Why is Evolutionary 'Just-So' Story-Telling Tolerated? - 15 Questions for Evolutionists #12

15 Questions for Evolutionists -- Question 12
Why is evolutionary ‘just-so’ story-telling tolerated? Evolutionists often use flexible story-telling to ‘explain’ observations contrary to evolutionary theory. NAS(USA) member Dr Philip Skell wrote, “Darwinian explanations for such things are often too supple: Natural selection makes humans self-centered and aggressive—except when it makes them altruistic and peaceable. Or natural selection produces virile men who eagerly spread their seed—except when it prefers men who are faithful protectors and providers. When an explanation is so supple that it can explain any behavior, it is difficult to test it experimentally, much less use it as a catalyst for scientific discovery.”8 See: ‘Just-so’ stories of sex and family life.

The Heavens Declare - Chris Ashcraft

The Heavens Declare
by Chris W. Ashcraft, MS., M.Ed.
Seattle Creation Conference, September 2011.
Modern astronomy offers mankind a look at the cosmos never before seen. The size and beauty of astronomical bodies is a testimony to the magnificence that is our Father in heaven. This presentation aptly uses the scale of the cosmos to guide viewers to a better appreciation of the Glory of God as is revealed by the heavens. Drawing from images taken by space telescopes and spacecraft, we will tour the solar system, distant nebulae, and galaxies that testify of the creators power.

The Moral Impact Of Darwinism On Society - Dr. Phil Fernandes

by Phil Fernandes
Seattle Creation Conference, October 2011

Darwinian thought has not only damaged our scientific knowledge of the world--it has also led to the moral decline in the West. Many leaders have tried to apply evolutionary science to moral issues, and the results have been devastating. Darwinian evolution denies that man was created in God's image and has led to the de-valuing of human life. It has played a significant role in the eugenics ("good genes") movement, ultimately leading to atrocities such as the holocaust, abortion, infanticide, and euthanasia. The influence of evolutionary thought on Planned Parenthood, Nazi Germany, the Soviet Union, and American culture will be examined.
This video file is a 60 minute seminar by Phil Fernandes that was recorded during the Seattle Creation Conference October 2011 at Wooden Valley Baptist Church.
DVDs of the Seattle Creation Conference are available for purchase in our web store.
About the Speaker:
Dr. Phil Fernandes is a Biblical apologist and lecturer. He has a Ph.D. in Philosophy of Religion degree from Greenwich University, and is the President of the Institute of Biblical Defense.
He has lectured and debated on numerous college campuses including: Princeton, University of North Carolina (Chapel Hill), and the University of Washington. He has debated some of America's leading atheist thinkers such as Dr. Michael Martin (Professor of Philosophy, Boston University), Dan Barker, Jeff Lowder, and Elliot Ratzman

How do 'Living Fossils' Remain Unchanged over 100s of Millions of Years? - 15 Questions for Evolutionists #10

15 Questions for Evolutionists -- Question 10
Living fossils are fossilized animals and plants that look similar to modern organisms. Random mutations would have been occurring in creatures throughout such supposed vast time periods separating the assumed ancient and modern organisms. How then would 'living fossils' remain unchanged over supposed hundreds of millions of years, if evolution has changed worms into humans in the same time frame?

Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed


Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed is a documentary film charging Darwinists with suppressing and persecuting scholars who disagree with them in order to avoid discussing the scientific challenges which intelligent design presents to the Origins of Species aspects of the theory of evolution.[1] . The film's premise, which it goes on to prove with unassailable logic, is that scientists have been met with harsh opposition and/or received punishments from schools, universities and the scientific community merely for daring to ask inconvenient questions.[2] The documentary is co-written and hosted by Ben Stein and was released in America on Friday, April 18, 2008.
  • This movie follows Ben Stein as he seeks to prove that far from being a pseudo-science trying to undermine evolutionary biology, Intelligent Design is in fact a legitimate science being suppressed by a scientific establishment that is hostile to any deviation from the status quo. [3]
In the film's trailer, Stein states that there are "people out there who want to keep science in a little box where it can’t possibly touch God" and that "freedom of thought and freedom of inquiry have been expelled from publicly-funded high schools, universities and research institutions."[4] This also refers to privately funded science institutions as well.
Perhaps most infuriatingly true and telling for design opponents is the way the film links Darwin's ideas to Social Darwinism and destructive, immoral, atheistic ideologies such as Hitler's National Socialism and Marxist socialism.[5]
The film clearly shows that scientists and educators who promote intelligent design are persecuted by the scientific establishment.[6] Examples given by the film include Richard Sternberg, a biologist, journal editor, and research associate at the National Museum of Natural History, and Guillermo Gonzalez, a pro-intelligent design astrophysicist denied tenure at Iowa State University in 2007.[4]
