You will be taken on a visual tour of our planet with researcher and explorer, Vance Nelson. You will see verified evidence that medieval to ancient people must have seen dinosaurs and 'extinct' reptiles alive recently. Depictions, many new to the creation community, provide powerful evidence that the Bible's account of history in Genesis is accurate - people and these allegedly extinct creatures lived together recently.
The history of palaeontology is discussed, including how the original palaeontologists used both the words dragon and dinosaur. Artwork from around the planet is shown detailing evidence that the artists must have seen 'extinct' reptiles and dinosaurs alive or recently dead. Based on the evidence from ancient through medieval artwork, the best explanation is that these creatures and humans coexisted, as expected from the biblical creation model.
ATP synthase is one of the wonders of the molecular world. It is an enzyme, a molecular motor, an ion pump, and a molecular generator all bound together in one amazing nano-scale machine. It plays an indispensable role in our cells, providing the energy that powers our bodily processes. Is it really credible that such a system could have been formed by chance over millions of years? The evidence points strongly to Design and ATP synthase is a witness to the skill and ingenuity of the Designer.
The overwhelming evidence for design and the folly of atheism. Naturalism is shown to be unreasonable, unscientific and unhelpful. In contrast the Christian worldview is based on facts, evidence and history. This has led many great scientists, past and present to be active Christians.
In awesome wonder we consider all the works that God’s hand has made. But are we unique within them? Or do our chromosomes and the fossil record betray a simian past? Jim Whitehall weighs the current evolutionary genetic and fossil arguments of common descent, against the Bible claims. In whose image are we? The Chimps, or God’s?
Whether Noah’s Flood was global or not, remains a major point of contention in theological colleges and churches, in that many believe that a Global Flood and science cannot be aligned. Having said this, scientists working at CMI and other Christian research entities continue to accumulate evidence that Noah’s Flood was global!
This presentation will provide an update on evidence for a Global Flood and will present additional landscape and depositional evidence that has been more thoroughly researched in recent years. The combined scientific evidence continues to point clearly to a flood scarred earth, a reflection of God’s judgement of man’s sin.
Gigantic creatures have been unearthed all over the planet. These fossil organisms do not fit well with the theory of evolution, but provide powerful positive support for the Biblical record of history. There was a perfect creation Designed by God followed by Decline and Decimation due to sin, the curse, and the devastating worldwide Flood described in the book of Genesis (and its subsequent consequences). In some cases, some of these creatures met their Demise.
The biblical record of Genesis and the New Testament will be discussed to gain a basic biblical framework for the history of the world, and the expected trend of animals based on this history. A dozen gigantic fossil creatures will be specifically discussed, looking at the fossils and reconstructions. These will be compared with their closest living counterparts. Post-Flood conditions, including the Ice Age will be discussed with respect to their disappearance.
The evolutionary theory of history requires millions (or billions) of years since the earth formed. The discovery in 1993 of soft tissue and biomolecules in dinosaur bones raised a storm of controversy in the scientific world. Could fragile chemicals from creatures extinct 65 million years ago really survive for that long or is there a simpler explanation? Which view of earth’s history is correct? How can we explain the fossil record? This talk reviews the latest research in radiocarbon dating of dinosaur remains and presents data supporting the Biblical timeframe.
Biblical inerrancy and timeframe, how dinosaurs fit in, fossils and the Flood, Sinfulness of Man, God’s judgment past (Flood), present and future (2nd Coming - 2 Peter 3). Man’s need to trust in Christ
Fraser Island has been listed as 700,000 years old (and is therefore considered to be the world's oldest recorded sequence of sand dunes), even though early scientific work pointed to a young island. This presentation argues that Fraser Island is quite young and a consequence of Noah’s flood.
Radiocarbon-dating and correlation analysis are inappropriate techniques to use on a sand island. So, two other unique features will be explored – the distribution of ‘coffee rocks’ and the podzol soils (or what are more commonly known as coloured sands).
We argue that these features may both result from a rapid movement of coastal sands in a wet sub-tropical environment that immediately formed after the Flood, and potentially also during and immediately after the post Flood ice age.
Come on a visual tour with Vance Nelson as we dig up dinosaur and other fossils in Montana, Wyoming, Alberta, and Saskatchewan. What do we actually find? What does the evidence actually show? Does it fit with evolution and millions of years? Or, does the evidence fit with massive flood deposits? What about the fossils themselves? Do they show evolution? Or' do they show evidence for creation? The fossils, as will be seen from the actual evidence, provide powerful positive evidence for creation and the Flood. Many photographs from actual digs will be shown.
The biblical foundation of geology will be discussed, including the development of the geologic column. Actual excavation photographs from Vance's first-hand experiences will be shown from Montana of various fossils. The ecological mixtures of these fossils are key. The evidence demonstrates a flood deposit. These fossils were laid down rapidly, recently, and under watery conditions. This is exactly what a biblical creationist expects to find.
Pianist and composer Michael Dooley discusses how his belief in Creation and Biblical authority informs his creative work as a professional musician. The presentation will include some short performances of his own compositions, a brief discussion of the science and history of music, and evidence for God’s wonderful design in our minds and bodies that enable us to create and appreciate music.
