Icons of Evolution - Dr. Heinz Lycklama

Ideas are often reinforced by means of the frequent use and display of memorable icons. There is no better known icon for the theory of evolution than the picture that demonstrates an ape walking on four limbs and then through a series of transitions to a human being walking on two legs. Every school science textbook shows this icon. But there are other icons that are often used to demonstrate the theory of evolution despite the fact that the principles and concepts conveyed by the icons have long since been proven to be false, even by scientists who claim to be evolutionists. And yet these icons still appear in many of the popular text books used in our public schools today. If you have children or grandchildren in public schools, you need to know what these icons are and how they are being used to support the theory of evolution.

About the Speaker:
Dr. Heinz Lycklama earned a Bachelor’s degree in Engineering Physics and a Ph. D. degree in experimental Nuclear Physics from McMaster University in Canada in 1965 and 1969 respectively. Since then he has worked in the telecommunications and computer software industries at Bell Telephone Laboratories in NJ and at Interactive Systems Corporation in CA. In 1992 Dr. Lycklama formed Open Systems Technology Associates (OSTA) and now offers his technology management services to various start ups in the high technology industry.
Being challenged in his Christian faith by what he was taught in university in the 1960’s, Dr. Lycklama has always maintained an active interest in the Creation vs. Evolution controversy. As his children reached school age and began to ask questions about what they were taught in school, he became more involved in researching the topic of Creation vs. Evolution. He has developed a series of lectures on this topic over the years and presented the material in Sunday school classes, to college students, during church services and also at an overseas seminary.

Dr. Lycklama has taught through a number of the books of the Bible over the years, including Proverbs, Esther, Job, Jeremiah, Daniel, Romans, Philemon, Hebrews, Revelation, and various Psalms and Minor Prophets. His teaching also includes topics such as prophecy, angels, heaven, Christian worldview, cults, culture, Y2K, and various Old Testament prophets. With his knowledge of the Bible, and of science and engineering, Dr. Lycklama has continued to develop and present new material regarding the Creation v. Evolution controversy. He lectures regularly with Powerpoint Presentations that will help the believer defend the Bible’s teaching on Creation and challenge the skeptic to take an honest look at what the Bible AND science have to say about Creation.
