In the increasingly secular age in which we live, it is all too easy to forget that the major disciplines of science were founded by men of broadly Christian convictions. Their names are perhaps familiar to us - Boyle, Ray, Hooke, Newton, Faraday - but there is often an embarrassed silence concerning the spiritual beliefs that motivated these scientific giants. Like the astronomer, Kepler, these men perceived that in their scientific insights they were 'thinking God's thoughts after him'. Today, however, there is a sense of collective amnesia about the religious motivations of these men. Over the last two or three centuries, science has become almost completely disconnected from its biblical roots, with the result that the academic culture in which science is practiced today is one of tacit - if not explicit - atheism. Nowhere is this more evident than in the scientific study of how the universe began and developed - the field of origins.
This book has been written in the conviction that the first eleven chapters of the book of Genesis - the Bible's book of beginnings - provide a trustworthy and accurate account of the early history of the universe.
Paul speaks regularly on both the biblical and scientific aspects of the origins question. Paul is well-qualified to speak on these important subjects. He has a BSc (Hons) in Environmental Sciences - Geology/Biology and is a Fellow of the Geological Society. Until October 2002, he was employed as a Senior Information Scientist for a pharmaceutical company. He has written very extensively on the subject of origins and has taken part in international conferences. Paul travels all over the UK - and overseas - speaking in churches, public meetings, schools, sixth-forms and universities. He has taken part in radio and newspaper interviews too.
