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 AD.

Ross' receiving his doctorate, which was publicized in a New York Times article, raised eyebrows in the liberal 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. As a group, liberals find 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]
