Grand Canyon - A Different View - Richard Fangrad - Creation Super Conference 2011

Grand Canyon: A different view

This visually rich presentation (based primarily on Richard's own photographs) provides a 'virtual tour' of Grand Canyon based on his 5-day white-water rafting experience through the canyon in the mid-90's. The rocks and fossils provide evidence for rapid deposition of the sedimentary layers, and rapid erosion of the canyon. The earth's surface was dramatically changed during Noah's Flood. Grand Canyon provides evidence of this Flood.

Coral Reefs and the Global Flood - Dr. Robert Carter

Coral Reefs and the Flood

The size and structure of coral reefs has been a strong argument for evolutionists ever since Darwin's famous book on the subject. Since coral reefs are limited to shallow depths, evolutionists claim the presence of extinct coral reefs deep in the ocean and deep in the rock record are an inexplicable puzzle for young-earth beliefs, yet this is not nearly the challenge evolutionists make it out to be. We will analyze several important reef claims, including the buried "reefs" associated with oil in Alberta, the Capitan "reef" of Texas and New Mexico, the incredible "reef" thickness of Eniwetok Atoll, and the relative youth of The Great Barrier Reef of Australia, showing that the evidence fits the timescale given in the Bible.

Biological Information - the Signature of Life - Dr. John Sanford - Creation Super Conference 2011

Biological Information – the Signature of Life

There is a growing awareness that information is the unique non-material force which makes life possible. This growing awareness comes as we are discovery the labyrinth of informational networks in even the simplest cells. This cellular network is similar to today's Internet.

There is rapidly growing evidence that the principles of information run parallel to the laws of thermodynamics. The first law of thermodynamics essentially says that matter and energy cannot just arise from nothing. This is also true of information - it does not arise spontaneously from matter, it only arise through the operation of intelligence. The second law of thermodynamics essentially says that useful things always degenerate into useless things, apart from intelligent intervention. This is also true of information - apart from intelligent intervention, information always degenerates. All this strongly indicates that the biological information networks within cells and organisms must have been intelligently designed, but should now be decaying. This growing new consensus provides astounding affirmation of the Biblical view of reality - that is a recent and miraculous creation, a fallen and dying world, and a profound need for a Saviour.

Universe by Design - Dr. Danny Faulkner - Creation Super Conference 2011

Universe by Design—Big Bang or Big God? (Part 1)

For more than 40 years the big bang theory has been the dominant model of the origin of the universe. Can this theory be reconciled with the Bible? How well does it fit the observational data? Does the big bang qualify as a scientific theory?

Universe by Design—Part 2 Comets and the Age of the Solar System

Comets are astonishing objects, and our understanding of comets has changed tremendously over the years. We know that individual comets have lifetimes far less than billions of years, so their existence suggests that the solar system is much younger than generally thought. We will examine some of the responses that evolutionary scientists have for this problem.

Back to Scientists alive today who accept the biblical account for creation

The Truth About Ancient Man - Dr. Jack Cuozzo | Evolutionists tell us that man started out dumb, started with not much more intelligence than an ape, and slowly evolving to the state where we are today with all our advanced technologies. Looking into archaeology and ancient history tells the opposite story, and supports the idea that God created man perfect and he has slowly degraded from there because of sin, mutations, etc.

Noah's Flood: Key to Understanding the Age of the Earth - Creation Magazine LIVE!

Click on the slide! 

Creation Magazine Live

In these special made-for-TV episodes, watch Richard Fangrad and Calvin Smith of CMI–Canada as they discuss some of the most-asked topics and questions that are regularly dealt with in our world-renowned Creation magazine.


 Part 1

If the rock layers found all over the earth are a result of a global flood then they cannot also be evidence for slow deposition over millions of years. An understanding of what the Flood was like and what it could accomplish (geologically) is a key to understanding the age of the Earth.

The Catastrophic Plate Tectonics (CPT) model is discussed as a mechanism operating during the Flood to explain many large scale geologic features observed today. This discussion continues in part 2, Episode #16 below.

The Non–Mythical Adam and Eve

Many people 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.

Female Reproductive System Kills Evolution Dead in its Tracks - Dr. Randy Guliuzza

On Friday, Oct 13th, 2006, Rocky Mountain Creation Fellowship was privileged to have as it's monthly speaker. Dr. Randy Guliuzza. Dr. Guliuzza received his medical degree from the University of Minnesota and his Masters in Public Health from Harvard University. He holds a B.S. in engineering from South Dakota School of Mines and a B.A. in theology from Moody Bible Institute.

