Scott grew up in Morgantown, WV and was interested in dinosaurs at a young age. He received a Bible at vacation bible school around the age of 10 and started reading it. He read up to the time of Abraham and saw all the generations from Adam to Abraham. After that he looked at the New Testament and saw all the generations from Adam to Jesus and realized that the “millions of years” didn’t fit. Learning about evolution theory and watching much of Carl Sagan’s cosmos he began to doubt the authenticity of the Bible. At the end of his Freshmen year of college at WVU he entered a period of depression, hopelessness, and thought that life was meaningless and that there was no God and therefore no purpose to life. He rejected the Bible and went down a path of ungodly living. He managed to finish his degree in aerospace engineering and start his engineering career. It wasn’t until he met his wife that he was reintroduced to Jesus Christ and the message of salvation. He eventually put his trust in Christ in the summer of 1996. In the winter of 1999 Scott attended a creation/evolution video seminar at lunch while working at Rolls-Royce in Indianapolis. It changed his life and strengthened his faith. After attending an Answers In Genesis family camp in 2001 Scott was inspired to build a scale model of Noah’s Ark with a friend Mike Bridgewater. Thus began the creation ministry that eventually led to Restoring Genesis Ministries.
