“Does Science Confirm Creation” by Dr. Heinz Lycklama – September 27th, 2013 @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
Sep 27 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Does Science Confirm Creation?

AFSC Meeting on September 27th – The first meeting of the Forum was held on Friday, September 27th at 7:00 PM at the Atonement Free Lutheran Church in Arlington, WA with more than 75 people in attendance. Dr. Heinz Lycklama spoke on the topic “Does Science Confirm Creation?” A description of the lecture follows.

The world characterizes the controversy between Creation and Evolution as a conflict between religion and science – it is actually a conflict between two different worldviews. Come and find out why. We show how the famous Lucy fossil was falsely made to look like a transitional fossil. What happened to Neanderthal? New find – Ardi?

When we look at scientific evidence in three different areas of science: 1) taxonomy, 2) origin of man, and 3) origin of life, we conclude that science supports Creation much better than Evolution. Come and find out how. There will be time for Q&A after the lecture.

Refreshments provided.


Dr. Heinz Lycklama earned a Ph. D. degree in Nuclear Physics from McMaster University in Heinz 4Canada and has worked in the telecommunications and computer software industries for over forty years. He has taught through many books of the Bible and has served as member and Chairman of various Missions Committees as well as Elder/Deacon Boards. Challenged in his Christian faith by what he was taught in university in the 1960’s, Heinz later developed a series of lectures on Creation vs. Evolution and Christian Apologetics over the years and presented the material in Sunday school classes, to college students, during church services, at Bible Schools, and other venues in Europe, Asia, Africa and North America. With his knowledge of the Bible and science, he has continued to develop and present new material in these subject areas. More on Dr. Lycklama & his lectures at www.heinzlycklama.com/messages. Public announcements of the meeting appeared in the local newspapers – the Everett Herald on September 21, the Marysville Globe on September 24, and the Arlington Times on September 25.

“The Wonders of the Cell” by Chris Ashcraft – October 25th, 2013 @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
Oct 25 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

AFSC Meeting on October 25th – The second meeting of the Forum was held on Friday, October 25th at 7:00 PM at the Atonement Free Lutheran Church in Arlington, WA with more than 160 people in attendance. Chris Ashcraft, a Christian Educator and Creation Scientist, spoke on the topic “Wonders of the Cell.” A description of the lecture follows.

Cell biology has revealed a microscopic world operating at a level of technological sophistication far beyond anything devised by man. This previously invisible aspect of the creation offers unmistakable evidence of intelligent design through innumerable examples of irreducible and specified complexity. Inside each and every organism reside bio-mechanical systems and molecular machines that Darwin and his contemporaries could never have imagined. Even today, much of what is happening inside cells is still not understood and yet evolutionists hold fast that these remarkable constructs developed without God.

These two contrasting views of the cell provide poignant illustration of how worldviews impact our interpretation of physical evidence. This presentation discusses the cell as it relates to these opposing views and describes some of these important cellular features which offer testimony to the glory of the Creator.

Chris Ashcraft is a Christian educator, creation scientist, and speaker employed as high school science teacher at Cedar Park Christian Schools where he provides instruction in Biology, Chemistry, Human Anatomy and Physiology, and Life Science. [See ashcraft.nwcreation.net for more details.]

Chris speaks regularly at churches, Christian schools, teacher conventions, and creation organizations. He is the founder of the Northwest Creation Network ministry and theCreationWiki internet encyclopedia where he serves as senior administrator. He is also the organizer of the annual Seattle Creation Conference.

“The Heavens Declare the Glory of God” by Spike Psarris – November 22nd, 2013 @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
Nov 22 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

The Heavens Declare the Glory of God

AFSC Meeting on November 22nd – The third meeting of the Forum was held on Friday, November 22nd at 7:00 PM at the Atonement Free Lutheran Church in Arlington, WA with about 190 people in attendanceSpike Psarris, an engineer and physicist, spoke on the topic “Creation Astronomy.” The Email Announcement for the meeting can be found here. A description of the lecture follows.

We’ve all admired the beauty of the night sky. Secular astronomers claim that everything we see in it formed all by itself in a Big Bang event billions of years ago, with no Creator being involved. But the secular model fails to explain the origin of the heavenly bodies, nor the universe within which they exist.

In this presentation, full of beautiful photographs and videos from NASA and other sources, you’ll discover:

  • How planets, stars, and galaxies defy secular origins models
  • How the Universe is consistent with the Creation model instead
  • What the Universe reveals about our Creator

Join us as we explore the heavens, and see how they declare the glory of God.

The speaker, Spike Psarris, has a Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering and has done graduate work in Physics. He worked for a number of years as an engineer in the US military space program. He entered that program as an atheist and an evolutionist, and left it as a creationist and a Christian. Today he speaks on creation/evolution, especially as it relates to astronomy, and has published two DVDs on the subject. His website is www.CreationAstronomy.com.

Spike presented lectures on astronomy at the annual Seattle Creation Conference in 2013.

Public announcements of the meeting appeared in the local newspapers: the Everett Herald on November 18, the Marysville Globe on November 8, and the Arlington Times on November 8. The lecture was recorded and is available on the AFSC website here.

“Evolution Demolition” by Mark Champneys – December 27th, 2013 @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
Dec 27 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

AFSC Meeting on December 27th – The fourth meeting of the Forum was held on Friday, December 27th at 7:00 PM at the Atonement Free Lutheran Church in Arlington, WA. We showed the film on Evolution Demolition produced by Mark Champneys. A description of the film follows.

This documentary film premiered at Missions Fest Seattle 2012 and was produced by Mark Champneys with Saints Alive in Jesus, a counter-cult and apologetics ministry.The film demonstrates that Evolution is impossible according to the many good questions that brilliant evolutionists cannot answerCreation Ministries International (CMI) launched the Question Evolution campaign in 2012 to expose Evolution’s fatal weaknesses, and is building on this with the release of a book and documentary called Evolution’s Achilles’ Heels in early 2014. The Evolution Demolition film points out many of the fatal weaknesses in Evolution using terms and graphics easily understood by the layperson. The film challenges the viewer to ask the basic question – is this fact or speculation? It makes the distinction between micro-evolution and macro-evolution, information and random mutations, accident and purpose, design and chance, and simple and complex organisms to show that Evolution has neverbeen observed, is not occuring now, and indeed cannot happen.

Mark Champneys was born a 5th generation Mormon, the son of an LDS bishop. Now a believer, he is lay Evangelism Director with Saints Alive and a Fair Ministry Coordinator with Child Evangelism Fellowship. He is the producer of the film “Evolution Demolition,” maintains several evangelistic web sites, and as an Evangelism Explosion lay teacher-trainer, has trained missionaries for evangelism.

His website is at http://www.mormonsneedhope.com.

Attendees are encouraged to bring their favorite Christmas dessert to share and to visit the exhibits after the showing of the film.

Creation Geology: The Key to Unraveling Earth History – Patrick Nurre @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
Jan 24 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Creation Geology: The Key to Unraveling Earth History - Patrick Nurre @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church | Arlington | Washington | United States

AFSC Meeting on January 24  – The fifth meeting of the Forum was held on Friday, January 24 at 7:00 PM at the Atonement Free Lutheran Church in Arlington, WA with more than 160 people in attendance. Patrick Nurre, a geologist, spoke on Creation Geology: The Key To Unraveling Earth History. A description of the lecture follows.

If the world is truly billions of years old, we would expect to see this in the geologic record – the rocks, minerals and fossils.  Secular geologists tell us emphatically that the earth is billions of years old, having been sculpted by slow and gradual geologic processes, punctuated by brief, local catastrophes.  But is this view based on scientific facts or a philosophy framed by biases?  Come take a journey with us as we unravel this history and discover just how accurately the Book of Genesis explains the geology of the earth.  We will look at 1) how the rocks and minerals fit within a Genesis view, 2) the significance of fossils, and 3) how the global flood explains geologic formations around the world.


Patrick Nurre was trained in the secular view of geology. Over the past 40 years he has been actively involved in the Creation/Evolution issue in the field of geology. He has spoken to hundreds of college students, and is a popular speaker at many conventions and homeschool conferences. In 2005, Patrick created Northwest Treasures to provide opportunities to study geology from a Biblical perspective.  In the fall of 2012, he opened the Geology Learning Center, a geology museum/educational center located in Mountlake Terrace. Patrick leads field trips each year to many geological sites including his annual field trip to Yellowstone Park in August.

His web site is at www.northwestrockandfossil.com (Northwest Treasures).

Ken Ham vs. Bill Nye Debate @ Creation Museum - Online Debate

The location of this event is at YOUR COMPUTER. 🙂
http://debatelive.org/

BIOS:
William Sanford “Bill” Nye (born November 27, 1955), popularly known as Bill Nye the Science Guy, is an American science educator, comedian, television host, actor, writer, and scientist who began his career as a mechanical engineer at Boeing. He is best known as the host of the Disney/PBS children’s science show Bill Nye the Science Guy (1993–98) and for his many subsequent appearances in popular media as a science educator.

In the early 2000s, Nye assisted in the development of a small sundial that was included in the Mars Exploration Rover missions. Known as MarsDial, it included small colored panels to provide a basis for color calibration in addition to helping keep track of time. From 2005 to 2010 Nye was the vice president of The Planetary Society, an organization that advocates space science research and the exploration of other planets, particularly Mars. He became the organization’s second Executive Director in September 2010 when Louis Friedman stepped down.

Kenneth Alfred Ham (born 20 October 1951) is an Australian young-Earth creationist who advocates a literal interpretation of the Book of Genesis. He is the president of Answers in Genesis (AiG) and the Creation Museum.

Ham believes that there is a difference between facts themselves and their interpretation. “Creationists and evolutionists, Christians and non-Christians, all have the same evidence—the same facts. Think about it: we all have the same earth, the same fossil layers, the same animals and plants, the same stars—the facts are all the same. The difference is in the way we all interpret the facts. And why do we interpret facts differently? Because we start with different presuppositions; these are things that are assumed to be true without being able to prove them. These then become the basis for other conclusions. All reasoning is based on presuppositions (also called axioms). This becomes especially relevant when dealing with past events.”

The Expedition Christian Church

23601 52nd Ave. W, Mountlake Terrace

http://www.northwestrockandfossil.com/

Come at 6:30 pm for snacks, book table, geology museum

 

Description: Ever since Charles Lyell in the early 1800s, geologists have been misinterpreting the geologic formations.  Why?  We will discuss the real reasons and take a look at some of the bigger geologic “goofs”.  Then we will set about to discover other principles that are simply more in line with what we observe and with the historical Genesis account of creation and the global flood.
(See article on geologist Charles Lyell error on the Erosion rate of Niagara Falls

 

Bio: Patrick Nurre is from the beautiful state of Montana where he spent many of his Saturdays rock-hounding near the Big Horn River. This early interest led him to a lifelong study of the world of geology, and especially volcanoes. His experience has included extensive geology field study in Montana, Washington, Idaho, South Dakota, Utah, Oregon, Arizona, California, Wyoming, Kansas, Indiana, and Israel.  Patrick speaks at numerous homeschool and church conventions, conducts geology classes and leads a variety of geology field trips every year. His high point is an annual field trip to Yellowstone Park, where he helps families discover the Biblical geology in the park.  In 2005 Patrick started Northwest Treasures, a business devoted to producing a wide variety of fine geology specimen kits and curricula from a young earth perspective. Patrick has started and pastured churches since 1977.

Their 2014 Field trip to Yellowstone will start at the park on Sat. Aug 16 (5 nights)

ARTICLE

Summary: Charles Lyell fudged the data on the erosion rate on Niagara Falls to erroneously date its formation to 36,000 years ago, instead of 7,000 to 9,000 years ago.

Niagara Falls and the Bible by Larry Pierce, Sep. 1, 2000 http://www.answersingenesis.org/articles/cm/v22/n4/niagara-falls

Excerpt: “In 1841, [Charles Lyell] visited [Niagara Falls] …to determine the approximate age of the gorge that was excavated by the Niagara River. He noted that the gorge cut through an elevated tableland and extended about 7 miles (5,000 feet) from the Falls down to Queenston.

Niagara Falls

He observed that the walls of the gorge, 200–300 feet high, were basically composed of two layers: limestone on top, and shale beneath. He reasoned that the water and spray had scoured away the soft shale, leaving the overhanging ledge of hard limestone, which helped protect the shale from the full force of the falling water. Lyell was told that large chunks of limestone would regularly break off and fall into the gorge. He could see how cracks in the limestone would fill with water. As the water froze in winter it expanded, weakening the limestone, and causing spectacular sights when large chunks broke loose, crashing into the gorge Lyell ignored the reports from Mr. Blackwell that residents had observed the Falls recede by more than one metre (three feet) a year. At that rate the gorge would be less than 12,000 years old, Strangely, [Lyell] arrived at a reduced rate of 1 foot a year. This ‘conjecture’, as he called it, much better suited his purpose. Since the gorge was 35,000 feet long, he concluded that it must be 35,000 years old!…Lyell’s conclusion was wrong. Later …reports from 1842 to 1927 confirmed the high rate of erosion — 4 to 5 feet a year.  This rate places an upper limit of 7,000 to 9,000 years for the gorge.”

Dinosaurs: Monsters of the Ancient World - Bruce Barton @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church | Arlington | Washington | United States

AFSC Meeting on February 28th – The sixth meeting of the Forum will be held on Friday, February 28th at 7:00 PM at the Atonement Free Lutheran Church in Arlington, WA. Bruce BartonCAPS Vice-President, will speak on the topic “Dinosaurs: Monsters of The Ancient World.” A description of the lecture follows.

Evolutionary theory holds that dinosaurs dominated the earth during the Age of Reptiles, some 230 to 65 million years ago, before mammals evolved.  Then they were all killed off by some catastrophic event, generally supposed to have been an asteroid strike.  But mounting evidence indicates that although there was a cataclysmic event in the past, some dinosaurs survived.  Hundreds of clues from many different cultures around the world lend support to the contention that they were around much more recently than 65 million years ago. If this is true, serious questions are raised about dinosaur evolution and the evolutionary timescale.

