Dean H. Kenyon received a Bachelor of Science in Physics from the University of Chicago, and a Ph.D. in Biophysics from Stanford University, as well as being a National Science Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow in Chemical Biodynamics at the University of California at Berkeley, a Research Associate at NASA-Ames Research Center, and a Visiting Scholar at Trinity College, Oxford University. He is currently Professor Emeritus of Biology at San Francisco State University. He was also on the Editorial Advisory Board of a science journal called Origins and Design.
Kenyon is regarded as being the first person to write a major book on the origin of life in modern times. (Note by the author: This book was written in 1969) He coauthored the book Biochemical Predestination along with Gary Steinman. In the book they commented on the disparity between conditions created in laboratories and those that probable existed in the ancient geological setting. Kenyon was an evolutionist at the time.
Kenyon came to realize that if all this guidance was needed for such little results reached in the lab, that there must have been an intelligent designer. His coauthored work Of Pandas and People was designed to serve as a creationist supplement to Biology texts. In October 1992 Kenyon was suspended by San Francisco State University for allegedly teaching religion in his introductory biology course. Kenyon was later reinstated.
