Carl Kerby is a former air-traffic controller and a creation apologist speaker who teaches how to defend the Bible against scientific naturalism. He was one of the founding board members for Answers in Genesis,[1] and has been described by AiG as one of their most dynamic lecturers on the Book of Genesis[2] After serving with Answers in Genesis for over 15 years, Carl became the Founder and President of Reasons for Hope. He is a much sought-after speaker both in the United States and abroad, and has spoken in Bermuda, Canada, England, Greece, Israel, Jamaica, Japan, Mexico, the Philippines, Wales and others.[3]

He grew up in a liberal church that taught evolution could be mixed with God's Word. In 1987 Carl Kerby became a Christian after attending a crusade in Salt Lake City, Utah. While an air-traffic controller and riding in the cockpit on a flight, the Creation vs. evolution issue came up during a conversation with the pilots. The co-pilot argued that the Bible and evolution were a totally different worldviews that could not be in harmonized. He then introduced Carl to Ken Ham's book The Lie: Evolution, which helped him trust in the Bible as authoritative on the issue of creation.[4]
