Speaker: Dr. Timothy Standish
Topic: Human & Chimp Genomes: More Different than Expected
Type: Live - In House
Differences between the human and chimpanzee genomes are commonly claimed to be trivial, thus the similarities are cited as profound evidence of common ancestry. But what is the meaning of the numbers that are presented? How are the numbers that have been so widely cited faring as both the human and chimpanzee genome sequences are checked and refined and our understanding of the genome architecture improves? Is this an example of the evidence better supporting common ancestry as we understand more? Or is it an example of more research undermining the claims of Darwinism?
Timothy Standish was born in Sydney, Australia, but grew up in the Far East where his parents served as missionaries. He completed a BS degree in zoology with a chemistry minor and an MS degree in Biology while studying brachiopods at Andrews University in Michigan. At George Mason University, he was awarded a Ph. D. in environmental biology and public policy based on his research into molecular techniques useful for identification and classification of nematode worms.
As an educator Dr. Standish has taught in colleges and universities in the United States, United Kingdom, South Africa, Nigeria, Austria, Kenya and the Philippines. He has also taught public high-school science classes in the United States and currently works closely with science teachers in Christian secondary and tertiary schools.
His publications cover topics ranging from the molecular basis of behavior in crickets, to Intelligent Design and public policy. In addition, he has authored many academic and popular publications dealing with faith and science. Production of films exploring the beautiful and elegant design evident in living things is another area in which he has been active. Interactions between science, faith and public policy are his primary interest at present. Dr. Standish is an active member of his church and holds the rank of Senior Scientist at the Geoscience Research Institute in Loma Linda, California.
Title: Ape-Men: The Grand Illusion by Dr. Terry Mortenson
Dr. Terry Mortenson holds an MDiv and a PhD in the history of geology. He has lectured in over 25 countries and formerly served for 26 years with Campus Crusade for Christ in the United States and in Eastern Europe. He now serves as an author, speaker, and researcher with Answers in Genesis.
In this illustrated presentation featuring Dr. Terry Mortenson, you will see that the scientific evidence does not stand up to scrutiny and that Christian leaders trying to fit ape men into Genesis are seriously mistaken. The gospel importance of the supernatural creation of Adam and Eve is then made clear. See for yourself that the idea of ape men is a grand illusion, deceiving millions and undermining both the clarity and authority of Scripture and the gospel message itself.
Please note that there will be no meeting in December.
The January meeting will be held on the second Saturday of the month in order to welcome our special in-house guest speaker...Frank Sherwin from The Institute of Creation Research.
January 11, 2020
Speaker: Frank Sherwin from ICR
Topic: Parasites, Poison and Plants
Type: Live In-House Presentation
A recurring question Christians and non-Christians have is the problem of predation. What were parasites before the Fall? Was there venom in snakes? What was the purpose - if it existed - in God's very good creation? Frank Sherwin will address these valid questions for a creation science perspective.
Frank Sherwin received his bachelor's degree in biology from Western State College, Gunnison, Colorado, in 1978. He attended graduate school at the University of Northern Colorado, where he studied under the late Gerald D. Schmidt, one of the foremost parasitologists in America. In 1985, Mr. Sherwin obtained a master's degree in zoology. He published his research in the peer-reviewed Journal of Parasitology. He contributes his scientific expertise to a variety of ICR's publications on creation science. He is the author of The Ocean Book and Guide to Animals, and co-author of The Fossil Record: Unearthing Nature's History of Life and The Human Body: An Intelligent Design, and is one of ICR's most sought-after speakers.
