Phil Robinson gained his Bachelor of Education degree from Stranmillis University College in Religious Studies, with a subsidiary in Physical Education and has a Masters of Divinity degree from Union Theological College. While studying for his B.Ed., he had the opportunity to take part in the Erasmus student exchange programme which involved teaching and studying in Copenhagen for five months. He used his spare time to explore his Christian faith in a deeper way and to obtain answers to several questions in his thinking. In particular, although Phil was a convinced young earth creationist, he didn’t really understand the full implications of this nor how to properly defend the biblical account of origins.
Phil Robinson worked for CMI-UK as a full time speaker/writer from February to August 2009, principally as the UK’s ‘Darwin Film Coordinator’. He is married and now continues as an associate speaker/writer for CMI in a voluntary capacity.
