Dr. Randy Guliuzza, Dr. Frank Sherwin, Dr. Brian Thomas, Dr. Jake Hebert, and Dr. Tim Clarey will speak on biblical creation at the God's Grand Design Conference held at Flint Baptist Church in Flint, Texas. Was the universe invented by the unknowing, uncaring, purposeless laws of nature? Many scientists believe that the extraordinary design demonstrated throughout the universe is the result of random processes operating over eons of time. But Bible-believing scientists affirm the book of Genesis and its message of a Creator who designed the intricate engineering efficiencies into this world. That belief system not only fits scientific observations but also gives creation-based scientists beneficial insight as they conduct research. The God’s Grand Design Conference will show how true science supports a young universe created by the greatest Designer of all, the Lord Jesus Christ.

Dates: Sep 15, 2021 - Sep 19, 2021

Saturday, September 18 - Main Conference
Time Speaker Session Description
9:00 a.m. Dr. Jake Hebert Adult Session
"Our Young Universe"
Take a virtual tour of our solar system and beyond! This presentation includes spectacular images of celestial bodies in our “local” celestial neighborhood. Learn how well-known objects in our own solar system present problems for evolutionary theories and confirm recent creation.
9:00 a.m. Dr. Brian Thomas Youth Session
"Fossils: Evolution or Flood?"
In this interactive presentation, Dr. Thomas shows certain fossils with features that refute gradual evolution and slow fossilization through evidence of purposeful design and rapid burial.
9:00 a.m. Mrs. Renee Clarey & Prof. Tom Meyer Children’s Session
"The Days of Creation"
10:00 a.m. Break
10:20 a.m. Dr. Brian Thomas Adult Session
"Adam, Not Apes"
Polls show that illustrations of ape-like human ancestors convince more Americans of evolution than any other subject. Dr. Thomas shows how to place ape-man candidate fossils into three Genesis-friendly categories.
10:20 a.m. Dr. Frank Sherwin Youth Session
"Human Evolution"
The media, movies, and nature programs overwhelmingly emphasize the idea that humans evolved from primate ancestors. But what do genetics and the fossil record say? Do people and chimps really have 98% similar DNA? Who or what was “Lucy”? Were the Neanderthals subhuman? Are our wisdom teeth, appendices, and tonsils just evolutionary leftovers? Dr. Sherwin’s non-technical presentation confirms that people have always been people, just as Genesis says.
10:20 a.m. Mrs. Renee Clarey & Dr. Tim Clarey Children’s Session
"The Global Flood"
11:10 a.m. Break for lunch Special Presentation with Prof. Tom Meyer
“The Archaeology of the Holy Land”
Prof. Tom Meyer combines history, research, explorations and personal experience of living in the Land of the Bible for 1,000 days to reveal fascinating information concerning the archaeology and historical geography of Jerusalem.
12:30 p.m. Dr. Tim Clarey Adult Session
"The Truth About the Global Flood"
In this presentation, Dr. Clarey shows how sedimentary evidence across several continents confirms the occurrence of a global flood. He presents oil industry data compiled into maps and diagrams that illustrate the progression of the Flood and match the biblical narrative. He provides biblically based scientific explanations for large-scale sedimentary deposits that were rapidly formed by catastrophic activity. This abundant evidence supports a worldwide flood that happened just thousands of years ago.
12:30 p.m. Dr. Brian Thomas Youth Session
"How Creatures Adapt"
Charles Darwin’s ideas about how creatures change have influenced us more than the actual ways that creatures change. Stunning animal adaptations reveal new hallmarks of handiwork.
12:30 p.m. Mrs. Renee Clarey & Dr. Jake Hebert Children’s Session
"Dinosaurs"
Many Christians are unsure how dinosaurs fit into the Bible. Dr. Hebert explains how the Bible easily makes sense of the historical and scientific evidence about dinosaurs. He also demonstrates how to develop a biblical worldview.
1:20 p.m. Break
1:40 p.m. Dr. Randy Guliuzza Adult Session
"Replacing Darwin’s Sacred Imposter"
We will learn about the latest creationist framework for explaining adaptation that integrates with a discussion of how design-based biological explanations expose the inherent idolatry of the concept of natural selection.
1:40 p.m. Dr. Tim Clarey Youth Session
"Feathered Dinosaurs, and Other Evolutionary Fairy Tales"
Most popular movies, TV shows, and books portray dinosaurs with feathers and claim they have an evolutionary relationship with birds. This talk dispels these myths and presents the science of dinosaurs as found in the rocks themselves. Much of what is taught in public schools is not based on the evidence. Dinosaurs did not evolve into birds, did not develop feathers, did not have evolutionary ancestors, and did not live millions of years ago. Dinosaurs were designed fully-formed as a unique group of reptile kinds, just as the Bible describes in Genesis.
1:40 p.m. Dr. Frank Sherwin Children’s Session
"Scientists of the Faith"
We have all heard of Newton, Kepler, Boyle, Faraday and others whose original scientific discoveries and research have paved the way for later generations. What is not well-known and in fact has been hidden or dismissed, is that most of these great scientists were also men of God and His Word. Learn ‘the rest of the story’ when it comes to the faith and dedication these people had to Christ and Scripture.
2:30 p.m. Break
2:50 p.m. Q&A with Drs. Guliuzza, Sherwin, Thomas, Hebert, and Clarey
3:15 p.m. Conclusion
