Next Regular Meeting: Tuesday, December 12, 2023, at 7 pm
Coming to SABBSA in December
"The Rocks Cry Out" #8 - The Grand Canyon + Dr. Daniel Harris
In December we will show the "Rocks Cry Out" video #8 - "Grand Canyon." This series from "Search for the Truth Ministries" makes it crystal clear God is the creator of all we see, and the Bible teaches real history! The Grand Canyon is a perfect example of the evidence supporting a worldwide flood.
At the end of this evening we will have a 10-minute presentation by
Dr. Daniel Harris on his new research.
We will also so have a wealth of Creation gift ideas for Christmas including
Search for the Truth's great devotional books available at 50% off retail prices.
Please join us in December for creation science and biblical apologetics teaching you will find nowhere else in Bexar County.
Upcoming Movies in Theaters connected to Creation
"The Ark and the Darkness" is coming to Theaters March 20-21, 2024!
If you want to see what Noah's Flood was really like, this is the film to watch! Thanks to Sevenfold Films, this will be the most visually stunning and biblically-accurate film about Noah's Flood ever produced. This film will also clearly and boldly include an un-diluted gospel presentation. SABBSA has already volunteered to staff a resource table at a San Antonio venue to provide free creation resources! Google Ark in the Darkness to see a trailer for this film.