Dr. Guliuzza spoke twice that Friday night, his talk being in two parts. His first topic was The Reproductive System: Fascinating Evidence for Design-Part I (Dad's Role). This presentation will cover rarely discussed details of human reproduction that form irrefutable arguments for a supernaturally designed system.

All topics were covered in a tasteful manner and there was no discussion of external anatomy. Rather, the listener is put into the seat of a typical medical student taking in the detailed--though thoroughly explained--process of reproductive physiology and microscopic anatomy.

Quotations directly from medical texts guided the lecture through topics such as:
  1. the process of sperm formation and design features to protect them from auto-destruction, 
  2. how random genetic mutations could never produce the intricate, coordinated physiology necessary for fertilization and 
  3. how the lethal diseases that result when mistakes occur in the process.

In the second portion of his talk, Dr. Guliuzza spoke on The Reproductive System: Fascinating Evidence for Design-Part II (Mom's Role). Topics will include
  1. how mother's immune system is controlled by the baby to prevent its own rejection, 
  2. how random genetic mutations could never produce the intricate, coordinated physiology necessary for fertilization and 
  3. how baby's hormones maintain pregnancy, control maternal metabolism and prime the mother for partuition.

The content of both talks is strictly scientific, but the inescapable conclusions give God all the glory, showing that we are truly fearfully and wonderfully made. These two topics by Dr Guliuzza should interest many of our RMCF members and give us another chance to study the intricate mechanism of the human reproductive system.

More Dinosaur Sightings in Papua New Guinea

Article from
Published: 23 August 2012 (GMT+10)
Following on from his 2008 article Theropod and sauropod dinosaurs sighted in PNG?, in January 2012 the author Brian Irwin along with Russell Cook (both Australians) travelled to West New Britain in Papua New Guinea to investigate further reports of animals presumed to be extinct. Here is an account of their conversations with eyewitnesses—local people who claimed to have recently seen dinosaur-like creatures.

Sauropod sightings in the south and north of West New Britain

1. Ambungi Island Sightings

The inhabitants of Ambungi Island1 and the surrounding region have observed unusual animals that resemble sauropod dinosaurs since the mid-1990s. Ambungi Island is located about two kilometres south of the south coast of West New Britain, approximately midway between Kandrian and Gasmata. It is only since the 1920s that Ambungi Island has been populated.

Swimming with a sauropod?

A local man named Alphones Likky (interviewed on 15th January 2012—see Figure 2) claimed to have seen a sauropod-like creature in 1995 while he was spearfishing on the reef on the south side (unpopulated) of Ambungi Island.

Figure 2: While diving on a reef on the south side of Ambungi Island in 1995, Alphones Likky (far left) was startled to see a large sauropod-like creature 
about five metres away.
Figure 2: While diving on a reef off Ambungi Island in 1995, Alphones Likky (far left) was startled to see a large sauropod-like creature about five metres away.

Alphones was facing south at the bottom of the reef stalking fish when, he says, he heard the sound of something crashing into the coral behind him. When Alphones turned around he was startled to see a large animal at close range, a distance of approximately five metres (c. 15 feet), fully submersed in the water. He says it moved slowly past from left to right and entered the left of two underwater caves located on the south side of Ambungi Island. (See Figure 3.)

Figure 3: An artist’s reconstruction of the animal seen entering an underwater cave on the south side of Ambungi Island.

side of Ambungi Island.

Seeing the creature at such close range and being in the water with it, Alphones was terrified.

Alphones described the animal as having a long neck and tail and four legs, with the hind legs being longer than the front legs and the feet resembling those of a duck. The length of the animal was estimated to be four metres from the front legs to the end of the tail, with a height of two to three metres. The animal’s skin was stated to be dark brown, the texture of the skin could not be determined. The head of the creature was described as being small and similar to a snake’s head; no teeth were observed and the eye was described as being similar to the eyes of other animals. Dermal frills were observed on the animal’s back and tail, but not on the neck. The creature’s movement was described as being slow, with the tail moving noticeably. The neck of the creature was horizontal for the duration of the sighting, which lasted about 10 seconds. Seeing the creature at such close range and being in the water with it, Alphones was terrified. Wanting to escape with his life from this ordeal, Alphones promptly surfaced to reach his canoe and left the area quickly. He certainly didn’t hang around in hope of getting a glimpse of the creature’s body above the water!

