Next Regular Meeting: Tuesday, April 11, 2023, at 7 pm
Coming to SABBSA in April
Discovery and Design
We have 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 will look 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!
Please join us in April for creation science and biblical apologetics teaching you will find nowhere else in Bexar County.
"Answers for Life" Creation Series Seminar
This 6-week seminar is targeted especially at 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 will meet every Sunday starting February 19 and through the month of March at Cibolo Valley Baptist Church located at 5500 FM 1103, Schertz, TX 78108 at 3:30 pm. Awanas run at the same time as this seminar at the church, so you can bring the younger kids along with a program for them as well and nursery care will be provided if we have prior notification. The public is invited to this free seminar.
The schedule for the seminar is as follows:
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

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!

"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)

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
"The Rocks Cry Out" series
Our thanks to FEAST for sponsoring us for the 18th consecutive year in our providing their FEAST Science Workshops. Listed below are the programs we shared with the home school community of San Antonio in 2021-2022.

April 12, 2022 at 7 pm
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.
October 12, 2021
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.
September 14, 2021
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!
If you missed it this video can be viewed by going to https://answersingenesis.org/media/video/creation/key-to-reclaiming/
Special Programs in August at Coker United Methodist Church
SABBSA provided four special presentations on the topics of the Worldwide Flood, C14 and Radiometric Dating, the Alien Demonic Delusion and Scott Lane - Genetics and the Bible the first four Sundays in August at Coker United Methodist Church (231 E North Loop Rd, San Antonio, TX 78216).
Each program occurred during Coker's regular Sunday School hour in their gym at 9:30 am. The programs were well received by the church congregation, and we provided access to a lot of materials at these presentations.

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 the 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!
June 8, 2021
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.
April 13, 2021
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.
March 9, 2021
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.

Which Gospel? How Long age Stories undermine the Gospel
In this new DVD, Dr. Martin Williams presents six in-depth, biblical and theological arguments for the incompatibility of evolutionary long ages and the Gospel.
Dr Williams explains step by step how a deep-time view of our origins is incompatible with the New Testament's understanding of Jesus' life, death and resurrection.
He covers topics like:
The science is not scary! (14 min)
Why all the fuss about long ages? (12 min)
How 'good' is creation? (6min)
Did animals die in the Garden of Eden? (11 min)
Reaching the west (18 min)
What does the resurrection tell us about origins? (7 min)

The Red Sea Miracle (part II)
This theatrical documentary was to have been released to theaters in May, but COVID prevented that.
THE RED SEA MIRACLE 2 continued to investigate big questions about biblical miracles. How could thousands of feet of water be parted at the Red Sea? Or was the sea merely parted by the act of wind in nature, through a shallow Egyptian lake?
The Patterns in Evidence crew led by filmmaker Timothy Mahoney investigates these locations to see if any have a pattern of evidence matching the Bible. People of faith will be inspired, and skeptics will have much to think about as Mahoney reveals two decades of documentary research including if divers found the remains of Pharaoh's army on the seafloor. This cinematic journey leads him to inquire... "Do miracles still happen today?"

The Red Sea Miracle (part I)
Tim Mahoney investigates one of the greatest miracles of the Bible. Did a mighty sea split? What secrets will be revealed?
After leaving Egypt, the Bible describes the Israelites crossing a deep sea that was miraculously split with walls of water on their right and left. When the Egyptians and their chariot force pursued, the water came crashing back down to destroy the entire army. Are miracles of this kind even possible?
Skeptics contend that no evidence has ever been found for huge numbers of people crossing the wilderness or a mighty sea. Does the lack of evidence at the traditional sites mean the events didn't happen, or might we have been looking in wrong places all along?
We joined Timothy Mahoney in the next chapter of the series as he retraced the steps of Moses and the Israelites, looking for answers in Patterns of Evidence: The Red Sea Miracle Part 1.
This video explored ideas from all sides of the debate as we journeyed back to the lands of the Bible in search of answers to one of the Bible's biggest mysteries; where is the lost sea of the Exodus, and what really happened there?
This intricate video was well received by our audience and we have scheduled to show part II of this series at our November meeting.

Quick Answers to Tough Questions (Bryan Osborn, AiG)
Today the faith of Christians is being undermined daily. A relentless stream of secular attacks from supposedly solid science has put many Christians on the defensive.
Whether the argument is about evolution, history, or theology, every believer must be able to provide an "answer for the hope that is within them". But you don't have to be an expert to respond effectively when confronted about your faith. Quick Answers to Tough Questions gives you quick and concise answers to the tough questions that are often posed to believers regarding:
Creation and evolution
Age of the earth and Noah's Ark
Death and suffering
Origin of life and missing links.
Biblical history and a biblical worldview help us to understand the past, present, and future. Too many believers have fallen victim to those who say that the Bible's history is false or that science has disproved it. Equip yourself to address the skeptical questions and comments of believers and unbelievers alike and successfully stand strong in your defense of the inerrancy and truth of God's Word.

Replacing Darwin (Dr. Nathaniel Jeanson)
On June 9th we were excited to have our first "face to facemask" meeting in three months! Our topic and video was "Replacing Darwin", a concept developed by Dr. Nathaniel Jeanson as a worldview and counter concept to the prevailing "primary axiom" of Darwinian Evolution.
We cancelled out April and May meetings due to the Pandemic
Due to Coronavirus concerns, and in line with state and local stay at home orders and Faith Lutheran Church's compliance with these orders, we cancelled both our April and May SABBSA meetings for safety reasons.

Creation Science Evidence Overview
Every area of science has evidence showing that life did not happen by accident. When seen by students, their faith in God skyrockets!
Our friends at "Search for the Truth Ministries" are now in third year of visiting schools in Fiji, Vanuatu and the Philippines. They have had the extraordinary opportunity to speak to hundreds of thousands of students on these islands and give each student a copy of a creation science devotional much like the ones we sell, which all come from "Search for the Truth Ministries."
After each presentation and book distribution, they leave a DVD with the school for use in assemblies or science classes giving a creation science evidence overview.
On Tuesday, March 10 we viewed the video they are leaving with each school on these South Pacific Islands giving all of us a fine overview of creation science, but also a vision for the impact this ministry is having in the South Pacific. It was very well received by our membership.

Human Design: Divine Engineering
Evolutionists say everything evolved through random mutations and any appearance of design in nature is just illusion, but how does that stack up to reality?
Just consider the human hand. Nothing else comes close to its fluid precision and control. Our hands enable every level of human activity, from the work of artists, surgeons, concert pianists, professional baseball pitchers, to a mother brushing her daughter's hair. Such great engineering could only result from great design.
Dr. Randy Guliuzza, a professional engineer and medical doctor, explored the wonders of the human hand, demonstrating the precise interactions of our nervous systems and muscles that provide its powerful grasp, precision grip, and exquisitely controlled finger movements. Dr. Guliuzza unwrapped for us the astounding design features that testify to the engineering genius of our Creator, the Lord Jesus Christ.
Dr. Guliuzza is ICR's National Representative and a former board member with SABBSA. His presentations have become a favorite with some of our newer members and they requested this very special program.
