About the Author

Dr. Duane Gish is a man who, in addition to his accomplishments as a speaker and writer, is known by many as the foremost creationist debater in the world today. His travels have taken him to virtually every state in the continental U.S. and into 30 countries. Dr. Gish is listed in American Men of Science and Who’s Who in the West. He is a member of the American Chemical Society, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and is a Fellow of the American Institute of Chemists.

Dr. Gish received his Ph.D. in biochemistry in 1953 from the University of California, Berkeley. His interest in the creation/evolution issue grew until, in 1971, he left The Upjohn Company to join the faculty at the newly established (1970) Christian Heritage College and its research division. In 1972, the latter changed its name to the Institute for Creation Research, and Dr. Gish has served as Associate Director and Vice President since that time.


This book is dedicated to Masami Usami, M.D., of Mito, Japan, President of the Creation Science Association of Japan, for his dedicated, selfless, and untiring efforts to make known the truth of God’s creation to the people of Japan.


The author wishes to acknowledge that this book is the product of a major team effort. The artwork gives obvious testimony to the artistic abilities of the artists, Earl and Bonnie Snellenberger, but their work also involved many hours of researching each subject. Special thanks are due to the production manager, Gloria Clanin, who designed this book, and put in countless hours, not only as production manager, but also in research, editing, and other areas. Thanks are also due to Barrie Lyons for research and editing, to John Rajca, whose technical assistance and overview of the subject has been invaluable, and to Ron Hight, for production assistance and final layout.