"Discovering Dinosaurs" with Dr. Brian Thomas
In November SABBSA welcomed Dr. Brian Thomas with the Institute for Creation Research (ICR). ICR is and has been at the forefront of Creation Science Research for more than five decades. Dr. Thomas is a research scientist at ICR and holds a Ph.D. in paleobiochemistry from the University of Liverpool. He is an expert in the field of soft parts tissue in fossil remains and the rates of breakdown of living tissues.
Dr. Thomas gave us a mutltimedia presentation titled "Discovering Dinosaurs" giving us insights into the latest discoveries about dinosaurs and how they fit into the biblical worldview. He is the author of Dinosaurs and the Bible; co-author of Parks Across America: Viewing God's Wonders Through a Creationist Lens, Fascinating Creatures: Evidence of Christ's Handiwork, and Human Origins; and a contributor to Creation Basics & Beyond, Guide to Dinosaurs, and Dinosaurs: God's Mysterious Creatures.
October 10, 2023
"The Rocks Cry Out" #7 - "Science is a Tool"
The "Rocks Cry Out" creation curriculum is a fascinating video series from
Search for the Truth Ministries and our friend Bruce Malone. It connects science & history to the Bible.
Lesson 7 - Science is a Tool shows how the very laws of science support the fact that we have a Creator!
This video was well received by our largest crowd of the year so far, including visitors from the Netherlands!
September 12, 2023
Supposed Contradictions in the Bible?
Where did Cain's wife come from? Jacob and the Speckled Sheep? Did God make mathematical mistakes? Is biblical history in error? Are there sections of the Bible which contradict one another?
Skeptics have been making claims that the Bible is full of errors for hundreds of years. We examined these claims and showed that the Bible's original manuscripts were error free, and that the Bible means what it says and can be counted on 100% of the time as God's Word and divine guidance for us.
Summer of 2023 at Crestview Baptist Church
Summer long Creation Seminar
In the summer of 2022 Crestview Baptist did a 6-week study of Scott Lane's book "What if God Wrote the Bible?" Mr. Lane returned to Crestview Baptist summer 2023 on Wednesdays evenings to present a full creation science seminar.
This summer we covered-
6/21 Introduction to Creation Theories
6/28 Darwin and Radiometric Dating
7/5 Underpinnings: Fossils, Physics, Genetics and Babel
7/12 Young Earth Evidence
7/19 Incredible Creatures that Defy Evolution - Intelligent Design
7/26 Dinosaurs and the Bible
8/9 Biology and Symbiotic Relationships
8/16 Lucy Unveiled and Bad Examples of Evolution
August 8, 2023
The Discovery of Genesis in Chinese
Based on the book "The Discovery of Genesis" by Reverend C. H. Kang and
Dr. Ethel Nelson. We showed 118 examples of Chinese pictographs which give unmistakable evidence the ancient Chinese' had extensive knowledge of Genesis some 4500 years ago when the Chinese written language was invented. This is 1100 years before Moses penned Genesis!
It showed how the development of this language fits well within the biblical history of the dispersion after Babel. We also showed the Chinese were once a monotheistic people who knew of the God of the Bible, and had intimate and detailed knowledge of His Word.
July 11, 2023
Dinosaurs and the Bible
Most people are taken aback by this title. Don't be, we are talking about real history.
We saw accounts from the Bible of encounters of man with dinosaurs like the Brachiosaurus and the Plesiosaur. We showed evidence for both the lack of "missing links" between dinosaur kinds and the incredibly weak evidence for the supposed evolution of dinosaurs into birds. We saw how Noah could have taken dinosaurs onto the Ark.
The vast dinosaur graveyards found round the world give great evidence for this deluge and how the bulk of all life on Earth died in it. We saw evidence from South America and around the world showing man lived with dinosaurs very recently. All of this evidence is shown to fit within the creation account from the Bible. This is our most popular program with kids and for schools.
June 13, 2023
Genetics and the Bible
We started with a "DNA 101 Course" for the uninitiated. We covered most of the information with creationist implications in the field of genetics. We saw data from: the Human Genome Project; ENCODE Project; ICR's "Species Project"; and the work of former Cornell University genetics professor, Dr. John Sanford.
This presentation revealed the complexity of how information is coded in the genome, and how this shows it could not have occurred by chance. Dr. Sanford's work reveals how his study of genetics has led him to the conclusion that evolution is impossible at the genetic level and how natural selection is a woefully inadequate process for allowing evolution to occur. This presentation included the latest research dispelling myths about Human and Chimp DNA from Dr. Jeffrey Tompkins with ICR.
FEAST Science Workshops Spring 2023
"The Rocks Cry Out" series, Volume II
We at SABBSA were excited to provide the FEAST Science Workshops for a 19th consecutive year. We shared Episodes 9-12 of
the "Rocks Cry Out" creation curriculum from Search for the Truth Ministries.
May 9, 2023
Lucy Unveiled - Biology and Missing Links
