Jason Pratt is an active duty officer in the U.S. Navy as an Aerospace Engineering Duty Officer with the following credentials: Bachelors of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the Pennsylvania State University, Masters of Science in Aerospace Engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology, graduate of the United States Naval Test Pilot School, member of the Navy’s Space Cadre and  Navy selectee for astronaut candidacy in 2013.

As an active duty member of the Navy, Jason takes his oath of office seriously and also must give a disclaimer that the views he shares when speaking on behalf of The Anvil Ministry, the views expressed are entirely his own and do not reflect the views of the United States Navy or Federal Government.

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to understand the simplicity of the Gospel of saving grace in Jesus Christ, but Jason’s experience and knowledge does make him uniquely qualified to speak on both biblical and scientific matters.

As a Naval Flight Officer and a graduate of the United States Naval Test Pilot School, Jason has flown over thirty types of fixed wing, rotary wing and glider aircraft including: F-14 Tomcat, F/A-18F Super Hornet, F-15E Strike Eagle, F-16D Fighting Falcon, T-38 Talon, UH-1 Huey, B-25 Mitchell, and U-6A DeHavilland Beaver.


As a former and permanently backslidden atheist Jason had placed his hope in his knowledge and achievements, but when Christ saved him he found the freedom of new life that surpasses the thrill and excitement of any fighter jet he’s ever flown. His testimony is one of turning from his own abilities and confidence in himself, and putting his trust and faith in Jesus Christ alone and certainty of the written, revealed and living Word.

Jason received his undergraduate degree at Penn State University, where he met his wife Sherri. The Pratts have three children, and are currently stationed in southern California. Jason enjoys snow skiing, mountain biking/cycling, off-road/jeeping, and playing with his children.

Jason was a self proclaimed and devout atheist until the age of 26. He now devotes as much time as possible to the Lord’s service, by assisting the chaplains in his commands, volunteering at his church and speaking at churches and Christian conferences, encouraging believers to be informed by Scripture, bold in their faith and courageous in witnessing.

Jasons Most Requested Talks include:

A Rocket Scientist Debunks Evolution Series

Confessions of a Rocket Scientist (testimony of a backslidden atheist)

When I Consider Thy Heavens – Rocket Science for Kids

Truth or Lies? What is Biblical Discernment

  • Hi Jason, I have found your testimony intriguing and encouraging to me as a former atheist and new Christian. You seem to be a very strong in your conviction and this is a place where I would like to get to. I am a Psychology student and within my subject I have to content with much talk of evolution and the theory of brain development. One issue I really struggle with is hominids and other so called related but extinct species of ‘Homo’ such as Neanderthals. Scientists argue that they interbred with Humans or ‘Homo Sapiens’ as they term us. Of course this is not possible taking a Genesis based standpoint…but why are they saying that DNA proves that we have ‘Neanderthal genes’? I am struggling like crazy with issues like this and thought that you would be able to point me in the right direction. Thank you so much in advance and God bless.

    • Joanne,

      Great to hear from you and sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I have a talk called “The Evolution of the Evolution of Man”. In this talk I look only at data from secular science and primary source articles which cast significant doubt on the evolution of Homo Sapiens. The preponderance of evidence has proven to be either a hoax, or upon further investigation to be 100% either from the ape kind or human kind (such as Neanderthal). Even the famous Leakey’s have determined that many of their own early finds are in fact apes and not hominids or some other distant relative of man. You don’t read that in the headlines and you have to search for many of the retractions but they are there, often after the damage has already been done.

      Many of the other “hominids” are simply different varieties of humans. The evidence is so scant that some could simply be the remains of a human with some kind of genetic deformity (such as dwarfism, gigantism, some kind of lymphoma, etc.). We can look around today and see a great variety in the human species ranging in bone structure, skin color, height, limb length, etc. This is not evidence of evolution from one species into another but simply variation within our created kind coupled with the curse of sin upon this world. We read about this variation in Genesis as we see Noah’s sons (Shem, Ham and Japheth) spread across the land as the flood waters receded and ultimately gave rise to every people group we see today.

      I am working on getting my talk “The Evolution of the Evolution of Man” that I gave at a youth conference earlier this year turned into a DVD. It is still in post production at this point and I don’t have a timeframe for release. That’s the trouble with doing this part time right now as I am still full time in my Navy career. I will provide some more information for your review and will try to post my own article to address in more detail. I just visited the Denver Nature and Science Museum to collect more data and see how this “evolving” theory is presented at various museums such as the Smithsonian, etc. The theory is evolving because the data simply has not, does not and will not support microbes to man evolution but that won’t stop them from trying. That is not science, it is propaganda and a sinful desire to eradicate God.

      Let me know if any of this helps and I will provide more information from primary sources showing how shaky the theory is. Also, on the psychology front there is a danger with the field in general as every primary concept upon which psychology is founded is upon atheism. Men such as Freud, Skinner, Jung, etc. were all atheists and sought to replace the role of Scripture in informing people on the condition of their soul and the source of their anguish; namely sin. I like what the Scripture says on this topic in Hebrews 4:12: “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” Psychologists have sought to understand where soul and spirit begin and end with no success but God’s Word is able to pierce and divide them!

      Be encouraged and trust your Bible!

  • Hi Jason I feel like I know you after watching you on worldview weekend,I really enjoyed your talks about the truth of GODS word and true science. I also like how you use the scripture,not many pastors are really into the word of GOD like they should be,you put many of them to shame,with your biblical knowledge. Keep on studying there are more treasures in GODS word then we realize. GOD BLESS YOU. George

    • George,

      Great to hear from you. Sorry for the delay in responding, my site gets hammered with spam daily and your note was buried in the middle of it all. I appreciate the encouragement and pray I can encourage you to trust God and His Word and pray for the pastors out there who for one reason or another feel they need to submit to science and man’s wisdom rather than the Creator.

      Trust in the Lord with all your heart
      And do not lean on your own understanding.
      In all your ways acknowledge Him,
      And He will make your paths straight.
      Do not be wise in your own eyes;
      Fear the Lord and turn away from evil.
      Proverbs 3:5-7
