About

Hi there. I’m Geoff, and I defend and promote the truth of Christianity and the Bible. This blog is about showing that the Bible is true from start to finish.

valour

/ˈvælə/

noun

1. courage or bravery, esp in battle

I have a degree in philosophy and a degree in Genetics and evolution.

I completed honours in quantitative genetics with a Dean’s commendation and I’m currently a PhD student studying human quantitative genetics.

I run computational analyses on large datasets of human genomes and samples. I am trying to understand the influence of genetics on human characteristics.

It involves a lot of math and statistics, but I don’t have to wear a lab coat, so I like it.

I have also been reading and thinking about many topics in Christianity, apologetics (especially creationism) and all things related for many years.

If you’re a Christian, then this blog will help you understand that the Bible is objectively true, and there are very good reasons for believing in it. This is important because when you can understand and explain the truth of the Bible with confidence, it will empower you to boldly share it with those who need to hear its message.

I write about Christianity, apologetics, creation, science, Christian history and anything else that I think is cool (in a nerdy kind of way) and will help strengthen your faith in Christ and trust in the Bible.

This blog takes very seriously the Biblical command that we are to:

honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you
1 Peter 3:15 – via Bible Gateway

So please, take a look around and enjoy. Remember guys, God is real and the Bible is true and you don’t have to be afraid to tell people about it!

Also…

I have a wife and three children.

Despite my fascination with tossing them, squealing with glee, into the air and catching them, I live in constant and irrational fear for their safety.

I could not do what I do without my wife. She’s a rock. She’s strong, intelligent and supportive of any and all of my harebrained pipe dreams, like being a work-from-home writer and internet celebrity with hordes of adoring fans.

I’m a patchwork of inconsistent and contradictory likes and hobbies including being a half-hearted gym junkie, an awkward and introverted programmer and book-worm, beginner snowboarder, fantasy and sci-fi fan, and a strident critic of social media, especially FaceBook.

I also enjoy a good heated conversation amongst friends.

My Faith…

I believe the Bible is true from the first verse to the last, inerrant in its original form and that it has been reliably preserved through time and various translations so that, whilst not perfectly accurate today, is still correct, especially on those crucial doctrinal points necessary for salvation, and a sufficient understanding of God’s character, earth’s history etc.

I believe that it was perfectly accurate and correct at the time of writing, being directly inspired by the Holy Spirit.

I’m a conservative Christian in almost every sense of the word. I’m practically Medieval.

  • Biblical creationist
  • Pro life
  • Pro traditional marriage
  • Trinitarian
  • Cessationist
  • I fully acknowledge, God’s total sovereignty, and human responsibility and free-will