On May 9 Lucy was unmasked as just being an ape and not a missing link! This presentation showed how all of the supposed missing links between man and apes have been exposed as not being transitional forms through years of analysis. We also saw how the horse series, whale evolution and peppered moths have been disproved as evidence for evolution.
April 11, 2023
SABBSA and Bruce Malone at The Christian School at Castle Hills
We were excited and blessed to be a part of a collaboration between SABBSA and Search for the Truth Ministries on April 11 as both Bruce Malone and Scott Lane spoke to over 310 elementary students at The Christian School at Castle Hills.
Mr. Malone presented "The AWE of God" to 140 4th - 6th graders that morning wowing them with the wonders of God's creations. His ministry also provided an Inspired Evidence devotional to every student and teacher at his presentation.
At the same time, Mr. Lane presented "Animals that defy Evolution" to some 170 K-3 students. We also provided every classroom with a copy of the book "Answers to the Top 50 Questions about the Creation and Noah's Flood" as well as gave each teacher a copy of Mr. Lane's book, "What if God Wrote the Bible?"
The students could not have been better behaved nor more receptive than they were. Mr. Malone commented that they were the "best student audience he had spoken to across the country this year!" We thank Castle Hills for having us and for their warm hospitality that day!
April 11, 2023
Discovery and Design
We had a special guest in April with Bruce Malone head of "Search for the Truth Ministries" joining us to give a talk on "Discovery and Design."
Bruce is an ambassador for the prestigious Logos Research Associates and the author of a wealth of fine creation science publications, as well as editor for the series of Creation Devotionals we have come to love. His ministry has been reaching thousands of youth in Fiji, Vanuatu, the Philippines, Peru and Jamaica giving their ministry a truly international impact.
Bruce's "Discovery and Design" presentation looked at specific inventions which have changed human history as a direct result of observing creation. God is both the greatest artist and the ultimate engineer!
February 19-March 26, 2023
"Answers for Life" Creation Series Seminar
This 6-week seminar is targeted especially for youth and young adults who ask the "Big Questions" in life, like "Is there a God?", "Why am I here?" or "Why do bad things happen to good people?" These programs can of course be of interest to anyone of any age.
This seminar met every Sunday from February 19 and through the month of March at Cibolo Valley Baptist Church. We will bring this exciting teaching set to your organization at your request!
The schedule for the seminar was-:
February 19 - Is there a God?; Why am I here?; and What is my Purpose?
February 26 - Why is there pain and suffering?; Why do bad things happen to good people? & Where did Cain's wife come from?
March 5 - Races and Racism; Babel; and Did Humans Evolve from Apes?
March 12 - Doesn't distant starlight prove the Universe is older than the Bible would suggest?
March 19 - The De-Faithing of America: Creation, the Courts & our Culture
March 26 - Incredible Creatures that Defy Evolution
March 14, 2023
Biology and Animals that Defy Evolution
This program shows how the field of biology tears down evolutionary theory. It first presents what has been done in the field including synthesizing DNA and cloning and shows how creation has no problem with these accomplishments.
We then present examples of God's designs in nature ranging from the intricacies of the human eye, to the sea slug, the bombardier beetle, and symbiotic relationships between organisms. We also explore how evolution's recapitulation theory has been disproved by evolutionists, but it is still being used in some places to substantiate abortion. Where there's a design, there is a designer, and we see Him in all of creation!
February 14, 2023
"Incredible Creatures that Defy Evolution" Volume 3
Incredible Creatures That Defy Evolution 3 presents powerful evidence that proves that animal designs can only be attributed to a Creator.
Incredible Creatures 3 continues our look into the fascinating world of animals to reveal sophisticated and complex designs that shake the traditional foundations of evolutionary theory.
Have you ever wondered...
"What kind of bird can kill a lion with a single kick?"
How some dogs can know a storm is brewing before it appears, or can sense when their masters are about to experience a seizure?
Which creature perplexes scientists because of its amazing ability to heal itself even when it sustains horrendous injuries? or
How Emperor Penguins can go two and a half months without eating or drinking?
Our membership greatly enjoyed and were amazed by this fine video series revealing God's master craftsmanship!
Creation Conference at THSSBC in Round Rock Feb. 9-11
Scott Lane presented a 3-day creation seminar during this year's Texas Home School State Basketball Tournament. In addition to the seminar, a wealth of creation materials were distributed during this conference.
The schedule for this seminar is shown below:
Thursday 2/9, 2 pm "What if God Wrote the Bible?"
7 pm "Introduction to Creation Theories"
Friday 2/10, 10 am "Incredible Creatures that Defy Evolution"