Cook, donning the mask and snorkel, is preparing to take a quick look at the cave entrances, and the nearby coral.  Below: As Mr Cook enters the water, part of the entrance to the left cave

The two underwater caves on the south side of Ambungi Island are separated by a distance of approximately 20 metres. The left cave has a circular entrance and has a height of about 2.5 metres. The right cave has a triangular entrance and also has a height of about 2.5 metres and appears from the outside to be considerably larger than the left cave. Neither cave has been explored because of the unavailability of sophisticated diving and lighting equipment.

A dinosaur in the garden?

In 1999 the second good sighting of one of these creatures occurred, however on this occasion the animal was observed on the land.

Alice Pasington (interviewed on 14th January 2012) was working alone in the garden on the south side of the island when she claims to have had an unusual encounter. From a distance of about 40 metres, Alice observed one of the creatures and estimated the total length to be about three metres. (See artist’s reconstruction in Figure 6.)

Figure 6: An artist’s reconstruction of the three-metre animal that Alice Pasington says she saw while working in the garden about 40 metres away.

Figure 7:  The actual plant with the rough-textured leaf that Alice Pasington saw the animal eating.
Figure 7: The actual plant with the rough-textured leaf that Alice Pasington saw the animal eating.

The colour of the animal’s skin was reddish-brown and white around the breast area. The texture of the skin appeared smooth and dermal frills were seen only on the tail. The animal moved slowly with its neck nearly vertical and Alice saw it feeding on a plant with a rough-textured leaf (see Figure 7).
Alice then observed the animal turn around and walk to a small cliff, where it dived into the sea. During this time, the creature was followed at a distance and did not seem aware of Alice’s presence. After the animal had left the garden, Alice observed the five-toed footprints in the ground and later showed these footprints to other residents of Ambungi Island. The animal may have entered the garden from the beach on the western side of the island during the night. From the above description, it is possible that it may have been a juvenile specimen of the same type of creature as the other sightings, based on its size, colour, footprint and smooth skin texture.

Sleeping on a rock

Once the animal heard the sound of people, it moved from the rock back into the sea.

In 2007, Jasinta Pitim, another resident of Ambungi Island, observed the profile of a large animal sleeping on a rock on a reef on the south side of Ambungi Island. The animal was described as having a long neck that was curved back near its body, which was dark-brown, with skin described as being like a crocodile, and with dermal frills. Jasinta hurried home and told her husband Joe (interviewed on 14th January 2012), who travelled to the location, where he saw it too. Once the animal heard the sound of people, it moved from the rock back into the sea. Back in 1997 Joe and Jasinta observed a similar animal while travelling from Ambungi Island to Malengo Island in a canoe. From a distance of approximately eight metres the head and neck of the creature were visible for a short period of time.

Similar animals have also been observed on islands close to Ambungi Island.

Figure 8:  Joe and Jasinta Pitim observed a large aquatic animal sunning itself on a rock on a reef off Ambungi Island in 2007.  They had seen the head 
and neck of a similar creature protruding above the sea while travelling by canoe ten years earlier.

off Ambungi Island in 2007. They had seen the head and neck of a similar creature protruding 
above the sea while travelling by canoe ten years earlier.

2. Gasmata sighting

A creature similar to the one(s) observed around Ambungi Island has also been seen once near Gasmata. One afternoon in August 2004, three adults—Fabian Amon (see Figure 1), Simon Patolkit2 (Figure 9) and Margaret Patolkit—along with some children observed a sauropod-like creature on the south side of Dililo Island, an unpopulated island used mainly for farming by the local people from Gasmata.

Figure 9: The gentleman at the far left of this photo is Simon Patolkit, who along with his wife Margaret and others observed a huge creature in the sea 
off Gasmata. (See Figure 10.)
Figure 9: The gentleman at the far left of this photo is Simon Patolkit, who along with his wife 
Margaret and others observed a huge creature in the sea off Gasmata. (See Figure 10.) 

Simon was interviewed on 13th January 2012 at the location of the sighting and Fabian was interviewed on 18th January 2012. Both of their accounts of the sighting were very similar.
Simon, Margaret and Fabian were diving for fish on the reef on the south side of Dililo Island when they heard an unusual sound in the water and noticed that the fish were scattering. They became somewhat frightened by this incident and left the water for the safety of the land. A short time later, while sitting on some rocks, they observed part of an unknown animal above the water about 40–50 metres away and travelling in an east-west direction parallel to the coast.

