Dear Sir,

Attached is a check for ,000 to be split evenly in funding the research of Drs. Austin and Snelling. I have enjoyed the research of these two gentlemen in their study of argon dating and have hopes that their continued work in this area will help to present further evidence that this method of dating has flaws that must be examined by the secular scientific community. I have also enjoyed the work of Dr. Austin in the film regarding the Mount St. Helens eruption. I would like to encourage these two scientists in their work and additionally all their fellow scientists at ICR in their endeavors to present a model for scientific creationism.

I am moved to make this contribution in the name of my late father, Howard E. Robb, who was a devoted scientist and engineer, but was a strong atheist practically up until his death. His acceptance of the Lord Jesus' grace and unconditional love came at the last few minutes of his life. My father was strongly influenced by evolution science and its dogmatic claims had a strong, almost unyielding grip that snuffed out the once strong faith he had when he was a young boy. Years of heartfelt prayer were answered when he accepted the Lord.

It is in the name of my father, and many like him who have been duped by evolution science into abandoning their faith, that I write you to encourage you in the battle for truth. Continue your work—your battle is for truth and for the salvation of souls—there cannot be a more noble cause than this. Finish well!

In His Name,
John H. Robb

We thank our gracious Lord for each person who makes this ministry possible. A special thanks to John Robb who so beautifully captured why each of us gladly sacrifice to carry the battle forward.
