March 21, 2020
Speaker: Rod J. Martin
Topic: Creation/Evolution - A Theological Issue (Not Scientific)
Type: In-house Presentation
Evolution is a direct attack on God’s Word. It is philosophy, not science. The battle is theological, not scientific. This presentation will begin with a survey of the biblical description of God as Creator of heaven and earth. Following this several compromise positions between creation and evolution will be briefly discussed. The presentation will end with a quick look at the offshoots of evolution and a suggested response by the church.
Rod J. Martin has held engineering and management positions in oil & gas, mining, and the electric power industries. His career has taken him from installing offshore oil platforms in the Santa Barbara Channel, to helping develop a pioneering tarsand mine in Northern Alberta, Canada, as well as expanding heavy oil production in California, operating oilfields in Texas, drilling oil wells in Wyoming, surveying for the U.S. Forest Service in Colorado, and managing a coal-fired steam-electric cogeneration plant in the Czech Republic. He holds an M.S. degree in geology, a P.E. degree in petroleum engineering as well as an M.A. and a D.Ed.Min. in biblical counseling. Rod is a registered professional engineer and a certified biblical counselor. His interest in creation science started in 1982 after reading “Evolution: The Fossils Say No!” by Duane Gish.
Title: Exposing the Roots of Evolution by Paul James Griffiths
April 18, 2020
Speaker: Don Kennedy
Topic: California as an Island: A Map, not a Myth
Type: In-House Presentation
The California as an island map gives us a snapshot of the Western United States and Mexico toward the beginning of the ice age. The Grand Canyon has not yet formed, and the uplift of the Western states has not begun. Only two major western mountain ranges have formed: The Rockies and the Wasatch range. The Sierra Nevada range and the coastal range does not appear on the map, and in light of the accuracy of the map in general, we can be fairly confident that this is because the were not yet there.
Why is this important to young earth creationist? This is the smoking gun that shows that the Atlantic Rift, the Sierra Nevadas and coastal range, the western states uplift, and the Grand Canyon, were formed, not millions of years ago, but in historical times.
Most important is that the map stands on its own. Creationists cannot be accused of manufacturing it because it has been around for over four hundred years and is based on sources obviously thousands of years old. Evolutionists have no way to respond to this, except to ignore it or call it a myth. But the accuracy of the map and the details it reveals testify to its validity.
Don Kennedy has been a student of young earth creationism since the '70s. Don graduated UCLA Engineering in 1976 with emphasis on Chemical Engineering. Don has worked 41 years as an engineer at U.S. Borax in Boron, California, mainly as process control engineer. Don led the Antelope Valley Creation Science Association from 2004 to 2008. Don's other interests are Old Testament history, armchair astronomy, playing bass guitar on the worship team, and lately, ham radio. Don and his wife Sharon have three adult children and nine grandchildren.
Title: Darwin, Deism & the Origin of Species by Dominic Statham
May 16, 2020
Speaker: David Dana-Bashian
Topic: 16 Nearly Impossible Issues for Evolutionists to Answer
Type: In-house Presentation
The main objective is to sketch briefly 16 issues in cosmology, astronomy, physics, chemistry, biochemistry, biology, and information that are nearly impossible for evolutionists to give any plausible scenarios, then to claim, by falsification, that evolutionists' proposed solutions, if they exist, to such issues, in which they see a stake, fall woefully short and invariably violate basic, well-known laws of mathematics (including logic), physics, and chemistry (including biology). All such proposals, Darwin's hypothesis aka "evolution" included, should be corrected, set aside, displaced, or abandoned, and their makers held responsible.
