The Horror of the Flood

Could you explain where the water for a world-wide flood would have come from, & where it all went
afterward? Many Christians can’t. Understanding the flood (the purpose, causes, aftermath and evidence) is very
important to an understanding of a biblically sound creation model. This session covers the basics of this event, and also includes a video & PowerPoint presentation of the “Hydro plate Theory” – a biblically accurate and scientifically feasible portrayal of the flood event.

The Mystery of the Dinosaurs

This session provides a biblical alternative to the standard explanation for these creatures, and answers
the basic questions everyone has on the subject – What were dinosaurs? When did they live? What really happened to
them? Does the Bible talk about them?

The Stricken Earth

The earth is wearing out just like the Bible said it would. The earth is undergoing changes that can be
seen everywhere. Why do volcanoes erupt? Why are there earthquakes? Why do rocks fall from the sky? What are
comets? Why are there unique weather patterns? Is the earth warming? If so, why? Why are all continents shifting
toward the Pacific? What produces El Niño’s? What does the mid-Atlantic Ridge have to do with the west Pacific? Etc.
The answers are all related & might surprise you!

The Serpent!

The fear of snakes is understandable. Right at the outset of history, the Bible records an astounding
verbal exchange between the serpent and the second human God made. Immediately following the results of this
exchange, everything fell apart! Mankind, the serpent, and even nature itself were all placed under a curse! How is it
that these creatures can now survive, find food, find a mate…and even move! Even though there is a specific curse
placed on this creature, they still display amazing design, and some features will astound you!


The book of Genesis comes under more attack than any other book in the Bible. Specifically, the accounts of creation, original sin, and the global flood are at the forefront. It’s understandable that secularists would criticize it because it stands squarely in the path of their evolutionary views. However, much more troubling is the question of why so many Christians dilute the Bible here!

With fascinating illustrations, this session contrasts the evolution model with the creation model from a historic standpoint through a look at what many ancient cultures were able to accomplish. These accomplishments baffle us even today! How did ancient man do these things? This session contrasts some of these civilizations to our own and has a personal application.

While most people’s negative reaction to spiders is understandable, those willing to suspend their disgust long enough for a closer look will discover a hidden world of incredible design! Not only do spiders benefit us by consuming massive quantities of insect pests, they do so using ingenious tactics. Some hunt and pounce, others build traps and wait. Many are cleverly disguised or camouflaged. They can spin up to six different kinds of silk for various purposes, each a marvel of engineering!

The presence of instinct in animals provides some of the best evidence for original design in nature. All creatures have it, and the wide array of abilities is staggering! However, it doesn’t stop there. From instinct we move on to symbiotic relationships, particularly “mutualism”, which is nothing short of impossible from a naturalistic perspective. Spiritual blindness is the only answer to this dilemma that many otherwise reasonable people are caught in. However, even Christians can sometimes fall prey to compromises…
