Time Session Title Description
8:00 a.m. Registration Opens - Breakfast will be provided by the church.
9:00 a.m. Seminar Welcome
9:10 a.m. Session 1 Your Origins Matter This talk is designed for students in secular schools as well as those working in secular environments. Dr. Sherwin looks at the first 11 chapters of Genesis and explains why they should be taken literally, not allegorically or poetically. He concludes with an appeal to Christians to know why they believe what what they believe and why Genesis should be our rock-solid foundation for the Christian worldview.
9:50 a.m. Break
10:05 a.m. Session 2 The Genesis Flood Genesis clearly teaches a worldwide flood (2 Peter 3:6), and physical evidence confirms it. Geologists study massive, continent-wide sedimentary deposits that could only be produced by widespread, catastrophic flooding. Dr. Sherwin uses the Bible and science to explain why the Genesis Flood could not have been merely a local flood.
10:50 a.m. Break
11:05 a.m. Session 3 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? Not a month goes by that we don't read science headlines like, "Prehistoric human shakes up evolutionary tree" (Reuters, 2021). Do people and chimps really have 98% similar DNA? Who or what was "Lucy"? Were the Neanderthals sub-human? 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.
12:00 p.m. Lunch Break - Food will be provided by the church
1:00 p.m. Session 4 Five Dinosaur Facts A creationist and evolutionist can work together to dig up a dinosaur fossil. They will just disagree on where the dinosaur came from, how long ago it lived, and what killed it. Dr. Sherwin begins this talk by asking children under 12 to identify pictures of some of the more popular "thunder lizards." He then uses the fossil record to show that dinosaurs have always been dinosaurs - they didn't evolve from other reptiles or turn into birds. Evolutionary scientists teach many strange theories about how the dinosaurs died off, but much can be explained by the worldwide Flood of Genesis.
1:50 p.m. Break
2:00 p.m. Question and Answer
2:30 p.m. Seminar Adjourns
Sunday, April 14th, 2024
10:00 a.m. Worship Service Scientific Evidences for Creation Critics regularly say, "Creation is either something you believe or don't believe, but there's no evidence for it." The case for creation is rooted in what Paul teaches in Romans 1 - that God's work and attributes are "clearly seen." Dr. Sherwin describes the tools needed to discern objects that have been made (created) vs. objects that form over time through chance and natural processes. He then provides convincing evidence for creation from the microscopic world (bacteria and molecular machines) and the macroscopic world (animals like the bat and woodpecker).
