Today we are really excited to present our listeners with this excellent interview with Dr. Andy McIntosh (and his Wikipedia page here) Dr. McIntosh earned his PhD in Aeronautics from Cranfield, and is now a retired professor from the University of Leeds in Leeds, West Yorkshire, England, where he continues as a visiting research professor in combustion theory and thermodynamics.
He is a Fellow of the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications, the Institute of Energy, the Institute of Physics and the Royal Aeronautical Society. He is a charted mathematician and engineer, and author of over 180 papers and articles, his research has been in combustion in fluids and solids. His research in biomimetics with the minute combustion chamber of the bombardier beetle has led to technological advances and earned him the 2010 Times Higher Education award for Outstanding Contribution to Innovation and Technology.
Dr. McIntosh is committed to intelligent design, young earth creation, and a literal understanding of “day” in Genesis both theologically and scientifically. Join us as we discuss questions like: As a scientist, why do you think its important for pastors, theologians, and church leaders to be 6-day, young earth creationists? What presuppositions are leading to reformed and evangelical churches abandoning the clear reading of the term “in the space of six days”? What is the relationship between the fact that the Bible is not a science book and the Bible being our starting point for doing science?
