WHAT IS EVOLUTION? Willie Herath, Youth Pastor and Author of the book, "What is Evolution?" gave a presentation titled, "WHAT IS EVOLUTION?" detailing his search among federal, state, and local governmental bodies and educational institutions for an agreed upon definition, answering the question. Guess what! There is no standard agree-upon definition - probably for deliberate reasons.

FINGERPRINT OF INTELLIGENCE
Andy McIntosh, DSc, FIMA, C.Math, FInstE, CEng, FInstP, MIGEM, FRAeS, gave a presentation titled, "FINGERPRINT OF INTELLIGENCE: THERMODYNAMICS AND INFORMATION".
About our Speaker: The initials above stand for: DSc - Doctor of Science ( a research degree above Ph.D.); FIMA - Fellow of the Institute of Mathematics; CMath - Chartered Mathematician; FEI - Fellow of the Energy Institure; CEng - Chartered Engineer; FInstP - Fellow of the Institute of Physics; MIGEM - Member of the Institute of Engineers and Managers; FRAeS - Fellow of the Royal Aeronautical Society.
Professor Andrew Charles McIntosh is a Visiting Research Professor at the University of Leeds, England, where he has lectured and researched in the field of Combustion and Explosions for over 20 years. His research has included investigations involving fluids (the interaction of pressure waves with flames) as well as solids. In the area of heterogeneous combustion he is interested in the safety of reactive substances, which can include traditional fuels such as coal, but also may include agrochemicals, some of which are now being used widely to increase crop yields, but in bulk can have unusual ignition properties. Unusual chemical behavior is also being studied in collaboration with industry, with a view to developing carbon capture reactors for energy generation.
In the last few years Professor McIntosh has been involved in research in the area of biomimetics where the minute combusion chamber of the bombardier beetle has inspired a patented novel spray technology. This led to research first sponsored by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), followed by extensive funding from industry to apply the technology to fuel injectors, pharmaceutical sprays, aerosols, and fire extinguishers. Professor McIntosh is a trained mathematician and has worked in aerodynamics at Cranfield University and the Royal Aircraft Establishment (Bedford) before going to Leeds where he gained a DSc in 1998 and a personal chair in 2000. He became a Fellow of the Institute of Physics in 2002 and in 2003 was elected a Fellow of the Royal Aeronautical Society. He has over 180 publication in Journals and Conferences and has lectured widely internationally on these subjects and on the scientific question of origins on which the discipline of thermodynamics has a fundamental bearing.
Professor McIntosh has also been named a Logos Research Associate.
Anahope.com streamed a live debate between Professor Andy McIntosh and evangelist-for-Christ-turned-evangelist-for-atheism, Dan Barker on September 26. The debate took place in San Diego.

We watched the movie, "IS GENESIS HISTORY?" hosted by Del Tacket, Creator of "The Truth Project." IS GENESIS HISORY?is a fascinating new look at the biblical, historical, and scientific evidence for Creation and the Flood. Learn from more than a dozen scientists and scholars as they explore the world around us in light of Genesis. Dr. Del Tacket, creator of "The Truth Project," hikes through canyons, climbs up mountains, and dives below the sea in an exploration of two competing views... one compelling truth.
Those who have long attended meetings of the Creation Science Fellowship of Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa may have recognized some of the scientists featured in this film. Drs. Steve Austin, Paul Nelson, Andrew Snelling, Kevin Anderson, and Danny Faulkner have all spoken to the Creation Science Fellowship in years past. Drs. Robert Carter, Marcus Ross, and Larry Vardiman have also spoken at creation conferences held here on campus.

