One of the primary methods the Enemy uses to sow seeds of doubt in the mind of the believer is by undermining our belief in the most basic of all Biblical truths - the clear teaching that God created the universe, and created all living creatures fully formed. If the believer can be dissuaded that this belief is true, then all of Scripture becomes instantly undermined.
Secular society and all levels of academia are flooded with the theory of evolution - an obsolete proposition from the 1800's that is routinely promoted as proven science. Despite the fact that all scientific advances in the past several hundred years have contributed to the mountain of evidence against the theory of evolution - while at the same time nicely aligning with the need for an intelligent creator - the secular "scientists" have doubled down on their advocacy of this theory.
There are really only two possibilities regarding origins - either everything was created deliberately by an external, intelligent
force (God), or it came about randomly by itself (evolution). Which proposition is best supported by the available evidence? Is the belief in a Biblical creation anti-scientific? These are questions the believer must investigate. We hope you will find the resources below to be helpful in your search!

The Institute for Creation Research (ICR) wants people to know that God’s Word can be trusted in everything it speaks about - from how and why we were made, to how the universe was formed, to how we can know God and receive all He has planned for us. After almost 50 years of ministry, ICR remains a leader in scientific research within the context of Biblical creation. Founded by Dr. Henry Morris in 1970, the institute exists to conduct scientific research within the realms of origins and Earth history, and then to educate the public both formally and informally through graduate and professional training programs, through conferences and seminars around the country, and through books, magazines, and media presentations.
Creation Ministries International's overall focus is the authority of the Bible. CMI's goal is to strengthen Christians with faith-building, theologically and scientifically accurate answers to questions that people have about the Genesis creation account.

The website features a multitude of articles and information regarding creation vs. evolution, including a verse-by-verse study of the key creation chapters of Genesis. In addition, CMI puts out an excellent quarterly magazine and journal, as well as having a publishing ministry that produces high quality books and DVDs to help you continue your research.

Discovery Institute promotes thoughtful analysis and effective action on local, regional, national and international issues. The Institute is home to an inter-disciplinary community of scholars and policy advocates dedicated to the reinvigoration of traditional Western principles and institutions and the worldview from which they issued. Discovery Institute has a special concern for the role that science and technology play in our culture and how they can advance free markets, illuminate public policy and support the theistic foundations of the West. They are strong advocates of the scientific necessity of the creation of the universe through Intelligent Design - the effort to empirically detect whether the apparent design in nature acknowledged by virtually all biologists is genuine design (the product of an intelligent cause) or is simply the product of an undirected process such as natural selection acting on random variations.
Stephen C. Meyer is director of the Discovery Institute's Center for Science and Culture and a founder of the Intelligent Design movement. Dr. Meyer is a Cambridge University-trained philosopher of science, the author of peer-reviewed publications in technical, scientific, philosophical and other books and journals. His signal contribution to ID theory is given most fully in "Signature in the Cell: DNA and the Evidence for Intelligent Design," published by HarperOne in June 2009. Meyer earned his Ph.D. in the History and Philosophy of Science from Cambridge University for a dissertation on the history of origin of life biology and the methodology of the historical sciences. His website and YouTube feature scientific papers, articles, resources, debates, and videos related to the topic of Intelligent Design.