7 pm "Doesn't distant Starlight prove the Universe is older than the Bible would suggest?"
Saturday 2/11, 10 am "The De-Faithing of America: Creation in the Courts, our Schools and our Culture"
January 10, 2023
"Incredible Creatures that Defy Evolution" Volume 2
Have you ever wondered...
* Are there really creatures that produce fire to defend themselves
* How certain birds can navigate over thousands of miles of ocean and never get lost?
* How fireflies and glowworms can create pure light that generates no heat?
* How great whales can dive to the bottom of the ocean without the pressure causing them to implode?
* How some creatures can be cut in half and still regenerate themselves? Even grow a new head?
* What incredible flying insect became the inspiration for the design of the helicopter?
The Incredible Creatures That Defy Evolution Series enters the fascinating world of animals to reveal sophisticated and complex designs that shake the traditional foundations of evolutionary theory.
This series features Dr. Jobe Martin, who for the past 30 years has been exploring evolution vs. creation. His findings have been fascinating students around the world as he lectures on these remarkable animal designs that cannot be explained by traditional evolution. Our audiences are enjoying this series immensely!
December 13, 2022
"Incredible Creatures that Defy Evolution" Volume 1
HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED...
Are there really creatures that produce fire to defend themselves?
How does a giraffe get a drink without causing lethal blood pressure to his brain?
How can geckos walk upside down, even on glass, and not fall?
Creatures and biological systems examined in this program: - Bombardier Beetle - Giraffe - Woodpecker - Australian Incubator Bird - The Chicken Egg - Platypus - Black & Yellow Garden Spider - Gecko & Chuckwalla Lizards - Human Eye & Ear Drum
This creation film classic was a great testament to God's infinite wisdom and power and fit well into the Christmas season.
November 4 and 11, 2022
Chapel Presentations at Pipe Creek Christian School
SABBSA president Scott Lane did separate creation presentations for the K-3 and 4th through high school students at Pipe Creek Christian School during their chapel periods on Friday's November 4 and 11. we thank the students who were great, the school staff who were greatly supportive and the principal who invited us to be a part of these kids education.
Friday November 4 - Dinosaurs in the Bible (Upper school students were with free copies of books from Genesis Apologetics)
Friday November 11 - Animals that defy Evolution (Upper school students got their pick of pamphlets answering
perplexing creation questions.)
Tuesday November 1, 2022
Young Earth Evidence
This striking presentation shows that there is far more scientific evidence for a relatively young Earth than for an exceedingly old one. These sets of evidence fit well into the creation theory and coincide with a biblical timescale, but they are devastating to evolution which requires massive amounts of time.
We also show a wealth of evidence that this world was completely transformed about 5000 years ago by a worldwide flood. It is amazing not only how much evidence there is to verify the biblical timeline, but how all of this is being kept from the public.
To avoid conflicts on election night, we moved our November meeting up a week.
October 11, 2022
Fossils, Physics, Genetics and Babel
This program showed the fallacy of the geologic column. It explored how fossils are made and how both of these sets of evidence support creationism. It is shown that creationism conforms to the first two laws of thermodynamics, while evolution violates them!
We saw a wealth of evidence for this planet Earth being a very specially designed place made just for us. It included evidence in genetics for the fixity of the kinds as described in Genesis chapters 1 and 2. Finally, we explored evidence for the reality of Babel from historical records and linguistics.
September 13, 2022
Darwin and Radiometric Dating
"Darwin and Radiometric Dating" presented background on Darwin's life and insights into the development of his theory. It then explained the several dating methods used by scientists to date rocks and fossils. Two products of this presentation are to understand where evolution theory came from, and how radiometric dating has easy to see weaknesses which call all dates derived from them into question.
What we discovered along the way is how Carbon-14 dating can be the biblical creationist's best friend and supports the biblical narrative.
September 4 and 11 at Una New Day Church in Pipe Creek, TX
Scott Lane spoke at Una New Day Church in Pipe Creek, TX on Sundays September 4 and 11 during their Sunday services.
Schedule of Topics
Sunday 9/4 at 11 am - "Dinosaurs and the Bible"
(free book on the subject to every family who attends)

