"The Flood"


Peter prophesied that Noah’s Flood would be ignored in the last days.  This has happened.  Noah’s Flood has been discredited by science.  Their evidence led Christian scholars to present local flood explanations in commentaries even though scripture demands a global flood.  This session examines the Biblical description of the flood and shows that the Bible accurately describes the geological evidence for a global flood.  A Jim Dick painting shows how cataclysmic the flood was.  An interesting connection between Darwin and the flood is also presented.  In the conclusion, Peter tells us that we are in the last days, and he gives us last-day advice. (45-55 minutes)


"Adam Saw Stars"


The Biblical time-frame of about 6,000 years does not fit with light from distant stars that takes billions of years to arrive on Earth.  Creationists have proposed solutions, but each has flaws.  This session examines what the Bible teaches about space and how that resolves the starlight issue.  What is space?  Science does not have a definitive answer.  Until science understands space how can it understand light, gravity, or magnetism that travel through space?  This session shows how much science still has to learn and that answers to questions can be found in the Bible. (50-60 minutes)


"Eternal God"


In Romans one Paul shares two characteristics about God that God has made plain to everyone.  Quotes from atheistic scientists show that God has made this plain even to them.  This session shows why every area of science requires billions of years once they reject God.  Billions of years is the wrong answer, but it is the best, wrong answer.  It is the only way science can possibly make the universe work without God.  The session summarizes key issues in science to show that the Biblical time-frame of about 6,000 years is completely reliable. (40-50 minutes)




This session examines one of the most important issues in the creation account – marriage.  God is One, and He wants humans to learn to be one.  This topic is refreshing to have in a creation seminar because it does not focus on science.  God has a plan for us, and a key component of that plan is learning to be one.  The differences between male and female that are described in the creation account make this session humorous and helpful in marriages. (40-50 minutes)


"Polemic Against Evolution" by Dr. Robert Carter


This session examines the five areas emphasized by repetition in the creation account.  These areas directly oppose the five fundamental tenets of evolution.  From the very beginning, God specifically addressed evolution and told us that He did not use any part of evolution in His creation.  A second part of this session examines computer simulations of evolution and why it is impossible for evolution to happen.  God wants his people to know he did not use evolution.  This is especially important in our day where many Christians are accepting evolution. (40-50 minutes)


"God's Creation Account"


This session examines Genesis 1 using a fresh translation that allows events to be visualized.  Key issues include the five words defined within the account, the difference between species and kinds, and the difference between what God created and what He made.  Paintings by renowned artist, Jim Dick, assist in understanding each event.  Genesis 1 has ten different interpretations.  At least nine of them are wrong.  It is important to understand exactly what God did.  (50-60 minutes)


"God's Creative Greatness"


This presentation visualizes amazing facts of our universe.  It follows Isaiah 40:12-26 to show God’s greatness.  Special emphasis is placed on the enormity of the universe and the intricately small particles of which it consists.  The session concludes by looking at why God created such a majestic and beautiful universe. (25-30 minutes)


"Radiometric Dating Assumptions"


Science claims that radiometric dating proves the Earth is billions of years old.  This seminar examines key assumptions of Carbon Dating and Potassium Argon Dating methods.  When the assumptions are changed, the dates fit the Biblical time-frame.  None of the assumptions can be proven at this point.  However the Biblical assumptions make more sense.  The main point of this session is to show that science has much to learn.  When more is learned, radiometric dating will change. (40-50 minutes)
