Answering Skeptics: Richard Dawkins

with Carl Kerby of Reasons for Hope

Carl Kerby - click for bio
Carl Kerby

We have the chance to hear from Carl Kerby, one of our most-wanted speakers, but not on our normal schedule. So this will be our October and November meetings.

Richard Dawkins is one of the most antagonistic of the "new atheists". In this talk Carl takes a video that Dr. Dawkins made in which he ambushed the then-President of Concerned Women for America, Wendy Wright, and addresses the questions that he raised.

Christians need to be aware that if Richard Dawkins is using an argument, hundreds of those that follow his every move will use it. Using secular sources Carl will show that the claims that he makes are not difficult to answer. The problem is not in the evidence, the problem is in the interpretation of the evidence.

What about homo erectus? ... What about homo habilus? ... What about austrolopithecus? ... What about children having "gill slits" as they develop in the womb? These plus many more questions are addressed in this talk.

Halloween Outreach kit - click for AIG's store

Halloween Items at Answers in Genesis Store

Answers in Genesis has a "kit" to educate yourself about the origins of Halloween, and to use the opportunity to reach out to trick-or-treaters! The kit includes a new DVD, booklets on the history of Halloween, and tracts that look like million dollar bills, featuring Noah's Ark or a dinosaur. (Each is also sold individually.) This is the ONE day of the year they come to you and ask for a handout. Give them something better than just candy!

50 DVD's for $50!

Illustra Media is the source of most of those DVD's that we give away when someone becomes a member, or renews their membership.* Their quality is unsurpassed by anything in a science program on TV -- but they show how living things and the universe are made by an Intelligent Designer, not blind chance! You and your accomplices can help undermine the Enemy's attacks on God's reputation as Creator. Interested? See their ad here.

*(If YOU have become a member or renewed your membership and somehow did NOT get your DVD, contact us!)

Becoming Bold

with Carl Kerby of Reasons for Hope

Carl Kerby

The church is losing its next generation. Anywhere from 50 to 88 percent of the young people raised in Bible-believing Christian homes walk away from the church after age 18. In this talk, Carl examines the causes of this huge exodus, but then shows that by starting with the Bible, solutions can be offered to this massive problem. Young people in our churches need to know how to stand uncompromisingly on the authority and accuracy of the Bible so that they can answer skeptical questions.
