Creationists hear this type of argument all the time, “What have creationists done for science?”  I remember researching this a while back and coming across a list from www.creationinfo.com/list.htm.  I wanted to simply list it out here in this blog for you to see. Feel free to go to the article and to the rest of their site to see what is happening over there.

About the Author:

Eric Hovind grew up immersed in the world of apologetics and following college graduation in 1999, he began full-time ministry. President and Founder of Pensacola-based organization, Creation Today, Eric’s passion to reach people with the life-changing message of the Gospel has driven him to speak in five foreign countries and all fifty states. He lives in Pensacola, Florida with his wife Tanya and three children and remains excited about the tremendous opportunity to lead an apologetics ministry in the war against evolution and humanism.
