Spike Psarris worked for a number of years as an engineer in the U.S. military space program. He went into that career as an atheist and committed evolutionist, and left it as a creationist and a Christian—a transformation that happened in this order (to believing in creation first, and then to Christianity afterwards).
Atheists frequently claim that Christians believe in creation merely because the Bible requires them to do so. Supposedly, if Christians could look at science objectively (without being blinded by their faith), they would see all the evidence for the Big Bang, millions of years of biological evolution on Earth, and so on.
As Mr. Psarris points out, this claim is false. There are numerous people in the creation movement (including Spike) who became creationists first, because of the overwhelming evidence supporting the truth of the Bible—evidence that can be found throughout the sciences. Spike will be presenting some of this evidence during the Foundations of Truth conference.
Mr. Psarris is the writer and producer of the popular 3-part DVD series “What You Aren’t Being Told About Astronomy,” and speaks frequently on science, creation, and the Bible. He can be contacted through his website, CreationAstronomy.com.

Mr. Taylor was born in Ashton-under-Lyne, near Manchester in the North of England, in 1961. Trained as a musician, he eventually got interested in sciences in his later high school years, getting saved at the age of 15 in 1977. After about a year, Paul got a Saturday job in a Christian bookshop, where he came upon literature from a creationist organization in the UK. He was astonished that there were people around – even those with scientific qualifications – that did not believe the theory of evolution. The bookstore manager, who held a degree in science, explained these things to Paul. From that point on, he has written and spoken on the subjects of creation, evolution, Genesis and apologetics.
After obtaining a degree in Chemistry, and a teaching certificate from the University of Nottingham, Mr. Taylor became a high school science teacher. He worked successfully in this career for 18 years, rising through the ranks, eventually to become a Head of Science. Outside work, he was involved in his church, preaching, teaching and leading worship, as well as writing worship songs.
In 2000, Mr. Taylor left teaching to set up an ICT training business, training people mostly in Microsoft Office applications, and web development applications.
In 2005, Mr. Taylor was invited to join Answers in Genesis, and worked at their UK office for 6 years. Paul moved to the United States in 2011 to work for Creation Today, in Pensacola, Florida. Paul and his wife are now the Directors of the Mount St. Helens Creation Center, in Castle Rock, Washington – at Exit 49 off I-5. This is also the exit to the main tourist road leading to the volcano, Mount St. Helens. From this base, Paul continues to travel around the United States, speaking on creation, Genesis and apologetics. Paul and his wife Geraldene, have five children between them.
