Henry Madison Morris (October 6, 1918 – February 25, 2006) was an American young Earth creationist, Christian apologist, and engineer. He is considered by many to be "the father of modern creation science. He is widely known for coauthoring The Genesis Flood with John C. Whitcomb in 1961.

Henry M. Morris (1918-2006) was one of the foremost biblical creationists of the late 20th century; he was also the author/coauthor of books such as The Genesis Flood the Biblical Record and Its Scientific Implications, The Scientific Case for Creation, Scientific Creationism, What Is Creation Science?, etc. He wrote in the Preface to this 1967 book, "The Christian school movement.

For decades, Henry Morris has been known as a defender of the Christian faith . It's an auspicious title for such a humble man, yet no one can deny that the grasp Morris has on science and faith issues is staggering. Dr. Morris created a thriving legacy that continues to equip many Christians to be able to defend the accuracy and authority of Scripture today. The new Henry Morris Study Bible and other resources that he developed remain essential sources of knowledge and understanding for believers.

Considered to be a classic work, The Long War Against God by the late Dr. Henry Morris, long an opponent of Christian Compromise with evolution, presents in riveting detail the very old plan to undermine God's Word. Morris began his serious study of the Bible in the 1930s and authoring books in the 1940s, but it was his landmark work, co-authored with Dr. John Whitcomb, titled The Genesis Flood in 1961 that influenced generations to begin discovering the fallacies of evolution and the biblical truth of creation.

DR. HENRY M. MORRIS (1918-2006) (. University of Minnesota) is widely recognized as the founder of the modern creation science movement. Morris wrote extensively on creation science and evolution, producing definitive works such as Some Call It Science, Biblical Creationism, Science and the Bible Scientific Creationism, and The Biblical Basis for Modern Science.

Utterly fascinating, The Modern Creation Trilogy is the definitive work on the subject, and a must for anyone interested in the study or origins. Find out what the Bible says about dinosaurs, Noah’s flood, and Christ’s firm acknowledgement of the importance of Genesis. This project covers all the bases, and as a beautifully bound set, makes the perfect gift for believers and even unbelievers

In Evolution & the Modern Christian (1967), Morris hoped to "open the minds and hearts of. .Morris' book Scientific Creationism (1974 and 1984), according to Herman Kirkpatrick, "is not very convincing evidence to support the recent creation of the earth".

In Evolution & the Modern Christian (1967), Morris hoped to "open the minds and hearts of young people to the true Biblical cosmology.

Henry M. Morris (1918-2006) was one of the foremost biblical creationists of the late 20th century; he was also the author/coauthor of books such as The Genesis Flood the Biblical Record and Its Scientific Implications, The Scientific Case for Creation, Scientific Creationism, What Is Creation Science?, etc. He wrote in the Preface to this 1967 book, "The Christian school movement ... should be supported by Christian people to the greatest extent possible... However, it is a painfully realistic fact that not more than a minute fraction of the world's youth... can ever be taught in a genuinely Christian and creationistic school system. We need urgently to reach the host of others with literature which will in some way open their minds and hearts to the true Biblical cosmology. This small book has been prepared with this one need in mind." Here are some additional quotations from the book: "Mutations definitely do occur, and they are definitely hereditable, entering into the genetic pool with other Mendelian characteristics. And it does seem reasonable that, if a particular mutant character turns out to be favorable and to make its possessor better qualified to compete in the surrounding environment in the struggle for existence, it would have a real 'survival value.' Perhaps, then, over the ages an accumulation of such favorable mutations preserved by natural selection might result in a new, better-equipped 'kind' of organism." (Pg. 27) "As a matter of fact, it is quite reasonable to say that some---perhaps all---of the radiogenic lead was in the mineral right from the beginning. If one admits the necessity---or even the possibility---of real CREATION, then the creation of all substances in equilibrium in a fully-completed, functioning universe is completely plausible." (Pg. 52) "It seems not at all unlikely, therefore, that certain amounts of lead (in all its isotopes), as well as other elements in the present decay chain.

Scientist Henry M. Morris, Ph.D., does not subscribe to theistic evolution, progressive creation, the day-age theory, or the gap theory (the supposed time gap between Genesis 1.1 and 1.2.) "We have acknowledged that most scientists believe in evolution, but that is not at all the same as saying that science teaches evolution...Science...means knowledge--not theories, opinions, beliefs, or philosophies, but actual, verified, factual, certain knowledge--the organized body of observed data and experimentally verified processes and their relationships" (p. 41.) Now that's definition!--clinical definition. Lots of exactness in Evolution and the Modern Christian. "Why are there many varieties of dogs and many varieties of cats, but no animals intermediate between cats and dogs?" (p. 23.) The observed data show that there are gaps that evolution cannot account for. How come there are no intermediates? "All the `information' for the development of each particular organism was already `encoded' in the D.N.A. of its parent. They must reproduce `after their kinds'" (p. 25.) "New varieties can be established, but not new kinds" (p. 26.) Mutations happen. Can an accumulation of favorable mutations not be the bridge between kinds? "Even evolutionary geneticists readily acknowledge that at least 99.9 per cent of all observed mutations are harmful [to themselves]" (p. 28.) What we observe in biology today is in line with what we observe in history in the geological column. In there, "still no organisms intermediate between the protozoa and metazoa, between the dog and the cat, between the horse and elephant...There are literally an innumerable host of `missing links' in the record" (p.33.) There are great gaps between all the basic kinds. That may be the simplest way to show the want of evolution: in the gaps.

Mr. Morris goes on to point us to the evidence of catastrophe in the column, which is the only reasonable answer to why fossils exist to be examined. "Rapid burial is necessary if a fossil is to be formed; otherwise the organism would quickly disappear because of scavengers or decay" (p. 38.) Historical sources, biblical and otherwise, point us to the catastrophic flood, which the Apostle Peter and Jesus Christ affirmed (p. 39.) In short, the various data direct us to the biblical record of creation, not to evolution. Other probabilities for creation include those two basic Laws of thermodynamics, of conservation and entropy. These laws point to Genesis. The theory of evolution persists in the face of so much evidence against it because the only real alternative is this creation account, and what that implies. "It is true that most scientists reject Biblical Christianity--just as do most lawyers and most plumbers and most ditch-diggers. This is not because of their science but because of...the demands of the Word of God" (p. 41.) Here is why the question of evolution is vital to the Christian: "One cannot legitimately question the historicity of the creation record without questioning the judgment or veracity of the Apostles or of Christ Himself" (p. 57.)

About this ubiquitous behemoth called Evolution, here is an honest look at the data, a good summary of the problem, and a bold spokesman for the solution.

(Pg. 52)
"It seems not at all unlikely, therefore, that certain amounts of lead (in all its isotopes), as well as other elements in the present decay chain, could have been associated with the uranium from the very time of its formation. Especially this is true if we recognize the necessity of a real creation of the elements in the beginning." (Pg. 53)
"The Bible, of course, not only is completely silent with respect to any such pre-Adamite men, but explicitly emphasizes that Adam was the FIRST man." (1 Cor 15:45)
