Actually, the question really does
boil down to the issue of supernatural versus natural. But,
since our public schools have a "no biblical beliefs" approach
to the theory of origins and the science classroom, that only
leaves the "it happened naturally" view.
To that end, the most successful,
and widely accepted theory of modern times is the theory of Darwinian
evolution. Generation after generation has been told (through
public schools, museums, TV programs, etc.) that through mutations, natural selection, chance
and adaptation we have journeyed from a single-celled
organism, over hundreds of millions of years, to emerge as the
beings we are today. This is widely regarded, and
taught, as fact.
But, is it? Many scientists
today are questioning that idea. It has been over 140
years since Charles Darwin's book, Origin of Species, was published. Testing many aspects of the theory have
actually yielded data which indicates that Darwinian evolution
is quite impossible - and it certainly is not observed to be
happening. To be sure, living things can, and do, change
from time to time. Bacteria can become resistant to chemicals.
Finches (as Darwin observed) can change over time (but, the
finch stayed a finch). But, that is not "evolution" as
we understand it and are taught today. Most people, when
they think of evolution, think in terms of lizards turning
into birds, fish turning into frogs, apes turning into people,
etc. This is the "evolution" that is not observed
and is not supported by scientific observation.
nfortunately, many people
today (including Christians) have no idea what the real
issues are. Many believe in evolution simply because
it's what they were taught. Many Christians cannot answer
basic questions their neighbors, friends, or co-workers have
regarding origins. Many Christian young people are often
very disillusioned when they get into the real world, because
they don't know how to answer these questions. The faith
of many of these can be severely shaken.
Our seminars are designed, not only to promote an
understanding of the scientific problems regarding
evolutionary theory, but to educate people regarding the whole
issue of the biblical "creation model", which includes the
fall of man (sin entering the picture), the flood of
Noah's day, the events at Babel, the importance of the Genesis
record, etc. These sessions promote the biblical version of origins - the version with meaning to life,
a real sense of values, morality and order.
We have put together a series of informative and
thought-provoking seminars that will educate and equip
Christians to deal with this issue in a realistic manner.
How are the seminars conducted?
These are not dry lectures.
Our approach is to make this as interesting and understandable
as possible so the information will be remembered. We
use PowerPoint, video, puppets (and other props) and sometimes
live animal demonstrations. The use of props and humor
add to the interest.
