Fossils: History in Contention
Secular geologists have rejected Biblical history and assert that
there has been no global flood as described in Genesis. But vast
quantities of fossils and sedimentary rock provide a monumental
testimony to this historical event and God's recent judgment. Is the
worldview of these geologists causing them to "deliberately ignore
that the world was deluged with water and perished" (2 Peter 3:3-6)?
This presentation provides the Biblical answer to the fossil record and an encouragement for Christians to trust in the Bible as authoritative on early Earth history. Numerous examples of fossils are provided that defy conventional explanation and interpretation in support of the theory of evolution. When examined, we can easily see that the fossils have been misinterpreted by naturalistic scientists and are much more consistent with catastrophic activity and a young Earth.
About the Speaker:
Chris Ashcraft is a Christian educator employed as high school science teacher at Cedar Park Christian Schools. Formerly, Chris was a biology research tech specialized in plant tissue culture, and genetic transformation technology. He was employed at the Cotton Fiber Production Laboratory at Texas Tech University and 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.
