  • Bethlehem’s Star: What Was It?

    CANCELLED DUE TO ICY WEATHER Paul Taylor  •  December 17th, 9:00am to 11:30am Bethlehem’s Star is arguably the most intriguing aspect of the traditional Christmas account.  What was it?  Was it natural or super-natural?  Who were these Wise Men, and why were they looking for the Messiah?  All these questions and more will be answered […]

  • Depraved New World: the social implications of Darwinian evolution

    Dr. Phil Fernandez  •  November 19th, 9:00am to 11:30am In this lecture, Dr. Fernandes shows that America’s acceptance of Darwinian Evolution has led to a de-valuing of human life. This has led to abortion, infanticide, destruction of the family unit. In the near future animal-human hybrids, human clones, and the outlawing of Christianity will follow—unless, […]

  • The Great Dinosaur Deception — Exposed!

    Dr. Thomas Kindell  •  October 15th, 9:00am to 11:30am Dr. Kindell will explain why dinosaurs are actually evidence for creation, not for evolution.  He will cite considerable Biblical, historical, archeological and scientific evidence that indicates that man and dinosaurs were created together and that some dinosaurs may still be living in remote areas. *Dr. Thomas Kindell was once an ardent believer in the “fact” of evolution. However, through his exposure […]

  • 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 […]

  • 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, […]

  • 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 […]
