Walter Julius Veith born is a South African zoologist and a Seventh-day Adventist author and speaker known for his work in nutrition, creationism , and Biblical exegesis with the Amazing Discoveries media ministry and on their international television network found in North America on Galaxy Veith was professor of the zoology department at the University of Cape Town and taught in the medical bioscience department.
During this time, the department was awarded a Royal Society London grant for zoological research. After joining the Seventh-day Adventist Church, he rejected the theory of evolution in favor of creationism   and so had to give up teaching at the University of Cape Town. As a creationist,  he speaks internationally on this and other topics. His lectures, videos, and books promote creationist and Adventist beliefs and doctrines. These include an evangelical understanding of the Bible with a very strong commitment to the Textus Receptus and the King James Version of the Bible.
He also promotes a vegan diet and a belief in the imminent fulfillment of Biblical End Times and the return of Jesus Christ. Veith has written a number of books, including Diet and Health and The Genesis Conflict , which gives a biblical perspective and evidence claimed to support young earth creationism. Amazing Discoveries conducts seminars and streams by satellite, 24 hours a day, seven days a week on TV and satellite across North America and the world. Walter Veith was born in and grew up in a strict Catholic home.
His mother, a Protestant , died early from cancer. Veith was told by his religion teacher that because of his mother's non-Catholic beliefs, she would "languish forever and ever" in hell. In Walter Veith began studying zoology at the University of Stellenbosch , where he graduated with a Master of Science in zoology. A two-year postgraduate course at the University of Cape Town followed in His thesis was an Autoradiographic and Electron Microscopic study of embryonic nutrition in the teleost Clinus superciliosus.
He also attended lectures on zoology at the universities of Durban-Westville and Stellenbosch. His research concentrates on degenerative diseases caused by incorrect nutrition and particularly on diseases such as osteoporosis , cardiovascular diseases , and also on fertility. After the graduation Veith, became an adjunct professor at the University of Stellenbosch and until gave lectures in zoology. Early in the s, after his young son fell seriously ill and recovered, he and his wife returned to the Catholic faith.
But a few years later he developed doubts about Catholicism and, through the influence of a craftsman who renovated his kitchen, he and his wife joined the Adventist faith. In his first lectures as an adjunct professor, he had had a student who rejected what she called the lie of evolutionism and instead maintained the truth of the biblical creation story. He soundly put her in her place. Now, his new faith and his own Bible studies led him to adopt this belief, which brought him into conflict with what he was teaching.
Because of his lectures on the alleged scientific evidence for the biblical creation story he was asked to leave the University of Stellenbosch. He sold his house in Stellenbosch and accepted a position as associate professor at the University of the Western Cape in zoology. His serious concerns about the theory of evolution had been resolved by the proviso that he only needed to carry out research.
The university closed temporarily due to race riots. The following year Veith received a one-year contract at the University of Cape Town. His creationist lectures meant that his contract was not renewed, but he was hired in a research-only position at the University of the Western Cape.
At this time, Veith began to hold lectures outside university. In his lectures on nutrition he promoted Adventist values such as vegetarianism and fasting. His first book was published in under the title of Diet and Health. In he became a full professor with tenure and the head of the Department of Zoology, the content also dealt with the theory of evolution after five years. He used his position among other things to promote his belief in creationism and to deny the theory of evolution, finding a fellow believer in these views in his colleague Quincy Johnson.
In he published his results in The Genesis Conflict. After conflicts at the University of the Western Cape due to their unorthodox views, Walter Veith and Quincy Johnson left the department of zoology. Johnson joined the Department of Microbiology, while Veith joined the Department of Physiology, where he worked until With this change, their right to teach zoology was withdrawn. Since his retirement from teaching physiology, Veith has devoted his time to pastoring.
Veith teaches in his lectures the basic pillars of Adventism,  which he believes are an extension of the Reformation's founding principles including Sola Gracia, Sola Christos, Sola Scriptura—Grace alone, Christ alone, the Bible alone and a pillar of the Reformation: the identity of the Antichrist.
Veith has also presented lectures on diet, how it directly impacts numerous degenerative diseases including his findings of the negative effects caused by poor nutrition, such as osteoporosis, arthritis, and cancer. He also lectures on creationism. Veith holds that some of the new versions of the Bible coming out came from manuscripts with corruptions introduced by the Alexandrian text and varies and is less reliable than the Majority Text.
Because of his lecture War of the Bibles Veith was denied access to SDA churches in Germany for a time but was reinstated in A periodical recommended that Veith "revise from scratch future comments on this topic to be balanced, fair and serious or to dispense with them". Spectrum magazine, an independent periodical focusing on Adventism, refers to Walter Veith as the leading conspiratory voice within Adventism. Without specifically naming Veith, the church's official paper, the Adventist Review, has addressed Veith's conspiracy theories.
The leadership of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Germany, Austria and Switzerland decided on 9 November that these statements were anti-Semitic and discriminatory. The church leaders took the view that they were "very close to criminal trivialization of the Nazi reign of terror".
However, various of the German Seventh-day Adventist groups are getting around this ban by inviting Walter Veith into larger, independent event halls. Amazing Discoveries and Walter Veith replied that the presentation was not meant to be anti-Semitic in any way,  and they distanced themselves from anti-Semitism and racism. Veith blamed the accusation of anti-Semitism on "linguistic inadequacy", because German is a foreign language for him, adding that in Germany there is a "hypersensitivity" to statements about the persecution of the Jews.

Veith is to appreciate its fundamental views and especially in his scientific lectures, as are his remarks on the subject of Bible translations and Textus Receptus regrettably one-sided, unbalanced, scientifically dubious and lead to unnecessary uncertainty.
