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 evidence of intelligent design. Although this world was unknown to Darwin and his contemporaries, modern day evolutionists hold resolute that this remarkable complexity developed through purely natural processes. Audience: 6th grade through adult. About the Speaker: Chris Ashcraft is a Christian educator employed as high school science teacher at Cedar Park Christian Schools. Chris has also worked in plant biotechnology. He was a research technician at the Cotton Fiber Production Laboratory at Texas Tech University, then at the Plant Transformation Facility at Oklahoma State University, and lastly was the Plant Transformation Specialist for EDEN Bioscience in Bothell Washington . He obtained a Bachelor of Science in biology from Wayland Baptist University in 1989, a Master of Science in biology from Texas Tech University in 1996, a Master of Education from the University of Washington in 2008, and a Master is Teaching Math and Science from Seattle Pacific University in 2012. Chris moved from research science into the teaching profession to serve God in Christian education. His decision was motivated by the impact that secular science is having on people of faith. Today, close to 50% of Christian students lose their belief in God while attending secular schools. This tendency could be lessened if the Church was better equipped to defend the authority of Biblical teachings (1 Peter 3:15). To be prepared for these challenges, it is important that Churches provide regular educational programs on creation and other Bible apologetics.
