Among the Creationists

Jason Rosenhouse

In this chapter, the author examines some of the scientific claims advanced by proponents of creationism. He reflects on his experience as a participant in the Creation Mega-Conference, held on the campus of Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia, for one week in July 2005. He recalls attending a session called “Rocks Around the Clocks: The Eons That Never Were,” with Emil Silvestru, a geologist originally from Romania, as the speaker. Another talk was “Ape Men, Missing Links and the Bible,” presented by Phillip Bell, who offered two main arguments for rejecting the fossil evidence of human evolution. The first was that all alleged intermediates are either fully human or fully ape; the second involved disagreements among paleontologists regarding the proper classification of hominid fossils.

Keywords:   creationism, Creation Mega-Conference, Emil Silvestru, Bible, Phillip Bell, human evolution, paleontologists, hominid fossils
