Marcus S. Ross is a Young Earth Creationist (YEC) who was awarded a Ph.D. in geology by the University of Rhode Island in December 2006.

Ross' receiving his doctorate, which was publicized in a New York Times article, raised eyebrows in the academic community.[Citation Needed]

However, it should be noted that his Ph.D., on the subject of mososaur distribution, did not contain any Creationist science, and was written on the assumption that evolution is a fact and the earth is billions of years old. Many people found it difficult to understand why someone who openly believes that the earth is less than 10,000 years old would write a thesis on the assumption that it is billions of years old.[1]