Una New Day Church is located at 9729 TX-16, Pipe Creek, TX 78063
Wednesday evenings from July 6 to August 10, 2022 at 6:30 pm
Six presentations at Crestview Baptist Church,
8101 Eagle Crest Blvd., Windcrest, TX 78239
Scott Lane presented the six-part series of "What if God wrote the Bible?" in multimedia formats during Crestview's Evening Bible study hour each Wednesday from July 6 to August 10, 2022.
For the believer these presentations show that ours is not a blind faith, but one supported by evidence and sound reason. For the unbeliever, these presentations and the companion book show that the Bible is not passe', disproved and irrelevant to modern society as they have been told. This allows them to evaluate the gospel message of Christ from a new perspective. This event will give the audience a look at six sets of evidence showing that the Bible is the Word of God, and is presented by the author of the new book "What if God Wrote the Bible?
The schedule of presentations for this series is shown below -
July 6 - If the Bible is the original creation account, we would expect most origin stories of other cultures to reflect and borrow
elements from the original;
July 13 - Historical - We would expect geology, archaeology, and history to support the Bible;
July 20 - See GOD writing history in advance;
July 27 - See GOD protecting His words;
August 3 - Philosophical and logical coherence-The Bible should hang together as if written by one author with central themes running throughout; and
August 10 - We should find Prescience in the Bible. Evidence of scientific knowledge in the Bible thousands of years ahead of man's discoveries.
These presentations and the companion book take you along the journey to discover these pieces of evidence for the Bible being God's Word exist. This whole series is now on YouTube and linked at the bottom of our home page.
August 9, 2022
Introduction to Creation Theories
This presentation covered the full continuum of major western creation theories between evolution and creation. It included capsules on the compromise theories of scientific creationism, gap theory, day/age theory, intelligent design, progressive creationism, and theistic evolution as well as assorted framework hypothesis. It sets the stage for all further presentations in our Creation Series.
July 12, 2022
The UFO Conspiracy: Space Travelers or Demonic Deceivers?
Unidentified Flying Objects have been recorded in various forms since the creation of man: Crudely drawn on Stone Age murals...chiseled in Egyptian stones...noted in the journals of ancients like Alexander the Great...even described in the ship's log of Christopher Columbus.
This DVD gave us more than a stunning catalog of UFO photography, video, and eyewitness recordings. we heard startling and controversial scriptural evidence from noted scholars like Dave Hunt (The Archon Conspiracy) and I.D.E. Thomas (The Omega Conspiracy) which suggests it is not "little green men" visiting us, but rather visitors from another dimension in a spiritual realm such as demons. There was a noted mismatch between the time spent on showing UFO evidence, and the time spent on delving into what they really are.
Thursday, July 7 at 7 pm
"The Discovery of Genesis in Chinese"
At the July meeting of the Greater Houston Creation Association (GHCA) at Houston's First Baptist Church Reception Room 7:00 P.M.
Scott Lane presented "The Discovery of Genesis in Chinese", based on the book written by Reverend C. H. Kang and Dr. Ethel Nelson. We showed 118 examples of Chinese pictographs and "radicals" which give unmistakable evidence of the full knowledge of Genesis chapters 1 - 11 some 4500 years ago when the Chinese written language was invented.
This evidence shows how the development of this language fits well within the biblical history of the dispersion after Babel, and how the Chinese were once a monotheistic people who knew of the God of the Bible and had intimate and detailed knowledge of His word.
June 14, 2022
Our Nation's Biblical Foundation
Was our nation founded as a secular nation?
Or, was the U.S. founded on biblical principles?
Our June program, presented by SABBSA board member Terry Read, follows up well with last month's program on "How our Nation is losing it faith." The program this month shows how our nation started with a deep faith in the Bible and biblical principles. We saw seldom viewed founding documents and writings of our founding fathers which reflects the strong faith we started with in this country.
May 10, 2022
The De-Faithing of America: How did we get Here?
Do you recognize the society we live in today? Does it reflect the culture you were brought up in? Does it seem like everything changed overnight?
The De-Faithing of America traces two parallel themes in our history of how we came from being a country which in 1776 was based on faith in God, to one today where faith in God is being sterilized from our society. It details the court cases which led us from a nation where in 1925 public schools could only teach creation, to today where public schools can now only teach evolution. Along the way, we highlight the big events and subtle changes which slowly changed our society's course. It includes updates on current events issues. In this session, we examine the implications of continued indoctrination in evolutionary thought on our society and our youth.
FEAST Science Workshops 2021-2022

