Jeffrey P. Tomkins has a Ph.D. in Genetics from
Clemson University, an M.S. in Plant Science from the
University of Idaho, Moscow, and a B.S. in Agriculture
Ed. from Washington State University. He was on the
Faculty in the Dept of Genetics and Biochemistry,
Clemson University, for a decade, where he published
58 secular research papers in peer-reviewed scientific
journals and seven book chapters in scientific books—in
the area of genetics, genomics, and proteomics. For
the past five years, Dr Tomkins has been a Research
Scientist at ICR where he has published 20 peer-reviewed creation science journal papers, numerous
semi-technical articles on the ICR web site and their
magazine Acts & Facts, and two books.
Jerry Bergman has nine academic degrees, including 5
masters and two PhDs. His major areas of study for his
graduate work include anatomy and physiology, biology,
chemistry, and psychology. He has graduated from
Wayne State University in Detroit, Medical University
of Ohio in Toledo, University of Toledo and Bowling
Green State University. A prolific writer with over a
thousand publications to his credit, including 43 books
and monographs, Dr Bergman has taught biology,
microbiology, anatomy and physiology, chemistry,
biochemistry, geology, astronomy and psychology at
the college level. Now retired, he has taught at The
University of Toledo Medical College, The University
of Toledo, Bowling Green State University and other
schools for a total of close to 50 years.
