Jobe and Jenna Dee Martin

Dr. Jobe Martin was originally a proponent of Darwinian Evolution. For the last twenty years, he has been actively involved in the issue of Divine Creation vs. Evolution. [1] He is a local to Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania. He attended Bucknell University and was a Biology Major. He graduated from the University of Pittsburgh Dental School in 1966. Entering into his own private dental practice, he began working at NASA in Houston, Texas. In 1971, Dr. Martin and his family moved to Dallas, having accepted a teaching position at Baylor College of Dentistry. [2]

While teaching at Baylor College, some of his students challenged him to find credible proof that the Theory of Evolution was accurate in its explanation of the origin of the earth and its organisms. While researching the subject, he came across many inconsistencies in the theory, concerning creatures that could not have survived gradual evolution over millions of years, especially the Bombardier Beetle. You can learn more about his research of this beetle and other such animals from a video series that he produced called Incredible Creatures that Defy Evolution.

These personal discoveries caused Dr. Martin to doubt the Theory of Evolution and eventually turn completely from a steadfast Darwinian supporter to a Creationist with his own faith in Christ. In 1982 he enrolled in Dallas Theological Seminary. He earned a Masters of Theology, specializing in Systematic Theology in 1986. Also while in Dallas, he earned an Associates Degree in Business, from Eastfield Community College. Dr. Martin has written a book on his change in worldviews called The Evolution of a Creationist. [3]

Dr. Martin and his wife, Jenna Dee Martin conduct marriage counseling and hold seminars. They are active in Biblical Discipleship Ministries. [4] They have two daughters.
