Q: What’s ahead for Answers Research Journal?
A: It began on January 9, 2008, in a maelstrom of controversy. Despite such an initial reaction, Answers Research Journal has, in less than a year, grown from a humble start with three peer-reviewed papers to a popular destination for serious creation researchers and a fast-growing repository of investigations from those on the new frontiers of science.
ARJ launched earlier this year with the goal of bringing the best in creation science to publication as quickly, efficiently, and accurately as possible. This research is not only on the cutting edge, but freely available for everyone. The journal wasn’t the first peer-reviewed biblical scientific journal, though critics attacked it as if it were, but it is the first free technical journal to break through academic censorship with cutting insights not limited by page length or other restrictions common to printed journals.
Understandably, the secular world has not been happy. A journal that shows how God’s creation affirms the trustworthiness of the Bible, eschews evolutionary propaganda, and offers peer-reviewed research to build the creation model is certainly not going to sit well with those who want Darwinian indoctrination to be the only viewpoint allowed. Many secular journals have chimed in with mockery and derision (there have even been attempts to submit bogus papers), but God has used such attacks to bring nearly 200,000 people to the site and to generate more interest in creation research than ever before.
In fact, the number—and quality—of the papers submitted have exceeded expectations (195 pages worth, and much more on the way next year). If you haven’t already, be sure to review Volume 1. While it is true that secular journals have as many pages and more in each issue, thanks to the 2008 Sixth International Conference on Creationism, ARJ, and the other quality creation research journals, examining God’s world through the truth of His Word has never been as exciting or as popular, nor has there been such enthusiasm about real scientific research. Truly, ARJ is proving that there is no chasm between science and religion. Nature, instead, testifies to God’s glory—and the best is yet to come.
