The Origin of Life:

Creation or Cosmic Chance?


by Chris Ashcraft M.S., M.Ed., MTMS.
Apologetics Symposium
December
2nd, 2020
Cedar Park Church

Description:

The origin of life remains the most significant unexplained assertion of natural science. More than 150 years after Louis Pasteur disproved spontaneous generation, evolutionists continue to argue that it happened in the distance past. However, following exhaustive efforts, proponents can provide little supporting evidence and remain no closer to solving the riddle of how life began.

This presentation will summarize the case against a natural origin of life while highlighting some of the tremendous complexity found in the cell. Truly, evolution is without foundation.

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. 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.
