ICR Featured in The Dallas Morning News


The Institute for Creation Research was featured on the front page of the August 15, 2014, edition of The Dallas Morning News in an article that contrasts the evolutionary story with young-earth creationism.1

The report by Morning News' Scott Farwell contained the standard evolutionary claims—that the universe is 13.8 billion years old, the earth is 4.5 billion years old, and humans split from chimpanzees and gorillas about 4 million to 7 million years ago.

But as Farwell reported, "Young-earth creationists like those at ICR argue that everything in the known universe began 6,000 to 10,000 years ago."1 He included statements from ICR's scientists about numerous compelling evidences for recent creation such as galaxies' spiral winding problem, genetic mutation clocks, and soft tissues found in fossils. But Farwell ended the article with a quote from SMU professor Dr. Ronald Wetherington, who claimed ICR scientists "are not scientists" and that they "cherry-pick data" to justify the Genesis account.1

Do evolutionists use "real science" while creation scientists do not? In Creation Science Update next week, ICR will address Wetherington's Dallas Morning News statements and respond to Farwell's remark in his August 15th NBC News interview that ICR does not conduct original research.2

ICR scientists, "a group of nine Ph.D.s from places like Harvard and Los Alamos National Laboratory,"1 did not get their credentials through "cherry-picking" data or "skimming" research. They understand that real science involves real research—which is what the Institute for Creation Research has always done.
