Andrew A. Snelling, is a creationist geologist. He has a Ph.D. in geology from the University of Sydney and has worked as a consulting geologist. He was, for a decade, the geology spokesman for the Creation Science Foundation, the coordinating center for creationism in Australia.


In 2007 he was employed by Answers in Genesis as their first full-time PhD in the field of geology as a creationist scientist.

On January 9, 2008, the first article of Answers in Genesis’ new online technical journal, Answers Research Journal, described as a professional, peer-reviewed technical journal for the publication of interdisciplinary scientific and other relevant research from the perspective of the recent Creation and the global Flood within a biblical framework, was published with Snelling as editor-in-chief. Snelling was also one of the editors who took part in the RATE project.

Snelling has been published in standard geological publications estimating the age of geological specimens in billions of years, but has also written articles for creationist journals in which he supports a young-earth creationism viewpoint.
