Tom Zoutewelle has been dealing with the subject of origins for more than 40 years, both in the scientific and public domain. His current approach to this subject is that one should discuss scientific matters above all in science, while as a Christian he is concerned about our “core business” in that “through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen not made of things which do appear” (Hebrews 11 verse 1 – 3).
Noemí loves animals and strongly advocates the need of reconnecting with nature, spending time outdoors, and studying the natural world to learn more about God and ourselves. For her PhD research, she studied sea turtles in a remote nesting beach in South Honduras and she has also done behavioral research and educational work in zoos and aquaria.
In her current position for GRI at the EUD, Noemí travels across Europe teaching about Creation in Adventist churches, schools and universities. She develops educational activities and audiovisual materials to promote creation and care for nature, specially among children, teenagers and young people.
