Walter Veith Adventist Author and Speaker
After graduation, Walter became an adjunct educator at the University of Stellenbosch and till 1987 gave lectures in zoology. Early in the 1980s, after his young son fell seriously ill and recovered, he and his wife returned to the Catholic faith.
But a few years later Walter developed suspicions about Catholicism and, through the influence of a craftsman who refurbished his kitchen, he and his wife joined the Adventist faith.
In his first lectures as an adjunct educator, he had had a student who rejected what she called the lie of evolutionism and instead maintained the truth of the biblical creation story. He soundly put her in her place.
Now, his new faith and his own Bible studies led him to adopt this belief, which brought him into a dispute with what he was teaching. Because of his lectures on the alleged scientific evidence for the biblical creation story he was asked to leave the University of Stellenbosch.
Walter sold his home in Stellenbosch and accepted a position as an assistant educator at the University of the Western Cape in zoology. His serious interests in the theory of evolution had been resolved by the proviso that he only needed to carry out research.
The university closed temporarily due to race riots. This gave Walter the chance to travel to California and visit Ariel Roth, a creationist in charge of the Adventist Geoscience Research Institute, Loma Linda. He researched evidence of the biblical story of creation and developed a series of lectures to present his findings.
The following year Walter received a one-year contract at the University of Cape Town. His creationist lectures meant that his contract was not renewed, but he was hired in a research-only position at the University of the Western Cape.
At this time, Walter started to hold lectures outside the university. Initially, his talks were mainly to Adventist congregations in the United States, then in Canada, Australia, and Europe. In his lectures on nutrition, he promoted Adventist values such as vegetarianism and fasting. His first book was published in 1998 under the name Diet and Health.
In 1995 Walter became a full educator with occupation and the head of the Department of Zoology, the content also dealt with the theory of evolution after five years. He used his position among other things to promote his belief in creationism and to deny the theory of evolution, finding a fellow believer in these views in his colleague Quincy Johnson.
In 1997 Walter published his results in The Genesis Conflict. After conflicts at the University of the Western Cape due to their unorthodox views, Walter Veith and Quincy Johnson left the department of zoology.
Johnson joined the Department of Microbiology, while Walter joined the Department of Physiology, where he worked till 2003. With this change, their right to teach zoology was withdrawn. Since his retirement from teaching physiology, Walter has devoted his time to pastoring.
