"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.

"Lise Meitner: The Woman Who Unleashed the Power of the Atom"

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



Lise Meitner, with her nephew Otto Frisch who was also a physicist, discovered and wrote the formula for unleashing the power of atomic energy. (No it was not Albert Einstein)
In 1891 in Austria, it had been illegal for a woman to go to high school or on to college. When laws were passed so she could attend a college, she was homeschooled by her parents and tutors for two years in order to pass the college entrance exams.

In 1905 at age 24 she became the second woman in Europe to receive a doctorate in Physics. The other woman was Madam Curie who had earned her Physics doctorate in 1903 at the University of Paris.

Hitler was killing all Jews where she lived in Germany. Her words while fleeing Germany for her life: "I got so frightened, my heart almost stopped beating. I knew that the Nazis had declared open season on Jews, that the hunt was on. For ten minutes I sat there and waited, [While Nazi solders checked her passport] minutes that seemed like so many hours."

Questions we will answer:

Now did she escape the Nazi killing machine?
What hardships did she experience to follow her dream?
Why did Otto Hahn, her colleague, claim he discovered the formula?
Why was she not recognized for her incredible discovery for 40 years?
Why did she become a Christian?

"The Genetics
of Adam and Eve"


Dr. Georgia Purdom

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


One of the biggest debates in evangelical Christianity today is whether or not Adam and Eve were real people. Sadly many Christian theologians and scientists believe that genetics has disproven the existence of an original couple specially created by God. In addition to accommodate a non-literal Adam and Eve, many have begun to redefine sin and salvation. In this presentation we will explore both the theological importance of Adam and Eve to the gospel and how the science of genetics supports and is consistent with the fact that all humans have descended from an original couple created by God as described in Genesis.

Science in the Bible"

Julie von Vett

The Bible

The Bible is not a science book but it does contain amazingly accurate scientific information. Many of our modern "discoveries" were written in the Bible thousands of years ago. God tells us about such things as weather, the stars, oceans, diseases and prevention. Come and hear some of what God revealed to us thousands of years before science "proved" it.

"Teaching Children the Biblical View of Dinosaurs"

Shyla Allard

Biblical View of dinosaurs

Dinosaurs have captured the minds and imaginations of our children at every turn whether it be books, science classes, museums, cartoons or Hollywood movies. Unfortunately, the overwhelmingly prominent view of these amazing creatures is the secular humanist and evolutionary view which dates them as living millions of years ago prior to humans; thereby undermining a biblical worldview. In this talk, you will learn to teach children the biblical view of dinosaurs as well as help them spot the lies that are so often promoted about them.

"What Evolution Can and Cannot Do"

Rob Stadler


University of Northwestern St Paul, 3003 North Snelling, Roseville Minnesota
Nazareth Chapel N2250


In the debate between creation and evolution, both sides employ scientific methods to defend their position, hoping that science will eventually prove them right. However, much of this debate centers on ancient evidence and the application of scientific methods to explain the distant past is inherently tainted by bias and assumptions.

In contrast, the epic battle for survival between humans and malaria and the modern struggle between malaria and antibiotics provide recent experimental evidence of exactly what evolution (i.e., genetic mutations and natural selection) has and has not accomplished. In many cases, the specific genetic changes that confer advantages to either humans or malaria in this battle have been determined. This objective evidence provides insight to the severe limitations of evolution, especially when compared to the incredible complexity of self-assembling biological systems.

They help make 60-80 percent of the Earth's oxygen

They clean the ocean of CO2, nitrates and phosphates.

When they die, their bodies make sand like layers on the ocean floor.

These layers are mined to make industrial cleaners, tooth paste, paints explosives and over 100 other products.

The layers have been used to show that the earth is millions of years old, however, when we take a time formula and input a variable, the time frame fits with a Biblical Chronology.

Russ will be using his famous colorful Power Point slides to illustrate the story of God's Tiniest Engineers.

