Why would any educated scientist with a PhD advocate a literal interpretation of the six days of creation? Why, indeed, when only one in three Americans believes "the Bible is the actual word of God and is to be taken literally, word for word" according to a recent Gallup polls.
Science can neither prove nor disprove evolution any more than it can creation. Certainly there are no human eye witness accounts of either. However, certain factors are present today which are capable of swaying one's beliefs one way or the other.
In this book are the testimonies of fifty men and women holding doctorates in a wide range of scientific fields who have been convinced by the evidence to believe in a literal six-day creation. For example, meet:
All fifty of these scientists, through faith and scientific face, have come to the conclusion that God's Word is true and everything had its origin not so very long ago, in the beginning, In Six Days.
