In Six Days: Why Fifty Scientists Choose to Believe in Creation
Harvard professor Stephen Jay Gould, on CNN's Crossfire in November of 1999, said no legitimate scientist in the world believes the Genesis account of creation. So the question was posed, Would any educated, self-respecting scientist with a PhD advocate a literal interpretation of the six days of creation? It's hard enough to find a theologian who adheres to such a credo. Most Christians will say that they believe the Bible yet balk at its first chapters, claiming that science proves the creation account cannot be considered as fact. Do these people realize that science can neither prove nor disprove evolution any more than it can creation? Certainly there are no human eyewitness accounts of either.
The fact is that a lot of faith is required to believe the theory of evolution, while many scientific facts actually support creation. In Six Days presents fifty scientists worldwide, with recognized earned doctorates in various specialties who give personal testimony to their Christian experiences and belief in the Biblical view of creation as contrasted with evolution. Modern science and philosophy are evaluated from many perspectives. The 50 authors from around the world represent a small sample of the scientists who acknowledge Jesus Christ as the Creator-God.
