Theological Summary and Reflections
The research presentations of ten eminent scholars from four nations pertaining to different perspectives on creationism are summarized. Their fields of expertise include engineering design, ecology, geology, physics, genetics, mathematical statistics, mechanical engineering, cellular and developmental biology, thermodynamics, paleobiochemistry, and New Testament. Their scientific, philosophical, and theological contributions provide up-to-date developments regarding creationism as science, the origin of the universe, the origin of rocks, the origin of information, human origins and design, adaptation and diversity of life, and why a creationist interpretation of the Bible matters theologically and ethically.