Answers to Life's Most asked Questions
The "Beemer Report" reveals that we are losing our youth to a lost and dying world at a startling rate. It also says that we begin losing them in middle school, not college. In response to this data, we are offering a program for churches entitled "Answers for Life."
This program attempts to answer the "Big Questions in Life" such as: Is there a God? Why is there pain and suffering? Why am I here? Why do bad things happen to good people? Is there any proof for the Noahic flood and Babel or are they both mythical stories? What happened to the dinosaurs in a Biblical view of history? How do we know that the Bible is God's word? Where did Cain's wife come from?; and Doesn't distant starlight prove the Universe is older than the Bible would suggest? These are just a few adult stumpers which our kids in middle school can start asking as their public school science curricula presents data to them. They are also questions which keep youth and adult lost people from coming to Christ!

"What if God Wrote the Bible?" at Harlandale United Methodist Church,
This multimedia presentation showed believers evidence that theirs is not a "blind faith", but one grounded in evidence and sound reason.
For the unbeliever, this presentation and its companion book show that the Bible is not passe', disproved and irrelevant to modern society as they have been told. This allows them to evaluate the gospel message of Christ from a new perspective. This event will give the audience a look at six sets of evidence showing that the Bible is the Word of God, and is presented by the author of the new book "What if God Wrote the Bible?, Scott Lane. We had a great evening with a very receptive audience at Harlandale Methodist and we thank them for their hospitality!
March 8, 2022
If God wrote the Bible, what kind of evidence would He leave?
1.If the Bible is the original creation account, we would expect most origin stories of other cultures to reflect and borrow
elements from the original;
2. Historical - We would expect geology, archaeology, and history to support the Bible;
3. See GOD writing history in advance;
4. See GOD protecting His words;
5. Philosophical and logical coherence-The Bible should hang together as if written by one author with central themes running throughout; and
6. We should find prescience in the Bible. Evidence of scientific knowledge in the Bible thousands of years ahead of man's discoveries.
This presentation and the companion book took us along the journey to discover these pieces of evidence of the Bible being God's Word exist. It thus demonstrated that ours is not a blind faith, but a faith based upon evidence and sound reason.
February 8, 2022
No, this is not a course on how to become more materialistic. Our culture will teach you that without trying. Nor is it a course on how materialistic our culture is since that is self-evident.
Engineer Terry Read is a sponsor and originator of our radio program "Believing the Bible." He talked about how the thesis that "all there is, is what we see" has affected the scientific and spiritual communities in our society. He showed how this "materialism is all there is" idea has penetrated our schools, our labs and our psyches to make us believe there is no God and nothing spiritual beyond what we can touch, see and hear.
January 11, 2022
SABBSA Authors Night
You may not know it, but SABBSA has two board members who have published books. We took the first meeting of the year to review these books produced by our own.
Engineer Terry Read is a sponsor and originator of our radio program "Believing the Bible." He will talk about his book "Why Should I Believe? Why Should You Believe?" This book explains Terry's mental trek going from his church's teaching that the Bible and science were separate belief systems which could not intersect. To a knowledge that the Bible's original texts were inerrant and that the Bible and science are perfectly compatible. This book is available on his website "Why Should You Believe?" and the Walmart website in hardcover, softcover and e-book.
Dr. Carl Williams has been somewhat prolific in his writing, authoring six books to date including "The Rock and the Sword" a Christian fiction novella. He also has authored a series of Christian fiction books called the "Adventures of John Moses Doe" available on Amazon in softcover and e-book. This Christian sci-fi series launches the career of a down and out orphan who is mysteriously transformed into a superhuman. Follow along while he begins to uncover who he really is and how being stronger and faster than everyone else on the planet isn't necessarily a gift.
Both authors shared a synopsis of their books that night.
We also had SABBSA membership renewals and board elections that night as we do each January. Our board was held intact along with our slate of officers.
December 14, 2021
The Transgender Agenda
Don't recognize the culture you live in today? You are not alone. One of those huge shifts in our society which seemingly happened overnight has been the acceptance of transgenderism. How are we to respond to this? December's meeting had some answers.
"The Transgender Agenda" is a video from Answers in Genesis with a scientific and compassionate response to an ideology that cannot be supported by science nor the Bible, namely transgenderism. The focus is to safeguard children from this ideology that suggests they can be any gender they choose. Mature theme content.
November 9, 2021
Biblical Authority vs. Church Authority
On All Hallows Eve, 1517, Martin Luther posted his 95 Thesis on the Wittenberg church door, questioning church teaching. What was the basis for Luther's challenge? The Bible. Was Luther right? Was the church right? How should we look at this today? Do we trust our church leaders who are the professionals? Do we trust them to interpret the Bible for us since they have studied this and know more than we do? Or do we check things out for ourselves? How does this come into play in the creation/evolution debate?
SABBSA Board Member Terry Read addressed these questions with his multimedia presentation at our monthly meeting in November.

