were creationists, and many of the more recent scientists were active in the creation movement. Included are Pascal (the founder of the science of hydrostatics), Boyle (one of the founders of modern chemistry), Kepler (the founder of the field physical astronomy), Bacon (considered the founder of the scientific method), Linnaeus (the founder of the field of taxonomy), Faraday (founder of the field of electromagnetic induction), Dalton (a major early contributor of the field of atomic theory), Davey (a pioneer in thermokinetics), Mendel (founder of the field of genetics), Dewar, Lamoine, Ramsey, von Braun, Demadian (medical school professor and inventor of the MRI) and scores of others. The charge of evolutionists that no scientist can be a creationist is refuted not only by these case histories but also by those of many modern scientists who keep a low profile about their creationism. Many of my colleagues at the medical school and university (which is most of my academic experience) were in-the-closet creationists, known only to their closest friends. With good reason they stayed in the closet, and many now have international reputations in their field. When they retire, some come out of the closet, and then only cautiously. Such is the intolerance against a theistic world view in 'science' today.

    Why Didn't I Hear About this in School?

    This is a great little book with short bios on great scientists (and I mean the leaders of their fields) who believed in God. When we consider that what we believe dictates what we will do and how we will act and how we treat others, can we afford not to understand the beliefs of some of the greatest men of science? Should our students be kept ignorant of their guiding convictions? This is a wonderful book which I highly recommend. I only wish full length individual biographies of these men exisited that didn't relegate their beliefs which animated them to trivia. As a man thinks in his heart so is he. (a quote but I can't remember from where).
