It's Time to do Biology As If Darwin Had Never Been Born | Dr. Randy Guliuzza
This lecture will introduce you to a groundbreaking new model called continuous environmental tracking (CET) that explains how organisms adapt. It is the first fully organism-focused, design-based explanation of adaption to be developed by any organization. Christians should know that the latest scientific research is fully on the side of a design-based explanation of adaptation.... and evolutionists are trying to force-fit it into their theory.

Some Intelligent Design advocates and creationists still see organisms as having been designed in part by a Designer and in part by nature, but there's no scientific reason for this. CET brings clarity and eliminates the mysticism inherent in all selection-based notions. Properly identify the true cause of organisms' dramatic capacity to self-adjust to different environments and you are on your wary to the most powerful argument for a beneficent Intelligent Designer consistent with the God of the Bible.

Fresh Fossils from Four Continents | Dr. Brian Thomas
Have you heard about the blood vessels from dinosaur bones? It turns out that's just the beginning of fresh features from all kinds of fossils. In this presentation, Dr. Thomas explains how we can know that these proteins are relatively young and how exciting new finds fit with the Bible's history of the world.

Engineered Adaptability | Dr. Randy Guliuzza
Psychological research shows that humans in every culture perceive designed features and naturally infer they had designers. If this is the case, then the persuasive power in life's designs is an enormously underused gift from God in apologetic defenses. Design-based explanations of creature features given from an engineer's perspective bring scientific clarity to apologetics discussions by demystifying fallacious Darwinian origins explanations.

If you can properly identify the cause of an organism's dramatic capacity to adapt - better yet, self-adjust - to different environments, you're on your way to the most powerful argument against death and survival-driven naturalistic evolution. This strategy points to beneficent Intelligent Designer consistent with the God of the Bible.

How to Understand Design in Nature and Best Explain it to Others | Dr. Randy Guliuzza
What's the best explanation for the design found in living things? This question is at the heart of the creation-evolution dispute. You can defeat the evolutionist's "illusion of design" argument. Use the approach the Bible says will activate a living conscience by starting with His "clearly seen" purpose and exquisite fit for all of life. These are always characteristics of real design.

Great Answers to Three Key Questions About Origins | Dr. Randy Guliuzza
What happens when a progressive, old-earth advocate, an evolutionary creationist, and a young-earth, Intelligent Design creationist square off in a challenging forum moderated by acclaimed apologist Sean McDowell? They will face three key questions about origins.

1. How do you interpret and understand Genesis 1 and 2?
2. What is your take on Darwinian Evolution and its compatibility with the Christian faith?
3. Are you open to the natural world pointing to design? Why or why not?

You could be asked these same basic questions by a coworker, your next-door neighbor, or the person worshipping next to you at church. Can you respond concisely with targeted, biblically consistent answers? Are you informed on the exciting, groundbreaking science supporting Intelligent Design? Come and enjoy a whiteboard talk that will prepare you with the biblical and scientific tools to answer your friends with confidence.


(both the 8:30 and 10:30 services are the same presentation by Dr. Guliuzza, you can attend one, the other, or both if you desire)

And He Rested on the Seventh Day | Miss Emily Steele
Evolutionary science says the world came about by random chance and mutations while God's Word says it was created intentionally by a loving Creator in 6 literal days. But where does the scientific evidence lead and does this issue even matter to us living in the 21st century? Join us to discover scientific evidences of designed engineering in our world as we examine how creation proclaims that our world came about by an act of work by our Creator, Jesus Christ.

God Loves Science Too! | Miss Emily Steele
Do you love science?! So does God - our genius and creative Maker! Open up Scripture to investigate the any references to science, nature, and creation that are in the Bible and what these passages teach us about our universe and Jesus our Creator. (Romans 1:20) This session will also introduce you to several founds of modern science who made amazing discoveries because they believed God's Word and conducted science from a Biblical worldview.

(both the 8:30 and 10:30 services are the same presentation by Miss Steele, your children can attend one, the other, or both if you desire them to)
