  • Featured Presenter: Dr. Terry Mortenson "Creation vs. Evolution: Is Genesis Relevant?"

    Feature Presentations - Aug 25th at 12:00pm – 1:00pm

    Dr. Terry Mortenson "Creation vs. Evolution: Is Genesis Relevant?"

    with Terry Mortenson

    These powerful presentations from Answers in Genesis’ dynamic speakers examine a variety of topics including the relevance of Genesis in today’s world.

    Many people today think that Genesis is an ancient book that isn’t important and many think the early chapters of Genesis about the origin and age of the earth are not trustworthy. Many people think that it doesn’t matter what we think about evolution and millions of years. Dr. Mortenson presents some of the Biblical, moral and scientific reasons for believing that Genesis is vitally relevant to what is taught and happening in our world. What is ultimately at stake is our view of morality, the meaning of life, the truth of the Gospel and the trustworthiness and authority of the Bible.

    This event is free with paid museum admission or Museum membership. Seating is first come first served.

    with Bodie Hodge

    These powerful presentations from Answers in Genesis’ dynamic speakers examine a variety of topics including the relevance of Genesis in today’s world.

    Dinosaurs are seen as an icon of evolution and millions of years. In fact, they are used to promote millions of years to children even at very early ages, as evidenced from the many children’s books on dinosaurs. Bodie will focus on answering some common questions about dinosaurs and teaching Christians to look at dinosaurs from a biblical perspective, instead of borrowing from the non-Christian view of dinosaurs.