This talk will introduce the subject of dinosaurs, and present evidence from paleontology, archaeology, legends, old chronicles, and the Bible that stories of ancient monsters were more than just myths.  This evidence will undergird the case for recent creation and the accuracy of the Bible.

The speaker, Bruce Barton, has degrees in meteorology and theology, with studies in engineering and graduate work in atmospheric sciences.  Mr. Barton was an instrumentation engineer in R&D for Weyerhaeuser Company until retirement.  He has a broad background as a teacher and speaker to groups of all ages in a wide range of subjects including science and technology, aviation, and Bible topics, particularly apologetics.  He has been speaking on the Creation – Evolution controversy for ten years.  Bruce also serves on the Board of Directors for the 7 Wonders Creation Museum of Mount St. Helens.

“Defeating Atheism with Science” by Spike Psarris – Apologetics Symposium @ Cedar Park Church - Bothell
Mar 20 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

The Northwest Creation Network organizes a monthly educational Apologetics Symposium at Cedar Park Church in Bothell WA.

The programs customarily occur on the 3rd Thursday evening, and feature presentations by speakers, scientists, and authors who are dedicated to defending the Bible.
The events are free and open to the public and suitable for ages 11 and up.

Many atheists claim that science disproves the Bible. Despite these claims, science is actually quite consistent with Scripture.

Christians often feel unequipped to defend their faith in this area — but this need not be so. Instead, any Christian can defend his or her faith against any scientific claim from an atheist, even without knowing the details of that particular claim. Why? Because science itself disproves atheism.

Atheism, when taken to its logical conclusion, denies the fundamental assumptions and requirements of science. Therefore, if science is valid, then atheism must be false.

In this presentation, engineer and former atheist Spike Psarris will present on “Defeating Atheism with Science,” showing why this is true. Join us as we discuss how Christians can defend their faith in all areas of science. After a brief discussion of specific evidence like fossils, radiometric dating, and intelligent design, we’ll dig deeper and see how science itself disproves atheism. Understanding a few fundamental ideas about science are all that’s necessary for any Christian to be well-equipped in this area.

About the Speaker:

Spike Psarris was previously an engineer in the United States’ military space program. He entered that program as an atheist and an evolutionist. He left it as a creationist and a Christian. He now speaks on creation and Christian apologetics, equipping believers to defend their faith and glorify their Creator.

Christianity Re-Defined by Mormonism – Mark Champneys @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
Mar 21 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Christianity Re-Defined by Mormonism - Mark Champneys @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church | Arlington | Washington | United States

AFSC Meeting on March 21st – The 7th meeting of the Forum will be held on Friday, March 21st at 7:00 PM at the Atonement Free Lutheran Church in Arlington, WA. Mark Champneys, Evangelism Director with Saints Alive in Tacoma, will speak on the topic “Christianity Re-Defined By Mormonism.” A description of the lecture follows.

Among the most devious strategies of the Enemy is word-play. Mormonism is diametrically opposed to Biblical Christianity, yet continues to be mistakenly considered a “Christian” church. Mark Champneys will give a presentation based on his experience from both sides–as a born-and-bred Mormon, and now a Christian evangelist, explaining the devious deception of re-defining virtually all Christian terminology.

Included will be the story of his journey out of Mormonism, a review of his dual glossary of religious terms, “Christianity Re-Defined By Mormanism,” and some “war stories” from 20 years of leading mission teams to Utah to witness to “his beloved people.” He’ll also bring you some tips on reaching your Mormon family and friends with the gospel.

The speaker, Mark Champneys, was born a 5th generation Mormon, the son of an LDS bishop. Now a believer, he is lay Evangelism Director with Saints Alive in Tacoma, is the King County Fair Ministry Coordinator for Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF), and he produced and directed the film “Evolution Demolition.” Mark has had the blessing of training dozens for evangelism, and by God’s grace, of leading hunderds to Jesus.

Fossils: History in Contention – Chris Ashcraft – (NWCN) @ Cedar Park Church - Bothell
Apr 10 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

fossils_and_the_floodSecular geologists say there has been no global flood as described in the Bible, but vast quantities of fossils provide a monumental testimony to this event and God’s recent judgment of humankind. This presentation provides an introduction to Creation Geology and a Biblical characterization of the fossil record, which is alternatively used to support the theory of evolution.

Numerous examples of fossils are provided that defy conventional explanation, and instead are more consistent with rapid burial and petrification. In addition, an explanation of fossil sorting is provided that is consistent with the mechanisms active during the Biblical deluge. When the evidence is examined, we see that the fossil record has been misinterpreted by secular geologists who deliberately ignore that the “world was deluged with water and perished” (2 Peter 3:3-6).

The include The God Delusion, God is not Great, and Letters to a Christian Nation. The four most popular atheist writers (Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, Christopher Hitchens, and Daniel Dennett). Our speaker Dr. Heinz Lycklama* will address some of their more popular claims, such as:
1. Faith is blind
2. Atheism is not a religion
3. Science has disproven God
4. There is no scientific evidence for God
5. Religion poisons everything
6. Evil and suffering disprove God
7. Morality does not come from God
8. Belief in Miracles is a superstition
InigoMeme Many books have been written by Christian writers refuting the claims made by these atheist writers, such as: Gunning for God by John Lennox, The Atheist Delusion by Phil Fernandez, and Letter from a Christian Nation by Douglas Wilson are some of the more popular responses to the assertions of the new atheists. Dr. Lycklama will examine the claims made by the new atheists, and respond to them one by one. He will conclude that the atheists have become much more aggressive, but offer no new evidence for their belief system. Theism offers a more rational answer than atheism.
Bio: Heinz Lycklama earned a Bachelors degree in Engineering Physics and a Ph.D. in experimental Nuclear Physics from McMaster University in Canada. Since then he has worked in the telecommunication and computer software industries.
  He was challenged in his Christian faith by what he was taught at university in the 1960s, so he later developed a series of lectures on this topic, and had presented this material in classes in the USA, and other venues in Europe and Asia, and North America.

Evidence For Jesus’ Resurrection – Dr. Phil Fernandes @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
Apr 25 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Evidence For Jesus' Resurrection - Dr. Phil Fernandes @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church | Arlington | Washington | United States

AFSC Meeting on April 25 – The 8th meeting of the Forum will be held on Friday, April 25 at 7:00 PM at the Atonement Free Lutheran Church in Arlington, WA. Dr. Phil Fernandes, President of the Institute of Biblical Defense in Bremerton, WA will speak on the topic “Evidence For Jesus’ Resurrection.” A description of the lecture follows.

In this lecture, Dr. Fernandes will make a strong historical case for Jesus’ bodily resurrection from the dead. He will argue from core historical data, accepted by virtually all New Testament scholars today, to the reality of Christ’s bodily resurrection. Fernandes will argue that if Jesus did not bodily rise from the dead, there would be no hope for mankind—death would be victorious over man. Mankind’s only hope for deliverance rests on the death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. While Fernandes uses a minimal facts case for the resurrection, he will warn his audience from falling into a minimal facts Christianity. Fernandes believes that even though we may feel led to defend mere Christianity (i.e., just the essentials of the Christian Faith), we should believe much more than mere Christianity. We should not allow human reason or historical methods to deny clear miraculous events recorded in the Scriptures.

Dr. Phil Fernandes is the senior pastor of Trinity Bible Fellowship and the president of the Institute of Biblical Defense. Fernandes founded the Institute of Biblical Defense in 1990 to help train Christians in their defense of the faith. He also teaches Bible, philosophy, and world religions at Crosspoint Academy and the Gateway School of Ministry in Bremerton, WA. He has completed doctoral work in both philosophy of religion (Greenwich University) and theological studies (Columbia Evangelical Seminary). He has authored several books dealing with the defense of the Christian faith. Many lectures/debates/sermons are available on his website.

Amazing Animals: Design vs. Darwinism – Chris Ashcraft (CAPS meeting) @ Bellevue Church of Christ
May 9 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

CAPS Meeting, Fri. May 9, 7 pm, at Bellevue Church of Christ

10419 SE 11th St., Bellevue http://www.bellevuechurchofchrist.org

7:00 pm Talk by Chris Ashcraft – Amazing Animals: Design vs. Darwinism

(preceded by refreshments and book table)
Cant-Reach-you_tn2Description:
What would the Earth be like without animals?
They are indeed a very special part of the creation that provides endless fascination and brings much love into our lives. Previously unknown animals are discovered each year and the complicated world of these creatures has been made clearer by recent scientific discoveries.
This presentation will focus on the amazing abilities of animals that are often a source of inspiration to engineers. Humans have long practiced biomimicry in an attempt to glean the ingenuity behind biological designs, and in doing so testify to the creative power of our Father in heaven.

Description:Phil Fernandes

Dr. Fernandes shows from the Scriptures that Christian Apologetics (the rational defense of the faith) is clearly based in the Scriptures. The Bible speaks about God revealing Himself to man in His creation and in man’s conscience. And, the Apostles defended the faith using both eyewitness testimony and their own testimonies. Hence, traditional apologetics is biblical. Dr. Fernandes will also discuss different ways to defend the faith.

About the Speaker:

Dr. Phil Fernandes is the president of the Institute of Biblical Defense, which he founded in 1990 to teach Christians how to defend the Christian Faith. He is also the pastor of Trinity Bible Fellowship in Silverdale, Washington, and teaches philosophy, world religions, theology, and apologetic’s for CrossPoint Academy and the Imago Dei Institute (formerly Cascade Bible College).

Dr.Phil Fernandes has earned the following degrees: a Ph.D. in philosophy of religion from Greenwich University, a Master of Arts in Religion from Liberty University, and a Bachelor of Theology from Columbia Evangelical Seminary. Fernandes has debated some of America’s leading atheists (i.e., Dr. Michael Martin of Boston University, Jeff Lowder, Jim Corbett, and Dan Barker). He has lectured and debated in defense of the Christian world view at some of America’s leading universities: Princeton, the University of Washington, Oregon State University, and the University of North Carolina (Chapel Hill). Dr.Fernandes is a member of four professional societies: the Evangelical Theological Society, the Evangelical Philosophical Society, the International Society of Christian Apologetics, the International Society of Christian Apologetics, and the Society of Christian Philosophers.

Thousands Not Billions: Nuclear Evidence for a Young Earth – Dr. Larry Vardiman @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
May 16 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

poloniumisotopehalodecayAFSC Meeting on May 16th – The 9th meeting of the Forum was held on Friday, May 16th at 7:00 PM at the Atonement Free Lutheran Church in Arlington, WA. Dr. Larry Vardiman, former Vice President of the Institute for Creation Research, spoke on the topic “Thousands Not Billions: Nuclear Evidence For a Young Earth.” A description of the lecture follows.

The age of the earth stands out as one of the most important issues among Christians today! An old-earth interpretation clouds our view of the accuracy of Scripture. It supports the theory of evolution. It affects our perception of God. If Scripture can’t be trusted on the age of the earth, how can it be trusted on other issues?

quartzhaloBut have we been misled about the reliability of radioactive dating methods? The RATE group believes we have. The RATE group, consisting of eight young-earth creationist geologists, geochemists, geophysicists, physicists, and a Hebraist, cooperated to research the issue of Radioisotopes and the Age of the Earth. They dared ask the tough questions and found an alternative explanation for the billions of years conventionally assigned to rocks. They found answers like:

  • Large amounts of nuclear decay have occurred during earth history
  • Helium concentrations in rocks confirm massive nuclear decay
  • Helium diffusion and radiohalos document accelerated nuclear decay
  • Coal and diamonds are young because they contain carbon-14
  • Theoretical studies support accelerated decay
  • Conventional dating methods are unreliable
  • Creation and the Flood are recent historical events
  • The Creation and Flood accounts are accurate historical narratives

particlephysicsThe RATE researchers have solved a major portion of the radioisotope riddle. Larry Vardiman was the director of the RATE project and senior editor of the two technical books written in 2000 and 2005 reporting on the project.

Dr. Vardiman retired from the Institute for Creation Research in 2012 after 30 years of research, writing, teaching, and speaking on creation. Prior to his full-time ministry in creation science he conducted 15 years of field research in cloud physics and weather modification for the U.S. Department of Interior, the U.S. Air Force, and Colorado State University. He obtained his B.S. in Physics from the University of Missouri at Rolla, a B.S. in Meteorology from St. Louis University, and an M.S. and Ph.D. in Atmospheric Science from Colorado State University. He has written over 30 technical articles, 10 books, and many conference papers. He was Director and Editor of the RATE Project, a study on Radioisotopes and the Age of the Earth. For the past 10 years he has been conducting numerical simulations of climate and weather during the ice age. He used conventional research models and data supplied by NASA and NOAA to study storms enhanced by warm oceans heated through catastrophic events of the Genesis Flood. He continues to conduct limited research, writing, and speaking in the Northwest. Dr. Vardiman lives on Camano Island, Washington, is married to Jeannette, a registered nurse, has 4 children, and 6 grandchildren.

“Fossils: Friend or Foe?” & “Becoming Bold: Know It! Live It! Share It!” – Carl Kerby @ Woodin Valley Baptist Church
Jun 1 @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm
"Fossils: Friend or Foe?" & "Becoming Bold: Know It! Live It! Share It!" - Carl Kerby @ Woodin Valley Baptist Church | Bothell | Washington | United States

What does it mean to be a Christian and why is it important to grow in knowledge? It’s an alarming fact that 50 to 88% of young people raised in Bible-believing Christian homes are walking away from the church by age 18. Carl examines the causes of this huge exodus and then shows how, by starting with the Bible, there are solutions to this massive problem. We all need to know how to stand uncompromisingly on the authority and accuracy of the Bible, and be prepared to answer difficult questions and boldly proclaim the gospel.

