Henry M. Morris, a hydraulics engineer widely regarded as the father of modern creationism theory whose fusion of scientific and biblical knowledge rekindled the anti-evolution movement more than 40 years ago, has died. He was 87.
Morris died Feb. 25 at Sharp Grossmont Hospital near San Diego after several strokes, said Larry Vardiman, chief operating officer of the Institute for Creation Research, in Santee, Calif., which Morris founded in 1970.
An author of more than 60 books, Morris laid an intellectual framework that attempted to scientifically explain the theory of divine creation. Morris' thinking also influenced the contemporary argument for intelligent design, the concept that a supreme designer had a hand in evolution.
Didn't I just post something about creationists? Oh yeah... Right here.
(OK, it's not exactly fresh, but it's the first I heard about it...)
