Secular geologists say there has been no global flood as described in the Bible and are highly biased against catastrophic explanation of geologic features. But vast layers of rocks provide a monumental testimony, to any that will see, of this historic event and God's recent judgment of humankind.

This presentation will reveal this bias by taking a look at recent geologic interpretations of features that were later shown to be the result of catastrophic flooding. We will then examine Mount St. Helens, which stands as an iconic example of what catastrophic process are able to accomplish, showing that strata and canyons can form rapidly rather than over millions of years.

About the Speaker:

Chris AshcraftChris Ashcraft is a Christian educator employed as high school science teacher at Cedar Park Christian Schools. Chris has also worked in plant biotechnology. He was a research technician at the Cotton Fiber Production Laboratory at Texas Tech University, then at the Plant Transformation Facility at Oklahoma State University, and lastly was the Plant Transformation Specialist for EDEN Bioscience in Bothell Washington ..

He obtained a Bachelor of Science in biology from Wayland Baptist University in 1989, a Master of Science in biology from Texas Tech University in 1996, a Master of Education from the University of Washington in 2008, and a Master is Teaching Math and Science from Seattle Pacific University in 2012.

Chris moved from research science into the teaching profession to serve God in Christian education. His decision was motivated by the impact that secular science is having on people of faith. Today, close to 50% of Christian students lose their belief in God while attending secular schools. This tendency could be lessened if the Church was better equipped to defend the authority of Biblical teachings (1 Peter 3:15). To be prepared for these challenges, it is important that Churches provide regular educational programs on creation and other Bible apologetics.