Carl Kerby is a former air-traffic controller and a creation apologist speaker who teaches how to defend the Bible against scientific naturalism. He was one of the founding board members for Answers in Genesis, and has been described by AiG as one of their most dynamic lecturers on the Book of Genesis.  After serving with Answers in Genesis for over 15 years, Carl became the Founder and President of Reasons for Hope. He is a much sought-after speaker both in the United States and abroad, and has spoken in Bermuda, Canada, England, Greece, Israel, Jamaica, Japan, Mexico, the Philippines, Wales and others.

He grew up in a liberal church that taught evolution could be mixed with God’s Word. In 1987 Carl Kerby became a Christian after attending a crusade in Salt Lake City, Utah. While an air-traffic controller and riding in the cockpit on a flight, the Creation vs. Evolution issue came up during a conversation with the pilots. The co-pilot argued that the Bible and Evolution were a totally different worldviews that could not be in harmonized. He then introduced Carl to Ken Ham’s book The Lie: Evolution, which helped him trust in the Bible as authoritative on the issue of creation.

Carl and his wife Masami have been married for more than 30 years. They have two children, Alisa (Bobby) and Carl Jr. (Tish) and four grandchildren, Trey, Naomi, Mari and James. Carl is the author of Remote Control: The Power of Hollywood on Today’s Culture, Absotively, Posilutely, The Best Evidence for Creation and Reasons for Hope In The Mosaic of Your Life. Carl and Masami live in Hebron, KY.

Overcoming the World – 2014 Ligoniers West Coast Conference @ Overlake Christian Church
Jun 6 @ 6:00 pm – Jun 7 @ 5:00 pm

Being a Christian in a Post-Christian Culture

Dear friend,

This world—in its present condition—is not our home. Scripture reminds us of this truth again and again, exhorting us to look to heaven and to consider ourselves as strangers and exiles on the earth (Heb. 11:13). As wonderful as life can be in this fallen world, there is something better in store for God’s people.

As we watch the culture around us grow more hostile to the traditional teachings of orthodox, biblical Christianity, our awareness that our home is elsewhere gets stronger. Yet that doesn’t mean we can leave this world behind. Christ has called us to be His witnesses even in our post-Christian culture, and we must be prepared to live as salt and light in the midst of our generation.

To help believers learn what it means to be a witness in this world, Ligonier Ministries is hosting our West Coast Conference, “Overcoming the World: Being a Christian in a Post-Christian Culture.” On June 6–7, 2014, Drs. Steven Lawson, Stephen Meyer, Albert Mohler, and R.C. Sproul Jr. will be joining me in Seattle as we cover modern challenges to the Christian and how we may effectively witness to the truth in a society that seems determined to overthrow every connection to its Christian heritage.

Please consider joining us for this conference in June. I look forward to enjoying this time of worship, teaching, fellowship, and prayer together with you.

In Christ,

R.C. Sproul

Answering the New Atheists – Dr. Heinz Lycklama @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
Jun 27 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

AFSC Meeting on June 27th – The 10th meeting of the Forum will be held on Friday, June 27th at 7:00 PM at the Atonement Free Lutheran Church in Arlington, WA. Dr. Heinz Lycklama, co-founder of the Apologetics Forum of Snohomish County, will speak on the topic “Answering The New Atheists.” A description of the lecture follows.

New AtheistsWe have seen the publication of some bestselling books over the last ten years by some very aggressive atheists. They include “The God Delusion”, “God is not Great”, and “Letter to a Christian Nation.” The four most popular atheist writers (Dawkins, Hitchens, Harris, and Dennett) are often referred to as the “Four Horsemen.” They make some outrageous claims about the Christian Faith, Creationism and Evolutionism. In this talk we address some of their more popular claims such as:

  1.  Faith is blind
  2. Atheism is not a religion
  3. Science has disproved God
  4. There is no evidence for God
  5. Religion poisons everything
  6. Evil and suffering disprove God
  7. Morality does not come from God
  8. Belief in Miracles is superstition.

Many books have been written by Christian writers refuting the claims made by these atheist writers. “Gunning For God”, “The Atheist Delusion”, and “Letter From a Christian Nation” are some of the more popular responses to the claims of these new atheists. We examine the claims made by the atheists, and respond to them one by one. We conclude that the atheists have become much more aggressive, but offer no new evidence for their belief system. Theism offers a more rational answer than atheism. The New Atheists don’t have a case!

Heinz 4Dr. Heinz Lycklama earned a Ph. D. degree in Nuclear Physics from McMaster University in Canada and has worked in the telecommunications and computer software industries for over forty years. He has taught through many books of the Bible and has served as member and Chairman of various Missions Committees as well as Elder/Deacon Boards.

Challenged in his Christian faith by what he was taught in university in the 1960’s, Heinz later developed a series of lectures on Creation vs. Evolution and Christian Apologetics over the years and presented the material in Sunday school classes, to college students, during church services, at Bible Schools, and other venues in Europe, Asia, Africa and North America. With his knowledge of the Bible and science, he has continued to develop and present new material in these subject areas. More on Dr. Lycklama & his lectures at heinzlycklama.com/messages.

Earth’s Surface Shaped by Receding Floodwater – Michael Oard (Apologetics Symposium Meeting) @ Cedar Park Church
Jul 17 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Earth’s Surface Shaped by Receding Floodwater

July 17th at 7PM
Michael Oard
Creation Research Society
Download Poster/Flier (PDF or DOC)

Description:

Michael OardThe talk first discusses what the Bible says about how the Floodwater drained from off the continents. Then geological evidence for parts of the Earth’s crust rising and parts descending to drain the Floodwater is presented. Geological evidence of sheet currents flowing off the continents is shown in the form of huge erosion of domes and the erosional remnants left behind. All the eroded sediment is deposited at the margin of the continents forming the continental shelf and slope. As the water is moving off the continents, sometimes at high speed, a rough surface is planed smooth by the debris being carried along by the Floodwater. These surfaces are called planation surfaces, if they are flat, and erosion surfaces, if they are rolling. A veneer of the debris is commonly left on top of the planation or erosion surfaces as a thin layer of cobbles and boulders. These rounded rocks from water action sometimes contain percussion marks caused by all the intense turbulence of the draining Floodwater. At the same time, resistant rocks are carried long distances from their sources, documented from the northwest states and adjacent Canada for transport distances of up to 800 miles. All these features are difficult if not impossible to explain by the alternative ideas of mainstream geologists.

After sheet flow continued for many days, more and more mountains and plateaus extend above the draining Floodwater, forcing the water to channelized around these objects. Channelized flow, therefore, carves valleys and canyons rapidly, and creates many other features that are difficult if not impossible to explain by mainstream geologists. Such features include water and wind gaps, which are perpendicular cuts through mountains, ridges, or plateaus; pediments, which are planation surfaces at the foots of mountains or ridges; and submarine canyons that are cut perpendicular to the shoreline through the continental shelf and slope.

About the Speaker:

The Ice Age: Only the Bible can Explain It! – Michael Oard @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
Jul 25 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
The Ice Age: Only the Bible can Explain It! - Michael Oard @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church | Arlington | Washington | United States

AFSC Meeting on July 25th – The 11th meeting of the Forum will be held on Friday, July 25th at 7:00 PM at the Atonement Free Lutheran Church in Arlington, WA. Michael Oard, a Creation scientist specializing in Atmospheric Science,will speak on the topic “The Ice Age: Only The Bible Can Explain It!” A description of the lecture follows.

There are many earth-science challenges to the biblical worldview. Two of them are: what caused the Ice Age and could it occur in the short biblical timescale? However, secular scientists also have severe challenges when it comes to the ice age. That is why they have over 60 theories, and its origin is still a major mystery.

The talk will show how the radical climate change required for an Ice Age can be explained by the climatic aftermath of the Flood. After the Flood, volcanic particles would reflect some of the sunlight back to space, cooling the land mainly in summer. The oceans would be warm after the Flood, from pole to pole and top to bottom, which would cause much more evaporation for the abundant snow needed for an ice age. So, all the ingredients are set for a rapid ice age.

The timing of the Ice Age depends upon how fast the oceans cooled to today’s temperatures. Based on heat inputs and heat outputs, this time can be estimated. It comes out to 500 years to reach glacial maximum. The ice sheets would also melt rapidly in less than 200 years. So, the total time for the Ice Age results in an ice age that took only 700 years! Evidence will be presented that there really was only one Ice Age and there will be no future ice age.

By sticking to biblical starting conditions, we have solved many earth science challenges and can solve many more in the future.

 

Michael Oard earned his B.S. and M.S. degrees in atmospheric science from the University of Washington. For six years he was a research meteorologist at the University of Washington, and has published several research articles in journals and technical monographs of the American Meteorological Society. Michael retired in 2001 after 30 years of employment by the National Weather Service. Since then, he has been engaged in full time research, writing, and speaking in creation earth science. He has also authored, coauthored, or served as editor of twenty creationist books, and has published over 200 related articles in the creation science technical literature.

2014 Speaking the Truth in Love Conference @ Kent Covenant Church
Aug 8 – Aug 9 all-day
2014 Speaking the Truth in Love Conference @ Kent Covenant Church | Kent | Washington | United States

Come join us and explore answers on how to advance in our common Christian faith.

The Speaking the Truth in Love Conference is a non-denominational, grace-based organization. We strive to bring together a panel of local and national gifted speakers who are recognized within their areas of expertise in theology, apologetics, philosophy and the christian worldview.

The Christian faith is being left behind, irrelevant in an ever increasing iconoclastic society. Our conference offers inspired and forward-looking teaching of what is possible if Christians are informed and given new skills, tools, and ideas on how they can play a central role in their communities doing God’s work in defending and renewing all things in Jesus.

Our format provides a relaxed environment meant to expose, engage, astound, and deepen our awareness to the contemporary realities of the radical culture and social change taking place in our world today. Expect our presentations to be powerful and engaging with a brief Q & A session. Practical application isn’t always included; however, ideas are presented that allow participants to fellowship with one another and then implement these ideas within their social circles and extended community – advancing the Kingdom of God.

God’s people perish from a lack of knowledge and knowledge is the beginning of understanding. Understanding allows us to take action in order to impact others with the power of the gospel. With God’s help, we can forever affect and change the spiritual demographics of our church, communities, and cities abroad.

“…what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God”. – Ephesians 3:18-19

Science, History, & Scripture: Ancient Evidence Supports Biblical Accuracy @ Cedar Park Church

Science, History, and Scripture:

Ancient Evidence Supports Biblical Accuracy

August 21st at 7PM
Bruce Barton
Download Poster/Flier (PDF or DOC)

Description:

Bruce BartonCritics have charged that the Bible is “unscientific,” mythical, or inaccurate at best; Bible-believing Christians have been accused of being ignorant “flat-earthers.”

Is the Bible consistent with modern science? Or have scientific discoveries relegated the Bible to the status of myths and fairy tales? Although it isn’t a scientific textbook, the accuracy of Scripture has been verified time and again by archaeology, history, and scientific discoveries.

This presentation shows how the Bible actually anticipated and provided the basis for scientific discoveries. Certain scientific principles were in the Bible all along waiting for science to cast aside its misconceptions and come into line with what Scripture reveals. Many pitfalls and blind alleys could’ve been avoided by paying closer attention to what the Creator said in His Word.

About the Speaker:

Bruce Barton, has degrees in meteorology and theology, with studies in engineering and graduate work in atmospheric sciences. Mr. Barton was an instrumentation engineer in Research and Development for Weyerhaeuser Company until retirement. He has a broad background as a teacher and speaker to groups of all ages in a wide range of subjects including science and technology, aviation, and Bible topics, particularly apologetics. He has been speaking and teaching on the creation–evolution controversy for ten years. He also serves on the boards of directors for the 7 Wonders Museum at Mt. St. Helens and the Creation Association of Puget Sound.

“Life’s Information Systems” – Dr. Don Johnson @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
Aug 22 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
"Life's Information Systems" - Dr. Don Johnson @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church | Arlington | Washington | United States

AFSC Meeting on August 22 – The 12th meeting of the Forum was held on Friday, August 22 at 7:00 PM at the Atonement Free Lutheran Church in Arlington, WA. Dr. Don Johnson spoke on the topic Life’s Information Systems. A description of the lecture follows.

Life’s Information Systems is based on the “Programming of Life” book which has been a best-seller in molecular biology, and on which a PoL video is based.  This updated presentation begins with a quick review of the Biblical basis for studying science and God’s awesome fine-tuned creation.  After a review of terms related to life’s information, the reality of every cell’s computers and computer programs will be examined, including the coding systems and algorithmic requirements that have no naturalistic explanation.  Several difficulties of naturalistic scenarios will be highlighted, including the probabilities randomly forming life’s components, the reality of the fitness decline in each generation, and the lack of any possible undirected mechanism to produce life’s hardware and software.  Darwinism asserts that random changes (via DNA mutations) in real biological computer programs sometimes produce better programs, a concept that has no basis in computer science.

Scientific evidence is examined to compare creation and evolution scenarios as explanations.  The fall of Darwinism and the Extended Synthesis as a likely replacement is discussed.  Intelligent design is contrasted with creationism.  Evolution and atheism are shown to be religious, as verified by court decisions, with ramifications in the education system and all other aspects of society.  The importance of being informed on scientific truth, especially life’s information, is critical when confronting what is promoted as “science,” but is actually speculation that has no scientific basis.

Don Johnson earned Ph.D.s in both Computer & Information Sciences and in Chemistry. He was a senior research scientist and consultant for over 14 years, and taught 20 years in universities in the US and Europe. Since “retiring” as an APU (Christian university) professor, he has done consulting, speaking, and writing (4 books, including best-selling “Programming of Life,” and several peer-reviewed papers). He has made Christian and secular presentations across the US and on most continents.  His www.4iam.org Christian Website has links to the “Programming of Life” PoL video (over 236,000 on-line views),  several video presentations and printable flyers, as well as links to his two secular science Websites.  For over 20 years he believed, taught, and defended the evolutionary scenarios, until science convinced him of the bankruptcy of those beliefs.