The creature had a large body and a neck estimated to be three metres long that was horizontal and close to the water. No tail or legs were visible and the total length of the visible portion of the animal was about eight metres. The head was like a crocodile or lizard and the eye was described as being ‘big’. The colour of the animal was uniform brown and the skin had a rough texture. The animal was described as having a ‘saw’ in the middle of its back, which consisted of 4 or 5 dermal frills. Observation time lasted about one minute during which time the creature moved slowly until it submersed itself fully in the water.

Figure 10: The creature observed at Gasmata Reef held its head and neck (about 3 metres long) just above the water and was described as having a 
‘saw’ in the middle of its back.  The visible part of the creature was estimated to be about 8 metres (26 feet) in length—but its total body length was likely 
considerably greater, given its tail was submerged and out of view.

but its total body length was likely considerably greater, given its tail was submerged and out of view.

3. Possible theropod sighting in the north of West New Britain

A small theropod-like creature that local people have dubbed ‘Doren’ has been repeatedly observed around Benaule Village3, which is located approximately 25 km east of Kimbe on the north coast of West New Britain. The creature has been seen quite frequently for many years, with a close encounter reported in November 2010.

Figure 11: Pastor Ken-John showing the height of the ‘Doren’ he saw while using the toilet.
Figure 11: Pastor Ken-John showing the height of the ‘Doren’ he saw while using the toilet.
Pastor Ken-John was sitting on an ‘outhouse’ toilet at the Tabernacle Of Worship church during the day when he observed the profile of the head and upper torso of the ‘Doren’ appear only one metre away, just outside. The head was described as being like that of an aircraft (presumably like the profile of the nose of a jet, such as a 747) and the colour was medium brown. The animal has also been seen on the seashore near the church grounds by local people, where it comes ashore during high tide and travels back to the sea during low tide.

Figure 12: Pastor Ken-John stands by the sea in the grounds of the Tabernacle of Worship church, showing where he says the ‘Doren’ comes 
ashore at high tide.  With him are Ben (the landowner) and John.
Figure 12: Pastor Ken-John stands by the sea in the grounds of the Tabernacle of Worship church, showing where he says the ‘Doren’ comes ashore at high tide. With him are Ben (the landowner) and John.
The ‘Doren’ has been observed eating crabs and digging up vegetables from a garden.

A distinctive footprint of the ‘Doren’, which is described as being about 25cm long, is often seen in the sand by the sea. The left foot of the creature was drawn in the sand by a local person (see Figure 13). During the wet season, the ‘Doren’ travels inland along a creek to a mountain. The ‘Doren’ has been observed eating crabs and digging up vegetables from a garden near the church—apparently looking for worms and other invertebrates to eat, as it doesn’t normally eat the vegetables it unearths.

Figure 13:  The footprint of the ‘Doren’—as drawn in the sand by Ben (Figure 12).

Figure 14: A scan of pages from the 2003 evolutionary dinosaur handbook by H. Richardson, Dinosaurs and prehistoric life, showing a scientific illustration of Herrerasaurus (on the right-hand page). Click for larger image. 

When walking, the ‘Doren’ uses four legs. However, when running the creature is reported as using rear legs only and as being able to outrun a human. It seems from the descriptions that the ‘Doren’ might be best identified as a Herrerasaurus.4

Concluding remarks

Reports alone are ultimately not enough to conclusively establish the fact that some dinosaurs are still alive today. However, if these are eventually backed up by hard evidence, the finding of living dinosaurs should not be such a surprise to people, considering that some animals and plants that were believed to be extinct for millions of years have been discovered alive. These discoveries include the Coelacanth fish (discovered in 1938) and the Wollemi Pine tree (discovered in 1994). For Christians it should be less surprising still, as the authority of the Bible is a solid basis for believing that humans have lived at the same time as dinosaurs (whether or not some dinosaurs still survive); because Genesis teaches that the heavens, the earth, and everything in them was created in that six-day period about 6000 years ago. The remains of dinosaurs (some of which are still ‘soft and squishy’, with identifiable proteins) would be no older than the Genesis Flood, which occurred about 4,500 years ago.

Deep Time in Geology—Where does it come from?

How geology confirms a young age of the earth. Some of the basic tenets of time interpretation – both physical and geological – and the foundational geologic features are reviewed and re–explained in a young earth framework, revealing the many flaws of the millions–of–years interpretations and the fact that it is only the interpretation of the same facts by different paradigms that has created the great division between science and Christianity.

