The first thing is to decide what is meant be "recognized scientists" - eminent scientists, less eminent scientists who do perform pure research, or persons with advanced science degrees but perform little or no pure research. If reliable data on belief in creation within the scientific community is not available, we could start by establishing how many scientists believe in a personal god, because the number who literally believe in creation must be somewhat smaller than this.

  • In 1998, a study by Larson and Witham appeared on the leading journal Nature ("Leading scientists still reject God"), showing that of the American scientists who had been elected to the National Academy of Sciences, only about 7 percent believe in a personal god. Religious believers form about40 percent of the less eminent scientists in America.
  • A study in Britain, undertaken by R. Elisabeth Cornwell and Michael Stirrat, involved sending a questionnaire to all 1,074 Fellows of the Royal Society who possessed an email address, offering several propositions and asking the scientists to rank their beliefs on that point from 1 to 7. About 23 percent responded and preliminary results indicate that, of these, 3.3 percent agreed strongly (chose 7) and 78.8 percent disagreed strongly (chose 1) that a personal god exists. A total of 12 Fellows chose 6 or 7 to indicate that they were believers, while 213 Fellows chose 1 or 2 to indicate that they were nonbelievers.
So, in the United States, an undefined majority of scientists do not believe in God. In Britain, 86 percent of eminent scientists do not believe in God. Since some respondents were apparently agnostic (in Britain chose 3,4 or 5) and some who believe in God probably do not believe in creation, the total proportion who do not believe in creation must be somewhat higher than 86 percent.

Is cloning really taking creation out of God's hands?

If you think about it, it sort of is. But what scientists can't replicate is the creation of the original DNA. What scientists do is twist god's creation by taking the DNA of another creature, sticking that DNA in an egg cell, and place the egg cell in the original DNA doner.

What percentage of the world are creationists?

I don't think that you could accurately determine the percentage. There are those that believe in creation and those that believe in evolution. A large part of those that say they believe in creation also believe in evolution to some degree. If you are taking a count of who believes what, put me down for creation with no evolution.

What do Christian scientists believe?

Christian scientists tend to believe in the theory of creation. However, this is not always the case. Creation is the theory which suggests God created the world, however there are different opinions to whether he created the world in 7 days or 7 years or 7000 years. But to answer your question, generally they believe in creation. (see Geneseis - first book in The Bible - for more detail)

How do scientists tie biblical creation in with the extinction of the dinosaurs?

Most scientists do not believe in Biblical Creation, so there is no reason to tie it with the extinction of dinosaurs. However, Creationists often say that humans originally co-existed alongside dinosaurs until the Great Flood, when dinosaurs all drowned.

What year was the flood in the Bible?

According to the Book of Genesis, the Flood occurred approximately 1656 years after creation, or approximately 2348 BCE. However, scientists say that there never was a great flood event as described in the Bible. The only known flood event that could have originated this and other similar legends was the sudden inundation of what is now the Black Sea, in 5200 BCE.


Why do creation scientists disagree with darwin's evolution theory?

Because they are not scientists and have ideological commitments that occludes their view of the truth. When you have a conclusion and then go looking for facts to support you are not doing science. Creation stories are a dime a dozen. All cultures have them and none of these stories, with some of the contradicting each other, agree with reality.


What do scientists say about creation?

The vast majority of scientists say that creation, as opposed to current biological, physical, chemical and astronomical models, is pseudoscience with a religious and political agenda.When we say "majority", we don't just mean 101 to 100. We're talking 999 out of every 1000. Some creation supporters have compiled lists of a few hundred "scientists" which support it. Most of these "scientists" are unqualified; most of the remainder have very little actual qualification. Of the few others, their opinion is based on religious (and not purely scientific) grounds.There are hundreds of thousands of scientists who would attest that their work and research indicates current science to be correct, and creationist claims to the contrary are unfounded, based in misapplication, misunderstanding, and speculation about facts.Quite simply, scientists (as a group) say that creationism is wrong/false/incorrect/fake.ANSWERYou will find that anti-creation scientists are over-represented in the field of Biology despite overwhelming modern evidence and research otherwise by other scientists in other fields such as ENTROPY. [Not old parroted "facts" and opinions passed off as facts but since discredited].Anyway, most scientists couldn't care less - it's just the squeaking wheel that gets the most grease.

Do any qualified scientists support the creation theory?

Prior to reading the answers below, it is perhaps important to note that there is no 'creation theory'. There are various religious creation myths, but no comprehensive and robust scientific model that has any explanatory or predictive power.Answer: Quite a few scientists support creation theory. This places them out of step with the mainstream scientists who believe in autobiogenesis, or a spontaneous origin of life, coupled with evolution. As Richard Dawkins put it "It is a monumental disagreement. One side or the other has got to be wrong, and not just slightly wrong but catastrophically, ignominiously, disastrously wrong."Prior to the 20th Century, most scientists believed in Creation.Today, there are numerous organizations of scientists who support creation theory: Answers in Genesis ; Creation Research, Science Education Foundation; Institute for Creation Research; The Creation SuperLibrary and others. Some publish peer-reviewed journals, such as the Creation Research Society's CRS Journal and the Journal of Creation by Creation Ministries International (The Australian arm of Answers in Genesis).Answer While it is true that many "scientists" disagree with evolution in favor of creationism, that number drops significantly when you consider only those who study nature or life, and is almost non-existent when you consider only those with expertise in fields like biology, paleontology, geology or astronomy - the above list may seem impressive, but it is out of well over a hundred thousand PhD scientists alive today. Now it's also important to note that many scientists believe in some sort of god or creator, but are not creationists. Creationism generally refers to strict 6-day creation fundamentalism or the movement to teach that there is a god in science classes in public schools. About 60% of scientists believe in a personal god, many believe this god created life indirectly, which can be considered a different sort of creationism. Meanwhile about 99.85% of earth and life scientists (those same scientists who mostly believe in a personal god) accept evolution as well.Answer Yes, quite a few actually. Many scientists and researchers have come to support the creation theory because as they study 'Creation -vs- Evolution' they have found that there are more 'holes' in the evolution theory than there are in 'Creation'.Both Creationism and Evolution start with presuppositions. Evolution starts with the presupposition that God, if He exists, played no part in the development of species, but that they developed by macro-evolution or chance mutations that resulted in benefit to the organisms; Creationism presumes that He created all species, and that there are minor adaptions which occur naturally, called micro-evolution.
