Dr. Sarfati was born in Ararat, Australia in 1964. He
moved to New Zealand as a child. He obtained a
B.Sc. (Hons.) and then a Ph.D., both in Chemistry.
He has co-authored papers in mainstream scientific
journals, including a paper on high-temperature su-
perconductors published in Nature when he was
only 22 years old. A Christian since 1984, he has
long been interested in apologetics, the defense of
the faith, and was a co-founder of the Wellington
Christian Apologetics Society (New Zealand). Cre-
ation vs evolution is of course a vital subject to him,
because of the ramifications for the doctrines of
Creation, the Fall which brought death into the
world, and their links to the doctrines of the Incarna-
tion, Atonement and Bodily Resurrection of the
God-man Jesus Christ. In August 1996, he re-
turned to Australia to take up his current position
with CMl in Brisbane. In this capacity, he is co-
editor of Creation magazine, and also writes and
reviews articles for Journal of Creation, CMI’s in-
depth peer-reviewed publication, as well as contri-
buting to CMI’s CreationOnTheWeb website.
