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.

Sunday Messages at FBCA on April 26th, 2015 – Carl Kerby @ First Baptist Church of Arlington
Apr 26 all-day

 

Carl Kerby, Founder and President of Reasons For Hope, spoke at First Baptist Church of Arlington (FBCA) on Sunday, April 26th:
• Sunday School hour at 9:00 AM – What About … Fossils!
• Morning Service at 10:30 AM – Becoming Bold: Know it, Live it, Share it!
• Evening Service at 6:00 PM – Evangelism 101: 10 things you can learn about Evangelism from an Atheist.

What About … Fossils! – This entertaining talk challenges the belief that the fossil record supports the teaching of millions of years. 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.

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

ed-neeland   Cambrian

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.

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. John and Dennis formed Creation Encounter LLC in 2008. Their website CreationEncounter.com includes their current tour descriptions with online registration for 1- 4 day trips and week-long National Park Tours.

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 – Dr. Don Johnson @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church

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. The links for Book/video/impact descriptions are available at: www.programmingoflife.info , http://www.amazon.com/Programming-Life-Donald-E-Johnson/dp/0982355467.

Sep 6 @ 9:00 am – 10:00 am

Fundamentals of the Faith

A Sunday School class on Fundamentals of The Faith (FoF) is starting on Sunday September 6th, 2015. The class uses the Fundamentals of The Faith Workbook developed at Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, CA. Heinz Lycklama will be teaching the class in the church sanctuary. New and mature believers, as well as those investigating the truth of Christianity, are encouraged to attend. There will be something for each participant in this class.

The Workbook provides thirteen lessons that blend basic biblical truths with personal obedience and service. These classes enable believers to grow in their understanding of biblical truths. With topics ranging from the character of God to church participation, it’s an ideal study for discipling new believers or returning to the basics of what it means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ. You can use these thirteen lessons to firmly establish and sincerely practice your faith.

ThinkBiblically
One of Dr. John MacArthur’s messages is provided as background information for each of the lessons. You can listen to them online; access to that Information is provided for convenience.

13 Lessons to Grow in the Grace and Knowledge of Jesus Christ:

  1. Introduction to the Bible
  2. How to Know the Bible
  3. God: His Character and Attributes
  4. The Person of Jesus Christ

Darwinian Pseudo-science – Dr. Heinz Lycklama @ Edgewood Bible Church

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.

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).
