Tom Cantor is also a successful Jewish businessman who came to faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. He is the CEO & President of Scantibodies Laboratory, Inc., one of the largest privately held bio-tech companies in the world, represented on five continents. In addition, Tom Cantor is the Founder of several non-profit organizations including the Life & Light Foundation and Israel Restoration Ministries, which focuses on reaching one of the most unreached groups in the world – God’s lost nation of Jewish people. He is also the owner of the Creation & Earth History Museum and radio host of the Friendship with God program.
Dr. Jobe Martin has spent the last twenty years studying the topic of Biblical Creation vs. Evolution, and lectures frequently on the subject. He began his scientific career as a dentist, and a believer in Darwinian evolution, as he had been taught in numerous courses in high school, undergraduate school, and dental school. Some of his Christian students at the Baylor College of Dentistry challenged him to prove to them that evolution was a correct, complete and accurate explanation for the origin of the earth and all of its abundance of unique life forms. His Creation Proclaims DVD series is fascinating as he lectures on these remarkable animals that cannot be explained by traditional evolution. www.biblicaldiscipleship.org
Gifted by God in many ways, Buddy Davis is a speaker and singer/songwriter for AiG. He is an adventurer and paleo-artist, and he leads the very popular “Creation Adventure” children’s workshop at AiG conferences and at the Creation Museum. Buddy plays many acoustic instruments, and his music is enjoyed around the world. Buddy’s greatest adventure happened in the north of the Alaskan tundra (within the Arctic Circle) with his search for dinosaur bones. His exploration for Noah’s Ark took him to Mt. Ararat in Turkey. He has sculpted more than 60 impressive dinosaur models, many of which have found a new home in the Creation Museum. His work has been featured worldwide in newspapers, magazines, books, and on television. http://www.answersingenesis.org
Brian Thomas received his bachelor’s degree in biology in 1993 and a master’s in biotechnology in 1999 from Stephen F. Austin State University, Nacogdoches, Texas. He taught junior high and high school at Christian schools in Texas, as well as biology, chemistry, and anatomy as an adjunct and assistant professor at Dallas-area universities. Since 2008 Mr. Thomas has been a science writer and editor at ICR, where he contributes news and magazine articles, speaks on creation issues, and researches original tissue fossils. He is the author of Dinosaurs and the Bible and a contributor to Guide to Creation Basics, Creation Basics & Beyond, and Guide to Dinosaurs. www.icr.org
Creationist Col. Jeffrey Williams, NASA Astronaut. During his six months aboard the International Space Station in 2006, Colonel Jeffrey N. Williams orbited the earth more than 2,800 times and took more photographs of earth than any astronaut in history. Every shot contains lessons about God’s creation. Every view from the window of the Space Station contains countless vivid lessons about the meticulous goodness of divine providence, God’s care for His creation, and His wisdom in ordering the universe. Colonel Williams has had the rare privilege of studying earth from heaven’s perspective.
Eric Hovind grew up immersed in the world of apologetics and following college graduation in 1999, he began full-time ministry. President and Founder of Pensacola-based organization, Creation Today, Eric’s passion to reach people with the life-changing message of the Gospel has driven him to speak in five foreign countries and all fifty states. He lives in Pensacola, Florida with his wife Tanya and three children and remains excited about the tremendous opportunity to lead an apologetics ministry in the war against evolution and humanism. Much like a 21st-century Apostle Paul on Mars Hill, in June of 2013, Eric stood on the first monument to atheism in America to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the atheist community. http://www.creationtoday.org
Dr. Andy McIntosh retired from full time work at the University of Leeds, and is now a visiting research professor in Thermodynamics and Combustion Theory. Andy became a Christian in 1969 shortly before going to the University of Wales. He has authored the book “Genesis for Today” and has contributed to a number of others including most recently “Origins –examining the evidence” He has also contributed to TV and radio programs, to present the scientific evidence for creation and design, and lectures in many countries on the subject of origins showing that the science is in favour of special creation followed by the worldwide Flood, and that there is no contradiction between true observational science and the Bible.
