What Darwin Didn't Know - Dr. Robert Carter



Seminar by Dr. Robert Carter
September 18, 2014
Cedar Park Christian School - Mountlake Terrace, WA.

Description:
Studio photo showing Darwin's characteristic large forehead and bushy eyebrows with deep set eyes, pug nose and mouth set in a determined look. He is bald on top, with dark hair and long side whiskers but no beard or moustache.
Dr. Carter shares historical insight into Darwin’s past and the ideas that helped formulate the most widely embraced theory in science. Do Darwin’s theories on origins still stand up in today’s scientific world? If he were alive today, what would he think of the currently accepted evidence for his theory? In light of modern science, would he dare to invent an evolutionary theory of origins if he were still around now? Come find out What Darwin Didn’t Know.

About the Speaker:
Dr Carter was converted to Christ at an early age, but did not know what to do with the theory of evolution. He always knew what he wanted to believe, but had no way to express what he was thinking and no evidence to support his views. In his freshman year of college, he was exposed to the information for creation for the first time and soon after adopted it as his modus operandi. He says he felt a tremendous joy when he realized his science and his religion were no longer at odds. This joy (and, he says, Creation magazine and the Journal of Creation) enabled him to get through the in-depth evolutionary training of his undergraduate and graduate programs with his faith intact.

He obtained a BS in Applied Biology from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 1992. He then spent four years teaching high school biology, chemistry, physics and electronics before going to the University of Miami to obtain his PhD in Marine Biology. He successfully completed this program in 2003 with a dissertation on “Cnidarian Fluorescent Proteins.” While in Miami, he studied the genetics of pigmentation in corals and other invertebrates, designed and built an aquaculture facility for Caribbean corals, performed well over 500 SCUBA dives, many of them at night, and licensed a spin-off product of his research (a patented fluorescent protein) to a biotech company. See longer version of bio.

He is currently a senior scientist and speaker for Creation Ministries International-USA in Atlanta, Georgia, where he lives with his wife, Leanne, and children and is currently researching human genetics and other issues related to biblical creation.

Dr. Kent Hovind vs Dr. Eugenie Genie Scott - #Creation / #Evolution Radio Debate


Broadcast on WBT Radio, (Charlotte, NC) in 1993. Eugenie Scott of the National Center for Science Education debates Young Earth Creationist Kent Hovind.


BIO: Dr. Kent Hovind

Bio from http://creationtoday.org/about/dr-kent-hovind/

Kent Hovind became a Christian at age sixteen and immediately desired to serve Christ with his life. His keen interest in math and science throughout his high school career prompted his enrollment at Illinois Central College as a science major. After two years of undergraduate work there, and feeling God calling him to full-time Christian service, he completed his bachelor of religious education degree at Midwestern Baptist College of Pontiac, Michigan in 1974.

For fifteen years Hovind taught high school math and science, during which time he completed his master’s degree in education. While researching and writing his doctoral dissertation on the subject of creation vs. evolution, he saw the tremendous need for exposing evolution as a dangerous, religious worldview, and for arming Christians with scientific evidence that there are no contradictions between true science and the Bible. In response to these needs, shortly after finishing his Ph.D. in religious education, he began a full-time ministry of presenting the foundational truth of creation and the utter fallacy of evolution with a mission of strengthening the faith of believers and winning the lost to Christ. His award-winning seven-part Creation Seminar continues to travel around the globe with translations in thirty-two languages.

Kent Hovind contributes his creation resources exclusively through Creation Today and The Creation Store.

The Latest in Creation Science - Fred Williams



For the monthly meeting on July 11, the Rocky Mountain Creation Fellowship speaker was a member of the RMCF Board of Directors, Fred Williams. Fred has been giving lectures on creation for over 20 years to churches, schools, conferences, and other organizations. In addition to serving as a speaker for RMCF, he also serves as their webmaster. Williams has a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering, and currently works for Mic. He has long served as the webmaster for the Creation Research Society, the oldest creation organization in the United States. Fred's topic is titled "The Latest in Creation Science." Fred has been engaging Bible skeptics for many years and has compiled answers to a wide range of questions and criticisms leveled against the Bible, providing solid answers to the skeptics, showing that the Bible must be divinely inspired.

New View of Gravity Helps Creation Cosmology - Dr. Russ Humphreys


New view of gravity advances creation cosmology

D. Russell Humphreys

Russ-Humphreys.jpgHere I give a new picture of how gravity works, depicting space as a membrane being greatly accelerated in a 4th spatial direction. The Unruh effect, which connects acceleration with a black-body temperature, could then explain the cosmic microwave background radiation. The Scriptural phrase "stretching out the heavens like a tent curtain" might not mean a many-fold extension (expansion) of the membrane, but rather an increase of the tension within it. A stepwise increase of the tension on the 2nd day of creation would make the gravitational potential of the cosmos slowly increase even until now, without significant expansion. This results in a new redshift-versus-distance relation. It is slightly nonlinear, providing an alternative explanation for an "accelerating universe" without need for "dark energy." The new redshift result also gives a more satisfying expression for the anomalous deceleration of the Pioneer 10 and 11 spacecraft, as I hope to show in a later paper.

The Non-Mythical Adam and Eve - Dr. Rob Carter


Seminar by Dr. Robert Carter
September 15, 2014
The Expedition Christian Church
Mountlake Terrace, WA

Description:
Many people mistakenly believe science has proven that Adam and Eve never existed. In this presentation, Dr. Carter digs into the science of genetics, using the most up-to-date information, to show how Adam and Eve are completely consistent with the data. Instead of discrediting Genesis, modern science affirms that we came from just two ancestors who lived only a few thousand years ago.
