John Woodmorappe is the pen name of a popular young earth creationist author who has published prolifically in mainstream and creationist journals. He has an M.A. in geology and a B.A. in biology, from a midwestern US state university and is a science educator by profession.
He is perhaps best known for his work in the field of Biblical flood geology, which he published under the assumed pseudonym. He has successfully pointed out the flaws of radiometric dating methods, and has provided ample evidence to support the feasibility of the Biblical narrative of Noah's Ark.
Pseudonyms or nom de plumes are taken by authors for a variety of reasons to conceal their identity. Given the anticreation sentiment that permeates the scientific and public school systems, it is not suprising that creationists would feel the need to protect themselves from reprisal.
