In Sept. 1993, I picked up the undated ICR pamplet _Introducing ICR,
A worldwide outreach to families and nations_. The Institure for
Creation Research address is PO box 2667, El Cajon, CA 92021, phone
619-448-0900. The pamplet has brief descriptions of the "ICR's many
vital outreaches". They include graduate school, research, seminars,
'good science' programs, books/tapes/videos, radio broadcasts, museum
of creation and earth history, ICR tours, free publications,
stewardship and trust services, and international outreach. The
following sections are from the pamplet:
Because American society - especially our educational system - is
dominated by evolutionary humanism.
Because the harmful consequences of evolutionary thinking on families
and society (abortion, promiscuity, drug abuse, homosexuality, and
many others) are evident all around us.
Because this rebellion against God and His laws stems from unbelieving
scientists and educators undermining the foundational truth of
We believe God has raised up ICR to spearhead Biblical Christianity's
defense against the godless dogma of evolutionary humanism. Only by
showing the scientific bankruptcy of evolution, while exalting Christ
and the Bible, will Christions be successful in 'the pulling down of
strongholds; casting down imaginations, and every high thing that
exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into
captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ' (2 Corinthians
What we believe
All ICR staff members adhere to a Statement of Faith in the form of
two documents: 'Tenets of Scientific Creationism' and 'Tenets of
Biblical Creationism,' key features of which are summarized below:
All things were supernaturally created by the Triune God - Father,
Son, and Holy Spirit.
The Bible is the divinely inspired revelation of the Creator,
completely free from error of any sort - scientifically, historically,
morally, and theologically.
Each basic type of plant and animal was specifically created 'after
its kind' by God. None came from non-living substances, nor did any
develop from some other plant or animal.
The first human beings, Adam and Eve, were specially created by God;
all other men and women are their descendants. In Adam, mankind was
given 'dominion' over all other created organisms and over the earth
The creation of all things occured in six literal days. All things
were originally 'very good.' God's natural laws now act to conserve
The entrance of sin into the world, through Adam, brought God's curse
on all creation, culminating in death and separation from God. There
was no suffering or death in the world prior to this.
The Biblical record of the primeval world is fully historical,
including recent creation of all things, the fall, the curse, the
flood, and the dispersion of nations at Babel. Evidences in the
earth's crust and in human legends are to be interpreted in light
of this *true* history.
The separation of man from God can only be remedied by the Creator
Himself, who became man in the person of Jesus Christ - virgin-born
and sinless - so that His substitutionary death and bodily
resurrection could pay the price of man's redemption.
God will one day restore creation to its original state, by the
removal of His curse and restoration of all things. This will take
place following His personal, bodily return to earth.
You can help
As a missionary organization, ICR is funded by God's people. The
majority of its income is provided by individual donors who desire
to proclaim God's truth about origins. We invite you to join this
key group of supporters.
Your gifts can be designated for research, the graduate school,
seminars, or any specific part of the ICR ministry. All others will
be used where most needed. We pledge to use them wisely and with
