A California man who believes soundly in the biblical account of creationism is putting his money where his mouth is and offering up $10,000 to anyone who can disprove Genesis.

Joseph Mastropaolo says the rule is that naysayers must cite science to show Genesis is false, USA Today reports. It’s called the Literal Genesis Trial, and entry isn’t free. Participants have to offer up their own $10,000, with the winner taking all, USA Today says.

The false-true arguments will be heard before a judge, a bailiff and a court reporter.

All “evidence must be scientific, that is, objective, valid, reliable and calibrated,” Mr. Mastropaolo said, in the USA Today report. Evolutionists “are not stupid people. They are bright, but they are bright enough to know there is no scientific evidence they can give in a mini-trial.”

Mr. Mastropaolo has an advanced degree and has taught biomechanics and physiology, USA Today reports. He says his aim is to increase the quality of public debate over creationism versus science.