SURPRISE… THE BIBLE EXPLAINS THAT!
Jay Seegert, B.S. Physics, A.S. Engineering Technology, gave a presentation titled “Surprise… the Bible Explains That!” (Basic premise of this talk is that fairly often scientists discover things that are very confusing to them and hard to make sense of. However, the Bible explains very well what was so perplexing to the secularist and it fits in very naturally with the Christian worldview.)
About our Speaker: Jay Seegert is the Co-Founder and Managing Director for The Starting Point Project (TheStartingPointProject.com) and the author of “Creation & Evolution: Compatible or In Conflict?”. He has conducted over 2,000 lectures, mostly in the US, but also in in 5 other countries.
Jay has degrees in both Physics (University of Wisconsin-Whitewater) and Engineering Technology (John Brown University, Arkansas). He has been speaking on Creation, Evolution and the Authority of Scripture for over 31 years, as well as many other apologetic topics. He is also a representative speaker for Ratio Christi (a global movement equipping university students and faculty to give historical, philosophical, and scientific reasons for following Jesus Christ). Additionally, Jay serves on the Board of Directors for Logos Research Associates and is one of their Research Associates.
Leonard Brand, Ph.D. (Paleontology) gave a presentation titled, "CAN THE BIBLE INFORM SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH?"
About our speaker: Leonard Brand is Professor of Biology and Paleontology in the Department of Earth and Biological Sciences, at Loma Linda University. He received his PhD at Cornell University in 1970 and has been on the LLU faculty since then. He teaches courses in paleontology, vertebrate biology, and philosophy of science. His research focuses on the processes of fossilization and the geological factors that influence preservation of fossils. He has published over 35 scientific research papers and numerous articles in church publications. He has published three books, which have been translated into one or more other languages. He has received a Zapara Award for Distinguished Teaching, a best student paper award at national meetings, and a Distinguished Service Award from LLU. His strongest long-term interest has been developing a Bible-centered approach to the integration of faith and science. The new 3rd edition of the textbook, "Faith, Reason, and Earth History: A Paradigm of Earth and Biological Origin by Intelligent Design," by Drs. Leonard Brand and Arthur Chadwick is available for FREE at https://www.adventistlearningcommunity.com/faith-reason-earth-history. Hard copies are available from Amazon.com, or from www.universitypress.andrews.edu.
Dr. Brand's first example of how the Bible can inform research dealt with the origin of track ways in Coconino Sandstones of the Grand Canyon. Conventional wisdom declares the Coconino Sandstones were laid down as sand dunes in a dry, desert environment, millions of years ago. But, the Bible's account of Earth history suggests a chronology of only thousands, not millions or billions of year. This constraint makes the Genesis Flood the best candidate for both the laying down of sediment deposits and the channeling of the Grand Canyon. This perspective drives questions that never occur in the conventional paradigm. These include, "Can animals leave such finally detailed track ways in desert sand dunes as are found in Coconino Sandstones?" Experiments demonstrate they cannot. However, experiments also demonstrate that amphibians walking on underwater sand waves can and do leave precisely the kind of finely detailed track ways found in the Coconino.
The Bible informs research in places where other worldviews do not even think to look, and thereby inspires scientific discovery.

WHAT ABOUT GLOBAL WARMING? Heinz Lycklama, Ph.D., (Nuclear Physics) gave a presentation titled, "WHAT ABOUT GLOBAL WARMING?" What About Global Warming? Description: The issue of Global Warming (GW), now referred to as Climate Change (CC), has received a lot of attention in the press. The UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has issued its Fifth Assessment Report. The IPCC claims that GW is occurring at a rapid rate, that GW is largely due to the increased burning of fossil fuel, and that we face dire consequences if we don’t cut back on greenhouse gases released into the atmosphere. The Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change (NIPCC) has concluded that Nature, not Human Activity, rules the Climate. We explore the science behind these different conclusions.
GW alarmists tell us, in effect, that “the end is near” unless drastic state-imposed restrictions are imposed now on our consumption of CO2 emitting fossil fuels – despite God’s promise to Noah – Gen. 8:22. Other climate scientists claim that any GW is largely due to natural causes such as sun irradiance, the El Nino phenomenon in the Pacific Ocean, the Pacific Decadal Oscillation, etc. This raises some legitimate questions – 1) What are the facts? 2) What is the appropriate biblical perspective? 3) Should we be concerned? and 4) Is there another agenda?
A short video produced by The Idea Channel entitled History of Climate Change in Greenland provides a historical perspective on GW.
Heinz has done an independent analysis of the GW issue (see www.heinzlycklama.com/gw) and sent the results of his findings and recommendations to many of the leading climate scientists around the world.
Gen. 8:22, “While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.”

