Dr. Henry M. Morris, founder of the Institute for Creation Research, spent a lifetime investigating scientific evidences that confirms the Bible. In an age when many people had no answer to evolution, Dr. Morris sought to turn back the tide. Leaving his position as head of the Civil Engineering Department at Virginia Polytechnic Institute during the peak of his academic career, he dove headlong into God’s stronger call on his life: answering the tough questions of faith and science. His book The Genesis Flood, co-written with Dr. John Whitcomb, triggered the modern creationism movement.
The legacy of Dr. Henry M. Morris
“Dr. Morris is one of my heroes of the faith. He is the man the Lord raised up as the father of the modern creationist movement…All of us in the modern creationism movement today would say we stand on his shoulders.” -Ken Ham, President, CEO and Founder of Answers in Genesis
“[Henry M. Morris was] the most important creationist of the 20th century.” -Eugenie C. Scott, Executive Director of the National Center for Science Education
“No voice in the debate over creationism and evolution has ever spoken with more clarity and insight than that of Dr. Henry M. Morris. A brilliant scientist himself, Dr. Morris was also an outstanding theologian and Bible teacher. He could speak with unassailable authority on either geology or Genesis. His brilliant work in the Genesis Flood )co-authored in 1961 with Dr. John Whitcomb) brought those two fields of study together in a way that has never been surpassed. Dr. Morris knew the science and he knew the Scriptures, so he was well-equipped to puncture some of the favorite dogmas of secular skepticism. He was also superbly qualified to demonstrate the remarkable harmony between the Bible and true science. This he did boldly and relentlessly, strengthening the faith of countless students, lay people, scientists, and ministers. I for one have been greatly helped by the work of Dr. Morris, and I am deeply grateful for his courage and instruction.” -John MacArthur, Pastor-Teacher of Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California