“Non-Mythical Adam and Eve” – Dr. Robert Carter (CAPS event) @ Geology Learning Center @ The Expedition Christian Church
Sep 15 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

biobanner-robertcarterGet Answers!

Does God exist? How can anyone believe in religion when science has neither a need nor a place for God? Is evolution happening today? If God is a God of love, why do we suffer and die?

Creation Ministries International is coming to your area soon with answers to these important questions. Come and hear Dr Robert Carter expose the bankruptcy of the evolutionary myth. You’ll be amazed to see how weak the scientific evidence for evolution is.

This is an issue that affects everyone. Evolution teaches us there is no need for God, there is no spiritual realm, and there is no afterlife. According to the theory, spirituality is just an evolutionary trick of the mind!

The Bible gives a very different picture about the nature of these things. At this presentation, you will learn how the scientific evidence, when properly understood, confirms the details of the biblical account. At the same time, we will answer many of the Big Questions.

Robert Carter was awarded a PhD in Marine Biology (Genetics) from the University of Miami in 2003 with a dissertation of “Cnidarian Fluorescent Proteins.” Also, he studied the genetics of pigmentation in corals and other invertebrates, and designed and built an aquaculture facility for Caribbean corals, From: http://creation.com/dr-robert-carter

“Chrislam Exposed” – Pastor Shahram Hadian @ Atonement Free Lutheran Chruch
Sep 26 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
"Chrislam Exposed" - Pastor Shahram Hadian @ Atonement Free Lutheran Chruch | Arlington | Washington | United States

AFSC Meeting on September 26 – The 13th meeting of the Forum will be held on Friday, September 26 at 7:00 PM at the Atonement Free Lutheran Church in Arlington, WA. Pastor Shahram Hadian will speak on the topic “Chrislam Exposed.” A description of the lecture follows.

In Chrislam Exposed Pastor Shahram Hadian exposes the seductive lie of a common God between Christianity and Islam. He shares his journey of becoming a Christian, will expose the false teachings of Chrislam, and uncover Chrislam’s growing and devastating implementation into our churches and missions both in America and oversees.

Shahram speaks around the nation with a heart to awaken America, and especially the church. As a former Muslim, he is deeply grieved over Christian pastors and missional leaders promoting this false gospel in their effort to be culturally sensitive to Muslims. Despite Chrislam’s proponents, Christians and Muslims do not worship the same God.

Shahram was born in Iran and came to America at the age of 7 to escape an oppressive Islamic regime. He is a proud US citizen. He experienced a transformational life change when he committed his life to Jesus Christ 14 years ago. He has served his local community as a pastor, police officer, teacher and coach and was a candidate for WA State Governor in 2012.

You cannot be a Muslim and a true follower of Jesus Christ. Chrislam not only endangers the hope of salvation for Muslims but threatens to lead many Christians astray from the truth of God’s Word.”

– Shahram Hadian

“Debunking the Big Bang” – Spike Psarris @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
Oct 17 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

The 14th meeting of the Forum will be held on Friday, October 17 at 7:00 PM at the Atonement Free Lutheran Church in Arlington, WA. Spike Psarris will speak on the topic Debunking The Big BangA description of the lecture follows.

Was our Universe created by God, as described in the Bible? Or did it form itself in a Big Bang event, billions of years ago?

Secular scientists say that the Big Bang model is correct. But a closer examination reveals that this model is riddled with serious problems. It violates important principles of physics, it has absurd implications, and it even contradicts itself. Join us at the October AFSC meeting as we discuss these problems and debunk the Big Bang model.

SpikepsarrisThe speaker, Spike Psarris, has a Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering and has done graduate work in Physics. He worked for a number of years as an engineer in the US military space program. He entered that program as an atheist and an evolutionist, and left it as a creationist and a Christian. Today he speaks on creation/evolution, especially as it relates to astronomy, and has published two DVDs on the subject. His website is www.CreationAstronomy.com.

Spike presented lectures on astronomy at the annual Seattle Creation Conference in 2013.

The 15th meeting of the Forum was held on Friday, November 21st at 7:00 PM at the Atonement Free Lutheran Church in Arlington, WA. Dr. John Byl spoke on the topic “War of the Worldviews: Christianity vs. Naturalism.” A description of the lecture follows.

It was widely claimed that science has undermined belief in Biblical miracles and the Biblical God. The myth is that objective, rational science is pitted against subjective, irrational religion. However, in science we must distinguish between hard observational data and subjective theory, which tries to explain the data. Scientific theory is very much worldview-driven. Worldviews reflect our most basic presuppositions about reality. Which worldview should interpret the data? The war is really between naturalism and Christianity. The presuppositions of naturalism lead to a number drastic implications, such as a denial of purpose. Naturalism has difficulty answering many basic questions about reality, such as the interactions between matter, mind, and math. The defense of naturalism is ultimately self-refuting. Christianity, on the other hand, gives coherence, meaning, purpose & hope.

John Byl has a Ph.D. in astronomy from the University of British Columbia. He is Professor Emeritus at Trinity Western University, Langley, BC, where he taught for over 30 years, and was chair of the department of Mathematical Sciences. He has written two books, “God and Cosmos: A Christian View of Time, Space, and the Universe” (2001) and “The Divine Challenge: On Matter,Mind, Math, and Meaning” (2004), as well as numerous articles on science, Christian worldview, and science/religion issues. His blog http://bylogos.blogspot.ca/ promotes a Biblical worldview.

“Polystrate Fossils & Petrified Forests” – J. D. Mitchell @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
Dec 12 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

 

The 16th meetpolystrate-fossil-jogginsing of the Forum was held on Friday, December 12 at 7:00 PM at the Atonement Free Lutheran Church in Arlington, WA. J.D. Mitchell, P.E., BSME, MBS, spoke on the topic “Polystrate Fossils & Petrified Forests.” A description of the lecture follows.

Any fossil that crosses two or more sedimentary layers is called a poly (many) strate (strata) fossil. Polystrate fossils have been discovered all around the world and polystrate fossil trees are quite commonly found in coal mines. Other types of polystrate fossils can be found in various locations and situations of sedimentary strata.

These geological and paleontological evidences are compelling arguments against uniformitarianism and millions of years of earth history. The most plausible alternative explanation to the “deep time” secular view is that these fossils were rapidly buried, a concept that is in line with the biblical creationist view that most of the sedimentary layers of the world were laid down during the Genesis Flood at the time of Noah.

In this PowerPoint presentation by J.D. Mitchell, a number of examples of polystrate fossils will be examined including fossilized trees, complete forests, trace fossils and several kinds of animals. Possible explanations for these types of fossils found in thick as well as thin multi-layers are provided based upon biblical creationist presuppositions.

JDMitchellJ.D. Mitchell is a registered professional engineer in Oregon and Washington and has a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Washington. He has also completed his Master of Biblical Studies in Biblical Creation Apologetics from Master’s Graduate School of Divinity.

J.D. is Executive Director of the Institute for Creation Science of Oregon, and speaks and writes regarding the creation versus evolution controversy as a part of his creation science ministry (Creation Engineering Concepts).

Truth, Lies, and Science Education – Paul Taylor @ Cedar Park Church
Jan 15 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Truth, Lies, and Science Education

Description: The inbuilt bias of National Curriculum Science and US education system is examined. The teaching of Science under the National Curriculum (in England, Wales and Northern Ireland) is far from neutral. Rather, it is influenced by an inbuilt bias in favor of evolution and against Christianitypftaylor_300dpi. In areas pertaining to evolution, the curriculum acts against its own precepts of investigation and enquiry. This talk analyses the history of the National Curriculum, its implementation and the misapprehensions and miscomprehensions of educators.
About the Speaker: Paul Taylor is the new Director the 7 Wonders Museum of Mount St. Helens. He taught science in state schools for 17 years, eventually becoming a Head of Department, and gained a Master’s degree in Science Education at Cardiff University.

As a schoolteacher, Taylor frequently challenged pupils to think through the issue of origins for themselves, rather than accept evolutionary orthodoxy. These teaching methods, particularly as Taylor began developing curricula, frequently brought him into conflict with more evolutionary-minded staff.

Taylor joined the staff of AiG (UK/Europe) in August 2005 as a writer and speaker and eventually became the UK’s Senior Speaker and Head of Media for AiG-UK. Taylor contributed regularly to the AiG website and Answers Magazine and continues writing numerous articles, many of which are published in various Christian magazines.

“Egyptian Chronology and the Bible” by Patrick Nurre @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
Jan 23 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

nurre1  Slider-Jan23-15

 

The 17th meeting of the Forum was held on Friday, January 23rd at 7:00 PM at the Atonement Free Lutheran Church in Arlington, WA. Patrick Nurre, a geologist, spoke on the topic “Egyptian Chronology and the Bible.” A description of the lecture follows.

Many will dismiss what the Bible has to say simply because they believe the Bible can’t be trusted in the area of historical accuracy.  Egyptian Chronology  is the lynch pin for this.  During this presentation we will include a discussion of the latest in archaeology as it relates to Egyptian Chronology.  At issue is the debate that rages over the accuracy of the Egyptian Chronology, long held to be the “gold standard” in historical chronology.  This presentation will give you great encouragement in your efforts to believe the Scriptures and help equip you to trust the historical accuracy of the Bible.

Patrick Nurre was trained in the secular view of geology. Over the past 40 years he has been actively involved in the Creation/Evolution issue in the field of geology. He has spoken to hundreds of college students, and is a popular speaker at many conventions and homeschool conferences. In 2005, Patrick created Northwest Treasures to provide opportunities to study geology from a Biblical perspective.  In the fall of 2012, he opened the Geology Learning Center, a geology museum/educational center located in Mountlake Terrace. Patrick leads field trips each year to many geological sites including his annual field trip to Yellowstone Park in August.

His web site is at www.northwestrockandfossil.com (Northwest Treasures).

Dinosaurs: Monsters of the Ancient World – Bruce Barton @ Edgewood Bible Church
Jan 29 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Bruce_Barton

The South Sound Creation Forum & Creation Association of Puget Sound (CAPS) presents:

Bruce Barton talks on: “Dinosaurs: Monsters of the Ancient World”

January 29th at 7 PM at Edgewood Bible Church, 1720 Meridian Ave. E, Edgewood, WA
(South of Federal Way and East of Tacoma)

Description: Evolutionary theory holds that dinosaurs dominated the earth during the Age of Reptiles, some 230 to 65 million years ago, before mammals evolved. Then they were all killed off by some catastrophic event, generally supposed to have been an asteroid strike. But mounting evidence indicates that although there was a cataclysmic event in the past, some dinosaurs survived. Hundreds of clues from many different cultures around the world lend support to the contention that they were around much more recently than 65 million years ago. If this is true, serious questions are raised about dinosaur evolution and the evolutionary timescale.

This talk will introduce the subject of dinosaurs, and present evidence from paleontology, archaeology, legends, old chronicles, and the Bible that stories of ancient monsters were more than just myths. This evidence will undergird the case for recent creation and the accuracy of the Bible.

About the Speaker: Bruce Barton serves as Vice President of the Creation Association of Puget Sound. He holds degrees in meteorology and theology, with studies in engineering and graduate work in atmospheric sciences. Mr. Barton was an instrumentation engineer in Research and Development for Weyerhaeuser Company until retirement. He has a broad background as a teacher and speaker to groups of all ages in a wide range of subjects, including science and technology, aviation, and Bible topics, particularly apologetics. He has been speaking and teaching on the creation–evolution controversy for over ten years.

His web site: https://sites.google.com/site/monarchnw/

The South Sound Creation Forum is sponsored by the Creation Association of Puget Sound. We plan to meet monthly at Edgewood Bible Church, and will feature multimedia presentations by speakers, scientists, and authors who are dedicated to defending the Bible against naturalism. The events are free and open to the public and generally suitable for ages 11 and up. Educational resources will be available for sale from the Creation Association of Puget Sound and Monarch Creation Ministry. Edgewood Bible Church is located at 1720 Meridian Ave. E, Edgewood, WA

Evolution’s Four Fatal Flaws – Dr. Heinz Lycklama @ Cedar Park Church
Feb 19 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Heinz 4


Description: It has become abundantly clear that evolutionary thinking is not based on scientific evidence. This lecture offers four major challenges to the “theory” of Evolution. 1) (Macro) Evolution has never been observed. It takes a giant leap in faith to get from (micro) evolution, which has been observed, to (macro) evolution.2) No credible transitional fossils have been identified in the 150 years since Darwin wrote “Origins of Species.” Evolution did not happen. 3) Life can/did not originate from non-life by random chance. Evolution can/will not happen. 4) Evolution is in conflict with the Second Law of Thermodynamics. Evolution in fact is impossible. Evolution is a philosophy and a belief system, not science.

About the Speaker: Dr. Heinz Lycklama earned a Bachelor’s degree in Engineering Physics and a Ph. D. degree in experimental Nuclear Physics from McMaster University in Canada in 1965 and 1969 respectively. Since then he has worked in the telecommunications and computer software industries at Bell Telephone Laboratories in NJ and at Interactive Systems Corporation in CA.

Being challenged in his Christian faith by what he was taught in university in the 1960’s, Dr. Lycklama has always maintained an active interest in the Creation vs. Evolution controversy. He has developed a series of lectures on this topic over the years and presented the material in Sunday school classes, to college students, during church services and also at an overseas seminary.

No Compromise – Paul F. Taylor @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
Feb 20 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

pftaylor_300dpi    DaysOCreation6  no_compromise

The 18th meeting of the Forum was held on Friday, February 20th at 7:00 PM at the Atonement Free Lutheran Church in Arlington, WA. Paul Taylor, the new Director of the Mount St. Helens Creation Center, spoke on the topic “No Compromise.” A description of the lecture follows.

