Silvestru was employed by Answers in Genesis, and stayed on the Creation Ministries International side during the split. Silvestru is a signatory of Creation Ministries International's list of scientists alive today who accept the biblical account of creation and participated in their movie The Voyage that Shook the World. Silvestru is a "Seminar Lecturer" at CMI Canada, writes for the Journal of Creation & Creation magazine, and has produced several DVDs.
Silvestru has written for the existence of the Roraima pollen paradox, which supposedly proves the existence of a young Earth, and against the validity of radiometric dating, which actually proves the existence of an old Earth.
“”‘Once I became a Christian,’ Emil says, ‘I knew I had to "tune up" my scientific knowledge with the Scriptures.’ [....] Although philosophically and ethically I accepted a literal Genesis from my conversion, at first I was unable to match it with my “technical” side.
E-mail discussions with qualified creationist geologists, creationist books, Creation magazine and especially the TJ helped him realise what he calls two ‘essential things’:
Silvestru writes of a time when he "was wading through a narrow gorge" and "massive boulders began falling":
“”PWith the walls less than 4 m [13 feet] apart, and me waist deep in water, there was very little chance I would survive. Yet, it happened. All this made me understand that it was unfair to attribute my survival to my good reflexes … as a scientist I had to accept that “somebody upstairs” loved me. I started attending my wife’s church regularly, and on one apparently ordinary evening in church, I accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as my Savior.
Indeed, scientists routinely accept supernatural guidance for their successes.