Meeting held at University of Northwestern - St. Paul,

A compilation of commonly known scientific evidence supporting creation -- evidence in the fields of geology, biology, medicine, paleontology, chemistry, biochemistry, physics, astrophysics, and astronomy, and specific research by esteemed scientists, and from my own personal experience as a consulting geologist and biologist. This talk and website were completed after having grown weary of false evolutionary doctrine promoted by public television, national networks and other media, and taught in our public schools. Although "evolutionary theory" does not meet the universally accepted definition of 'theory' or 'hypothesis' or, for that matter, the universally accepted definition of "science", students continue to be taught evolution as "proven fact" -- and later in life, they perpetuate this doctrine as teachers, journalists, and parents without questionn.

The Universal Force:
Hydrogen
Derived From a More Perfect Union of the Axiomatic and Empirical Scientific Methods


Following the guidelines of the famous Christian and scientist Isaac Newton, an improved version of electrodynamics has been derived which is able to replace Maxwell's Electrodynamics, Einstein's Special and General Relativity Theories and the quantum theory of elementary particles, atoms, and molecules. From this electrodynamics improved versions of the force of gravity and inertia are derived that can explain many new phenomena. This improved version of electrodynamics is then conjectured to be the universal force. This force has a unique symmetry. Evidence is given via diagrams and pictures that this symmetry is present in all elementary particles, atoms, nuclei, molecules, crystals, plant flowers, plant leaves, plant seed pods, orbits of planets and moons in our solar system, structure of the Milky Way Galaxy, and the structure of the universe as a whole. Dr. Lucas's book on this subject will be available for sale at the meeting.

Fingerprints of the Creator:

the Source of All Beauty

Arguments from the Bible as illustrated in famous Christian art will be presented that God interacts with His universe via electrodynamic means in both the Old and New Testaments in a way that is compatible with a universal electrodynamic force. The Bible is used to show that God has a unique symmetry that is identical to the symmetry of the universal force. This symmetry is also displayed in the Old Testament Tabernacle and Temple and the New Testament Church. It is displayed in the Hebrew language of the Old Testament and the Greek Language of the New Testament. According to Romans 1:20 "For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities - his eternal power and divine nature - have been clearly seen, being understood from what he has made". This symmetry is God's fingerprint as creator. According to the dictionary this symmetry is also the source of all beauty in nature. This insight enables Christians and Jews to understand the mystical beauty of God's covenants and his plan of salvation.

Remember the meteorite that exploded in a spectacular fireball over Russia a month ago? Well, the IRM's current visitor is Natalia Bazaeva, from Moscow State University, who is in charge of measuring the magnetic properties of all the meteorite fragments that were recovered near Chelyabinsk.For those of you in the know, the Chelyabinsk meteorite is an LL5 ordinary chondrite with an S4 shock stage and a W0 weathering grade (e.g., pristine). It's a stony meteorite with less than 10% metal and relatively large (about 1 mm) olivine and orthopyroxene-rich chondrules. All of us at the IRM are excited to learn more about this meteorite in an informal talk that touches on the origin, composition, and trajectory of the meteorite, and that places Natalia's IRM research into a broader meteoritics context. We welcome anyone with an interest in meteorites to attend!

"Mysteries Written in Rock"

Meeting held at Northwestern College,
3003 North Snelling, Roseville Minnesota
Room Change
Nazareth Hall Chapel


It was the denial of a real, world-restructuring, Biblical-scale, global flood - and the addition of enormous periods of time to the geological record of our planet - which directly led to the widespread acceptance of Darwinian evolution. Yet in recent years geologists are acknowledging that many, if not most, of the sedimentary layers of rock upon the Earth must have formed quite rapidly and catastrophically. So where is all the time needed for evolution to have occurred? Supposedly between the layers of sediment. Bruce uses visual images, demonstrations, and video clips to explain in easy to understand, non-technical terms the mechanisms which formed the rock layers during the flood and how we can know that there is no "missing time" between the rock layers.

