Duane Gish, PhD

Creationist Biochemist


The late Dr. Duane Gish was a man who, in addition to his accomplishments as a speaker and writer, was known by many as the foremost creationist debater in the world today. He logged literally hundreds of thousands of miles in order to bring the truth of creation to adults and children alike. Dr. Gish's travels took him to virtually every state in the continental U.S. and into 25 foreign countries, including the Soviet Union.

His book, Dinosaurs: Those Terrible Lizards, was published when there was very little creationist literature available for children. Evolution: The Challenge of the Fossil Record is the book God has used in the lives of many to lay aside, once and for all, the fallacious ape-man theory.

He held key positions at Berkeley, Cornell University Medical College, and The Upjohn Company, where he collaborated with former Nobel Prize winners in various projects. His interest in the creation/evolution issue grew until, in 1971, he left The Upjohn Company to join the faculty at the newly established (1970) Christian Heritage College and its research division. In 1972, the latter changed its name to the Institute for Creation Research, and Dr. Gish has served as Associate Director and Vice President since that time.

Dr. Gish was not only a distinguished scientist, but also a gracious Christian gentleman. He passed away in March 2013.
