To encourage interest and participation in, Mensa, and to diseminate, discuss
and debate the science, scientific evidences, and philosophies of the Young

We intend to be an example that there are many intelligent people
out there who have good intelligent reasons to believe these things.
time, space, earth, and life was created with purpose, Ex Nihilo, by a Creator
named by name as Jesus Christ (John 1:1-6), in a literal six days, roughly
6,000 years ago, as documented in the book of Genesis in the Holy Bible.

the entire planet and destroyed all life that breathes, except for a scarce

Because the members are typically physically isolated from each
other, extra effort is made to make its members feel a part of a community
- a part of the SIG.
The internet is a crucial tool in fulfilling this goal.
We have the ICSSIG-net, there will be email newsletters with events and pertinent
info for members as well as the odd complimentary publication mailed to you.
We will sponsor on-line chats
with Creation speakers from around the world, and events such as fossil
digs or Creation exploration trips. We're open to suggestions!
Voting and contributing members
are a member of Mensa and agree with the statement of belief. Only
voting and contributing members can contribute to the publications of the
SIG, such as the newsletter or brainiac files.
Supporting members are those who
either are not a member of Mensa or cannot agree to the statement of belief.
These are individuals or groups who are interested in the SIG's events and
publications and as such, receive copies of whatever the voting members receive,
but cannot contribute to any of the publications (except by specific invitation).
Subscriptions are for those who
are not a member of Mensa, or don't want to be a member of the SIG, or have
an attitude of "I couldn't care less about Creation" to "Creationists are
a wacked-out lot", but for some strange reason want to receive copies of
Please note that while this is an international SIG, the language of correspondance
will be English. Effort will be made to accomodate correspondence in
other languages, but these resources are limited. It is also hoped that
the newsletters and other publications will have multi-lingual articles, in
the spirit of internationality.
SIG membership (voting or supporting)
currently is FREE. Currently the prez will foot the bills until
such time as the group has grown to an unmanagable (or unaffordable) size
at which point the group will discuss where we're going and what it will cost.
SIG e-membership (voting or supporting) is currently FREE.
Obviously you will need an active email address for this type of membership.
do I join?
You can start by emailing
the prez (that's Ian Juby, the founder of the SIG), and telling
him what kind of membership or subscription you're interested in, and he'll
fill you in on the details!
