The International Conference on Creationism (ICC) meets this year, and our staff at Answers in Genesis is looking forward to it! Now, the ICC is held every four or five years and is a ministry of the Creation Science Fellowship of Pittsburgh. I encourage you to read the history of how the ICC came about on its website. The conference is meeting from August 4–8 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, this year.
Many of our researchers on staff attend the ICC, and some of them, such as Dr. Andrew Snelling and Dr. Georgia Purdom, present peer-reviewed research papers. You see, all the papers that are presented at the ICC are peer-reviewed—despite the claims of secularists who say that creation research isn’t reviewed or edited. According to the ICC website, the conference is dedicated to providing (1) "a technical forum for the latest creation research" and (2) "a coherent platform for the pedagogical, professional, and legal issues involved in the teaching of creation science at the secondary and tertiary levels."
The conference is very well attended and usually draws in people from overseas.
I am attending, along with a number of others from the Answers in Genesis staff. I will be the opening speaker on Sunday, August 4, at 7:00 PM, giving a talk titled Genesis, Biblical Authority & the Age of the Earth. My talk is free and open to the public.
Dr. Snelling, a geologist and the Director of Research at Answers in Genesis, emphasizes the necessity of the ICC: “The International Conference on Creationism is the peak gathering of creation scientists and those informed lay people who want to hear about or present the latest creationist research. The conference provides the opportunity for rubbing shoulders and having discussions with other creationists as well as networking for ongoing research. This is a not-to-be-missed conference.” See creationicc.org for more details.
Dr. Snelling also oversees the Answers Research Journal, a peer-reviewed technical journal available for free online.
We’re looking forward to being able to share more of the latest creation research with you.
Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
