Jason Pratt: September 25, 2017

Blast-off on Mission 17-24 of It's NOT Rocket Science with Jason Pratt. We've been examining Christian apologetics and in particular the challenge that skeptics issue when there is a lack of evidence for any particular person or event recorded in Scripture. With over 40,000 archeological findings that confirm the Bible it's a bit of a red herring (logical fallacy), additionally, the absence of evidence is not evidence of absence! But what about false religions or cults that have no evidence supporting their claims? They can rightly argue in the same manner that "the absence of evidence is not evidence of absence!" I overheard a co-worker discussing an early morning study of the Old Testament with high schoolers that he was leading. I asked where this study was to which he identified a nearby Mormon "church". As it turns out I am directly related to 2 of the 12 apostles or witnesses of Joseph Smith; Parley Pratt and Orson Pratt. With this week's experience as context we'll lift-off for Galatians 1:3-10 and discuss the implications of these verses along with Matthew 22:37-40 and how to begin addressing the Latter Day Saints.

Jason Pratt

Jason is an active duty officer in the U.S. Navy as an Aerospace 

Engineering Duty Officer who holds a Master of Aerospace 

Engineering degree from Georgia Tech University, is a member of 

the Navy’s Space Cadre and was a Navy selectee for astronaut 


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 twenty types of fixed wing, 

rotary wing and glider aircraft including: F-14 Tomcat, F/A-18F 

Super Hornet, F-15E Strike Eagle, and F-16D Fighting Falcon.

As an atheist Jason 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.

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 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.
