Special Sunday afternoon seminar

Melbourne 14 March, the same weekend as Melbourne hosts Australia’s largest ever atheist event, the 2010 Global Atheist Convention, The Rise of Atheism featuring Richard Dawkins and other atheist ‘stars’.

You may well wonder why some of the world’s leading atheists would reject an opportunity to demolish in public the arguments put up by scientists from one of the world’s leading creation groups. (For details of the challenge, and the atheist response, see creation.com/global-atheists.)

Find out the arguments they didn’t want to face up to.
Meet Dr Jonathan Sarfati, author of the world’s bestselling creation book (Refuting Evolution) and of the soon-to-be-released book The Greatest Hoax on Earth? Refuting Dawkins on evolution (a response to Richard Dawkins’ The Greatest Show on Earth: the evidence for evolution)


When? Sunday 14 March 14 2010, 2.00 pm to 7.00 pm (bonus early bird Darwin documentary 1 pm)

Where? Life Ministry Centre (Old Melbourne Rd, Chirnside Park)

Admission: Free (voluntary donation only)

Early bird screening of film Darwin: The Voyage that Shook the World (starts on time)

2.00–3.00 pm

Session 1

Don Batten

Dr Don Batten

Evolution: the key to unbelief

Atheists’ writings show it’s vital for the church not to be bluffed into retreat on Genesis. Today’s discoveries on genetics and DNA reveal why they won’t debate informed creationists.

3.00–3.20 pm


3.20–4.25 pm

Session 2

Carl Wieland

Dr Carl Wieland

Surrounded by evidence

Countering unbelief through the rocks and fossils.

4.25–4.45 pm


4.45–5.30 pm

Session 3

Jonathan Sarfati

Dr Jonathan Sarfati

Evolution: no first cell, and not enough time

Belief in a cell that made itself underpins evolution/atheism, but it’s blind faith. And the ‘millions of years’ evaporate under scientific scrutiny, too.

5.30–6.00 pm


6.00–7.00 pm

Session 4

Question and Answer panel time (all three speakers)
Resources tables stay open for a brief time afterwards
