The Cost of Truth.

An often used refrain against Biblical Creationists is that genuine scientists do not give any credence to that which sets itself up against the Theory of Evolution.

The notion, of course, is not true.

One example which refutes the refrain is that of Richard (Rick) Errett Smalley (1943–2005), M.A., Ph.D. (Princeton), former Hackerman Professor of Chemistry, Physics, and Astronomy at Rice University who was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1996 for his discovery of (and his research on) a totally new allotrope (form) of carbon.

A summary of the Rick Smalley journey from Evolution to Creation can be seen by clicking on the hypertext.

We are confident that had Rick Smalley not been awarded the Nobel Prize before his walk away from Evolution he would most likely not have received the award afterward. Testament to this is the story of Dr Raymond Damadian, known for having been a Biblical Creationist and who was a principal in the development of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) but overlooked while others involved in the development were recipients of the Nobel Prize.

Yeh, some libel like that was just vomited from Keith Mascord's pen a few days ago. He said that he had read a little creationist literature and was not impressed. Of course, this intellectual pygmy wouldn't name the book(?s), would he?

My favourite scientific giant is Wilder-Smith who had 3 earned PhDs (count them, Keith, you dishonest blasphemer) in biochemistry. He held to a young earth, a world-wide Flood and God creating the earth.

Of course, that darkened silly little college on King St has never had someone with as many earned PhDs employed there.

I was interested to see in the case of Rick Smalley that there was a process i.e. head knowledge then heart conversion.

That is a solid foundation in contrast to those who are all heart and no knowledge.
