The website of Answers in Genesis (AIG) reports: Creation Debater Dr. Duane Gish Passes Away. They say:
Dr. Duane T. Gish, one of the great defenders of the Bible’s accuracy and best-known for the 300-plus debates he conducted with evolutionists since the 1970s, passed away Tuesday in California at the age of 92. We will pay tribute to this great scientist and apologist later today on this website.
Here’s Wikipedia’s article on the man: Duane Gish. AIG also says:
Dr. Gish (PhD in biochemistry, U.C. Berkeley) was the Senior Vice-President Emeritus of ICR [the Institute for Creation Research] and the author of the creationist classic Evolution: The Fossils Say No. He was also a veteran of WWII. Dr. Gish was a dear friend to many at AiG, including the three co-founders who worked with him at ICR almost 20 years ago.
We checked the ICR website, but they don’t have anything posted about this. That will surely come.
Your Curmudgeon won’t have much to say about Gish — not at a time like this. He’ll be remembered as an influential creationist.
