Dr Jonathan Sarfati
B.Sc. (Hons.), Ph.D., F.M.

In North America, at least, scientific creationists who have technical training are quite frequently engineers. The non-engineers who have been taught some of the things that scientists have found out, or who have themselves, on occasion, played the game of science, are usually knowledgeable only in one of the non-biological and "non-historical" sciences. Very few have had their primary technical training in biology, and I know of none who have actually conducted "hands-on" scientific studies of specimens in the fields of plant and animal classification, biogeography, or paleontology. Without exception, every single paleontologist, taxonomist, ecologist, biogeographer, comparative anatomist, botanist, mammalogist, ornithologist, herpetologist, ichthyologist, entomologist, and other invertebrate zoologist that I have ever met (and I have met and talked to hundreds, if not thousands) has been utterly convinced that the scientific evidence supports unequivocally and overwhelmingly, an old earth, an old universe, and evolution.
--Ronald Pine, zoologist, Chicago Field Museum of Natural History (1984, CREATION/EVOLUTION XIV, p. 14.)

Dr Jonathan Sarfati, like all his creationist colleagues, is a propagandist.  (The word "propaganda" was the term adopted by the early Church to describe its method of spreading the faith).  The only difference is that the creationist version of "the faith" relies on lies and subterfuge.  It's often said, with good reason, that creationism is bad science and even worse religion.

Dr Jonathan Sarfati's biography, as published by
Answers in Genesis, tells us that he is "a research scientist and editorial consultant for the Creation Science Foundation [now Answers in Genesis] in Brisbane.[Australia]"

Dr Sarfati has degrees in chemistry but like most creationist writers he writes on almost every scientific discipline; you name it and he's more than likely written something in a vain effort to refute evolution.

His full biography can be found here.
