We are excited to invite you to attend the 2024 CRS Conference. The conference will be held at the Ark Encounter, Williamstown, KY July 25-27, 2024. We are unable to refund registration fees after June 1, 2024.
Admission to the Ark Encounter or the Creation Museum is NOT included in your registration to the conference.
About The Conference
The purpose of the Creation Research Society’s Conference is to provide a forum for our members 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 on 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 As such, these abstracts are not peer-reviewed and receive only limited editing.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.
The conference also holds the Henry Morris Memorial Lecture (HMML) which is free and open to the public. Each year the HMML has been presented by a creationist who worked with Henry Morris. Over the years many prominent creationists such as John Whitmore, Duane Gish, Don DeYoung, Steve Austin, and Russell Humphreys have given the lecture. This year we are honored to announce that Ken Ham will be giving the Henry Morris Memorial Lecture.
Dr. Danny Faulkner will be leading a hike to the Red River Gorge on Sunday July 28. There are limited spaces, so sign up early. It will be a 5-6 mile moderate hike, but you will need to be prepared to walk. Bring a broad brim hat, hiking boots, water bottle, tick spray and suntan lotion. Breakfast and lunch will be provided to eat on the hike. This field trip has limited seating so please sign up early.
This year, CRS will also host several pre-conference workshops. These workshops will serve as a discussion group for people with a basic knowledge of the respective topics. As such, the workshops are not intended as a seminar or teaching session. Rather, attendees of these workshops should come prepared to provide input and ideas that will help advance the creation model within the respective topics of each workshop. These workshops will be held from 9 am – 4 pm, Thursday, July 25. Participation in these workshops is free with a paid CRS Conference registration.
