Creation Research Society

From CreationWiki, the encyclopedia of creation science
Jump to: navigation, search

The Creation Research Society is the oldest creation science organization in the United States. It was established due to an inability of creation scientists to publish in peer review journals. Upon their incorporation, the CRS almost immediately began publishing the Creation Research Society Quarterly (CRSQ), which has been in circulation since 1964. The CRS also established a research facility to assist creation scientists in their research efforts. The Van Andel Creation Research Center is located in north-central Arizona.

The primary functions of the Society are:

  • Publication of a quarterly peer-reviewed journal.
  • Conducting research to develop and test creation models.
  • The provision of research grants and facilities to creation scientists for approved research projects.
  • Providing qualified scientists to speak to groups or churches.
From the CRS website - The Creation Research Society is a professional organization of trained scientists and interested laypersons who are firmly committed to scientific special creation. The Society was organized in 1963 by a committee of ten like-minded scientists, and has grown into an organization with worldwide membership.

Main Article: Van Andel Creation Research Center

The Van Andel Creation Research Center is located on five acres fronting U.S. Highway 89, five miles north of Chino Valley, Arizona. The center is located in biological and geological areas of great importance to the creationist position. Also the center is located in near by the Grand Canyon(in two hours drive), which is one of the important sources of Creation Research.

They also have a publications building, so they can store their journals, called "CRSQ", creation books and tapes. The building have rooms for shipping, storing books and another large stuffs.

They have a research library. The library now holds more about 3,000 technical scientific works and 500 reprints. Those are not only for the Creation research, but also for the Evolutionary research. Because they have both information, they can research on their projects more neutrality and more definitely.


In the research center, there are lots of equipments that can help research about creation, so the people in the group can research or get information easier. They have these equipments.

  • Astronomical Telescope
  • Greenhouse
  • Publications Building
  • Scanning Electron Microscope
  • Stardust Meteor Observatory
  • Hewlett Packard Gas Chromatograph
  • Various Light Microscopes
  • Microscope Slide preparation equipment
  • Electronics shop (modestly-equipped)
  • Mechanical shop (partially- equipped)
  • Analytical balance
  • Lab rock crusher.
  • Centrifuges
  • Lab ovens

Published Materials

There are two publications currently put out by the Creation Research Society. These are the CRS Quarterly and Creation Matters. You can find all of the abstracts from CRSQ under abstracts. All of the selected articles for CRSQ can be found under selected articles.


The CRSQ is a peer-reviewed scientific periodical that has been in print ever since 1964 through the Creation Research Society. It includes academic articles where the most important scientific disciplines, and a new point of view on science and the general public as impacted by origins with an emphasis on scientific evidence supporting: intelligent design, a recent creation, and a catastrophic worldwide flood are supported.
