Brian Vermeer


I was born in 1968 and born again in 1978. In addition to my apologetic ministry, I have served in the church as a Sunday School teacher for over twenty years. I have also served as an usher, choir member and have sung in a southern gospel quartet. I have also taken two mission trips to Guatemala where I worked in a pharmacy of a village hospital.

Outside the church, I hold a BS in physics with a math minor from an accredited university and an Arkansas teaching certificate in Physics and Physical Science with an approval in Chemistry and Principles of Technology.

I taught high school and college level Physics and Chemistry courses in Arkansas Public Schools for 17 years. I have also taught high school courses in astronomy, biology, environmental science and study skills. I am a member of American Mensa, Ltd. and have twice passed the qualification test to appear on Jeopardy. In spite of this my intelligence has been questioned because I believe in a literal six-day creation.

I have been happily married to the same wonderful woman since 1996 and am the proud father of a little girl and caretaker of a hyperactive dachshund.

The highlight of the Scopes Monkey Trial was when Clarence Darrow called William Jennings Bryan up to the stand. Darrow questioned Bryan on his belief in the Bible. Bryan's answers actually did more harm than good as they seemed to make Bible believers seem ignorant and unsure even of their own beliefs. In this book, I give my opinions on how Bryan should have answered the questions.
