“For most of my academic career, I was a committed evolutionist and presented the theory of evolution to my students as an established fact. My university training and subsequent scientific endeavors had exposed me exclusively to the evolutionary paradigm and this had molded my thinking. It may well be asked: why the change of heart? In my religious experience I came to accept the Word of God as the most trustworthy book I have ever read.”
– Walter Veith, as cited in John F. Ashton’s work In Six Days – Why Fifty Scientists Choose to Believe in Creation (2001)
