After more than four decades of ministry, the Institute for Creation Research (ICR) remains the world leader in scientific research within the context of biblical creation. Founded in 1970 by Dr. Henry Morris, widely recognized as the Father of Modern Creation Science, ICR exists to conduct scientific research within the realms of origins and earth history. The ICR science staff has uncovered a wealth of evidence that confirms the biblical account, which is then used to educate the public through graduate and professional training programs, conferences and seminars across the nation, and through books, high-quality DVD series, radio broadcasts, and engaging media presentations.
