The Henry M. Morris Memorial Lecture is a lecture series to honor the contributions of the late Dr. Henry Morris. Dr. Morris was actively involved in the Creation Research Society, serving as an original board member, a past board president, and as an editor of the Creation Research Society Quarterly. To honor his contribution to both the Society and the modern creation movement, the Creation Research Society has held a memorial lecture at each of its recent annual scientific conferences. Previous speakers have been scientists that worked closely with Dr. Morris. These have included John Whitcomb, Duane Gish, and John Morris. In their presentations these speakers have shared both personal stories about Dr. Morris as well as accounts of their own careers and research.

This year’s lecturer will be Dr. Steven Austin, who worked for a number of years with Dr. Morris at the Institute for Creation Research. Dr. Austin’s research on the geology of Grand Canyon and Mt. St. Helens is widely known among creationists. He has written several books, including Footprints in the Ash, as well as many technical papers and conference presentations. The title of Dr. Austin’s talk will beShowing People Creation Science: Three Affirmations, Three Attitudes, Three Actions. This lecture will be held at 8:00 pm, Friday, July 29, in the field house on the Concordia University Ann Arbor Campus. This event is free to the public.
