Has Science Now Buried God? – Dr. Heinz Lycklama @ Edgewood Bible Church
May 11 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Has Science Now Buried God?


Description: This talk is based on Dr. John Lennox‘s book, God’s Undertaker: Has Science Buried God?” According to many modern commentators, science has now explained all that we observe in the universe and God is no longer needed. We are told that atheism is the only intellectually tenable position, and any attempt to invoke God as the explanation impedes progress in science. Lennox asks the critical question whether science points to atheism? He shows that theism fits more comfortably with  science than atheism. Science is limited in the scope of its explanations. We conclude that this is not a debate between science and religion, but a debate between two very different worldviews.


Speaker: 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.

Description: In “The Death of TruthDr. Fernandes explains how many of the so-called thinkers of Western Civilization abandoned the belief in the existence of the Christian God. This has led to the abandonment of truth and morality as well. Dr. Fernandes shows how the rejection of God in the West has led to: Darwinian evolution, the rejection of absolute truth, moral relativism, post-modernism, the increase in immorality, political correctness, and the diminishing in the value of human life.


Phil Fernandes

Speaker: 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.

Evolution: What Darwin Didn’t Know – Chris Ashcraft @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
Jun 22 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Evolution: What Darwin Didn’t Know

Description: What have we learned about evolution since 1859 when Darwin published his theory on natural selection? At the time, little was known about the cell, and nothing was known of genetics. Are Darwin’s “numerous successive slight modifications” able to produce the irreducible complexities found in living systems?

This presentation reviews the evidence for and against evolution from both living populations and fossils. We will also examine the processes of speciation, mutation, and selection. When the observations are interpreted correctly, we see clear support for the Biblical teachings that various kinds of plants and animals were created in the beginning.


Chris_Ashcraft

Speaker: 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 in 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.

Mini-Conference on Biblical Apologetics – Mike Riddle @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
Apr 28 @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm

Mini-Conference on Biblical Apologetics


Description: In this Mini Conference on Saturday morning from 9:00 AM until 12 noon, Mike Riddle brings two seminars on the theme of Biblical Apologetics to teach how to be a 1 Peter 3:15 Christian (have a ready answer). The first set of challenges concerning the Bible are answered in the first seminar at 9:00 AM:

  • How could Adam name all the animals in one day?
  • How could Noah fit all the creatures on the Ark?
  • How could the first three days be literal days if the sun was not created until day four?
  • Adam didn’t physically die when he ate the fruit, therefore Genesis is just referring to spiritual death.
  • Carbon-14 proves fossils are older than 6,000 years.

The second set of challenges concerning design and complexity in human life are answered in the second seminar at 10:30 AM:

  • The incredible human body
  • “Junk” DNA
  • The 2% difference between chimpanzees and humans
  • The amazing human genome
  • Natural selection

There will be an extended time for Q&A after the second seminar.
