Charles "Chuck" Missler is an author, evangelical Christian, Bible teacher, former businessman and US Air Force officer. He is the founder of the Koinonia House ministry based in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho.
Missler was for several years the chairman, the chief executive, and the largest shareholder of Western Digital. In 1983 he became the chairman and chief executive of Helionetics Inc., another technology company. After teaching for many years at Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa, Missler moved to Coeur d'Alene in 1992 and founded Koinonia House. Through this organization, Missler distributes a monthly newsletter, Bible study tapes, and a radio show, and speaks at conferences.
Missler is a prominent speaker on the subject of bible prophecy. Missler has had numerous programs aired on the Christian television station GOD TV, namely the DVD versions of his biblical studies "Learn the Bible in 24 Hours", "The Book of Revelation", "The Book of Genesis", and "The Book of Daniel". A Los Angeles Times article reported that Missler and co-author Hal Lindsey had plagiarized a portion of Miami University Professor Edwin Yamauchi's 1982 book Foes From the Northern Frontier in their own 1992 book The Magog Factor. This mistake has been acknowledged, book shipments to bookstores have been discontinued and all of the author's proceeds have been donated to a ministry.
Missler has also been accused of extensive plagiarism of New Age writer Michael Talbot's 1992 book The Holographic Universe in his 1999 book Cosmic Codes: Messages from the Edge of Eternity. Missler has since publicly apologized for this and said a correction will be inserted in all unsold copies and the book itself updated in subsequent printings.
A YouTube video in which Missler uses a jar of peanut butter to disprove evolution attracted media attention in 2007-2008. He was alluding to the impossibility of spontaneous generation, an issue that creationists usually regard as an essential part of the theory of evolution.
