Suzanne Phillips - My God Did This!
Faith is foundational to the Christian experience, yet God has not let Himself without a testimony. Part of this testimony of the creatorship and godliness of God is material, and can be encountered in the study of the natural world. In this presentation, Dr. Phillips discusses some of the realities revealed in the Bible that are also discoverable using the methods of science, and shares her personal experience of amazement in encountering, while studying biochemistry, a God who is truly worthy of worship.
Ronny Nalin - In the Beginning God Created
Does the Bible present an understanding of origins that is obsolete in light of modern advancements in scientific knowledge? Are there better witnesses to truth than the Word of God, when it comes to origins? In this talk, Dr. Nalin shares his testimony of trust in the infinite wisdom of the Word of God, and introduces contributions from other scientists who have dedicated their life to the study of nature and have found that God's revelation is trustworthy in a way that pierces through all times and cultures.
Good Creation and Natural Evil
Despite the creation’s elegance and beauty, it is clear that there is something wrong in the world. Where does all the death and suffering marring the creation come from? How does the Bible help us to understand the current state of the creation and the Creator’s solution to the problem?
Believing the Bible and Believing Science
There is a myth that has been repeated over and over again, yet no amount of repetition can make it true. It says that Christians live in a world of faith that somehow denies reality and that science is only about reality. According to these twin falsehoods, Christians must put aside their faith to be scientists and science has ultimate authority when it comes to the truth about our world and our origin. Join us as we discover why many of the greatest scientists, both past and living, have been led by their Christian faith to be scientists.
