Description:

Geologists say there has been no global flood as described in the Bible, despite the existence of a monumental body of evidence. Should Christians accept such assertions from scientists who adhere rigidly to philosophical naturalism?

This presentation provides an introduction to geology and argues for an interpretation of the geological column that is naturally derived from the Biblical account. The worldviews that underlie secular interpretations of the Earth's crust will be examined, and several key events will be highlighted to illustrate geology's historic bias against catastrophism. We will see that features, such as strata and canyons, can form very rapidly, calling into question these long-standing examples of an old Earth.

About the Speaker:

Chris AshcraftChris Ashcraft is a Christian educator employed as high school science teacher at Cedar Park Christian Schools, and adjunct professor at Northwest University. 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.
