Creation Scientists—They’re Real Scientists!

As Christian young people enter STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) education, training, or careers, they may hear this common mantra, “creationists don’t do real science!” or “creationists can’t be scientists!” Nothing could be farther from the truth. You don’t have to adopt a naturalistic, usually atheistic, interpretation of the evidence to be a great scientist. You can start with the Bible, as many scientists in the past did and many today still do.

If you join us this summer here at Camp Infinity, you’ll get to do real science. We don’t shy away from it—we love science! We specifically hire counsellors who are in STEM majors because we want you to learn about STEM. And our many, varied activities—including our popular robotics program—are designed to help you learn more about STEM, within the context of a biblical worldview. We aren’t afraid of science. We love it, teach it, and want you to study it to God’s glory.

Ken Ham, the president of the creation apologetics ministry Answers in Genesis, recently published a blog answering the question “Can Creation Scientists Do Real Science?” It features an interview with astronomer, and former professor, Dr. Danny Faulkner. Here’s an excerpt from that blog:  

Some people want to make this arbitrary distinction that you have to buy into the metaphysical assertion that there is nothing more than the physical world [in order to do science]. In his book and TV show Cosmos, the late Carl Sagan began with this very famous statement: “The cosmos is all that is or ever was or ever will be.” And many people hearing that think that’s a very profound scientific statement, but there’s not a bit of science in that—it’s a very broad, bold assertion of his worldview. It’s a denial of anything other than the physical.

But you can’t know that as a scientist. You can believe that, and you can assume that. But it’s an assumption, a belief, a faith statement. Now people say it’s not religious—but it’s a faith statement of no faith, so it is a faith statement.

I encourage you to read Ken Ham’s full blog on the Answers in Genesis website. Learn more about Camp Infinity, or apply today, at CampInfinity.com/Camps.