Today, people and churches, that identify themselves as Bible-believing evangelicals, have a number of views on Genesis, other than that of a literal six-day creation. We address such views as:

The Gap Theory – suggesting a time gap between Genesis 1:1 and 1:2 (or sometimes before Genesis 1:1), allowing for millions of years, while still accepting a six-day (re)creation.

Progressive Creation – that God created objects and creatures progressively, over the alleged 14 billion years or so since the supposed Big Bang.

ANE-Tabernacle Models – a small variety of models, associated with the BioLogos Foundation, mostly suggesting that biblical writers were products of their time, and therefore unfamiliar with the scientific advances of the modern world. These models usually take a particular view on Ancient Near East philosophies and are used in conjunction with justifying a theistic evolutionary position.

The talk affirms the biblical position, of God creating everything in six literal 24-hour days and resting on the seventh, to be the correct position.

Paul Taylor was born and grew up near Manchester in the North of England. He studied piano at Chetham’s School of Music, but read Chemistry at the University of Nottingham. Paul taught Chemistry, Physics and Science in government (“public”) schools in England and Wales for 18 years, eventually becoming a Head of Science, with a Masters in Science Education and Management from the University of Cardiff.

Paul was saved at the age of 15. He came across creationist literature in his late teens, and quickly became involved in speaking and writing on the subject of creation and evolution, Genesis and apologetics. Since 2005, he has been a full-time creation speaker, having worked for Answers in Genesis (UK/Europe) and Creation Today. He and his wife are now the Directors of the Mount St Helens Creation Center. Paul is married to Geri, and they have five children between them.

Creation or Evolution, Who Cares? – Paul F. Taylor @ First Baptist Church of Arlington
Feb 22 @ 6:00 pm – 7:15 pm

pftaylor_300dpi CreationOrEvolutionMatter

Paul Taylor, the new Director of the Mount St. Helens Creation Center, spoke on the topic “Creation vs. Evolution, Who Cares?” at the First Baptist Church of Arlington, WA during the evening service. A description of the talk follows.

Today many people and churches, that identify themselves as Bible-believing evangelicals, want to know why the debate on the relevance of the Creation/Evolution issue is so controversial. Why does it matter what Christians believe on the subject? The talk aims to show the correct biblical way to think through the issues, and the implications for other Biblical doctrines.

Paul Taylor was born and grew up near Manchester in the North of England. He studied piano at Chetham’s School of Music, but read Chemistry at the University of Nottingham. Paul taught Chemistry, Physics and Science in government (“public”) schools in England and Wales for 18 years, eventually becoming a Head of Science, with a Masters in Science Education and Management from the University of Cardiff.

Planet of the Apes? – Chris Ashcraft @ Cedar Park Church
Mar 19 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

200px-Chris_Ashcraft    Planet_of_the_Apes

Secular Paleoanthropologists assert adamantly that humans are the descendants of ape-like ancestors. Darwin’s seminal theory led naturalists inexorably to this conclusion, but the Bible clearly states that we were created distinct from the animals and in the image of God.

This presentation examines the evidence used to support human evolution, including Neanderthals, Homo erectus, and Australopithecines. Are these ancient hominids really missing links capable of substantiating human evolution or has the truth been distorted to support the materialistic evolutionary worldview?

Chris Ashcraft is a Christian educator, creation scientist, and speaker employed as high school science teacher at Cedar Park Christian Schools where he provides instruction in Biology, Chemistry, Human Anatomy and Physiology, and Life Science.

Formerly, Chris was a research technician, specialized in plant tissue culture, and genetic transformation technology. He served as a research technician at the Cotton Fiber Production Laboratory at Texas Tech University, he then provided technical support at the Plant Transformation Facility at Oklahoma State University, and lastly was employed as 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 in Teaching Math and Science from Seattle Pacific University in 2012.

Answering Skeptics … Bill Nye – Carl Kerby @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
Apr 24 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Carl Kerby2HamNye

 

 

 

 

 

Bill Nye “The Science Guy” has become popular again recently.  He did a “big talk” video where he went after those that don’t believe in evolution in a major way. He also held a very public debate with Ken Ham, President of Answers in Genesis. It was watched by millions last year.

In this talk Carl breaks down that video and addresses his claims made in the video as well as in the debate.  In addition questions that he raised are addressed using secular sources.

What does he mean by “evolution”?
Are “tiny changes” the mechanism by which a worm eventually turned into humans?
How are mutations involved in that process?
Can a “Christian” really do “science”?
What about “ancient dinosaur bones”?  Don’t they show Christians are wrong?
Plus more!

Christians need to be ready to give an answer for the reason for the hope that they have within them.  This talk helps give some of those answers and, hopefully, encourages the body of Christ to become more visible in the culture.


Kerby is a former air-traffic controller and a creation apologist speaker who teaches how to defend the Bible against scientific naturalism. He was one of the founding board members for Answers in Genesis, and has been described by AiG as one of their most dynamic lecturers on the Book of Genesis. After serving with Answers in Genesis for over 15 years, Carl became the Founder and President of Reasons for Hope. He is a much sought-after speaker both in the United States and abroad, and has spoken in Bermuda, Canada, England, Greece, Israel, Jamaica, Japan, Mexico, the Philippines, Wales and others.

He grew up in a liberal church that taught evolution could be mixed with God’s Word. In 1987 Carl Kerby became a Christian after attending a crusade in Salt Lake City, Utah. While an air-traffic controller and riding in the cockpit on a flight, the Creation vs. Evolution issue came up during a conversation with the pilots. The co-pilot argued that the Bible and Evolution were totally different worldviews that could not be harmonized. He then introduced Carl to Ken Ham’s book The Lie: Evolution, which helped him trust in the Bible as authoritative on the issue of creation.

Carl and his wife Masami have been married for more than 30 years. They have two children, Alisa (Bobby) and Carl Jr. (Tish) and four grandchildren, Trey, Naomi, Mari and James. Carl is the author of Remote Control: The Power of Hollywood on Today’s Culture, Absotively, Posilutely, The Best Evidence for Creation and Reasons for Hope In The Mosaic of Your Life. Carl and Masami live in Hebron, KY.

Young Adult/Family Night – Carl Kerby @ First Baptist Church of Arlington
Apr 25 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Carl Kerby, Founder and President of Reasons For Hope, presented two lectures addressed to the young adults and families. Believers of all ages benefited from both of these lectures:
1. Remote Control: The Power of Hollywood on Today’s Culture.
2. What About … Human Evolution?

Remote Control: The Power of Hollywood on Today’s Culture – Currently children spend 900 hours a year in a school. That same student typically spends 1064 hours in front of a TV. If the church thinks they can overcome this much indoctrination by having the youth for 1 -3 hours a week by playing games and eating pizza, they’re wrong! In this talk Carl shares numerous examples from Comic books, TV, Movies etc. showing how much indoctrination is taking place. Even in family friendly’ materials there are blatant teachings that are undermining our young people’s ability to trust the Word of God. This talk will help Christians to get their ‘radar’ turned on in order to catch these falsehoods. It will also teach parents how they can use the media as a way to start communicating the truth of God’s Word.

What About … Human Evolution? In our world today we’re inundated with the message that man evolved over millions of years. Our school systems, television programs, movies and even music push this message on us constantly. But, what does the ‘evidence’ really show? Using information from the “Revealing the Link” website Carl will discuss the supposed evolutionary ‘ancestors’ used there to “prove” human evolution. This includes the world famous, Lucy. Once we look beyond the “veneer” at what the actual evidence really shows, you may be surprised! We can and need to have answers to these issues today.

A proper understanding of what the ‘evidence’ shows in the fossil record is vital to having Biblical answers in today’s world. We cover how bias and world-views affect the way that we see the world around us.

Becoming Bold: Know it, Live it, Share it!– The church is losing its next generation at an alarming rate. Anywhere from 50 to 88 percent of the young people raised in Bible-believing Christian homes walk away from the church after age 18. Carl examines the causes of this huge exodus, but then shows that by starting with the Bible, solutions can be offered to this massive problem in the church. Young people in our churches need to know how to stand uncompromisingly on the authority and accuracy of the Bible so that they can answer the skeptical questions of the age.

Evangelism 101: 10 things you can learn about Evangelism from an Atheist! – If we want to reach the world today with the Gospel we’re going to have as many tools at our disposal as possible. One tool that everyone of us can use is, conversation! Carl uses clips from a popular TV program from Showtime featuring the entertainers Penn and Teller attacking Christianity and the Bible. Carl shows how and how NOT to answer the attacks leveled against Christians.

Carl Kerby is a former air-traffic controller and a creation apologist speaker who teaches how to defend the Bible against scientific naturalism. He was one of the founding board members for Answers in Genesis, and has been described by AiG as one of their most dynamic lecturers on the Book of Genesis. After serving with Answers in Genesis for over 15 years, Carl became the Founder and President of Reasons for Hope. He is a much sought-after speaker both in the United States and abroad, and has spoken in Bermuda, Canada, England, Greece, Israel, Jamaica, Japan, Mexico, the Philippines, Wales and others.

A World Where Birds Eat Horses: The Language of Evolution – Paul Taylor @ Edgewood Bible Church
May 15 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

 

A World Where Birds Eat Horses: The Language of Evolution

If you look in almost any secular museum, you will see evidence for evolution. However, the evidence presented is not in the artifacts or scientific material behind the glass – it only consists of the use of language in the wording on the displays. Similarly, popular science articles and high school text books use a particular form of language in order to try to hide the fact that there is no real scientific evidence for their position.

In this fun talk, Paul shows how to analyze such documents and materials, without the need for any scientific background, in order to find out how much genuine science there is in any such presentation.

Author of nine books, Paul Taylor has been speaking on creation and apologetics, and against evolution, for over 35 years. He is cupftaylor_300dpirrently the Director of the Mount St. Helens Creation Center in Toutle, WA.

Paul is an international speaker on creation, evolution, Genesis and apologetics. He travels across the USA and elsewhere to speak on the subject, and has previously spoken throughout the UK and Europe. Paul has formerly worked for Answers in Genesis (UK) and for Creation Today (based in Pensacola, FL). Paul has also addressed conferences throughout America, sharing platforms with major speakers.

Why This Scientist Can’t Believe in Evolution – Dr. Ed Neeland @ Woodin Valley Baptist Church
May 28 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Why This Scientist Can’t Believe in Evolution

What happens when the 18 year old Ed Neeland, who has just accepted Jesus as his Savior, enters university as a biology major? In this lecture Dr. Neeland describes some of the struggles and triumphs of that time. The influence of university courses/professors was not strong enough to snuff out his faith, and in fact made it stronger as he delved deeper into a comparison of what the Bible and Evolution have to say about origins. Join Dr. Neeland for a personal journey through those early years and what he learned from that experience.


Ed has always been a curious person. As a young boy, he spent hours exploring creeks, live-trapping raccoons, making plaster of Paris impressions of animal prints and raising abandoned birds (which he mistakenly rescued from a bird sanctuary). He became a PhD scientist because the beauty of nature captured him early and he wanted answers to his questions. Ed became a follower of Jesus Christ at the age of 18 and soon learned that his biology professors and the Bible were at odds. This started an eye-opening period of comparing the evidence against both origin accounts. It became very apparent that the Biblical story of creation was far more consistent with the evidence than evolution. Today, Ed is a university chemistry professor teaching students and specializing in the synthesis of new antibiotic/anti-inflammatory medicines. Ed continues to educate people in creation-evolution talks as well as being an archer, gold prospector and motorcyclist. Trivia: in his athletic prime, Ed was a member of the 100 meter Olympic sprint team.

Dr. Ed Neeland speaks at the following venues within the Greater Seattle area during the weekend of May 28-30:

  1. Thursday, May 28th, 7:00 PM, Lecture on “This Scientist Says He Can’t Believe in Evolution” at the CAPS meeting at Woodin Valley Baptist Church in Bothell, WA.

A Scientist Tests The Verses of Genesis

What happens when a chemistry professor investigates the claims in the first book of the Bible? You might think that this is a disaster waiting to happen. Not at all. We believe by faith that the Bible is God’s word and is an accurate description of our origins. This talk will examine key Bible’s verses in Genesis and see that the evidence supports them. Surprised? We will give reasons why Christians should take a firm stand on what God told us really happened in the early days of our planet. The world (and even the occasional Christian) thinks that the Genesis account is a myth. Dr. Ed Neeland has looked closely into key Genesis verses and found them to be scientifically accurate.

Do you believe that Adam was made from the ground? The world says nonsense!
That Eve was created from Adam’s rib? Impossible…
Were there walking snakes? Fairy tales…
A global flood? Only in your dreams….

The world sees science and Christianity as fact and faith. But there are many facts showing that God’s words in Genesis make sense. Join Dr. Ed Neeland as he shows how the scientific evidence supports the Genesis account again and again. This talk will deepen your understanding and you will see the book of Genesis in a new way. It is Ed’s hope that this talk will strengthen your faith. When people object that the Bible is a storybook of fables…please use a few examples from this talk to open their minds. God famously declares “Come now, and let us reason together.” (Isaiah 1:18). If God is willing to reason with people then we should reason with people. It’s easy when you discover that the facts are on our side.

Surprising Evidence For Biblical Creation

There are two competing explanations for how we got here – Evolution or God.  Both explanations are diametrically opposed to each other so trying to combine the two theories is fruitless.  This talk investigates evidence which clearly contradicts the evolutionary scenario and is consistent with biblical creation.  Evidence will include fossils, carvings, simple statistics and rethinking geologic time in light of recent evidence.

