J.D. Mitchell argues that Christian laypersons can have the ability to understand the superiority of Creation Science over Secular Naturalism by obtaining a foundational knowledge of paleontology based on biblical presuppositions. The technical basis for the talk is largely based on his findings at the John Day Fossil Beds in Central Oregon. He has spent a number of years since 2006 researching about the area and its fossils. During that time he developed a hypothesis attempting to explain the paleontological finds of the area based upon biblical presuppositions and according to the worldwide flood described in the Bible.
In this PowerPoint presentation J.D. Mitchell discusses several of his findings concerning the John Day Fossil Beds along with a list he has developed of “Eighteen Paleontology Facts.” He compares the presuppositions of secular paleontology with those of biblical paleontology and looks at what impact these premises had on the early fossil discoveries of the John Day area. Mitchell demonstrates the importance of beginning with the biblical presuppositions in order to stay true to God, our Creator.
