James Ussher and the History of Bible Chronology – Paul F. Taylor @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
Oct 20 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

James Ussher and the History of Bible Chronology


Description: Paul Taylor, the Director of the Mount St. Helens Creation Center, speaks on Ussher and his legacy. Ussher‘s famous Annals of the World still has a major impact on creation studies today. However, it is fashionable for modern Christians – even some creationists – to join evolutionists in disparaging Ussher‘s legacy. This biographical talk explains Ussher’s intellectual and theological background, and shows the depth of his research and ideas – sufficient depth that we should still accept much of his findings today.


SpeakerPaul 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 the Directors of the Mount St Helens Creation Center. Paul is married to Geri, and they have five children between them.

Secrets of the Rocks – Patrick Nurre @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
Nov 17 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Secrets of the Rocks


Description: If you have never been a rockhound, you are missing out on more than collecting pretty rocks. Rocks hold some very interesting and wonderful secrets in God’s creation. During his presentation, Patrick will take us on a journey to explore these secrets. You will discover things that even the most experienced geologist has missed. Your faith will be strengthened and you will come away with some “rock solid” apologetics you can share with your friends.

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).

When Scientists Ignore Science – Mark Champneys @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
Dec 8 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Entropy – When Scientists Ignore Science


Description: The Law of Increasing Entropy is one of the foundational scientific laws of the universe.  Its principle profoundly affects all existence, but particularly living systems.   Entropy is a concept that concerns the spontaneous arrangement of things–that is, the arrangement of anything.  Atoms, photons, playing cards, marbles, informational data bits… nucleotides… anything in large numbers.  The law says that when an arrangement is spontaneously random, “mixedupness” (disorder) must always increase.  Indeed, the fact of increasing entropy attests to the arrow of time for any phenomenon. Everything gets more randomized over time, because more random is more probable than less random (in the absence of intelligent activity).  What does this law have to do with evolution?  Everything!  It means that a scientific law has already falsified a theory that is wishfully hoping that random mutations can mysteriously conjure up fantastically improbable biological arrangements.  Neo-Darwinism flies in the face of established science.

So how do evolutionist scientists defend against this hard science?  Incredibly, they opt to simply dismiss it.   They offer a pat talking point excuse, and then move on without explanation–prioritizing theory above law.  But hold on!  We’re going to go through the argument in detail to dismantle such excuses.  Mark Champneys, non-scientist producer of Evolution Demolition and Moment of Truth videos, will give you a conceptual understanding of the Law of Increasing Entropy that lay people can follow.  We’ll talk about the history of the thermodynamic and mathematical discoveries that confirmed Increasing Entropy (ironically in Darwin’s day).  We’ll explain the application of the Law to daily life, and to living systems in particular, and we’ll survey the arguments on both sides so that you will be prepared to have a discussion with an evolutionist about entropy.  Entropy is powerful!

 

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 hundreds to Jesus.

Evolution’s Achilles’ Heels – Dr. Rob Carter @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
Jan 26 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

 


Description: This is the title of CMI’s groundbreaking new book and documentary. Unlike anything CMI has ever done before, we interviewed 15 PhD scientists and asked them to list the fatal flaws of evolution, according to their own areas of expertise. Instead of our traditional approach of defending the Bible, this time we put the evolutionists on the defensive and make them answer the most difficult questions we could think of. In this introductory talk, Dr. Carter will summarize the major issues for the evolutionist three critical areas: natural selection, genetics, and the origin of life. This is powerful information that you do not want to miss!


SpeakerDr Carter was converted to Christ at an early age, but did not know what to do with the theory of evolution. He always knew what he wanted to believe, but had no way to express what he was thinking and no evidence to support his views. In his freshman year of college, he was exposed to the information for creation for the first time and soon after adopted it as his modus operandi. He says he felt a tremendous joy when he realized his science and his religion were no longer at odds. This joy (and, he says, Creation magazine and the Journal of Creation) enabled him to get through the in-depth evolutionary training of his undergraduate and graduate programs with his faith intact.

He obtained a BS in Applied Biology from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 1992. He then spent four years teaching high school biology, chemistry, physics and electronics before going to the University of Miami to obtain his PhD in Marine Biology. He successfully completed this program in 2003 with a dissertation on “Cnidarian Fluorescent Proteins.” While in Miami, he studied the genetics of pigmentation in corals and other invertebrates, designed and built an aquaculture facility for Caribbean corals, performed well over 500 SCUBA dives, many of them at night, and licensed a spin-off product of his research (a patented fluorescent protein) to a biotech company.

He is currently a senior scientist and speaker for CMI-USA in Atlanta, Georgia, where he lives with his wife, Leanne, and children and is currently researching human genetics and other issues related to biblical creation.

Genetics, High Tech Cell & Y-Chromosome Noah – Dr. Rob Carter @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
Jan 27 @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm

Mini Conference on Genetics


Description:In this Mini Conference on Saturday morning from 9:00 AM until 12 noon, Dr Carter brings two seminars on Genetics. This is based on the latest research findings on DNA in the human genome – powerful information that you won’t want to miss! There will be an extended time for Q&A after the second seminar.


 The first seminar at 9:00 AM is on the The High-Tech Cell. The human genome is anything but simple. In fact, it is a super-complex computer operating system that far exceeds anything created by humans to date. New revelations about how it works have surprised us, and the complexity of the code is nothing short of astounding. The genome, perhaps more than anything else, defies naturalistic evolutionary theory.

 The second seminar at 10:30 AM is on Y-Chromosome Noah.
There is no specific reason in evolutionary theory to predict a single male ancestor for the human race, but he certainly existed. This single ancestor is also a direct prediction of the biblical text. By analyzing the 1000 Genomes Y chromosome database, it is possible to conclude that ‘Y Chromosome Noah‘ lived in the biblical time frame, in the Middle East.

SpeakerDr Carter was converted to Christ at an early age, but did not know what to do with the theory of evolution. He always knew what he wanted to believe, but had no way to express what he was thinking and no evidence to support his views. In his freshman year of college, he was exposed to the information for creation for the first time and soon after adopted it as his modus operandi.
