What’s the connection between the Bible’s history and spiny plant fossils buried deep in the fossil record? Well, from a biblical perspective, thorns arose after the first humans sinned, at the time called “the Fall”. Therefore, these plants with thorns must have lived—and been fossilised—after the Fall. However, according to conventional geology, these fossils are in so-called Devonian rocks, which are allegedly over 360 million years old. Does this mean that the Bible’s history regarding thorns is wrong? No, the problem is that conventional geology ignores how the global flood of Noah profoundly affected earth’s sedimentary rock record. Such a [More]

One of the biggest mysteries in earth history is what caused the extinction of the dinosaurs. There are over 100 theories, including the suggestion that dinosaurs suffered from slipped discs, shrinking brains or chronic constipation. The most popular idea is that a meteorite hit the earth and caused dramatic changes in earth’s climate, which led to the demise of the dinosaurs. However, even though this story is often repeated as fact, many scientists don’t believe it. For instance, in their book The Great Dinosaur Extinction Controversy, two evolutionary scientists explain how the meteorite idea has become a new dogma that [More]

One of the remarkable things about the geologic record is that blankets of sediments cover vast areas of the continents. In his book, The Nature of the Stratigraphical Record, evolutionary geologist Professor Derek Ager marvelled at the way sedimentary layers extended for thousands of kilometres, even across continents. He was particularly impressed with the chalk beds that form the famous White Cliffs of Dover in Southern England, as these trace all the way to Turkey and Egypt. The strata exposed in the walls of the Grand Canyon provide another example. Some of these sedimentary formations extend thousands of kilometres across [More]

How would our view of dinosaurs change if scientists found carbon 14 in their bones? Well, a group of geophysicists claimed to have discovered exactly that—carbon 14 in dinosaur bones! This is indeed a shocking proposal for those who believe that the last dinosaurs died out 65 million years ago, because carbon 14 decays so fast that it could not possibly survive that long. There should not be one atom of carbon 14 present in dinosaur bones, if they really are as old as is usually claimed. After going to great lengths to rule out contamination, the researchers concluded that [More]

Dr. Hovind gives a lecture to an anthropology class on the creationist viewpoint of origins.
Multimedia Presentation by Chris Ashcraft Apologetics Symposium Cedar Park Church, Bothell WA September 13th, 2017 The microscopic world was a previously invisible and unknown realm of the creation. But through molecular studies and modern technologies, science has revealed that the living cell is operating at a level of technological sophistication far beyond anything devised by man. This presentation will highlight some of the most amazing things that God has made. This formerly unseen part of creation provides testimony of His glory and clear refutation of Darwinism. Within each and every organism reside bio-mechanical systems and molecular machines, which provide unmistakable [More]
Multimedia Presentation by Dr. Keith Swenson Apologetics Symposium Cedar Park Church, Bothell WA October 4th 2017 Noah’s Flood left the entire earth biologically devastated. Creationists believe that over the tens, hundreds and thousands of years following the Flood, living organisms recovered, eventually producing the ecosystems seen on the modern earth. But is such a belief reasonable? Is the biota really that resilient? And if so, by what ecological mechanisms could such remarkable transformation take place? Since there is no detailed information on biological changes which transpired following the Flood, creationists must look elsewhere for information. One source is the study [More]
Multimedia Presentation by Apologetics Symposium Cedar Park Church, Bothell WA November 1st, 2017 We see stars and galaxies that are so far away, it seems that their light would need a long time to get here—in some cases, up to billions of years. Doesn’t this disprove the book of Genesis, which says that the heavens and Earth were created merely thousands of years ago? No, it doesn’t. In this talk, Spike Psarris will discuss the ”LTT” (light travel time) issue, showing how this seemingly straightforward question relies on multiple assumptions being true—and at least some of them are false. Furthermore, [More]
If evolution was true, the further back into history we look, evidence should show a gradual decline in man’s intelligence. Science shows otherwise. Man, created in God’s image, has always been intelligent.

He said that the transitional forms would be found in the fossil record, even though none had been found. Have 158 years of science discoveries shown the “missing links”?

Multimedia Presentation by Chris Ashcraft Apologetics Symposium Cedar Park Church, Bothell WA May 31, 2017 The origin of life remains the theory of evolution’s most significant obstacle. More than 150 years after Darwin published his theory, and following exhaustive efforts, evolutionists are no closer to solving the riddle of how life began. Despite countless attempts using every conceivable condition, biochemists have been unable to produce genetic information (DNA) and/or proteins in a simulated natural environment and thereby show how even the simplest cell could have formed without intelligent design. This presentation will examine the origin of life and illustrate that [More]