"The Age of the Universe"Stretched Heavens

A straightforward reading of Scripture clearly teaches six-day creation with an age of thousands of years.Does science teach billions of years? Don't billions of light-years require billions of years to travel?What is light anyway? How did conventional science arrive at the Big Bang? What assumptions were made along the way? What would happen if we rethought some fundamental notions in physics? Do Creationists offer alternatives? Do they agree with each other? Can the Genesis account of creation actually offer insight into fundamental physics? This presentation delves into all of these questions and offers real answers to some very tough questions. It will confirm that Scripture is trustworthy, God is in control, and His creation is even more awesome than we've ever imagined.

Greg Volk is president and proceedings editor for the Natural Philosophy Alliance (NPA), an organization dedicated to free and unbiased inquiry in fundamental questions of science. He is also co-founder and editor of the World Science Database, a web-based resource cataloging the work of several thousand independent scientists worldwide.

NPA
Video Conference: The Philosophy of Science vs. Truth
The meeting took place February 9, 2013.
This video conference used Fuzemeeting. Conference can be replayed by clicking HERE.


The ancient Greek philosophers defined the goal of natural philosophy as the quest for truth. They had some success in mathematics especially geometry. Isaac Newton expanded natural philosophy to include the performing of experiments to discover empirically the postulates and terms of science in precise mathematical form. Newtons great success in mechanics and gravity was tempered by his failure to discover the true nature of mass, the origin of the forces of gravity and inertia, and the means by which these forces were delivered. Later generations of natural philosophers reacting to the failures of Newtons empirical approach, adopted the existential philosophy based on idealizations and approximations, because they felt that truth was unattainable. Under this philosophy the pillars of modern science, i.e. Maxwells electrodynamics, quantum mechanics, and relativity theory were developed. In the mid twentieth century some nat ural philosophers returned to the search for truth by introducing structural philosophy and removing idealizations and approximations from science. Most scientists in the hard sciences of physics, astronomy, geology, chemistry, and biology refused to take up the search for truth again and instead introduced the post-modern philosophy which was a continuation of existential philosophy in which each field of science now has experts that define the criteria for truth and meaning separately in each field of science. The criterion of falsifiability is used as the criterion for distinguishing between true science and pseudoscience. The veracity of assumptions, postulates and terms that form the logical basis of theories is no longer as important as the agreement of the predictions of theories with empirical data. A comparison of the results of the existential/post-modern and structural philosophies is presented for electrodynamics. The resulting predictions are identical for const ant velocity phenomena. How is the true theory to be determined? How is truth to be determined?

Charles LucasDr. Charles Lucas earned his doctorate in Intermediate Energy Physics from The College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia in 1972 and then performed post-graduate research on pions at Catholic University in Washington, DC. He has derived a universal electro-dynamic force law that describes physical phenomena on all size scales throughout the universe including what he terms "the pulse of life," on the molecular scale and a new paradigm for medicine. Using the universal force law he has refined the ring model to describe the complete set of elementary particles, their decay schemes, reactions, and excited states by introducing the classical concept of stable elementary particles being composed of primary, secondary and tertiary level three dimensional closed strings that reflect the chiral symmetry of the universal force. This classical model conserves energy, total number of charge strings, and unique angular momentum configurations of the primary strings i n all decays and reactions.

"How to Navigate Secular Museums Through a Biblical Creationist Lens"

Field Museum

This month's meeting features practical advice on how to navigate a secular museum with a Biblical creationist worldview. In doing this, Shyla Allard will use a visual tour of the Chicago Field Museum of Natural History and its "Evolving Planet" exhibit as an example. It is here she has led guided tours for students, helping them to look critically at the "evidence," and understand what is scientific fact and what is scientific "opinion" based on evolutionary assumptions. She will even share a handbook she has written for a walk through the museum exhibit. You will leave this meeting better equipped to experience secular museums through the lens of the Bible.

