Soon the 2021 Origins Conference will be taking place in three physical locations, as well as online. All three Creation societies (Creation Theology Society, Creation Biology Society, and Creation Geology Society) will participate and welcome attendees in St. Louis MO, Dayton TN, and Santa Clarita CA starting at 4:00 PM PDT (7:00 PM EDT) on Wednesday, July 28.

During the conference a number of the attendees will present papers on a variety of topics and conduct a Q&A following each paper. A special Interdisciplinary Session will feature three papers and a panel discussion on The Fountains of the Great Deep and the Windows of the Heavens in the Genesis Flood Narrative.
Truett McConnell University (Cleveland, GA) will host and livestream The 2021 Paige and Dorothy Patterson Spring Lecture Series March 23–25. This year’s topic is “Creation: The Historical Adam.” Speakers include Drs. William Barrick, Jeremy Lyon, Kurt Wise, and Andrew Fabich.
The newly-minted Creation Theology Society (CTS) requests the honor of your contribution to the 2021 Origins Conference to be held July 28–31. Please see more details about the restructured meetings under Conferences. Any topics dealing with the text, philology, hermeneutics, theology, and apologetics of Genesis 1–11 and any other texts dealing with primeval history will be gladly accepted for peer review. Accepted conference papers may then be submitted to be reviewed for publication in the inaugural issue of the Journal of Creation Theology and Science (Series A). The special topic for this year’s annual Interdisciplinary Themed Session is “The Fountains of the Great Deep and the Windows of the Heavens in the Genesis Flood Narrative.” This interdisciplinary session of the conference will comprise two invited papers dealing with the biblical text, an invited paper providing a historical review of the geological/geophysical mechanisms proposed for initiating the Flood, and a panel discussion. The submission of papers related specifically to this topic are encouraged as we seek to move research forward at this year’s conference and in the journal.
The style of the papers must conform to the most recent edition of the Chicago Manual of Style. Submissions shall be made in Times New Roman 12 pt. font, double-spaced, and shall include an abstract (under 300 words), keywords, and bibliography. The new, extended deadline for submission is May 3, 2021. Questions should be directed to the executive editor of CTS at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to receiving your submissions.
