Join us for our June DSA meeting, where Brent Carter will show us the lessons God can teach us from the catastrophes in the earth’s geological past!

We are all familiar with laboratory experiments in High School and College that made for fun, exciting learning and were sometimes very catastrophic.  So how about life experiments that are challenging, educational, difficult, and very REAL? This presentation will focus on connecting Biblical events and the geological results and how God challenges us to learn from them.  Brent Carter will also have many interesting fossils from Idaho, Oregon, and the East Coast to illustrate these important lessons.

Brent Carter graduated from Oregon State University with a bachelor of science in Geology and minor in Civil Engineering. He began his professional career with the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation soon after graduation and continued in successively responsible positions for 42 years, retiring as Chief Geologist of the Pacific Northwest Region.  His responsibilities included complex geotechnical, exploration, instrumentation, seismotectonic, ground water, and hazardous waste programs of field investigations.  He also participated in and directed underwater studies of dams and their appurtenances throughout the contiguous Unites States and Alaska. He has also had the opportunity to give numerous technical presentations on varied geotechnical and structural underwater inspection/documentation topics to professional organizations throughout the United States.

Brent Carter helped found Foundations In Genesis Idaho (FIGI) and served as Chairman for many years, giving lectures and leading field trips, using his expertise to explain the geological data within a biblical framework.