Biologos claims to be a organization dedicated to the integration of scientific thought with biblical teaching. Unfortunately, this organization equates science with evolution and actively promotes a theistic evolutionary position in the guise of biblical creation. To achieve this, they draw several erroneous conclusions about genetics and about how mutations effect organisms. They further conclude that genetic evidence proves Adam and Eve are not historical figures, and God did not create unique 'Kinds.' However, rather than supporting the conclusions of Biologos, genetic mechanisms provide a very powerful support for a creation model, including the creation of unique "kinds" and the historical existence of Adam and Eve.

"What is the Shelf Life of a Dinosaur Bone?"
Dr. Kevin Anderson of
Creation Research Society


What is the Shelf-Life of a Dinosaur Bone? The Creation Research Society has initiated a research program to investigate the presence of tissue in dinosaur fossils. Specifically, we have obtained fossilized vertebrae, ribs, and a nearly complete supraorbital horn from Triceratops. Analysis of this material has revealed visible microstructures that appear to be lamellar bone osteocytes. Our data is consistent with previous reports of intact cells evident in compact bone tissue that has not yet fossilized. Evidence of such soft tissue still remaining in dinosaur fossils dated at 65 - 80 million years directly challenges standard geological time scales. Instead, these specimens are fully consistent with a recent deposition.

Gecko Foot Many of today's useful inventions came from copying what God designed in His Creation. For instance, Velcro is now in nearly every household around the world. The idea for it came from copying the sticking power of a cocklebur in the fur of the inventor's dog. Today, Spiderman gloves are patterned after the tremendously intricate design of the foot of a Gecko lizard. Several amazing creatures are explored in this session entitled Bio-inspiration along with the inventions they have fostered. The question is then asked, "Could blind chance produce this grand design?"

"Charles Babbage: The Inventor of the Calculating Machine"

The Father and Inventor of the Calculating Machine. Charles Babbage: Genius, Inventor extraordinaire, entrepreneur, reformer, mathematician, philosopher, political economist, Christian and defender of the Faith.
Russ McGlenn

Meeting held at Northwestern College, 3003 North Snelling, Roseville Minnesota
Totino Fine Arts Center, Room F2128 (Old F116)


Analytical Engine. This was the first fully-automatic calculating machine. British computing pioneer Charles Babbage (1791-1871) first conceived the idea of an advanced calculating machine to calculate and print mathematical tables in 1812. He wrote the Bridgewater Treatises of 1837 in defense of the Gospel. He had a host of other inventions that will be covered.

He and a woman mathematician, Ada Byron, Countess of Lovelace, worked out the punch card system for loading information into the computer. Electronic computers still use his basic math system for their input.

His Analytical Engine was the size of a Volkswagen Bus and was all mechanical.

AWARD Any student who brings a model of an original invention of their own or a model of one they admire will receive a free Power Point CD. (Use Legos, Conexs or any other system)

The CD is Russ McGlenn's Inventor's Workshop Power Point Lessons 1 to16, This CD contains 0ver 2000 pages of colorful illustrations and explanations on how to be your own inventor.

BRING for DISPLAY at 7:00 PM before the Meeting: Anyone who can bring a hand cranked mechanical calculator, a slide rule and an abacus to display would be wonderful. An old key punch machine with cards would be great also. Russ would like one for his museum. Hey! Find that old Texas Instrument (Made in the USA) and bring it to show how the hand held calculators revolutionized our world.

"Metamorphosis"

A Film By Illustra Media
Monarch Metamorphosis


Meeting held at Northwestern College, 3003 North Snelling, Roseville Minnesota
Totino Fine Arts Center, Room F2128 (Old F116)


The Beauty and Design of Butterflies

Throughout history, butterflies have fascinated artists and philosophers, scientists and schoolchildren with their profound mystery and beauty. In Metamorphosis you will explore their remarkable world as few ever have before.

Spectacular photography, computer animation and magnetic resonance imaging open once hidden doors to every stage of a butterfly's life-cycle. From an egg the size of a pinhead to a magnificent flying insect. It is a transformation so incredible biologists have called it "butterfly magic."

