Kurt Patrick Wise is a American young earth creationist with a background in paleontology. He studied at Harvard University under the famous evolutionist Stephen Jay Gould. From Harvard he received an M.A and Ph.D. in Geology. In addition to his education at Harvard he also earned a B.A. Geophysical Sciences degree. For seventeen years, Wise has been teaching at Bryan College in Tennessee, which was named after William Jennings Bryan of the Scopes Trial. Since May 2006 he has served as director of the Center for Theology and Science at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Kentucky. He also now serves as a Natural Science professor and the director of the Creation Research Center at Truett-McConnell College. Wise is perhaps best known for advancing the creation science discipline known as baraminology, which is the identification and study of the baramin or the created kinds. Noted atheist Richard Dawkins has referred to Wise (somewhat derisively) as an "Honest Creationist".

Darwinian theories of the universe, although mostly rejected by evangelical Christians, have still found their way into creation theology. A concept such as evolutionist creation has watered down much of the Bible's teaching in order to reconcile with popular tenants of science. The whole controversy swirls around the age of the universe. Dr. Kurt Wise, an associate professor of science and director of the Center for Origins Research and Education at Bryan College, shows from solid biblical teachings and scientific confirmation why young universe creation is correct. Beginning with God and His Word as the standard, Wise demonstrates how the biblical witness teaches that the age of the universe is not as old as Darwinian theory would contend. He also demonstrates how all issues raised by evolutionists can be answered not only by the Bible, but also by scientific data and research, nailing shut macroevolution's coffin.