The Ice Age Lake Missoula Flood and Creation Evidence – Dennis Bokovoy @ Woodin Valley Baptist Church
Jun 25 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

LakeMissoula

The Ice Age Lake Missoula Flood and Creation Evidence

Presentation Overview:

  • Giant land features as seen from satellite photography show a network of channels in what is known as the Channeled Scablands of Eastern Washington. These channels were produced by two great floods, the global Genesis Flood and the much smaller Lake Missoula Flood.
  • The Genesis Flood waters draining from the rising continents at the end of the Flood carved all of the river systems of the Earth.
  • The Ice Age was caused by volcanic activity during and after the Genesis Flood and reached its peak about 500 years after the Flood.
  • Near the end of the Ice Age the Clark Fork River drainage system was dammed up by the south advancing Purcell glacier from the continental ice sheet.  Over 500 cubic miles of water was trapped forming Lake Missoula in Montana.
  • The Columbia River was also blocked by a second glacier, the Okanogan.  The Clark Fork Ice Dam was breached – the volume of water released flowed at a rate equal to 10 times the flow of all of the rivers on Earth. This water quickly filled and overflowed the lake formed by the Okanogan Ice dam flowing south up to 400 feet deep.
  • This overflow water spread across Eastern Washington flowing into smaller drainage systems and carving their sides to vertical banks and deepening them to form the channels of the Channeled Scablands.
  • Giant sand bars and other land features were also produced by the action of the huge water flow of the Lake Missoula Flood.
  • Creation Scientists have gained a better understanding of the Genesis Flood from their study of the land features made by the Lake Missoula Flood in the NW states of Montana, Idaho, Washington and Oregon.

DennisBokovoyDennis Bokovoy is a creation scientist, Christian educator, speaker, and author. He enjoys leading creation geology trips and tours and serves on the school board of Horizon Christian in Hood River, Oregon. As a kid growing up in Montana he discovered fossil bones of an Apatosaurus dinosaur and collected 8 feet of dino vertebrae near his grandmother’s home in Melstone, MT. This event influenced both his career and hobby interests. He has collected over a ton of rocks and fossils.

He studied 2 years at Northwest Christian College then transferred to Montana State University for a B.S. in Biology, Education and Industrial Arts at MSC in 1963 and in 1969 earned a M.S. in Geology.

As an educator, Dennis taught Jr. Hi and H.S. biology and geology for 15 years. The highlight of his teaching career was as Professor of Geology at Columbia Gorge Community College for 15 years. He taught college from 1994 to 2009 when he retired. In his 27 years of teaching in public schools and 3 years in a Christian school, he taught both the Scientific Creation and the Evolutionary Viewpoints. His student field trips featured observable evidence for Creation and the Flood.

Dennis is co-author of five Books on National Parks and Monuments. With John Hergenrather, Hood River, OR and Harold Coffin, Mosier, OR Dennis wrote Road Guide to the John Day Area of Central Oregon, published in 2004 by Creation Research Society. Mike Oard, Bozeman, MT joined them to write Road Guide to Yellowstone National Park, published in 2005 by CRS. Later Dennis, John and Mike were joined by Tom Vail, Phoenix, AZ to write three National Park Guides published by Master Books: Your Guide to the Grand Canyon, 2008; Your Guide to Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks, 2010 and Your Guide to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks, 2012.

Dennis and John Hergenrather have guided field trips and tours since 1996 for our local community and for Design Science Association, Portland, OR.

Evidence For The Existence of God – Mike Riddle @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
Jul 24 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

MikeRiddle   MikeRiddleTraining

Evidence for the Existence of God

This talk answers the two strongest arguments Atheists use for not believing in a Creator God.

  1. The Atheists apparent ability to explain all the data we observe without God.
  2. The problem of evil.

In part 1 Mike examines the three possible arguments for the origin of the universe:

  • The universe created itself.
  • The universe has always existed.
  • The universe was created.

In part 2 Mike answers some tough questions:

  • How can we call God good when He allows evil to exist?
  • How do you decide right from wrong (do moral absolutes exist)?
  • Did God create evil?

Life and Information – Dr. Heinz Lycklama @ First Baptist Church of Arlington
Aug 16 @ 9:00 am – 10:00 am

Life and Information

First Baptist Church of Arlington – Sunday School Hour

Dr. Heinz Lycklama brings a message on this topic during the Sunday CellPartsSchool hour. Life consists of material (matter & energy) as well as non-material parts (information). Life requires information, complexity, and design. We discover the similarity in the nature of information, machines and programs in writing systems, computer systems and living systems and come to understand that each requires a design, and therefore a designer.  This similarity helps us to explain why life did not, does not, and will not start from non-life by chance. Science and the Bible agree on this.


Dr. Heinz Lycklama earned a Ph. D. degree in Nuclear Physics from Heinz 4McMaster University in Canada and has worked in the telecommunications and computer software industries for over forty years. He has taught through many books of the Bible and has served as member and Chairman of various Missions Committees as well as Elder/Deacon Boards.

Challenged in his Christian faith by what he was taught in university in the 1960’s, Heinz later developed a series of lectures on Creation vs. Evolution and Christian Apologetics over the years and presented the material in Sunday school classes, to college students, during church services, at Bible Schools, and other venues in Europe, Asia, Africa and North America. With his knowledge of the Bible and science, he has continued to develop and present new material in these subject areas. More on Dr. Lycklama & his lectures at www.heinzlycklama.com/messages.

Life and Its Origin – Dr. Don Johnson @ Cedar Park Church
Aug 20 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

 


Life And Its Origin

The incredible complexity of all life is highlighted by examining the components of a “simple” cell. The computer-controlled protein (including enzymes) manufacturing process illustrates that DNA, RNA, and over 150 proteins must be present and fully functional for life to exist. The natural scenarios (proteins first, DNA/proteins first, and RNA first) origin-of-lifeare analyzed and shown to be totally inadequate, even from the natural sciences. The information systems of life illustrate with certainty that life had an intelligent source. The Biblical basis for life’s origin demonstrates agreement with known science. We are fearfully and wonderfully made!


Don Johnson earned Ph.D.s in both Computer & Information Sciences and in Chemistry. He was a senior research scientist and consultant for over 14 years, andDonJohnson taught 20 years in universities in the US and Europe. Since “retiring” as an APU (Christian university) professor, he has done consulting, speaking, and writing (4 books, including best-selling “Programming of Life,” and several peer-reviewed papers). He has made Christian and secular presentations across the US and on most continents.  His www.4iam.org Christian Website has links to the “Programming of Life” PoL video (over 286,000 on-line views),  several video presentations and printable flyers, as well as links to his two secular science Websites.  For over 20 years he believed, taught, and defended the evolutionary scenarios, until science convinced him of the bankruptcy of those beliefs.

Integrity in Science

AFSC Meeting on August 21st – The 24th meeting of the Forum on Friday, August 21st at 7:00 PM at the Atonement Free Lutheran Church in Arlington, WA. Dr. Don Johnson speaks on the topic “Integrity in Science.” A description of the lecture follows.


Integrity in Science” looks at the impact of unsubstantiated “science” on society and progress from a Christian perspective. This includes a review of life’s computer hardware/software and the required properties of nature’s fine-tuned constants and natural laws, having no naturalistic answers. Since thousands of scientists now acknowledge that Darwinism is Science-watchersincapable of explaining the observations, scenarios for replacing Darwinism as “truth” are evaluated. The viability of intelligent design is examined. Global Warming, publication retractions, and other pertinent issues are discussed. The impact of unsubstantiated “science” on society is explored.

Prerequisites for Life on Earth – Dr. Don Johnson @ First Baptist Church of Arlington
Aug 23 @ 9:00 am – 10:00 am

Prerequisites for Life on Earth

Dr. Don Johnson will bring a message on this topic during the Sunday School hour. After a quick review of the real computers and programs in all life, this POL-Prerequisitestalk considers the properties of nature’s constants and natural laws that are required for life’s informational structures to be incorporated in even the simplest life. With excerpts from a new “Programming of Life – Earth” video, we’ll consider life’s amazing chemicals and their unique properties. Analysis of the probabilities of life’s required component’s properties occurring anywhere in the Universe shows infeasibility by “natural processes,” but shows compatibility with the Bible. Science is shown to be in need of answers, not unsubstantiated speculations.

Amazing Scientific Insights of the Bible – Dr. Don Johnson @ First Baptist Church of Arlington
Aug 23 @ 6:00 pm – 7:15 pm

Amazing Scientific Insights of the Bible

Dr. Don Johnson will bring a message on this topic during the Sunday Evening service. After a brief review of the Biblical basis for studying science ScienceInTheBibleand great scientists, we’ll look at “naturalistic problems” in which Bible insights are amazing, including the origin and conservation of mass and energy and life’s fantastic information complexity. We’ll look at amazing facts that science has recently revealed that the Bible spoke of in such areas as the Earth uniqueness and history, astronomy, biology, and archaeology.  We’ll look at scientific evidence that compares Bible narratives to what is portrayed as “science.”  We’ll also consider statistical probabilities of fulfilled specific prophecies, and ramifications of yet unfilled prophecies.  We’ll also consider the possibility of scientifically verifiable verbal inspiration of scripture.

Programming of Life and Its Prerequisites – Dr. Don Johnson @ Woodin Valley Baptist Church
Aug 27 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Programming of Life and Its Prerequisites

POL-PrerequisitesThis talk is based on the best-selling book, Programming of Life (PoL). After a review of terms related to life’s information, the reality of every cell’s computers and computer programs will be examined, including the coding systems and algorithmic requirements that have no naturalistic explanation. Several difficulties of naturalistic scenarios will be highlighted, including the improbabilities of nature’s parameters necessary for life and randomly forming life’s components, the reality of the fitness decline in each generation, and the lack of any possible undirected mechanism to produce life’s hardware and software. Darwinism asserts that random changes (via DNA mutations) in real biological computer programs sometimes produce better programs, a concept that has no basis in computer science. The impact of promoting as “science” speculation that has no scientific basis will be discussed.

Don Johnson earned Ph.D.s in both Computer & Information Sciences and in Chemistry. He was a senior research scientist and consultant for over 14 years, andDonJohnson taught 20 years in universities in the US and Europe. Since “retiring” as an APU (Christian university) professor, he has done consulting, speaking, and writing (4 books, including best-selling “Programming of Life,” and several peer-reviewed papers). He has made Christian and secular presentations across the US and on most continents.  His www.4iam.org Christian Website has links to the “Programming of Life” PoL video (over 286,000 on-line views),  several video presentations and printable flyers, as well as links to his two secular science Websites.  For over 20 years he believed, taught, and defended the evolutionary scenarios, until science convinced him of the bankruptcy of those beliefs.

Darwinian Pseudo-Science – Dr. Heinz Lycklama

Secular scientists claim that Evolution is a fact. They even go so far as to say “Evolution Explains Everything.” But can this be verified by empirical science? We examine some of the secular science statements made in the last few years in which these scientists propose new natural explanations for 1) the origin of our universe, 2) the origin of first life, and 3) the origin of complex life (Darwinian Evolution). We think of Evolution, Creation, and Intelligent Design when it comes to origins. The doubts that Darwin expressed about his theory more than 150 years ago in his book on “The Origin of Species.” have still not been resolved in favor of Evolution. Secular scientists have now resorted to pseudoscience in their attempts to rescue the Theory of Evolution and explain origins. In this lecture we focus on the pseudoscience put forth by the Neo-Darwinists in the area of the origin of complex life.

Powerpoint slides used in this seminar can be found here [ppt, pdf].

Dinosaurs and the Most-Asked Questions – Dr. Tas Walker @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
Sep 18 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Dinosaurs and the Most-Asked Questions

Why should Christians be interested in dinosaurs? Because kids love dinosaurs, and they wonder from a young age how they fit into the Bible. Also, mdinosaursany people imagine dinosaurs prove the Bible is wrong. In this fascinating presentation you will discover how we know about dinosaurs, when they lived, and what happened to them. You will see how the Bible explains dinosaurs. And in the process you will see how the Bible deals with other big questions about life, the universe and everything. For some, this presentation has answered questions that have been troubling them for years.

He has been involved in the planning, design and operation of power staTas-Walkertions for over 20 years with the electricity industry in Queensland, Australia. He has visited many coal mines in Queensland, for geological assessments of new fuel supplies for power stations. Tas also helped organize conferences including one of the Simulation Society of Australia. One of his contributions has been to develop models for various aspects of the power industry such as the coordinated operation of the system and construction of power stations.

In 1994, Dr Walker returned to university study, and completed a Bachelor of Science majoring in Earth Science, followed by First Class Honors in 1998.

Tas has also set up an internet site about geology and the Bible. A biblical framework of geology leads to a new appreciation of the environments and processes of different geological phases. The site describes the basis of this model and a practical application to the Great Artesian Basin of Australia.

On 18 January 1999, Tas joined the full-time staff of the ministry which is now Creation Ministries International in Brisbane.

Rocks, Fossils & The Age of the Earth

For many, the rocks and fossils speak of evolution and millioRocksFossilsns of years, indicating that the Bible can’t be accepted as written. But the rocks speak about the global Flood of Noah’s time. Learn the story behind the ages of millions of years, and discover evidence that points to the biblical age. This presentation explains why the most momentous event in world history, Noah’s Flood, is the key to understanding our world today. This presentation will strengthen your faith in the Bible and change your outlook on life.

Creation and Evolution: Faith, Facts and Fantasies – Dr. Tas Walker @ First Baptist Church of Arlington
Sep 20 @ 10:30 am – 12:00 pm

 Creation and Evolution: Faith, Facts and Fantasies


Some say belief in evolution is science but belief iBibleOrEvolutionn God is fantasy. Others think evolution has proved the Bible wrong. Discover why facts do not speak for themselves. This message shows how a person’s worldview affects the way they interpret evidence. It shows how the biblical big picture connects with the real world, and answers the big questions in life: What is real? Why am I here? What do I aim for? These ideas affect our families in subtle ways we often don’t realize.

