7:00- Calvin Smith- Genesis; The Missing Piece of the Puzzle
Most church leaders agree that the western world is becoming ‘less Christian’ every year. Did this happen by chance, or is there a deeper issue? Like a giant puzzle, the church can’t seem to find the ‘missing piece’. Filled with relevant topics including science, ethics, evangelism, morality, history and Christian theology, this talk explains the key controversies surrounding the creation/evolution topic and equips Christians to understand why it is far from a side issue in the church.
8:00- 8:30pm- Break (Refreshments and resources available)
8:30- 9:30pm- Dr Jim Mason- Radiometric Dating;
How old – or young – is the earth?
The phrase ‘tens of millions of years’ and other similar ones are firmly ensconced in textbooks, museum displays and children’s books and are used routinely in media coverage almost daily. Evolution requires such long ages to have even the remotest chance of achieving what its proponents claim. On the other hand, a straightforward reading of the Bible clearly indicates that the earth is only about 6,000 years old. This talk discusses from where these alleged long ages come and then looks at evidence from geology, radiometric dating and other areas to show that the evidence, in fact, supports the age as derived from the Bible.

9:30am- Richard Fangrad- Noah's Flood Key to understanding the Earth's History
The global flood described in Genesis 6-9 provides the basis for understanding the geology of the Earth's surface. Using examples from around the world you will learn about what the flood was like and see what it accomplished. Understanding what the flood was like and what the power of moving water can do, helps us see how new discoveries in geology are best explained by the biblical record of a world-destroying flood.
10:30-11:00am Break (Refreshments and resources available)
11:00-12:00 The Distant Starlight Dilemma
Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star. How can I see you from so far? If galaxies are billions of light-years away from us and light takes a year to travel a light-year, then how are we able to see light from these galaxies if the earth is only about 6,000 years old as is indicated by the chronologies in the Bible? In this talk you will hear about recent advances in cosmology that not only provide a straightforward, scientifically rigorous explanation of this apparent perplexing dilemma but that also eliminate some of the ad hoc “fixes” added on to the Big Bang.
12:00-1:00pm Lunch Break
1:00-2:00pm- Calvin Smith- Codes and Creation
Could life happen by chance? This presentation examines the little known Laws of Information Theory and how they completely destroy the materialistic concepts that are taught as fact in schools and in the media. Examines the spiritual nature of the concept of information and how the only explanation for the incredible complexity of the biological information in living things is that the incredible God of the Bible created it that way!
2:00-2:30pm- Break (Refreshments and resources available)
2:30-3:30pm- Richard Fangrad- Defending Genesis in a Scientific Age
The Bible says that animals and plants are to reproduce ‘after their kind’. This talk discusses biological change over time, clarifying that the type of change observed has nothing to do with ‘molecules-to-man evolution, it is actually the very opposite. Natural Selection, anti-biotic resistance and genetic mutations are discussed. These topics help us understand how the great variety of animals that we have today could have descended from those on Noah’s Ark, adapting to different post-Flood climates, and that biological ‘molecules-to-man’ evolution is an impossibility.

6:00-8:00pm- Screening of Evolution’s Achilles’ Heels Documentary
CMI’s award winning documentary, Evolution’s Achilles Heels, will be shown. In 2014 CMI undertook a major new offensive to take even more ground in the battle to proclaim the truth of the Bible. The aim was to simply and concisely expose evolution’s fatal weaknesses and this groundbreaking documentary does so in spectacular fashion! An awesome outreach opportunity, invite a friend! Tickets are only $2 per person.
