MCF March 7 & 8:

Blind to the Obvious

with Bruce Malone of Search for the Truth

Bruce Malone - click for bio

Evidence from every area of science supports Biblical creation. This talk gives a whirlwind tour of the major scientific disciplines to show how science itself was designed by God to reveal the obvious truth about the reality of our recent creation. So why are so many people seemingly blind to this overwhelmingly clear evidence for Biblical truth? The answer to that intriguing question involves an understanding of what the Bible means when it states that mankind was made in the "Image of God" and forms the climax of this presentation. This is a perfect talk for someone being introduced to the evidence for creation for the first time - so bring a visitor!

Age level: about 8th grade. Walt will explain basics like powers of 10, but a very basic concept of algebra would be helpful.

Student Essay Contest is ON -- with Increased Prizes!

The annual MCF contest is on, and we've already had one essay submitted! But the BIG NEWS is that ...(drumroll here)...

Prizes have at least doubled!
Top Senior High award is now $500 (up from $250); the lowest Junior High award is now $100 (up from $25)

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]

April 4-5

What about ... Fossils?

with Carl Kerby of Reasons for Hope

Carl Kerby - click for bio

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.
