Credentialed with a Church History Master’s Degree from Andrews University and a Juris Doctor from the University of Southern California’s Law Center, Johns practiced law as a career in California, Maryland, and the District of Columbia until partial retirement in the summer of 1992.
Best known in his legal career for articulate advocacy of religious freedom and free speech, the legal arguments in his 1967, non-fiction Dateline: Sunday, USA, drew national attention as an authoritative legal history targeting “Blue Law” conflict with the U.S. Constitution’s First Amendment.
A 1994 academic panel discussing the age of the earth attracted his attention to origins science. This led to his 18-year collection and analysis of scientific evidence that might support the unproven assumptions upon which conventional evolution theory built its chance hypothesis.
The bottom line conclusion presented in Three Days Before the Sun: the weight of evidence suggests that all life on earth, together with its supporting ecosystem, has been designed and shaped by the intelligence of the Master Designer who is the Author of science. Johns, an advocate of the scientific method, discounts “Evolution’s chance hypothesis as the fool’s gold of wishful thinking—the antithesis of true science.”
