AT the website of Christian News Wire, “the most used and most recognized distributor of religious content press releases in the nation” — they offer this list of their clients — we read some exciting news: Jacksonville Conference Confronts Creation-Evolution Debate. Here are some excerpts, with bold added by us:
The Institute for Creation Research, the premiere creation science institution in the world, is announcing the first of its 2009 Demand the Evidence conferences, to be held in Jacksonville, Florida on October 9-10.
“Demand the Evidence”? Of what, creationism? Let’s read on:
Scientists, educators, theologians, and even state politicians have wrestled with the creation-evolution debate in recent years, but which theory is correct? Creation? Evolution? Intelligent Design?
Does it matter whether the earth was created in six days or six billion years? Where does the evidence lead?
Yes! Inquiring minds want to know. We continue:
Held at the downtown auditorium of First Baptist Church Jacksonville, the Demand the Evidence Conference will feature sessions on both science and faith during the Friday/Saturday event.
Attendees will learn biblical and scientific evidences for the accuracy and authority of Genesis, the complex design of the human body, the facts that support recent creation, the flaws in Darwin’s theory of evolution, and much more.
This is wonderful. It’s about time we had an opportunity to learn the truth. Here’s more:
Speakers include Dr. Mac Brunson, Dr. Henry Morris, Dr. Gary Parker, and Dr. Randy Guliuzza. A Q&A panel discussion will be held on Saturday.
What a lineup! Dr. Mac Brunson, Senior Pastor of the First Baptist Church in Jacksonville. Hey, Stephen Wise, creationist member of Florida’s state Senate, belongs to that church.
Not only that, but we’re promised a rare appearance by Henry Morris, who died three years ago. We suspect that his son, John Morris, is probably going to fill the void. But you never know with these creationists.
The Institute for Creation Research has for nearly 40 years conducted scientific research regarding origins and earth history.
Yes, and they’ve got a lot to show for those 40 years. Hey, if you want to attend this once-in-a-lifetime learning experience, all the sign-up info is at the link we gave you at the start of this post.
How can you turn down an opportunity like this? Mark your calendar — October 9-10. See you there!
