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 .


TCCSA

October 21, 2014
Alan K. Walker
of Logos Research Associates
"Genetic Entropy"

University of Northwestern St Paul, 3003 North Snelling, Roseville, Minnesota
Nazareth Chapel (Room change!)

Evolution predicts that over time, because of mutations and natural selection, the best of the mutations will be preserved and the species improved in its overall fitness. Real life experience and experimental evidence, however, reveal a disturbing downhill trend. Mildly harmful mutations are not negatively selected and accumulate, producing an overall decreased fitness. This is true even though severely harmful mutations are eliminated by decreasing the organism's ability to live and reproduce. And even if there were occasional favorable mutations (which is highly debatable) each species is heading inextricably towards extinction.

Science and Creation Seminar
Guest speakers

Julie Von Vett
David Mikkelson
Al Heitkamp

Those who attend will learn the basics of evolution and creation and the differences and consequences of these worldviews. They will also learn fascinating scientific evidences for creation and the flood.


Bell Museum
Bell Museum Special Lecture: Viewing the Birth of the Universe from the Bottom of the World
Come to hear and evaluate the standard view.
Thursday, October 30, 7 p.m., presented with the Minnesota Institute for Astrophysics
Bell Museum Auditorium, free and open to the public

At one time the origin and fate of the Universe in which we find ourselves was the subject of speculation by mystics and philosophers. Now it is a hard, data driven science -- although some mysteries remain!

Professor Clem Pryke will guide you through the current state of knowledge, from the discovery of cosmic expansion to dark matter and dark energy. Then journey back in cosmic time to the first instant of the Big Bang and learn about the recent evidence for gravitational waves coming from the BICEP2 radio telescope located at the South Pole. Pryk's lecture will be followed by a Q&A session, plus free viewing of Eyes on the Universe in the West Gallery.

Bruce Malone
of Search for the Truth
"Brilliant: Mankind Made in the Image of God"

University of Northwestern St Paul, 3003 North Snelling, Roseville, Minnesota
Totino Fine Arts Center, Room F2128 (Old F116)

Early man is routinely portrayed as a knuckle-dragging, wife-beating, dimwitted ignoramus because it is assumed that he evolved from some sort of ape-like ancestor. Nothing could be farther from the actual truth. Every culture of the world displays the incredible intelligence of mankind from its very foundation. This talk explains how historical mysteries of the past confirm key biblical events such as the creation of mankind, the fall of creation, the worldwide flood, and the dispersion from Babel.

* A 12-foot bronze sculpture from ancient China showing key events from the garden of Eden
* An ancient map showing the Antarctic coastline BEFORE it was covered by ice over a mile deep
* Pyramids from ancient cultures around the world, many built with unbelievable precision
* Complex chemical glues developed by Neanderthals, mechanical bronze computational devices constructed by Greeks, brain surgery by the Incas, and working batteries by the Babylonians.

A visual and intellectual journey through time, this talk reveals how these and many more examples from ancient human cultures confirm mankind's incredible intelligence from the moment of creation. The emphasis of the lecture is helping Christians explain to others how all human cultures fit into a literal 6000 year biblical timeline. Also available will be a just-released, coffee-table quality hardcover book (Brilliant: Made in the Image of God) tying world history to biblical truth. This book brings the Bible alive because it ties real Earth history to biblical events and is a perfect gift for skeptical friends and family.
