Speakers

Ken Ham

The president and founder of Answers in Genesis–U.S. and the highly acclaimed Creation Museum, Ken Ham is one of the most in-demand Christian speakers in North America. Ham, a native Australian now residing near Cincinnati, Ohio, is the author of numerous books on the book of Genesis, the accuracy and authority of the Bible, dinosaurs, and the destructive fruits of evolutionary thinking (including his co-authored new book on the “races” and racism, Darwin’s Plantation, and the bestseller, The Lie: Evolution). He appears frequently on American TV (in 2007 alone: Fox’s The O’Reilly Factor and Fox and Friends in the Morning, CNN’s The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer, ABC’s Good Morning America, the BBC radio/TV, etc.).

Ken hosts the daily radio program, “Answers … with Ken Ham,” heard on more than 900 stations in America (and dozens more overseas) and is one of the editors and contributing authors for AiG’s Answers magazine (a biblical worldview publication with over 60,000 worldwide subscribers). The newly opened high-tech Creation Museum near the Cincinnati Airport — which attracted over 400,000 visitors (and several of the world’s major media) in its first year—was Ken’s brainchild.

Dr. Andrew Snelling

Dr. Andrew Snelling, one of the world’s most respected creation scientists specializing in geological studies, joined Answers in Genesis in 2007 as the organization’s new director of research, and also as a speaker for layperson and technical audiences. The addition of Dr. Snelling has further confirmed AiG’s effort to meet the highest standards in its research in creation studies.

Dr. Snelling, who spent considerable time serving as a consultant in developing the AiG Creation Museum’s large flood-geology room, becomes AiG’s first full-time Ph.D. in the field of geology. Dr. Snelling earned his PhD degree in geology from the University of Sydney in Australia.

Dr. David Menton

Dr. Menton was awarded "Professor of the Year" in 1998 while associate professor of anatomy at the respected Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis—now a professor emeritus (he holds a PhD in cell biology from an Ivy League school, Brown University). Audiences of all ages enjoy Dr. Menton’s well-illustrated (and often humorous) presentations on a variety of fascinating topics, such as the human body, feathers and birds, and the Scopes trial. Since AiG's Creation Museum opened in 2007, he has been interviewed by several media outlets, including ABC-TV's World News Tonight with Charles Gibson, January 2008

Dr. David DeWitt

Dr. David A. DeWitt received a B.S. in biochemistry from Michigan State University and a Ph.D. in neuroscience from Case Western Reserve University. Currently a professor of biology and director of the Center for Creation Studies at Liberty University, he is active in teaching and research. He teaches upper level biology courses in cell biology and biochemistry. His primary research efforts have been to understand the mechanisms causing cellular damage in Alzheimer's disease. He has authored and co-authored articles that have appeared in peer-reviewed journals such as Brain Research and Experimental Neurology, as well as author of Unraveling the Origins Controversy.

Dr. Marcus Ross

Marcus Ross has loved paleontology (especially dinosaurs) since he was a kid growing up in Rhode Island. He has continued pursuing this passion, currently researching about a group of extinct marine reptiles called mosasaurs. He is greatly interested in issues surrounding the creation-evolution controversy and the intersection of geology with the Biblical events of creation and Noah's Flood. He and his wife Corinna live in Lynchburg, Virginia.