Refuting Compromise - Dr. Jonathan Sarfati - Creation Super Conference 2011

Super Conference 2011 Banner

Refuting Compromise

A six day, young earth understanding of Genesis is the only one that comes from the text itself, which is why the rest of Scripture interprets it that way. Long-age views are a modern aberration that comes from imposing outside ideas of uniformitarian "science" upon the text. See how compromising views render the Bible meaningless to a dying world. You'll be encouraged and energized to hear there is no need for compromise and that there are answers. The evidence for Creation and the Bible's account of history is all around us if only we know how to look for it, and Jonathan will show you how to do just that!

 Jonathan Sarfati

Dr Jonathan D. Sarfati B.Sc. (Hons.), Ph.D., F.M.

Creationist Physical Chemist and Spectroscopist (Australia)


Dr Jonathan Sarfati was born in Ararat, Australia in 1964. He moved to New Zealand as a child and later studied science at Victoria University of Wellington. He obtained a B.Sc. (Hons.) in Chemistry with two physics papers substituted (nuclear and condensed matter physics). His Ph.D. in Chemistry was awarded for a thesis entitled ‘A Spectroscopic Study of some Chalcogenide Ring and Cage Molecules’. He has co-authored papers in mainstream scientific journals on high temperature superconductors and selenium-containing ring and cage-shaped molecules. He also had a co-authored paper on high-temperature superconductors published in Nature when he was 22.

Dr Sarfati has been a Christian since 1984. He has long been interested in apologetics, the defense of the faith, and was a co-founder of the Wellington Christian Apologetics Society (New Zealand).1 Creation vs evolution is of course a vital area, because of the ramifications for the doctrines of Creation, the Fall which brought death into the world, and their links to the doctrines of the Incarnation, Atonement and Bodily Resurrection of the God-man Jesus Christ.

In August 1996, he returned to the country of his birth to take up a position as a research scientist and editorial consultant for Creation Ministries International in Brisbane. In this capacity, he is co-editor of Creation magazine, and also writes and reviews articles for Journal of Creation, CMI’s in-depth peer-reviewed publication, as well as contributing to CMI’s website.

In 1999, his first book was published—Refuting Evolution, which countered a teachers guidebook by the National Academy of Sciences, Teaching about Evolution and the Nature of Science, which had been widely circulated and publicized. Refuting Evolution now has 450,000 copies in print. Later that year he was a co-author of the updated and expanded Answers Book [note: now entitled The Creation Answers Book], answering 20 of the most-asked questions about creation/evolution. He later wrote Refuting Evolution 2, countering the PBS Evolution series and an anticreationist article in Scientific American.

In 2004, he wrote Refuting Compromise, defending a straightforward biblical creation timeline and a global flood, and answering biblical and scientific objections, concentrating on the errant teachings of day-age/local flood advocate Hugh Ross. It has been acclaimed as ‘the most powerful biblical and scientific defense of a straightforward view of Genesis creation ever written!’ See the introductory chapter and some reviews.
In 2006, he co-authored 15 Reasons to Take Genesis as History with Don Batten, as a concise reference guide for Christians, including pastors and theologians, why Genesis can be trusted as real history of Creation about 6000 years ago and a global Flood.

In 2008, he finished By Design: Evidence for nature’s Intelligent Designer—the God of the Bible. This demonstrates many examples of design in many areas, shows why chemical evolution can’t explain the origin of first life, and answers many objections to the Intelligent Design movement by invoking the biblical Creation-Fall model.

Dr Jonathan Sarfati playing blindfold chess
In 2010, Dr Sarfati wrote The Greatest Hoax on Earth? Refuting Dawkins on evolution, a response to leading atheopath Richard Dawkins’ latest book The Greatest Show on Earth: The Evidence for Evolution (see website).

That year, Dr Sarfati emigrated to the USA with his wife to work in the CMI–USA office as speaker and Head Scientist.

Dr Sarfati is also a keen chess player. He is a former New Zealand Chess Champion, and represented New Zealand in three Chess Olympiads, and drew with Boris Spassky, world champion 1969–1972, in a tournament game (those interested in the game score and ‘post-mortem’ (i.e. post-game analysis) photograph can see this chess site). In 1988, F.I.D.E., the International Chess Federation, awarded him the title of F.I.D.E. Master (FM). Dr Sarfati regularly accepts challenges from multiple players where he plays ‘blindfold’, i.e. from memory without sight or any physical contact with the board, so moves are communicated via a recognized chess notation (See an example at the Croydon Chess Club). Twelve is the most played simultaneously to date—see photo, above right.
Dr Sarfati is married with one stepson and two grand-daughters.