The butterfly's superbly engineered body is magnified hundreds of times to reveal compound eyes made of thousands of individual lenses, wings covered with microscopic solar panels, and navigational systems that unerringly guide Monarch butterflies on their annual migration from Canada to Mexico.

How did these extraordinary creatures come into being? Are they the products of a blind, undirected process? Or were they designed by an intelligent cause?

Filmed in North, Central, and South America, Metamorphosis is an unforgettable documentary filled with the joys of discovery and wonder.

A Testimony of God's Word"

Brian Young

Apollo Temple CorinthArchaeologist








Archaeololgical Tools

Meeting held at Northwestern College, 3003 North Snelling, Roseville Minnesota
Nazareth Hall Chapel (the building nearest the lake)


We will look at people and events throughout the Old Testament and show you archaeological evidences today that substantiate the Biblical accounts. In addition, there will be a number of scientific demonstrations that illustrate the truth of God's Word and reveal His power and authority in His creation. Some things we will discuss follow:

Did you know the Bible speaks of a 6 fingered/toed Philistine man and in archaeology they have found a figure of a six fingered/toed man in the same area?

How does the dating used in archaeology give us dates of 9000 years etc. if the earth is only around 6000 years old?

How could God speak things into existence? Is there any scientific support that this could happen?

"The Science of the Flood:
And Why We Care"

Tsunami
Ross Olson

Is a worldwide flood even possible? Is it supported by scientific evidence? And what about the ark and its cargo of animals. Could it really be true? And after all, isn't this an unnecessarily divisive issue that the church ought to ignore to avoid ridicule?

There is actually powerful evidence that the ruling paradigms of geology are not only wrong but have never been tested experimentally and when actual experimental work was done that falsified them, it has been either ignored or dismissed out of hand.

"Our Genetic Deterioration"

Dr. Doyle Holbird
(of Bethany Lutheran College)

Meeting held at Northwestern College, 3003 North Snelling, Roseville Minnesota
Totino Fine Arts Center, Room F2128 (Old F116)


pyrobenzene_dnaIs human evolution still occurring? Are small changes in our genes over time leading to a better human race? What does the science say? In 2005 Dr. John Sanford, a geneticist from Cornell University wrote an insightful book entitled Genetic Entropy and the Mystery of the Genome. In this book he states that the human race rather than evolving in a direction of more complexity is actually evolving in the opposite direction. Since the year 2005 new research has been published. Does this new research support or contradict Sanford's thesis? Have we been evolving new information? Or is the information already optimized in our genome so that changes to our DNA code actually destroy more information than they create?

ROOM CHANGE: Nazareth Hall Chapel (the building nearest the lake)


God created plants to be a perfect food source for all his creatures and when all the creatures and all the plants were still close to their created perfection, it resulted in long and productive lives. Something happened, which the Bible describes as"The Curse." so that Noah was given permission to eat animal food by the end of the flood.

Have you been to the Home School Science Fairs? They are great! Some of the best and brightest K - 12 grade kids in Minnesota were there. You could have learned how stable the Ark was in strong winds, how to, and how not to make yogurt, how weight effects the speed of a sled, and how to get energy from chicken droppings. Over 60 projects were up for display with many passersby stopping to check them out. It was a wonderful opportunity to place a Christian viewpoint of science before the public. For detailed directions e-mail Julie Von Vett vonvett{at}juno.com or call 651-464-4361.

Even if you are NOT a home school student, you may enter the Minnesota TCCSA Fair.

Aging
We are all aging for our entire life. As we mature, changes take place that distinguish the old from the young even if all body parts are working normally. The process of aging is separate from the appearance of disease although disease becomes more common with advancing age. Deterioration and dysfunction were not part of the original creation, and early humans lived over 900 years, retaining physical and mental functions that we now associate with the prime of life. Over many generations, accumulated mutations have caused multiple backup systems to fail and disease to end finally in death.
