Donald DeYoung

Dr. Donald B. DeYoung is an avid creation scientist and educator specializing in astronomy and physics. He chairs the Department of Science and Mathematics at Grace College in Winona Lake, Indiana. Don has taught at Grace College since 1972. Sabbatical travels have taken him to San Diego, Europe and the South Pacific. [1] [2]

Dr. DeYoung is the current president of the Creation Research Society with over 1,700 members worldwide. The CRS funds research, operates a lab in Arizona and publishes books and a technical Quartely journal. He gives lectures on many creation topics including astronomy, intelligent design, the Genesis Flood, and dinosaurs. Don strongly believes that the details in nature definitively point to the Creator and His love for mankind. Don also conducts workshops for children with hands-on Bible-science activities. He also writes and speaks for the organization Answers in Genesis. [3]

Dr. DeYoung is a member of the Creation Research Society, the Indiana Academy of Science and the Au Sable Environmental Institute. The Au Sable Institute strives to “promote Christian environmental stewardship through academic and community programs, retreats and conferences.” [4]

In his local church Don is a Sunday-school teacher, elder and small-group leader. He is married to Sally; they have three married daughters.

Dr. DeYoung has written seventeen books and many articles on creation topics. The books cover topics in Bible-sciences including several books aimed towards children. [5] [6]

Dr. DeYoung's background includes a Master of Divinity theological qualification. [7]

My scientific belief in creation is largely based on two thermodynamic laws of nature. The first law states that energy is conserved or constant at all times. This rule ensures a dependable and predictable universe, whether for stars or for human life. The second basic law…describes unavoidable losses in any process which involves the transfer of energy. This law is directly related to the Curse which was placed upon nature at the fall of mankind in Eden. Secular science has no satisfactory explanation for such laws of nature, and these laws are entirely consistent with the biblical, six-day creation. [8]
