(p.187) 29 Building the Creation Model
Among the Creationists

Oxford University Press

In this chapter, the author reflects on the Sixth International Conference on Creationism, held in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, in August 2008. The event represents the most serious attempt by creationists to hold an actual scientific research conference. The conference proceedings were a highly professional volume, encompassing a wide range of disciplines such as earth science, stellar and planetary sciences, life sciences, foundations of science, and social science and the humanities. One of the sessions was “A Critique of the Precreation Chaos Gap Theory,” which tackles the gap theory, a form of old-earth creationism that posits a long gap of time between two of the early verses of Genesis 1. In this way the integrity of the creation account can be preserved while allowing for an Earth of ancient age. This talk stood in stark contrast to the standard caricature of creationist exegesis.
