Russ Miller is the only full time creation science speaker in Arizona and is now in his 18th year. His web site is: There is a full time creation scientist in Arizona - Dr. Kevin Anderson, who runs the Creation Research Society lab just north of Chino Valley, and can be reached at 928-636-1153. His web site is The difference being that a creation speaker is primarily a communicator of the science that supports the Biblical accounts of creation and the global flood, and a creation scientist is primarily doing research, writing and field work on these evidences (like digging up over 50 dinosaur bones and examining the soft tissue, red blood cells and DNA in them, showing that they are less than 1,000 years old.)

As well as speaking at churches, camps and conferences, Russ Miller shares this information on all day creation tours of the Grand Canyon, where he shows proof that the global flood created the Grand Canyon in only days, and not the millions of years, as we are told. He shows where the strata layers that have been deposited by the flood meets the creation rock, or where judgment meets creation as he likes to say.
