Welcome to CDI
Welcome to the Creation Data Institute. We created this website to show you the reasoned evidence for the Bible’s description of historical events regarding origins. Our goal is to present the biblical world view of origins in order that you are in the best possible position to determine the truth about this gift we call life.

Our modern day culture appears fixated on movie and television’s portrayal of Jurassic Park dinosaurs, vampires, aliens from outer space, and a universe billions of years old. The real question is how much of this is reality and how much is fantasy. We seem to easily accept a fictitious “Mother Nature”, but not a creator “God”. We find it hard to accept the idea of “absolute truth” and are easily led towards thinking that everything is simply relative. Relative to what…everything else? You deserve better explanations than that.
Many Christian churches and parents fail to equip Christian young people to defend their faith against an increasing tide of skepticism. Most Pastors, Priests and church leaders appear satisfied with teaching “what” we should believe, not “why” we can believe it.
Despite a vast array of new apologetic information made available in the past few decades, few churches grasp the significance of this information to the future of Christianity. A survey conducted in Naples Florida by the Creation Data Institute Inc. found that only 1 in 10 churches carried any significant biblical apologetic (reasons for believing) material in their libraries.
Radiometric Dating methods used in trying to justify billions of years of evolution are notoriously unreliable, inconsistent, and provide dramatically flawed results when the dates are actually known. These methods are based on unprovable and in some cases flawed assumptions. They are not the best evidence for the age dating.
Influenced by many modern day evolutionary scientists, a common worldview of the history of the earth and mankind goes something like this. 4.5 billion years ago the earth came into existence. More recently, about a million or two years ago mankind came into existence after a long period of biological evolution beginning in the primordial oceans.
Life on earth did not arise by spontaneous generation. The simplest of cells is not simple at all, but rather highly complex and marvelously designed…something that Darwin had not imagined.
The law of biogenesis states that life can only come from life, not nonliving chemicals. In its simplest form, all living things are composed of nonliving parts.
The foundation for Christian Truth is the Bible. The Bible is a book of history. It provides wisdom and instruction for living our daily lives. It guides us with confidence into the future. The Bible represents a lifelong search for truth that ends in eternity.
The truth is that we know instinctively that God exists because the evidence is all around us. Many allow themselves to be willingly deceived, perhaps because they think they will not be accountable to God. They are wrong. Whether we believe or not, we will ultimately be accountable to God.
Jesus came to earth to testify to the Truth – John 18:37. He came to atone for the sins of the world – 1John 2:2. He came to serve and give His life as a ransom for us – Matthew 20:28. He came to light our path, not to judge us – John 12:46-47. He came to fulfill the law and the prophets – Matthew 5:17.
