Do Creationists Make Testable Predictions?

One of the biggest criticisms of biblical creation is, “Creationists don’t make testable predictions.” But that’s simply not true! Biblical creationists do make predictions—many of which have been confirmed by further research.

Here are just a few of those predictions:

  • The strength of several planets’ magnetic systems
  • Helium in earth’s rocks
  • The presence of radiohalos in metamorphosed sandstones
  • Cold material from earth’s crust near the earth’s core
  • The rapid reversal of earth’s magnetic field

Harvard-trained scientist Dr. Nathaniel Jeanson, one of AiG’s research scientists, wrote Replacing Darwin, a book that challenges the evolutionary worldview with research from genetics and offers a testable prediction based on a biblical starting point. If you haven’t read it yet, I encourage you to check out this ground-breaking book Replacing Darwin.

Dr. Jeanson recently sat down with Billy Hallowell, the host of PureTalk, a Pure Flix interview program (you can find this show on Facebook), to discuss this question and to get Dr. Jeanson’s tips for surviving college as a Christian and biblical creationist. This conversation was filmed at our Ark Encounter and is part of the “Answering Atheists” series produced by the leading faith and family video streaming service Pure Flix. I encourage you to watch it below:

Pure Flix hosts all our Answers in Genesis video content (several hundred AiG titles), as well as many inspiring movies, shows, and Pure Flix original productions. It’s a great resource for families to find fun content as well as be equipped to think biblically.
