Creationist Astrophysicist

Psalm 8:3
“When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained;”

Evolutionists would be foolish to question creation scientist Dr. Markus Blietz’s credentials as a legitimate scientist. Dr. Blietz earned his Ph.D. in astrophysics at the Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics and now works in the semiconductor industry in charge of helping researchers develop new ideas.

Creationist astrophysicist Dr. Markus BlietzIn an interview that was published in the book Busting Myths, he talks about black holes, comets, distant starlight, and most important, how he came to become a Christian and a creationist. “I read the gospel according to Matthew,” he said. “Almost immediately I understood that Jesus was a real, historical person, that He came to fulfill a mission and that I needed Him urgently.”

He also spoke out about evolution and world views. “Only belief in Jesus Christ can open our eyes and give us the correct view of our world,” he said, adding that “before I was a Christian, I never felt really content with the evolutionary world view, which I had adopted. It produced too many contradictions and left open too many questions. Only the truth in the Word of God is able to give a full, comprehensive answer to our basic questions of life and death.”

Dr. Blietz also had these words of advice for young people: “Study science to be able to better serve God.” Creation Moments thinks this is great advice, not just for young people but for everyone.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank You for raising up scientists who know biblical truth. I pray that You will encourage and protect them as they take a stand for Your truth in the midst of unbelieving colleagues. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
