RationalWiki's 2020 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2021.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

I especially disassociate myself from the blasphemous use of a profound Scriptural truth to promote a scientific and political lie.
—John D. Morris[1]

John D. Morris is a young Earth creationist and the current president of the Institute for Creation Research.[2] He is the son of the Institute's founder, Henry Morris.

Before he ascended to the throne previously occupied by his father he was the author of a number of hard-hitting articles published by the Institute, including What Can We Do About the Public Schools?,[3] What is the Connection Between Homosexuality and Evolution?,[4] and Are Plants Alive?.[5]


Apparently, he has several degress:[6][2]

  • B.S., Virginia Tech., Blacksburg, VA, 1969 (Civil Engineering)
  • M.S., University of Oklahoma, Norman, OK, 1977
  • Ph.D.. University of Oklahoma, Norman, OK, 1980 (Geological EngineeringWikipedia)

This must mean his arguments are correct because degrees automatically make someone correct.

Noah's Ark and the Flood[edit]

John Morris is very keen on Noah's Ark, having gone on at least 13 expeditions to Mt. Ararat to search for it.[1] All of these were, obviously, failures. Nevertheless, he considers himself an expert on the subject.
