Impact Vertical Tectonics Flood Model – Expanded

Michael Oard  •  September 17th, 9:00am to 11:30am

Creation scientists have proposed three possible mechanisms for the Flood. The impact-vertical tectonics model is composed of two submodels: asteroid or comet impacts followed by vertical tectonics. Michael Oard favors this one because impacts are consistent with the solar system cratering record and provide enough energy for a global flood. They can easily explain the 40 days and nights of rain. They can explain […]

Creation Mysteries of the Gorge

Come with us Saturday, August 6th, and discover the Creation Mysteries of the Columbia Gorge!  We’ll take several short hikes, and collect cobbles transported 400 miles by Noah’s Flood.  We’ll also find some petrified wood.  In some places this wood is only charcoaled and is still burnable, even though it is supposed to be 15-16 million years old! On this […]

Archbishop Ussher and Biblical Chronology

Paul Taylor  •  July 16th, 9:00am to 11:30am
Archbishop Ussher’s mammoth work, The Annals of the World, is a highly controversial work today. Even creationists seem to delight in saying that there are areas of his chronology, with which they disagree. At our July meeting, Paul Taylor will present a biography of Ussher, and explain how he came to devise this important chronology. We’ll see how many other scholars, such […]

Butterflies at the Volcano

Saturday, June 4, 2016
This is a joint tour led by Paul Taylor (Mount St. Helens Creation Center) and Caitlin LaBar (Creation Encounter). It will begin at the Center with presentations by Paul about Mount St. Helens and Caitlin about butterflies in the area. We will then caravan to the Hummocks Loop for a short hike, […]

The Ark, The Flood, and the Bill Nye Debate: Key Questions Answered

Dr. Thomas Kindell  •  June 18th, 9:00am to 11:30am
This presentation answers many important questions and refutes many false accusations made by Bill Nye that were not adequately addressed during his famous debate with Ken Ham. Since Nye repeatedly attacked the credibility of Noah’s ark, special emphasis is given to defending the feasibility of the ark.  This presentation also refutes false allegations Nye made regarding glacial boulder deposits, animal migration after the flood, […]

Does Natural Selection Drive the Origin of Species?

Phil Gaskill  •  May 21st, 9:00am to 11:30am
Both Evolutionists and Creationists appeal to the process of Natural Selection to explain the development of new species over time. Recent accusations that Answers in Genesis has embraced evolution have highlighted confusion over the differences between biblical and secular views of adaptation. In addition, new discoveries in molecular biology, […]

Klickitat Butterflies, Bugs, and Blooms

May 14, 2016

Led by guides Caitlin LaBar, Arthur Dunn and Marianne Pike, the Klickitat River Canyon is an excellent area for enjoying butterflies, bugs, dragonflies, and beautiful wildflowers. Just north of Lyle, there is also an isolated population of rare butterfly milkweed right next to a spring of naturally carbonated mineral water. On this new […]

Deschutes Wildlife Hike

April 23, 2016
Plentiful wildlife and sunny weather usually greet us on this leisurely 4½ mile round trip walk along the Lower Deschutes River. Some of us may choose to “walk the extra mile” to find petrified wood and discuss the Flood conditions that fossilized it. Led by Steve Hayley, John Hergenrather, and Marianne Pike, we’ll encounter a variety […]

Only Believe

Paul Taylor  •  April 16th, 9:00am to 11:30am
When we give a defense of the Christian faith to an unbeliever, and offer up evidence of what we believe, who are we actually  making the judge?

Paul Taylor raises this very important question in his talk based off his new book on apologetics, Only Believe.

Apologetics is that branch of practical […]

Wildflowers & Gorge Mysteries

This fun-packed, hands on day trip is similar to our March 12 trip. But we will take less time to collect cobbles and petrified wood and more time to enjoy the wildflowers in the area. Flowers as well as migratory birds and other wildlife are abundant in springtime in the East Columbia River Gorge. With […]
