Robert Helfinstine Died, January 1, 2016
Helfinstine, Robert "Bob" Finley 88, died Friday, January 1, 2016. Bob began working as an engineer at the Minneapolis Honeywell Regulator Company in 1950 in its Aeronautical Division. When he retired in 1989 as a Principle System Engineer after 37 years with Honeywell, he had helped develop control systems for 18 different aircraft and obtained two patents. Bob was active in the Twin Cities Creation Science Association beginning in 1974. He was a pioneer in the Creation movement and a tireless researcher and author. He dove into issues that others had abandoned and found gems of truth. He co-wrote with Jerry Roth, Texas Tracks and Artifacts showing clearly that the "discredited" human and dinosaur tracks in the Paluxy River region of Texas were genuine. He also researched the topic of post-flood catastrophes and left an unpublished manuscript which is the main resource for the TCCSA talk on January 19, 2016 which will be given in honor of him.

Biologos: Behind the Facade
On April 18, 2015, Biologos held a seminar at Constance Evangelical Free Church in Andover Minnesota, co-sponsored by MacLaurin CSF, a Christian study center at the University of Minnesota, which recently merged with Christian Student Fellowship. The title was "Integration of Science and Faith" and the goal was stated like this: "What if, rather than emphasizing opposition, we sought to understand the common ground shared by science and faith, without compromising either the science or Scripture and the Christian faith?" Speakers were John Walton (Professor of Old Testament at Wheaton) and Keith B. Miller (Professor of Geology at Kansas State).

Finally Collins admitted that his original contention that junk DNA proved evolution was fallacious and to call it that is "hubris." So called "Junk" actually has cricial regulatory functions. But he has not so far called off the attack dogs of Biologos who continue to seek to deride, belittle and mock the teaching of special creation by Christians. Come on, Dr. Collins!

Can You Be A Point Person?
Many Christians shy away from the issue of creation vs evolution.
Why? Because they think creation is either not important or not credible.
Regular TCCSA attenders know that creation is actually far more credible than evolution and is much more important than most realize. Believing that God used evolution or took millions of years, makes Him either clumsy, cruel or indifferent and makes the Bible unreliable from the beginning.
But the issue is also not one of pure intellectual discussion. There are psychological and spiritual barriers to even considering the evidence.
To be a point person requires humility, prayer, love and persistence.

Bruce Malone writes, "After leaving Dow and launching into full time Christian ministry (almost 3 years ago), we have finally updated our web site to make all of our resources easily accessible and available AT ABSOLUTELY NO COST. Every video lecture, audio teaching, and most books are now available for instant download. In addition, there are links to other major creation resources, my up-to-date speaking schedule, and a much improved order/donation basket.
Take a few minutes to poke around the new Search for the Truth web site, add a link to your favorites menu, and forward a link to others you know. I think you'll use this site as an ongoing resource for equipping yourself and others with a foundational knowledge on the importance of creation."

What Does Global Warming Have To Do With Creation?
Like the Creation/Evolution issue:
* It is "science" by consensus
* Discussion is not allowed (dissenters want discussion)
* Key evidence is ignored
- there have been cycles of warming and cooling in the past
- Greenland was farmed by the Vikings long before industrialization
- Carbon dioxide follows warming as the oceans warm and release it
* Dissenters are vilified
* It assumes that man can save the earth
* It leaves out God's plan
* It accepts billions of years of earth history
* And longs for dramatic population reduction.
Does it strike anybody as strange that carbon dioxide -- which is present at a level of about 5% in the air we all exhale and is absolutely necessary for the growth of green plants on which all animal life on earth ultimately depends for food -- is designated as a pollutant?
Will we need to purchase "carbon credits" to keep breathing? Since water is an even more powerful "greenhouse gas" will that be next? Have we entered "Wonderland" and not noticed?
Hey, I just thought of a way to cut Health Care costs!
Interesting thought: "Climategate" (the revelation of incriminating e-mails detailing underhanded suppression of dissent) has not provoked a media feeding frenzy like Watergate did.

But what about those who tell kids, "You are an accidental collection of molecules. You not only have no intrinsic value or significance but when you die, it is all over. Also, you are not even the pinnacle of evolution but part of an accidental species that will probably be replaced by cockroaches. We are not even sure about free will... but we are pretty sure you are destroying the earth. And by the way, there are too many of you. Now hurry along, children, your next class is on Self Esteem."

(shortly before his untimely death)
Updated and Enlarged
"Texas Tracks and Artifacts"
Reduced Price $12.00
Contact Bob via webmaster:
After several years of work, Texas Tracks is back in print with updated information on track finds in Texas and from other locations. A new section has also been added to the book with the title "Supporting. Evidences". Evidence for coexistence of men and dinosaurs includes artifacts, artworks and historical records.
Additional testing on the hammer artifact has verified it to be an ancient tool, not a recently lost miner's hammer. Test results are included.
APPENDIX 1, Radiocarbon Dating as it Relates to Coexistence of Men and Dinosaurs is another addition to the book.
There are 48 numbered black-and-white illustrations and 70 color illustrations in a slightly larger format of 135 pages that makes for easier reading.
TCCSA has provided consultation for this Creation-Science Environmental Learning Center near Henning, Minnesota. This will be the first Bible based Environmental Learning Center in the World and a significant step forward for science. This is where future leaders of the church as well as science will receive training.

Dancing with the Devil, Juggling the Facts
Bill Nye, "the science guy," has enhanced his star status by appearing on "Dancing with the Stars." He appears to be light on his feet although recent statements indicate that he is intellectually lead-footed.
His diatribe against creation began with the assertion that America is at the forefront of science and technology because of freedom of thought. He then turned right around and complained that too many people do not think as he does. I am not privy to the state of Mr. Nye's soul, which is real and precious whether or not he thinks he has one. But I do fear for his eternal destiny since such elementary errors of logic for a man of intelligence and learning indicate that he is clearly suppressing the truth.
Ross Olson engaged in a little on line debate with National geographic blogger, Greg Laden, on Fox News Local affiliate chanel 9 Twin Cities on September 24, 2013.
God Does Not Believe In Atheists!
Really! God does not believe in atheists. Sure, He knows there are those who claim there is no God. But first of all, He calls them fools. (Psalm 14:1)
Then He says that deep down inside, they actually know He is there. They did not get to where they are by way of intellectually honest inquiry but are rather practicing suppression of the truth. And because of this, they are not only without excuse but objects of His extreme anger. (Romans 1:18-21
Further, Scripture predicts that eventually every knee will bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (Philippians 2:9-11
Some will bow in grateful praise for forgiveness and a future eternity with Him. (Revelation 21:1-7
Some will bow with gritted teeth, in dread and remorse for wasted life and opportunities, recognizing that they have been willing victims of the master deceiver and will share his fate. (Revelation 20:10-15

There are all sorts of different reasons for believing in God, and here I will mention only one. It is this. Supposing there was no intelligence behind the universe, no creative mind. In that case nobody designed my brain for the purpose of thinking. It is merely that when the atoms inside my skull happen for physical or chemical reasons to arrange themselves in a certain way, this gives me as a by-product, the sensation I call thought. But if so, how can I trust my own thinking to be true? It is like upsetting a milk-jug and hoping that the way the splash arranges itself will give you a map of London. But if I cannot trust my own thinking, of course I cannot trust the arguments leading to atheism and therefore the reason to be an atheist, or anything else. Unless I believe in God, I cannot believe in thought or anything else: so I can never use thought to disbelieve in God.
C. S. Lewis
