Conference 2022

Conference Information

We are excited to invite you to attend the 2022 CRS Conference. The conference will be held on the campus of Liberty University (Lynchburg, VA)/ DeMoss Hall, Montview Ballroom (main meeting area) July 21-23, 2022. There are options for on-campus housing and meals which can be purchased through a link in the signup form below.  We are unable to refund registration fees after June 15, 2022

About The Conference

The purpose of the Creation Research Society’s Conference is to provide a forum for our member’s to present their latest research. We highly encourage members to present not only well developed and tested ideas and results, but to also present new and tentative ideas and even speculations. Some of these ideas may eventually mature and develop into fully established research, while others may never fully sprout. Either way, this conference provides an excellent opportunity for a “test drive.” As such, there are no proceedings nor recordings of any of the concurrent sessions. The conference also provides a wonderful opportunity for interaction among members of the Society, helping to promote collaborations and exchanges of ideas.

It should be understood that the CRS Conference is not a family conference with activities and entertainment for all ages. This is a science conference and presentations will be scientific or theological in nature – many may be a little technical. However, even attendees that do not understand all that was discussed during a presentation still find they have learned some interesting facts and leave the conference with new ideas and understanding.

Presentations during the concurrent sessions will be selected from a pool of abstracts that are submitted by various researchers who are interested in presenting their work (see submission instructions below). These abstracts are selected based upon originality, novelty, and general interest to the creation community. As such, these abstracts are not peer-reviewed and receive only limited editing. Attendees may find some of these presentations less tenable than others, but this is all in keeping with our goal of providing a forum for the free flow of ideas among fellow creationists.

Special Event!

Terry Falwell, cousin of Jerry Falwell Sr (founder of Liberty University) will be giving a tour of Liberty University campus for each day of the conference (July 22 and 23). Bob Hill, CRS President, thought that this was a good opportunity for spouses or family members to see LU.

Time/Location: Hancock Welcome Center: 9-11:30 am on July 22 and July 23, 2022

Things to see at LU: see Jerry Falwell Sr’s vision for a Christian University campus; visit the tallest building in Lynchburg (the School of Divinity building); shooting range, snowflex, and the Center for Engineering Research and Education (CERE), which hosts a lot of scientific equipment that can be used for Creation Science research.
