The Greater Houston Creation Association (GHCA) is a nondenominational organization of Christians who take the Bible in its original manuscripts to be the actual inspired Word of God preserved by Him over time for our use as an unchanging source of truth. We find that the internal scriptural evidence overwhelmingly presents a young supernatural creation followed later by several world changing events of supernatural judgment including expulsion from the original paradise and “curse” of the ground, a cataclysmic global flood that radically altered much of Earth’s geology, and a “confusion” of language that forced the dispersion of people groups around the world. These events are as much a key to the past as observation of the present and they preclude the uniformitarian approach to understanding the distant past. We highly value the scientific method and the body of scientific knowledge based on observation and experimental testing of hypotheses (which is necessarily done in the present) but we reject the uniformitarian assumption in making inferences about the past.
The GHCA supports and encourages careful efforts to understand Earth history consistent with the events in Scripture, and we are pleased to share this growing body of knowledge with all who are interested. Over recent decades some important components of a possible creation science theory have been developed, and this body of knowledge is growing substantially. However, there is much work yet to be done before a relatively complete young earth scientific theory of world history encompassing astronomy, geology, and biology can be developed. It is clear that God commonly uses the physical processes He has ordained to govern the physical world to accomplish His purpose, but we also recognize that some events in history may have a purely supernatural cause. It is our desire to encourage and enable further research as time goes on, and we are happy to inform all who are interested of the present state of progress.
It is not the purpose of the GHCA to seek laws or public policy requirements to teach this Biblically based creation science in the public school curriculum. We are confident that with continued research and exposition of the evidence favoring young earth creation science, much of the mainstream scientific community will eventually recognize the truth of our approach. In the mean time the proper place for the exposition of our Biblically based philosophy and scientific theory includes a variety of publications, special interest groups, clubs, churches, and church schools.