TEXTUAL EVIDENCE SUPPORTING GENESIS
John David Lehman, B.M.E., M.Div, D.Phil, Ph.D., gave a presentation titled, "TEXTUAL EVIDENCE SUPPORTING THE HISTORICITY OF GENESIS."
Because of the foundational importance of Genesis, it is not surprising that the forces of unbelief have attacked the book which shows us who God is, who we are, what our problem is and God’s solution to that problem. As humanistic theories of the enlightenment gained control of Europe in the 1650s, the intellectual classes of Western society were convinced by the 1800s that the world was vastly older than indicated by the Bible. Charles Darwin, building on the skepticism concerning the plain teaching of Genesis on the earth’s age was able to bring about an abandonment of the traditional interpretation of Genesis in favor of a full-fledged evolutionary paradigm and a non-theistic world view. The reign of evolution/long-age theory was a major factor in turning Western culture from Christianity to naturalistic humanism. Higher critical theories of scripture assumed evolutionary development and negated supernatural revelation, shredding the normal understanding of biblical truth. Because Christian institutions of learning nearly always accommodated the Bible to “scientific” claims rather than such claims to the Bible, Christianity has lost its message and its authority in the minds of most of the world’s population. Dr. Lehman will show not only the lack of support but the impossibility for this progressive creationism both from the Bible and from true science. About our speaker: J. David Lehman was born in Des Moines, Iowa sometime in the last century and has been steadily growing older ever since without ever actually reaching maturity. He attended public schools, where he distinguished himself by not getting in nearly as much trouble as he would have if the authorities had been aware of everything. Dave went to the University of Minnesota where he majored in Engineering and wrote lengthy scholarly papers filled with sentences that even he did not understand. He graduated and eventually got a job with McDonnell Douglas designing fighter planes for Iran, Israel, Germany, Japan, and the U.S., which could make it a little confusing for the ground crew should these countries ever go to war. He then graduated from Grace Theological Seminary where he managed to bluff his way through four years of Hebrew and four years of Greek without ever actually learning either. He now holds two Ph.D.'s but so far nobody has been able to guess what they would be in. He taught HVAC Engineering at Purdue University, which included equipment sizing and construction estimating using Timerline software. He does consulting for HVAC engineering projects from time to time.
He taught Creation to college students at Calvary Chapel but after a year of trying to get his students to stop writing things like, "Enclosed pleasel find the enclosed enclosures," he eventually realized that it was hopeless. So, in 2012 he decided to go on the radio with a talk show, which has been getting a lot of traffic, yet another indication of the worsening drug crisis.
Dave has written a number of short but harmful papers including: Understanding Women, and, Humility and How I Attained it. Reviewers have commented that, "they contain a tremendous amount of whitespace.:

PROGRAMMED FILLING AND SPECIATION Dr. Joseph Kezele, M.D., gave a presentation titled, "PROGRAMMED FILLING AND SPECIATION: HAVING FUN WITH DOGS."
This is a fun talk featuring dogs that first makes the distinction between species and the “biblical kind”. It then reviews what Scripture has to say about Noah’s flood and the animals, each “according to its kind”. Artificial selection (breeding) and then natural selection and programmed filling are discussed, explaining how natural selection is believed to happen by evolutionists, and how genetics demonstrates programmed filling. Then the post flood world, including the single Ice Age is presented, with the explanation of how that brought about the environmental pressures to trigger rapid speciation. A final contrast is given between the demand of evolution for new information to be added to an initially very small gene pool by random chance events through mutations causing the development of new kinds, and the biblical concept of starting with a large gene pool, which is divided by migration and natural selection leading to loss of genetic information to cause change within each kind.
About our speaker: Joseph Kezele studied the sciences and music at the University of Arizona, while earning his B.A. in Russian in 1971, and his M.D. in 1975. He then completed a Pediatric Residency and practiced Emergency Medicine for 25 years in the Phoenix area, and was a diplomate of the American Board of Emergency Medicine and fellow of the American College of Emergency Physicians. He is now retired from the practice of medicine, serves as President of the Arizona Origin Science Association, is Adjunct Professor at Arizona Christian University in Phoenix, teaching Human Genetics, Cell and Molecular Biology, Pathophysiology, Organic Chemistry and Creation Science Apologetics. Dr, Kezele has also been named a Logos Research Associate. He serves as Chairman of Deacons and teaches Creation Science Evangelism at Black Mountain Baptist Church in Cave Creek, Arizona. He has participated in over 20 foreign mission trips, teaching medicine, standard evangelism and creation science evangelism in India, Zambia, Mexico, Russia, Latvia, Lithuania, the Ukraine, Bosnia-Herzegovina, and Armenia. Dr. Kezele is one of the principle presenters in the Institute for Creation Research’s 4 DVD series Made in His Image. He is scheduled to return to the Ukraine this May for three weeks to teach a series on Creation Science Evangelism as part of the activities prompted by the proclamation of the President of the Ukraine recognizing the 400th anniversary of Martin Luther sparking the reformation in Germany.
