Christian Geologist Files Lawsuit for Discrimination of Religious Beliefs

Young Earth geologist and Christian Dr. Andrew Snelling recently filed a lawsuit with the help of ADF against the U.S. Department of the Interior, the National Park Service, and Grand Canyon National Park for discrimination of his religious beliefs.

Snelling, who is employed by Answers in Genesis and is featured in the pro-Creationist documentary Is Genesis History? asserts that the park has twice denied him access to rock samples for his research due to his belief that God created the canyon through the aftermath of the biblical flood.

“We expect debate about what the evidence means, but the park shouldn’t prevent us from collecting data just like other scientists. I am merely asking for equal treatment by the government,” says Snelling.
