Seminar by Dr. Kurt Wise
Seattle Creation Conference May 31, 2014
Woodin Valley Baptist Church, Bothell WA.
Romans 1:18-20 indicates that God illustrated His invisible attributes in the physical world. Turning this concept around, it is possible to explain many features of the physical world as existing to be illustrations of the invisible attributes of God. Applied to biology, this hypothesis explains many of the major characteristics of the biological world (e.g. beauty, disparity, nested hierarchy, diversity, unity, language, etc.) that are not at all or poorly explained by evolutionary theory.
