TCCSA may not necessarily endorse all material presented at meetings announced on this page, but feels that they would be of interest to creationists.

Calendar: It's more than just TCCSA
We hope to make this web calendar as comprehensive as possible for creation-related events taking place within about one hundred and fifty miles of the Twin Cities. If you have information on an event you would like posted, please send to info{at}tccsa.tc .

St Paul's Lutheran Church and School

Saturday, October 17, 2015, 9:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Creation Seminar - Lunch Provided
Julie Von Vett "Where did the Races come from?"

Why are you the color you are? Did we all come from Adam and Eve? How does the tower of Babel fit with the color of your skin? Have they found the missing links from ape to man?"

David Mikkelson "Something Has Survived"

There is something out there... Strange sightings, ancient stories, amazing artifacts, and fantastic fossils all point to these creatures. What could they be? Where did they come from?
Join Paleontologist David Mikkelson as we delve into deep jungles, travel across hot deserts, search ancient manuscripts, and explore these mysterious creatures. We’ll unwrap some of the best kept secrets of our time... Something IS alive and well!

Elizabeth J. Haas "Do you know your Bible? Revealing why God's Word is to be Believed."

In this day and age, we live in a very skeptical society. Everyone wants to know the reason behind everything, searching for the definition of truth. As Christians, living in this age, are we going to stand out and defend the hope within us (1 Peter 3:15) or are we going to stand in the shadows? I am going to speak on the great importance we, as followers of Christ, have to defend our faith. I will be focusing on how to tell a Bible skeptic that God's Word is true, as well as, how we know God created the earth and the entirety of creation in six literal, twenty-four hour days. I will include many points using the biblical Hebrew language, which I have studied in depth. I pray the Lord will use my words to bless, encourage and challenge you.

Noah's Ark How Did Noah Build the Ark?

With Noah's pre-Flood intelligence, his focus on the purpose God assigned for his life, and communication with the Creator Himself, he was able to complete the construction of the Ark from the basic instructions we find in Scripture. There is evidence that ships approaching the size of the Ark have in fact existed in ancient times. The ancient Greeks built a ship named Syracusia (or Alexandris) that carried around 4,000 tons of cargo. The pre-modern Chinese also built giant wooden ships. The 15th-century sea-going junks of the ambassador Cheng Ho approached the size of the Ark (John Woodmorappe, "Noah's Ark Feasibility Study," Dallas, TX: Institute for Creation Research, p. 50).

"Engineered Adaptability:

Design analysis shows how creatures self-adjust to stress and drive themselves through space-time"
Bacterial Motor> Randy Guliuzza

Some see organisms as designed part by a designer and part by Nature. Science confirms that all creature function flows through systems having patterns consistent with full design-especially systems controlling organism-environment associations. Using organism-focused, design-based explanations brings scientific clarity and eliminates the mysticism inherent with "selection"-based notions. Properly identify the true cause of organism's dramatic capacity to adapt -- better yet, "self-adjust" -- to different environments and you are on your way to the most powerful argument against death and survival driven naturalistic evolution.

Dr. Randy Guliuzza is the Institute for Creation Research's National Representative. He specializes in assisting laymen and technical people see scientific data from the creation science perspective. His primary area of research deals with the innate systems of organisms which enable them to self-adjust to different environments in order to "fill the earth." Dr. Guliuzza has a B.S. in Engineering from the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology, a B.A. in theology from Moody Bible Institute, the M.D. from the University of Minnesota, and the Masters in Public Health from Harvard University. Dr. Guliuzza served nine years in the Navy Civil Engineer Corps and is a registered professional engineer. He is Board Certified in Aerospace Medicine and was a physician in the U.S. Air Force until retiring in 2008.

"Did the Sun Really Stand Still?"

Sun Stood Still
We who read and believe the Bible when it states that the sun stood still, rarely think about the full implications. Skeptics dismiss it all as myth. But there is both archeologic and geologic evidence for many post flood catastrophes that fit with the Biblical record of miraculous changes in the usual order of nature.

"Genetic evidence of evolution: One step forward, two steps back"

Genetic at Work
According to evolution, new genes arise from random mutations and natural selection. Genetic sequencing of organisms over time was expected to allow direct observations of new gene formation. We will review several experiments with well-documented genetic changes. These experiments clearly show: 1) a preference for loss of gene function as a means to overcome a selective pressure, 2) simple point mutations or rearrangements of existing genetic structures, not creation of new genes, 3) the extreme rarity of beneficial mutations, and 4) individual beneficial mutations tend to cancel each other when combined.

"Patterns of Evidence -- Exodus"

ExodusPatterns of Evidence
For more than 50 years, the vast majority of the world's most prominent archaeologists and historians have proclaimed that there is no hard evidence to support the Exodus story found in the Bible. In fact, they say that the archaeological record is completely opposed to the Bible's account. This view of extreme skepticism has spread from academia to the world. The case against the Exodus appears to be so strong that even some religious leaders are now labeling this ancient account as historical fiction.

Filmmaker Timothy Mahoney begins with the question, "Is the Bible just a myth, or did the archaeologists get it wrong?" He decides to tackle this issue with a deliberate scientific approach. After examining the details in the biblical text, he journeys across the globe to search for patterns of evidence firsthand. The result is the most in-depth archaeological investigation into the Exodus from Egypt ever captured on film. The startling finds may change traditional views of how the Bible relates to ancient history.

Locations, Directions and Maps

TCCSA Meetings are held on the third Tuesday of each month (except August and December) at 7:30 to about 9:00 pm. They are now usually at Totino Fine Arts Center, in the room to the right side of the large auditorium (Room F2128 (Old F116) University of Northwestern - St. Paul (formerly Northwestern College), 3003 North Snelling, Roseville Minnesota. Other locations would be announced and posted, such as the Chapel in Nazareth Hall (the building just between the Totino Center and the lake).

Because the rooms sometimes change,
you may want to check the website more than once.
