Geology and the Clash Of Worldviews


 October 11th, 2017
Multimedia Presentation by
Chris Ashcraft

Apologetics Symposium
Cedar Park Church

Description:

Modern geologists claim there has never been a global flood as described in the Bible. Should Christians accept such assertions from scientists who adhere rigidly to philosophical naturalism? We will see that their bias against catastrophism in recent years has caused erroneous interpretations of obvious geologic features.

This presentation provides an introduction to Biblical-based geology, and a review of the monumental body of evidence that supports a historical flood as described in Genesis 6-9. Several important examples are provided that show how strata can form rapidly, rather than over millions of years, calling into question these long-standing examples of an old Earth. When the fossil record is interpreted correctly, it provides a witness to God's judgement rather than evolution.

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.
