|Ten questions will be covered including, Is there life in space? Did an asteroid kill the dinosaurs? What would change on earth if there was no moon? Will the world end in 2012? The answers to such questions strongly support the creation worldview.|
|Scientists frequently look to nature for ideas on new products and solutions to problems. A classic example is Velcro, found in feathers and cockleburs. Several design examples will be presented from animals, plants, and nonliving objects. These examples, present since creation, defy evolutionary explanations.|
|A variety of evidences for the receding of the Floodwater off the continents will be provided. Geological evidence is first presented for differential vertical tectonics to drain the Floodwater. As the Floodwater first drains as wide currents, great erosion occurs with the formation of planation surfaces and the long transport of resistant rocks. As more and more land is exposed above the Floodwater, the water becomes more channelized forming another set of unique landforms. Water and wind gaps, pediments, and submarine canyons will be described. All these features are very difficult, if not impossible, to explain by the uniformitarian paradigm, providing strong evidence for the reality of the Genesis Flood.|
|Modern astronomy offers mankind a look at the cosmos never before seen. The size and beauty of astronomical bodies is a testimony to the magnificence that is our Father in heaven. This presentation aptly uses the scale of the cosmos to guide viewers to a better appreciation of the Glory of God as is revealed by the heavens. Drawing from images taken by space telescopes and spacecraft, we will tour the solar system, distant nebulae, and galaxies that testify of the creators power.|
|Darwinian thought has not only damaged our scientific knowledge of the world--it has also led to the moral decline in the West. Many leaders have tried to apply evolutionary science to moral issues, and the results have been devastating. Darwinian evolution denies that man was created in God's image and has led to the de-valuing of human life. It has played a significant role in the eugenics ("good genes") movement, ultimately leading to atrocities such as the holocaust, abortion, infanticide, and euthanasia. The influence of evolutionary thought on Planned Parenthood, Nazi Germany, the Soviet Union, and American culture will be examined.|
|Secular paleoanthropologists assert adamantly that humans are the descendants of ape-like ancestors. Darwin's seminal theory led naturalists inexorably to this conclusion, but the Bible clearly states that we were created distinct from the animals and in the image of God (Genesis 1:26-27 ). This presentation examines the evidence used to support human evolution, including Neanderthals and Australopithecines. Are these ancient hominids really missing links capable of substantiating human evolution or has the truth been distorted to support the materialistic evolutionary worldview?|
|Dan Brown, author of The DaVinci Code, claims that the church never believed Jesus to be God until the Council of Nicea in 325 ad. Elaine Pagels of Princeton University believes that the so-called Gnostic Gospels should be added to our Bibles, despite the fact that these works contradict the New Testament teachings about Jesus. Bart Ehrman argues that, due to all the variants in the copies, we don't really know what the original manuscripts of the New Testament actually said. And Dr. Robert Price doesn't even believe Jesus really existed--the early church borrowed from pagan myths to construct their own Jesus myth. Christians must be able to respond to these four attacks to show the world that the Jesus of the Bible is in fact the true Jesus of history.|
|The evidence for the global Genesis Flood is provided by all the hundreds of flood traditions from all over the world. Evidence for the Flood is found in sedimentary rocks that commonly cover huge distances and show little or no erosion between layers—unlike how mainstream geologist interpret the rocks based on small events over millions of years. Trillions of fossils in the sedimentary rocks provide powerful evidence for a global Flood, since fossilization today is rare (remember that mainstream scientists rely on present processes to explain the past). Moreover, the fossil record does not show evolution because of the gaps in the fossil record. Mollusks that make up 95% of fossils are predominantly closed shelled, strongly indicating that they were buried and fossilized rapidly all over the earth. This points to a global catastrophe and not small events over millions of years, the alternative mainstream view. Lastly, the talk delves into what we learned about the Flood from the eruption of Mount St. Helens.|