The Waters in Genesis
Did you know that the Bible gives good evidence that the first element made by God was water, and that all that we see in
the universe was made out of water?
Richard Stepanek from the Alpha Omega Institute (AOI) was with us in October to not only talk about this, but give us much more on the creation.
Richard also revealed biblical insights about the waters below the sky and waters above the sky as described in scripture, as well as giving us a unique perspective on Genesis chapter 1 using a spectacular multimedia format and an in-depth analysis of Genesis chapter 1 as it relates to creation science.

Genesis: The Key to Reclaiming the Culture
Ken Ham's most popular talk on the relevance of Genesis. This presentation is a challenge to the church that explains why a belief in a literal Genesis is so important. A must for Christian leaders, youth leaders, homeschools, Sunday schools in any class at all. It is a vital message for today's church explaining why Genesis is the key to bringing reformation and a solution to reaching our culture with the gospel! Revolutionize your ministry! Recorded before a live, large audience!

Genesis Impact Movie
Do Natural History Museums Display the Truth about Origins?
There is another view. The Genesis Impact movie is a new feature film from Genesis Apologetics.
Movie Synopsis- Secular museum docent (Reggie McGuire) presents his best case for evolution at the natural history museum, but little does he know that Christina (Hannah Bradley) has a few questions at the end of his talk that turn the tables... Christina's questions dismantle evolution and her meek yet powerful presentation of the Bible's account of origins awaken many to the truth. The Genesis Impact film is ideal for Christians who want to learn how to dismantle the leading "evidences" for evolution that are displayed in natural history museums and understand how to view secular museums through a Biblical perspective.
Folks this is an impactful film and the best depiction of the paucity of evidence for human hominid development we have ever seen. View the trailer at http://genesisimpact.com/impact/ Also available on this site are twelve short training videos which can be used to inform you more deeply about the twelve icons of evolution refuted in this film.

The Secrets of the Dead Sea Scrolls
We got a look at one of the greatest archaeological discoveries of the 20th century, the Dead Sea Scrolls. This video included the more recent facts uncovered from investigation and restoration of the scrolls. We also learned how the scrolls gave us astounding verification of God protecting His Words over the centuries in a magical way!

Testing Evolution: Exposing Flaws
* Are humans and chimps only 1 to 2% different?
* Is the human genome 98% junk, as claimed?
* Is Mitochondrial Eve evidence for evolution?
* What are some recent discoveries regarding our chromosomes?
* What should be done about creation in public schools?
* Does the creation topic really matter?
Evolutionary thought has changed a great deal in the last few years. It was once thought that human DNA is primarily junk. For many years Mitochondrial Eve was presented as compelling evidence for evolution. In addition, the 1 to 2% difference between humans and chimps was declared as fact. However, recently these arguments have been completely reversed.
Dr. Kevin Anderson, PhD microbiology Kansas State University and scientist with the Creation Research Society revealed to us the rest of the story.

