“Thine hands have made me and fashioned me together round about; yet thou dost destroy me.” Job 10:8
Dr. David Menton is a biologist who believes that God created the heavens and the Earth in six days only some six thousand years ago. As he likes to point out, he is a biologist who evolutionists say cannot exist – a biologist who rejects evolution.
But Dr. Menton’s accomplishments make it hard for evolutionists to deny his right to be considered a top-notch scientist. Before completing his doctorate, David Menton worked as a dermatology researcher at the Mayo Clinic. After earning his doctorate, he worked as a research scientist at the University of Iowa, where he made a major discovery acknowledged by fellow scientists. Dr. Menton discovered that skin cells are 14-sided polygons called tetra-kai-deca-he-drons – sort of fun to say when you get the hang of it. He also discovered that these flat tetrakaidecahedrons are stacked and interlocked like poker chips, one exactly on top of another. From this he learned that when skin cells reproduce too rapidly they do not stack as they should, resulting in skin problems like psoriasis. No, there can be no question that Dr. Menton is a qualified biologist.
We wouldn’t want you to think that Dr. Menton is the only scientist, or even the only biologist, who believes in creation as taught in the Bible. Thousands of qualified scientists believe in creation, despite what some evolutionists say.
Dear Father, I give thanks to You for all of the Bible-believing scientists who are working today. Protect them and give them boldness to witness Your truth. I also ask that You would give more of our Bible-believing young people the desire and strength to go into science professions. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
