This is an (online) conference that offers possible answers to some of the most puzzling
questions in earth science, such as:
Why do we find amino acids on asteroids, and limestone in comets?
What produced the world's massive volume of sedimentary rock?
Why is the near side of the moon so different from the far side?
Why are there seashells on top of Mt. Everest?
Why is radioactivity associated with continental granites?
The Hydroplate Theory offers a Biblical, yet scientific, scenario how the global flood of Noah's day completely
rearranged the surface of the globe. It solves many of the problems that plague other tectonic theories. It
out-performed NASA in predicting what would be found in comets and asteroids.
In addition to a dozen presentations by eight speakers, we will also offer a virtual “field trip” to the Grand
Canyon to find out how it may have formed.
Yes, you can afford this conference! We only suggest a small donation, which is optional, and left up to you
(suggested donation $20, students $10).
Not only was the Tapeats Sandstone rapidly deposited at the beginning of the Flood, but detailed investigation
demonstrates it was folded while still soft as the Flood ended. Conventional geologists insist the Tapeats was
deposited 502 million years ago, and then folded about 70 million years ago, but this evidence emphatically
rules out 500+ million years.
Below are links to a slide and a
printable flyer announcing the meeting, for each venue. If your church uses slides on screen for announcements,
would you ask your pastor to include this? Or it can be used in printed bulletins.
Notice that our 6 winners come from 4 states, so having a live presentation event would not work. Their award
certificates and prize monies are being sent by mail.

Sadly, after 26 years, 2023 was the last year for the Student Essay Contest. In May, the MCF Board felt that the
costs and effort were not justified by ongoing low participation. Added to that, it is now possible for papers
to be written by various artificial intelligence softwares, and distinguishing human-written from AI-created
might be difficult or impossible.
So, THANKS!!! to all who made the effort to write papers, and to their parents and teachers who guided their
efforts, in 2023 and all the earlier years! We sincerely hope the effort to write sharpened your thinking, your
ability, and your appreciation for the amazing world and universe that highlight the existence of the Creator!
In the future, instead of spending $1500/year for prizes, MCF is looking for practical ways to support students
desire to participate in creation camps, such as Kerby's Equip Retreat camps. We are also expecting to work with Judson College on more
local apologetics/creation camps!
Irreducible Complexity describes a system that requires all of its parts for it to function,
for instance, a mousetrap.
Cells need to make molecular machines, such as ATP synthase rotors. To make each protein to produce a
rotor often requires hundreds of steps, but to produce those proteins, the functioning rotor is
The 'spaghettiﬁcation' of irreducible complexity is a true Achille's heel for evolution.
