Seminar by Chris Ashcraft Apologetics Symposium Cedar Park Church, Bothell WA March 8th, 2017 Secular geologists have rejected Biblical history and assert that there has been no global flood as described in Genesis. But vast quantities of fossils and sedimentary rock provide a monumental testimony to this historical event and God’s recent judgment. Is the worldview of these geologists causing them to “deliberately ignore that the world was deluged with water and perished” (2 Peter 3:3-6)? This presentation provides the Biblical answer to the fossil record and an encouragement for Christians to trust in the Bible as authoritative on early [More]
Seminar by Vince LaPoint Apologetics Symposium Cedar Park Church, Bothell WA April 5, 2017 The Bible says that in latter days, people will turn away from the truth and believe myths instead. Why would someone willingly exchange the truth in for a lie? Answer Evolution prepares us to respond to those who believe in evolution. We will consider some recent evolutionary myths and understand how a person’s worldview affects what information we believe and what we reject. We will review definitions of evolution and science and then we apply these definitions to examples that are commonly brought up as evidence [More]
An evolution-propagandizing illustrated children’s book is drawing praise from the secular community and currently ranks as a best seller on Amazon.com. “Annabelle & Aiden: The Story Of Life” is a 26-page children’s book that was published last month. Advertised as an “inspirational storybook” that will help kids “gain a basic understanding of evolution,” the book walks readers through the history of life according to Charles Darwin. Featuring a “wise owl” who describes evolution to two young girls named Annabelle and Aiden, the book proselytizes evolution using rhyming text and whimsical illustrations.

Some people think that evolution has nothing to do with an individual’s philosophical outlook. But atheism can’t exist without evolution! The question of origins has only two possible answers, and for atheists there is only one choice.

Many people think that Charles Darwin first thought of the idea of natural selection. However, others prior to Darwin described the concept, although they sometimes used slightly different terminology. For instance, Carl Linnaeus, the creationist ‘father of taxonomy’ wrote of a ‘struggle for survival’ in nature. Similarly, James Hutton wrote about the concept of natural selection. Probably the most influential character was Edward Blyth, an English chemist and zoologist who wrote major articles on natural selection two decades before Darwin published the Origin of Species. Darwin differed in trying to use the concept of natural selection to promote the idea [More]

Some evolution-believing Christians have declared that the theory of evolution is compatible with the Christian faith. Can evolution be blended with the Bible? This episode takes a close look at the damage this kind of thinking has inflicted on the church, Christian theology and the average person’s perception of God. The Creation Magazine LIVE!

Seminar by Dr. Heinz Lycklama Apologetics Symposium Cedar Park Church, Bothell WA February 19th, 2015 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 [More]
‘Living Fossils’ are characterized as creatures found in the fossil record (supposedly millions of years old) that are seemingly identical to creatures living today. This is a thorny issue for evolutionists since Darwin proposed his evolutionary hypothesis. The evidence of ‘massive change over time’ is dwindling rapidly.

How much time would evolution need in order to make a mouse the size of an elephant? Since this kind of evolution supposedly occurs too slowly for biologists to observe, one place to look for answers is in the fossil record. But in order to answer this particular research question, a team of evolutionary biologists made some large assumptions. The group published what amounts to a circularly-reasoned argument in a peer-reviewed journal.1 They estimated the maximum rate of evolution to achieve the most extreme change in mammal sizes. To do this, however, they had to first assume that small changes [More]

This episode summarizes some of the serious problems that arise in trying to fit evolution with Genesis that even atheists can see.

‘Genesis was written so that simple people could understand it’. For people who hold this view what they usually mean is, ‘God really used evolution, but evolution is too hard to communicate to people who lived long ago, so Moses wrote about how God created in 6 days.’ However, today evolution is communicated to children through critically acclaimed children’s books. This begs the question: if God really did create over millions of years couldn’t Moses have written it that way? Related content • Should Genesis be taken literally?

Refuting Evolution is a powerful, concise summary that explains where the common ‘evidences’ used to promote evolution in textbooks are wrong, while at the same time showing how creation is better supported by scientific observations. It will stimulate much discussion and help students and teachers think more critically about the creation/evolution debate, particularly the often overlooked differences between operational and historical science and how they relate to the topic of origins.

Research in recent years by leading (evolutionist) geneticists has revealed catastrophically high mutation rates in humans. This would be a good thing if mutations really cause upward evolution. Instead the human race is plunging toward extinction. Based on data from genetics humans could not have been evolving for millions of years, we would already be extinct.

In some parts of Africa, it is actually an advantage to have mutated, oddly-shaped red blood cells. This condition, known as sickle cell anemia, is usually a disadvantage, but, ironically, it can actually help protect someone from malarial infection because a sickled red blood cell is less appetizing for the malaria parasite. Many people mistakenly view this sort of change as an example of evolution in action—because a mutation in DNA has made people better adapted to their environment. But if microbes really did turn into mankind—which is what evolution teaches—this would require the addition of new DNA information to [More]
In nature documentaries and science text books, one often hears about creatures that arrived at their body plan very early in evolutionary history and have not made any real changes since that time, supposedly millions of years ago. These are called ‘living fossils’—like the coelacanth and the Wollemi pine. This phenomenon is known as stasis, things staying pretty much the same. And it turns out that pretty much every animal in the entire fossil record appears suddenly and shows this same history of stasis. This was not predicted by evolution! A more recent and radical theory called “Punctuated Equilibrium” recognises [More]
In school we are taught that ‘Mutations + Natural Selection = Evolution’, but do genetic mutations really help evolution? Changes in DNA are supposed to provide the new functions that natural selection ‘chooses’ leading to the evolution of simply organisms into more complex ones. However, leading geneticists agree that mutations lead to extinction, not evolution into something better. This episode features portions of an interview with former evolutionary geneticist Dr John Sanford.

At a forum on depression a young man said, “I think some people may have an inability to cope and maybe, this might sound a bit extreme, that might be Darwinian theory, the Darwin theory of survival of the fittest. Maybe some of us aren’t meant to survive, maybe some of us are meant to kill ourselves.” Now why did this young man think human life has such little value? Perhaps he’d heard people like Oxford Professor Dr Peter Atkins who said, “We are just a bit of slime on the planet.” Likewise, psychologist Susan Blackmore said, “If you really [More]
