If you are between ages 11 and 18, you're eligible to write a paper on any topic on the creation/evolution issue. You would write from the perspective that God is the Creator and Genesis chapters
1-11 literally mean what they say, but you will need to look at claims on both sides. Be logical. Be clear and organized. And be on time: essays are due by April 30. [more info]
What about ... Fossils?
This entertaining talk will challenge the belief that the fossil record supports the teaching of millions of years. A proper understanding of what the ‘evidence’ shows in the fossil record
is vital to having Biblical answers in today’s world. We will cover how bias and world-views affect the way that we see the world around us. Questions such as:
- “What do fossils really show us?”
- “Doesn’t it take millions of years for fossil formation?”
- “What about the phylogenetic charts of many animal families ‘proving’ evolution?”
will all be discussed. You will learn how to look at these things with a critical eye. The information in this talk will help prepare you to reconnect the Bible to the real world.
Locations, times: same as for the meetings at left.
