The Daylight Origins Society is a British Catholic Young Earth Creationist Organization.

The organization's stated purpose is to inform Catholics and others of the "scientific evidence" supporting recent creation as well as highlight teachings from Church fathers, Popes, doctors, saints and Church councils down the ages. The society believes that the true discoveries of science are in conformity with Catholic doctrines; in other words, they reject science they don't like.

Daylight Origins draws support primarily from conservative and reactionary Catholics.

The Daylight Origins Society was founded in 1977 by John G. Campbell as the Counter Evolution Group. Campbell launched a newsletter called Daylight, which ceased publication in the early 1980s, but the pseudojournal was relaunched in 1991.[1]

Members of the society occasionally work closely with the Kolbe Center for the Study of Creation, [2] an American Catholic ministry defending Church doctrines and science denial.[3]
