Faith Is not a Four-Letter Word

with Jay Seegert of The Starting Point Project

It is a common misconception that skeptics base all their beliefs on "facts", while Christians simply have "faith," which amounts to nothing more than wishful thinking and belief in fairy tales… or as Mark Twain stated, "Faith is believing in what you know ain’t so!" This presentation shows how incorrect this view is and also powerfully equips Christians to share and defend their faith without having to memorize lots of facts or have degrees in science. It is very encouraging, eye-opening and easy for all to understand.

Editing God's Creation

with Dan Mikal

Dan Mikal

The last time Dan was with us, he awed us with information about the 3D layout of DNA in the nucleus, how instructions transcend an individual chromosome, and how non-DNA information makes a fertilized egg cell develop for several cell divisions before the DNA is even needed! The information content in a cell has many ways of lining up to create different functions! It's one level of complexity on top of another, and another, and another...!

The lastest astounding finding is that the cell is programmed, in its DNA, to edit its own DNA under certain circumstances! Can one seriously believe that this awesome functionality came about by chance?!

The system is called "CRISPR-Cas9", which is short for "Clustered Regulatory Interspaced Short Palandromic Repeats". But don't let the technical term scare you. Dan knows how to make technical information understandable to laypersons, and it's always amazing!