Universe Battles: Big Bang or Big Design?
The Cassini spacecraft was a complex exploratory craft. Its mission was to study Saturn and its rings and moons. One of its main discoveries was the observation of water spraying out of the icy moon Enceladus. How could this supposedly 4.6-billion- year-old moon still be geologically active?
Universe Battles provided us with numerous observable evidences like Enceladus that our Solar System is not billions of years old. This documentary included interviews with six scientists, as well as special guest Ken Ham. We found this to be a well-structured documentary covering a lot of material on the subject of our universe's origins.

Earth Battles: How Old is It? Volume I - The Grand Canyon?
Is Earth 4.6 Billion Years Old as establishment scientists claim?
Earth Battles: How Old Is It? reviews geologic evidence from the Grand Canyon and finds that the evidence is not ambiguous, but very clearly points to a Young Earth. The evidence also points overwhelmingly in favor of world-wide catastrophic processes and the worldwide flood, not the slow and gradual processes that long-age geologists claim.
This documentary from Evidence Press includes beautiful 3D animation videos while explaining the Biblical Flood Model for the formation of Earth's basement rock, and sedimentary fossil-filled layers. There was also evidence shown of the rate of helium leakage from zircons which supports an age of the Earth which is quite young.

DNA Battles: Were Adam and Eve Historical?
Modern genetics provides overwhelming empirical evidence supporting the Biblical notion that God created all of life. DNA Battles explores several lines of evidence which supports a 6,000 year old Earth and a 6-day biblical explanation for Creation.
Too often Christians accept some form of evolution as the means for our origins. With modern genetics, it is time to realize empirical science points to Biblical Creation.
The June, 2011 cover article in Christianity Today (CT) lays out several positions for the historicity of Adam and Eve. Francis Collins, director of the National Institutes of Health, started the Biologos Foundation. Biologos is leading the charge for the position that Adam and Eve, if they existed at all, were part of a collective of some 10,000 hominids.
The CT article states, "A Biologos paper by Venema and Falk declares it more flatly: The human population, they say, 'was definitely never as small as two...Our species diverged as a population. The data are absolutely clear on that.'"
But is the data as clear as they state?
What has recent research revealed about mitochondrial DNA?
Does recent research on nuclear DNA support evolutionary predictions?
We heard from 7 scientists and 2 theologians attest to the truth of the biblical timeline.

Global Warming - Special Report: Hidden facts revealed!
What is the truth about global warming? Are the ice caps melting? Will polar bears and penguins soon be found starving on small floating icebergs? Does the future survival of man hinge on an immediate reduction in carbon emissions?
This "politically incorrect" documentary is an exciting and important tool for all who face the rampant misinformation propagated by ecological alarmists. Global Warming addresses subjects that most others won't touch, including misinformation which is contained in Al Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth".
Global warming is real, but it is not primarily man-made. This biblically based and thoroughly balanced view of climate change reveals that global warming is not a black & white issue. Viewers will see why well-meaning Christians need to be extremely careful when advocating environmental policies.
Through on-location interviews with leading creationist scientists, climatologists, and other commentators the dangers and politics of global warming are revealed. Learn how you can be effective in caring for creation, without becoming an unwitting accomplice to the myths of global warming. This balanced approach to a very "hot" topic will equip you with the information necessary to honor the Creator ... without worshipping the creation.

Genesis: Paradise Lost
Capturing the Creation week with cutting-edge cinematography and biblical accuracy, GENESIS: Paradise Lost brings the first chapter of the Bible to life! Vivid CG animation and interviews with experts and PhD's ignite this powerful production to deliver an incredible, thought-provoking investigation of our origins. In the beginning...God!
This is one of the best produced biblical creation films out there. It had a successful theatrical release a couple of years ago. We thank Mission city Church for allowing us to meet in January with Faith Lutheran temporarily closed. Our people applauded this film for its visual effects and in-depth look into what Genesis 1 actually says.
As is our custom the first meeting of the year, we had board and officer elections and took up dues from members for the coming year.