Why The Bible Is Unique – Dr. Heinz Lycklama @ Westgate Chapel
Oct 9 @ 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm

Why The Bible Is Unique

HolyBibleOver300HolyBooks  MoreHolyBooks 


2 Tim. 3:16, All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness.

Religions are based on their holy book(s.) The Christian faith is based on the Bible. Is the Bible just another religious book or is it the Word of God? The Bible claims to be God-breathed. Let us give you seven reasons why we believe the Bible is indeed God’s Word:

  1. Direct Claims of the Bible
  2. Perfect Unity of the Bible
  3. Reliable Transmission of the Bible
  4. Unique Teachings of the Bible
  5. Historical Accuracy of the Bible
  6. Scientific Accuracy of the Bible
  7. Fulfilled Prophecy of the Bible

The Bible is like no other book in the world. It provides many sound evidences and convincing proofs that it is God’s Word. The Bible is authoritative in all matters that it addresses; it is infallible, inerrant, complete and final. It is sufficient for our needs, it will accomplish what it promises, and it provides the assurance of our salvation.

The Floods Came Up and the Rains Came Down – Dr. Larry Vardiman @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
Oct 23 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

The Floods Came Up and the Rains Came Down

OceanMagmaMountainsIn the ‘60s a major discovery was made from soundings of seafloor depth using doppler radar from ships plying the oceans of the world. A 40-thousand mile long mountain chain was found on the bottom of the ocean extending around the globe like a seam on a baseball. It was apparently formed from hot magma being extruded from the earth’s crust into the ocean, cooling, and hardening into solid rock.
OriginOceanWaterBased on this evidence the Plate Tectonics Theory was developed. It is now routinely taught in almost all graduate programs in geology. The theory argues that the crust of the earth is composed of numerous plates separated by cracks through which the magma flowed onto the ocean floor. These plates are measured to be moving slowly across the planet at about the rate of centimeters per year—the approximate rate at which fingernails grow. Along and either side of the cracks between the plates most of our active geology is currently occurring, for example, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and mountain building.
Conventional geologic earth history is built around the conventional plate tectonic theory including the millions of years necessary for evolution to occur. However, in 1994 a new model of earth history called Catastrophic Plate Tectonics was introduced to the young earth creationist community by Steve Austin, John Baumgardner, Russell Humphreys, Andrew Snelling, Larry Vardiman, and Kurt Wise. It has the advantage of explaining the current and historical observations of earth motions and topography in a young-earth time frame and is consistent with the biblical account of the Genesis Flood. In addition, the heat released by the magma into the oceans provides an excellent explanation for the cause of the ice age.


Larry VardimanDr. Vardiman retired from the Institute for Creation Research in 2012 after 30 years of research, writing, teaching, and speaking on creation. Prior to his full-time ministry in creation science he conducted 15 years of field research in cloud physics and weather modification for the U.S. Department of Interior, the U.S. Air Force, and Colorado State University. He obtained his B.S. in Physics from the University of Missouri at Rolla, a B.S. in Meteorology from St. Louis University, and an M.S. and Ph.D. in Atmospheric Science from Colorado State University. He has written over 30 technical articles, 10 books, and many conference papers. He was Director and Editor of the RATE Project, a study on Radioisotopes and the Age of the Earth. For the past 10 years he has been conducting numerical simulations of climate and weather during the ice age. He used conventional research models and data supplied by NASA and NOAA to study storms enhanced by warm oceans heated through catastrophic events of the Genesis Flood. He continues to conduct limited research, writing, and speaking in the Northwest. Dr. Vardiman lives in WA State, is married to Jeannette, a registered nurse, has 4 children, and 6 grandchildren.

Is Distant Starlight A Problem? – Dr. John Byl @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
Nov 20 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

John_Byl   DistantStarlight


Is Distant Starlight a Problem?

If the universe is only 6000 years old, how can we see galaxies apparently billions of light years away? A number of cosmological models have been constructed to solve this problem. In cosmology there is a huge gap between data and theory, since we can observe only a small portion of the universe over a small time interval. Thus any cosmological model needs presuppositions, many of which are unverifiable. Ultimately, cosmological models are assessed in terms of one’s worldview. Any favored cosmological model can overcome any difficulties by inventing suitable ad hoc devices.

We shall briefly examine big bang cosmology and some of its shortcomings. The main focus, however, shall be on various creationist cosmologies, particularly some of the more recent models. These models are based on a variety of different proposed solutions to the starlight problem. Their various strengths and weaknesses will be assessed.


John Byl has a Ph.D. in astronomy from the University of British Columbia. He is Professor Emeritus at Trinity Western University, Langley, BC, where he taught for over 30 years, and was chair of the department of Mathematical Sciences. He has written two books, “God and Cosmos: A Christian View of Time, Space, and the Universe” (2001) and “The Divine Challenge: On Matter, Mind, Math, and Meaning” (2004), as well as numerous articles on science, Christian worldview, and science/religion issues. His blog http://bylogos.blogspot.ca/ promotes a Biblical worldview.

Men, Apes & the Bible – J.D. Mitchell @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
Dec 11 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Men, Apes & the Bible


LucySkeleton2 This talk provides a “big picture” look at the candidates for man’s evolutionary ancestors and the proposed cast of transitions that supposedly allowed man to macro-evolve over a period of nearly four million years from an ape-like ancestor. To explain the secular perspective, Mr. Mitchell will lead the audience on a step-by-step virtual tour of the Human Evolution Display at the San Diego Museum of Man. While not all evolutionists believe in exactly the same story, the San Diego Museum of Man has developed an impressive display that seems very convincing to those who do not understand the presuppositions that support their atheistic paradigm.

A detailed look at the African fossil Australopithecus afarensis (Lucy) and the Laetoli footprints found by Mary Leakey is used by Mr. Mitchell to highlight the vast differences between biblical and secular presuppositions regarding man’s origin and a simple formula is provided at the conclusion that the Christian can use to understand this entire subject utilizing a biblical worldview. The more recently proposed transitional fossils Ida, Ardi and Homo naledi will be used as cases on point to utilize the formula.

JDMitchell-266x300J.D. Mitchell is a registered professional engineer in Oregon and Washington and has a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Washington. He has also completed his Master of Biblical Studies in Biblical Creation Apologetics from Master’s Graduate School of Divinity.

J.D. is Executive Director of the Institute for Creation Science of Oregon, and speaks and writes regarding the creation versus evolution controversy as a part of his creation science ministry (Creation Engineering Concepts).

Evolution’s Four Fatal Flaws – Dr. Heinz Lycklama @ Logos Sanctuary
Jan 2 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

EvolutionAchillesHeels  LucyReconstruction


Description: It has become abundantly clear that evolutionary thinking is not based on scientific evidence. This lecture offers four major challenges to the “theory” of Evolution. 1) (Macro) Evolution has never been observed. It takes a giant leap in faith to get from (micro) evolution, which has been observed, to (macro) evolution. 2) No credible transitional fossils have been identified in the 150 years since Darwin wrote “Origins of Species.” Evolution did not happen. 3) Life can/did not originate from non-life by random chance. Evolution can/will not happen. 4) Evolution is in conflict with the Second Law of Thermodynamics. Evolution in fact is impossible. Evolution is a philosophy and a belief system, not science.


Heinz 4Speaker: Dr. Heinz Lycklama earned a Bachelor’s degree in Engineering Physics and a Ph. D. degree in experimental Nuclear Physics from McMaster University in Canada in 1965 and 1969 respectively. Since then he has worked in the telecommunications and computer software industries at Bell Telephone Laboratories in NJ and at Interactive Systems Corporation in CA.

Being challenged in his Christian faith by what he was taught in university in the 1960’s, Dr. Lycklama has always maintained an active interest in the Creation vs. Evolution controversy. He has developed a series of lectures on Creation vs. Evolution and Christian Apologetics over the years and presented the material in Sunday school classes, to college students, during church services, at Bible Schools, and other venues in Europe, Asia, Africa and North America. With his knowledge of the Bible and science, he has continued to develop and present new material in these subject areas. More on Dr. Lycklama & his lectures at www.heinzlycklama.com/messages.

Evangelicalism’s Postmodern Apostasy: Rising to the Challenge in Our Midst – Eric Barger @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
Jan 22 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

EmergentApostasyToday, in an effort to redefine Christianity, alarming numbers of popular yet apostate “evangelical” leaders known as “The Emerging Church Movement” are abandoning historic and biblical standards.

This unscriptural, even deadly movement is part of the predicted “great falling away” of 2 Thessalonians 2:3 as Emergent leaders now proclaim that the Church has failed in its mission, that doctrine is irrelevant and that the very basis of Christian thinking has always been faulty. In this seminar, Eric defines Emergent thinking and terms, concisely exposing the leaders and errors of the Emergent Church.


EricBarger After spending two decades immersed in the world as a record producer, rock musician, drug addict, and New Ager, Eric Barger is now widely recognized in the area of Christian Apologetics and Discernment Ministry.

He is the author of numerous books, including the best-seller From Rock to Rock, Entertaining Spirits Unaware: The End-Time Occult Invasion (with co-author David Benoit) and Disarming the Powers of Darkness. He has produced dozens of videos detailing various aspects of the Cults, the Occult, World Religions, Current Events, Bible Prophecy, and today’s Entertainment Industry all in the light of a biblical worldview.

After hosting his own weekly radio program heard nationally, Eric now serves as the co-host of Understanding The Times with Jan Markell heard currently on over 800 stations. Through the years Eric has been a featured guest on hundreds of Christian and secular programs.

Through his writing, video productions, media appearances, and the Take A Stand! Seminar series, Eric has sought to refute unscriptural ecumenism, universalism, the curious normalization of Mormonism, Islam, New Age philosophy, and other aberrant religious systems inside Christianity. However, no matter what the topic, the goal has been as our mission motto declares: “to see the Lost Saved and the Church Changed by the Power of Jesus Christ!

Current Challenges To The Church – Eric Barger @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
Jan 23 @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm

In this Mini-Conference on Current Challenges to The Church, Eric brings two seminars on how the church is being challenged by false teaching, and on how we can and must answer these challenges.

ChallengesChurchThe first seminar at 9:00 AM is on The Real Jesus vs. The Counterfeits.

Mormonism, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Christian Science, The New Age Movement – they ALL speak of a “Jesus.” However, no matter how sincere they may be, those following a “different Jesus” are without a Savior and heading for eternal disaster.

This timely message holds important apologetic insight to help you identify the imposters and most importantly, it will help you defend the historic view of the authentic Biblical Jesus.


New Age or Not TITLE SLIDE 12-2015The second seminar at 10:30 AM is on New Age or Not: What Difference Does It Make?

With another major election year looming just ahead, Christians need to weigh whether New Age spiritualism or occult practices matters when it comes to our elected officials. Perhaps we should learn from history just how God dealt with Israel during the reign of evil kings? This is information you won’t hear on the evening news!

Perilous Times and Signs of the Times – Eric Barger @ First Baptist Church of Arlington
Jan 24 @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm

Eric Barger, Founder and President of Take A Stand Ministries, will be with us on Sunday morning, January 24th during the Sunday School hour and the Worship Service.

perilous_times_nowDuring the Sunday School hour at 9:00 AM, Eric delivers a message on Preparing For Perilous Times.

The days ahead may well afford remarkable opportunities to minister to the lost bringing many to Christ. But how will the Church respond? Jesus calls us to “go into all the world” but have we developed an unwavering biblical mindset for future troubled times? Don’t allow the spirit of fear to sidetrack you! Prepare your heart now to be a victor – not a victim – when it counts most.


SignsOfTheTimesDuring the Worship Service at 10:30 AM, Eric delivers a message on Ten Reasons Why Jesus is Returning Soon.

Fulfilled Bible Prophecy is the focus here, in particular the extraordinary volume of direct prophetic fulfillments in modern times.

Consider that 2500 years ago the men of the tribe of Issachar knew the signs around them and how to respond (I Chron. 12:32). Stressing the importance of understanding the times, Jesus Himself chastised the Jewish leaders for an ignorance of the signs in their day (Matt. 16:1-3).

Now, the voluminous nature of the signs indicate that the return of Jesus, our “Blessed Hope,” is surely just ahead! Believers cannot afford ignorance during these exciting days. Do you know the signs?

Amazing Animal Designs – Chris Ashcraft @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
Feb 26 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Amazing Animal Designs That Inspire Technology

 

animalsWhat would the Earth be like without animals? They are indeed a very special part of the creation that provides endless fascination and brings much love into our lives. Previously unknown animals are discovered each year and the complicated world of these creatures has been made clearer by recent scientific discoveries. This presentation will focus on the amazing abilities of animals that are often a source of inspiration to engineers. Humans have long practiced biomimicry in an attempt to glean the ingenuity behind biological designs, and in doing so testify to the creative power of our Father in heaven.


Chris_Ashcraft

Chris 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.

What is the Origin of the Grand Canyon? – Michael Oard @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
Feb 26 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

GrandCanyonThe origin of the Grand Canyon has been a huge mystery for mainstream scientists for over 150 years. This is demonstrated right away in this talk. Then the talk goes into the two creationists hypotheses for the origin of the Grand Canyon. It shows that the post-Flood dam-breach hypothesis, supposedly caused when 2 to 3 lakes ponded east of Grand Canyon by the draining Flood waters, breached several hundreds of years after the Flood. There are many problems with this hypothesis, two of which seem fatal. The second creationist hypothesis is more likely and that is the Grand Canyon was carved late in the Flood by rapid channelized erosion. Evidence for this is presented as well as how each segment of the Grand Canyon can be carved by the draining, channelized Floodwater.

Michael Oard earned his B.S. and M.S. degrees in atmospheric science from the University of Washington. For six years he was a research meteorologist at the University of Washington, and has published several research articles in journals and technical monographs of the American Meteorological Society.

Our Privileged Planet – Dr. Heinz Lycklama @ Cedar Park Church
Mar 2 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

MW-GalaxyAnthropic


Our Privileged Planet

The attributes of planet Earth, and its location in the universe, make human life possible, and the means to observe the universe around us. Our planet (Earth) is uniquely situated in our solar system, our galaxy (Milky Way), and in the universe. We take a look at what Secular scientists have found in their search for signs of life on other planets in the universe.

