History

In 1972, when the society was founded, it was strictly founded on the revelation given in the Bible, and began publishing the journal, the "Folha Criacionista". In 2002, the "Folha Criacionista" was replaced by the magazine "Revista Criacionista". Publications were also launched aimed at elementary school students: "De Olho nas Origens 1" (Keeping an eye on origins 1) and "De Olho nas Origens 2" (Keeping an eye on origins 2), for students from first to fourth grade and fifth to eighth grade, respectively. In 2011 the society celebrated its 40th anniversary. At the time, the mathematician Orlando Rubem Ritter, pioneer of creationism in Brazil, was honored.
