Creationist research < © i S t
Christians need to keep on providing
scientific answers within a biblical
framework, and refining our case
(including exposing whatever flaws
there may be in old arguments).
We also need to be ready to respond
to challenges by critics.
Faith-funded creationist ministries like
Creation Ministries International Ltd (CMI)
can only do so much, not having access to
Creationist membership societies with
hundreds of scientist members are
encouraging by their very existence. But
they are usually just as hampered by funding
constraints, and would dearly love more of
their members to get involved in actively
helping the creationist model.
We have many qualified scientists and other
educated professionals on our mailing lists,
and we would like to encourage more of you
to each give just a little bit of spare time to
creation research issues.
Start by getting as informed as possible
through the existing literature. CMI can
provide up-to-date catalogues.
JOINING THE NETWORK
Consider researching a particular area with a
view to producing a paper. Journal of Creation
is a great place to air it. CMI is more than
willing to provide refereeing through our
contacts. If you are concerned that publishing
in a creationist journal might affect your
employment, for example, a pseudonym may
be acceptable. If you are keen to write, see
our instructions to authors opposite.
Remember that the creation/evolution issue
is often not so much about facts as about their
interpretation. Often the research results
produced by secular institutions operating
within an evolutionary framework can
be just as useful in providing answers for
creationists—it just needs someone to go
to the trouble of working it through. We can
provide some guidance about how you can
draw your research into a suitable paper.
NO CONTRIBUTION TOO SMALL
Even producing a brief Perspective item on a
specialist area, if it will teach and inform Journal
of Creation readers, and enable them to share
with others, is a worthwhile contribution.
AND FINALLY …
You might want to consider a donation
earmarked specifically for creationist research.
If so, you could direct it to any of the CMI
offices listed at the front of this journal. Such
donations may be tax deductible in certain