We conclude that Earth was carefully designed for our well being.  This is based on our analysis of 1) design principles, 2) the precise fine-tuned parameters of the earth, our galaxy, and the universe, 3) the laws of science, nature, and logic, and 4) the probability of finding life on a planet.  The evidence points to an Intelligent Designer and Creator, the God of the Bible.

Are Humans and Apes Cousins? – Mike Riddle @ Bellevue Church of Christ
Mar 17 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

DNA-RNAWe examine what the Bible says about human life. We give some basis background about what is DNA – the code of life. We check to see how similar is human and chimp DNA without the hype. We examine the claim that humans have mostly “junk” DNA, which would imply evolutionary baggage. We check the possibility that apes might evolve into humans by using the only tools it has – chance mutations and natural selection – what would it take to do this?

Battle for the Next Generation – Mike Riddle @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
Mar 18 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

NextGenWhy do so many Christian youth lack confidence in the Bible? The answer: the world has out-smarted the church and is out-educating the church. The world is providing answers to questions students have about life and origins. Is there a solution? Yes! God has given us the instructions for how to equip our youth to stand firm. The church has ignored these instructions. Mike Riddle discusses the following:

A. Three truths from God’s Word.

  1. The Bible teaches that God is the Creator of all things.
  2. The Bible teaches that God determines what is right.
  3. The Bible teaches we should train our children according to God’s ways.

B. The heart of the matter: The battle for the next generation

  • The state of Christian education
  • Knowledge and Hosea 4:6
  • The hard facts
  • The plan of action (2 Timothy 2:2)
  • Isaiah 6:8 (Lord, send me)

Answering Recent Attacks on the Jesus of the Bible – Dr. Phil Fernandes @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
Apr 22 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Answering Recent Attacks on the Jesus of the Bible


HistoricalJesusIn an age of uncertainty, can we still have confidence in the Jesus found in the Bible? Can we trust the New Testament text we have today? How do we know that Jesus of Nazareth was not just another myth or legend? Why aren’t the Gnostic writings in the New Testament? Why were they left out of the New Testament canon? Dr. Fernandes will respond to these recent arguments against the true Jesus of the Bible. He will argue that, contrary to the writings of Bart Ehrman and the wild speculation of critical New Testament scholars, we can trust the New Testament text and its portrait of Jesus. Strong evidence will also be provided that Jesus actually existed—He is not a mere legend that the early church borrowed from pagan myths. Finally, it will be argued that the early church was right to reject adding the Gnostic writings to the New Testament canon.


PhilFernandesDr. Phil Fernandes is the senior pastor of Trinity Bible Fellowship and the president of the Institute of Biblical Defense. Fernandes founded the Institute of Biblical Defense in 1990 to help train Christians in their defense of the faith. He also teaches Bible, philosophy, and world religions at Crosspoint Academy and the Gateway School of Ministry in Bremerton, WA. He has completed doctoral work in both philosophy of religion (Greenwich University) and theological studies (Columbia Evangelical Seminary). He has authored several books dealing with the defense of the Christian faith. Many lectures/debates/sermons are available on his website.

The Geology of Israel – Patrick Nurre @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
May 20 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

The Geology of Israel


TheGeologyOfIsraelDescription: Many people are somewhat familiar with the geology of the Grand Canyon. But did you know that Israel has its version too? It is called, The Grand Canyon of Israel. Everyone knows that Israel is mostly limestone and sandstone, right? Did you know that Israel has a significant amount of volcanic geology too? In my talk on the Geology of Israel, we will explore some of the significant geological formations in Israel and how they relate to the Creation and the Genesis Flood. Israel is a wonderful place to visit for the Biblical history, but it is a tremendous school of learning for study of Biblical Geology too.


patrick nurre 2

Speaker: Patrick Nurre was trained in the secular view of geology. Over the past 40 years he has been actively involved in the Creation/Evolution issue in the field of geology. He has spoken to hundreds of college students, and is a popular speaker at many conventions and home school conferences. In 2005, Patrick created Northwest Treasures to provide opportunities to study geology from a Biblical perspective. In the fall of 2012, he opened the Geology Learning Center, a geology museum/educational center located in Lynnwood, WA. Patrick leads field trips each year to many geological sites including his annual field trip to Yellowstone Park in August.

His web site is at www.northwestrockandfossil.com (Northwest Treasures).

Darwinian Pseudoscience – Dr. Heinz Lycklama @ Rivercrest Community Church
May 22 @ 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm

Darwinian Pseudoscience

HaeckelsEmbryos  WhereAreTheFossils


Description: Secular scientists claim that Evolution is a fact. They even go so far as to say “Evolution Explains Everything.” But can this be verified by empirical science? We examine some of the secular science statements made in the last few years in which these scientists propose new natural explanations for 1) the origin of our universe, 2) the origin of first life, and 3) the origin of complex life (Darwinian Evolution). We think of Evolution, Creation, and Intelligent Design when it comes to origins. The doubts that Darwin expressed about his theory more than 150 years ago in his book on “The Origin of Species” have still not been resolved in favor of Evolution. Secular scientists have now resorted to pseudoscience in their attempts to rescue the Theory of Evolution and explain origins. In this lecture we focus on the pseudoscience put forth by the Neo-Darwinists in the area of the origin of complex life.

Powerpoint slides used in this seminar can be found here [ppt, pdf].

More on Pseudoscience …


Heinz 4Speaker: Dr. Heinz Lycklama earned a Bachelor’s degree in Engineering Physics (1965) and a Ph. D. degree in experimental Nuclear Physics (1969) from McMaster University in Canada. Since then he has worked in the telecommunications and computer software industries at Bell Telephone Laboratories in NJ and at Interactive Systems Corporation in CA – as an individual contributor and in management positions. In 1992 Dr. Lycklama founded Open Systems Technology Associates (OSTA) to offer his technology management consulting services to various start-ups in the high technology industry. In 2013 Heinz founded the Apologetics Forum to help equip believers in the defense of The Faith.

Being challenged in his Christian faith by what he was taught in university in the 1960’s,  Dr. Lycklama has always maintained an active interest in the Creation vs. Evolution controversy. He has developed a series of lectures on Creation vs. EvolutionChristian Apologetics, and Biblical Worldview over the years and presented the material in Sunday school classes, to college students, during church services, at Bible Schools, and other venues in Europe, Asia, Africa and North America. With his knowledge of the Bible and science, Dr. Lycklama has continued to develop and present new material in these subject areas. Information on his messages and presentations can be found at www.heinzlycklama.com/messages.

Evolution’s Four Fatal Flaws – Dr. Heinz Lycklama @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
Jun 24 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Evolution’s Four Fatal Flaws

EvolutionAchillesHeels LucyReconstruction


Description: It has become abundantly clear that evolutionary thinking is not based on scientific evidence. This lecture offers four major challenges to the “theory” of Evolution. 1) (Macro) Evolution has never been observed. It takes a giant leap in faith to get from (micro) evolution, which has been observed, to (macro) evolution. 2) No credible transitional fossils have been identified in the 150 years since Darwin wrote “Origins of Species.” Evolution did not happen. 3) Life can/did not originate from non-life by random chance. Evolution can/will not happen. 4) Evolution is in conflict with the Second Law of Thermodynamics. Evolution in fact is impossible. Evolution is a philosophy and a belief system, not science.

Can You Believe The Bible? – Vince LaPoint @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
Jul 22 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Can You Believe the Bible?


HolyBibleDescription: When the speaker first began to consider the truth of the Bible, he asked two questions: Is the Bible the Word of God? And Is the Bible Still the Word of God (or did it get corrupted along the way)? Our young people still ask these questions as do people who are not familiar with the evidences for Christianity. This talk will explore these questions in a way that we can remember and share with others. The Bible clearly was manually copied time and time again. How did the copyists make sure their copies were accurate? How do we know what the original manuscripts said when we do not have them any more and there are portions of the copies that may have been altered or lost?

Is there extra-biblical support for the Scriptures? Do Archaeology and History support the events recorded in the Bible? What about Biblical Prophecy? Is it accurate? How is Biblical Prophecy different from that of Nostradamus and other infamous prognosticators? And finally, if the Bible is true and lives are miraculously changed by God as the Bible promises, do we find evidence that this is true? Come hear some of the accounts of the almighty God miraculously interacting in the lives of everyday people.


VinceLaPoint Speaker: Vince LaPoint was not raised a Christian. During his upbringing, he was introduced to naturalism, astrology, witchcraft, eastern mysticism, and various forms of organized religion. In school, he pursued math and science and has spent the last 25+ years in the high-tech industry. He is now convinced from the empirical evidence, not just blind faith, that the Bible is the true and reliable Word of God. This message will explore some of the evidence that Vince considered.

Vince now attends Calvary Chapel Eastside in Bellevue, WA and is involved in ministry there. He actively mentors (disciples) young adults, addressing the concerns that our next generation is wrestling with. With his passion for apologetics and creationism, his door is always open for those who come by his place in pairs and you might find him in spiritual conversations in restaurants and other locations. Vince is a member of the Creation Association of Puget Sound. He frequents evolutionist and atheist gatherings to engage in probing dialog. He is an active member of The Gideons International, taking advantage of the opportunities to share the testimonies of God’s work around the world in churches, even as they distribute Scriptures locally and around the world.

Science and Humanism: The Consequences of Bad Ideas – Bruce Barton @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
Aug 26 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Science and Humanism: The Consequences of Bad Ideas


HumanismDescription: Evolutionists charge that creationism has hindered science, and that “no real scientist believes in creation.”  Yet history shows just the opposite: Many of the greatest scientific discoveries have been by scientists who believed in God as Creator.  On the other hand, science based upon evolutionary assumptions has resulted in much wasted research money, and ideas that are now in total disrepute.  Additionally, evolutionary thinking leaves a trail of hopelessness and despair, and ideas that have been devastating to humanity, even resulting in the deaths of millions of people.

Endeavoring to “think God’s thoughts after Him,” as did astronomer Johann Kepler, not only results in more reliable scientific methods and results, but provides us with a positive outlook on life and hope for the future.

In this presentation we show some of the consequences of ideas based upon evolutionary assumptions, and contrast them with the great advances in science made by Bible-believing scientists.


BruceBartonSpeaker: Bruce Barton has degrees in meteorology and theology, with studies in engineering and graduate work in atmospheric sciences. Mr. Barton was an instrumentation engineer in R&D for Weyerhaeuser Company until retirement. He has a broad background as a teacher and speaker to groups of all ages in a wide range of subjects including science and technology, aviation, and Bible topics, particularly apologetics. Bruce has been speaking on the Creation/Evolution controversy for over ten years, especially to homeschool groups. He continues to give seminars and lead field trips for them. Bruce also serves on the Board of Directors for CAPS.

CellPartsDescription: Life consists of material (matter & energy) as well as non-material parts (information). We discover the similarity in the nature of information, machines and programs in writing systems, computer systems, and living systems Each requires a design, and therefore a designer.  This similarity helps us to explain why life did not, does not, and will not start from non-life by chance. Science and the Bible agree on this.

The information and the programs running in the human cell provide evidence that we were created by an Intelligent Being (God) and did not get here through the process of evolution. Living organisms require information, complexity, and design. These all require an intelligent designer.

Why The Bible Is Unique

First Baptist Church of Ferndale, WA – Worship Service

HolyBibleOver300HolyBooks  MoreHolyBooks 


2 Tim. 3:16, All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness.


Description: Religions are based on their holy book(s.) The Christian faith is based on the Bible. Is the Bible just another religious book or is it the Word of God? The Bible claims to be God-breathed. Let us give you seven reasons why we believe the Bible is indeed God’s Word:

  1. Direct Claims of the Bible
  2. Perfect Unity of the Bible
  3. Reliable Transmission of the Bible
  4. Unique Teachings of the Bible
  5. Historical Accuracy of the Bible
  6. Scientific Accuracy of the Bible
  7. Fulfilled Prophecy of the Bible

The Bible is like no other book in the world. It provides many sound evidences and convincing proofs that it is God’s Word. The Bible is authoritative in all matters that it addresses; it is infallible, inerrant, complete and final. It is sufficient for our needs, it will accomplish what it promises, and it provides the assurance of our salvation.

Islam and God’s Judgment in the Last Days – Shahram Hadian @ Lakewood New Hope Community Church of the Nazarene
Sep 22 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

Islam and God’s Judgment in the Last Days

Description: We are seeing Islam take over Europe, and now we are witnessing the unthinkable here in America! Our government, our media, many of our elected officials, and our education system are surrendering to Islam.

But perhaps the most shocking development is the tragic reality of certain Christian leaders and church groups surrendering to Islam! They are blindly promoting the interfaith ecumenical heresy and advocating the invasion of America at the hands of thousands of Muslim refugees, despite well documented risks.

The question is “Why?”

  • Why are so many people deceived by Islam and its true agenda?
  • Why is there such blatant spiritual deception?
  • Could this be a part of God’s judgment?

In this presentation, Shahram will expose Islam as an anti-Christ spirit that is deeply anti-Semitic, and in denial of every major tenet of Christianity. He will also detail Bible prophecy and how it identifies Islam and Islamic nations in the last days. Finally, Shahram will uncover Islam’s end times eschatology, which should be very shocking!


Speaker: Shahram Hadian speaks around the nation with a heart to awaken America, and especially the church. As a Christian pastor and former Muslim, he is deeply grieved over Christian pastors and missional leaders promoting the false gospel of Chrislam in their effort to be culturally sensitive to Muslims.

Shahram was born in Iran and came to America with his family at the age of 7 to escape an oppressive Islamic regime. He is a proud US citizen. He experienced a transformational life change when he committed his life to Jesus Christ in 1999. He has served his local community as a pastor, police officer, teacher and coach and was a candidate for WA State Governor in 2012.

In the past several years, he has spoken to various groups around North America, including legislators, law enforcement, civic groups, churches, and concerned citizens.
