Fearfully and Wonderfully Made - Dr. David Menton

Part 1

“The question is not when does life begin, but when does a person begin?” Dr. David Menton explains from anatomical science and biology the truth of Psalm 139:13–16, which says that God weaves us together in the womb. This illustrated lecture also reveals the amazing and intricate design of the womb and the processes of fertilization, implantation, embryonic development, and birth itself. Dr. Menton shows that each of these is a series of miracles (irreducible complexities) that cannot be explained by chance and random processes. Even more important, as Dr. Menton explains with grace and sensitivity in the wrap-up of the video, is the second “birth” process of salvation explained in John 3.

Part 2

Dr David Menton

Creationist Anatomist (AiG - USA)

David Menton“Dr. Menton presented at Mt. Hood Community College (Oregon), and two evolution profs were firing questions after each of David's 40-minute presentations. When most of the audience had left, one of the students came up and said, referring to the profs, ‘Those guys were playing T-ball against the Yankees (Dr. Menton).’
“I love that comment.”
—Craig H., Portland, Oregon

NOTE: For those unfamiliar with T-ball, it is a children’s version of
baseball where there is no pitcher; instead, the batter simply hits the ball off a 2-foot high tee—like a long golf tee—so that it is very easy to hit.

By the way, Dr. Menton wants to let AiG supporters know that he has a burden to reach teens and college students with the creation/gospel message. When speaking at a seminar or church, he likes to add on speaking engagements at nearby colleges or high schools, so please think about that possibility when considering this excellent communicator as a speaker in your area (call 1-859-727-2222 ext. 403 for information).
