Supplement to Session 1:

Check this Out: The Nature of Science

Here's a good summary to Session 1 about  observational and historical science.

Supplement to Session 1:

Check this Out: Evolution Refuted

Here's another "Check this Out" video about  science and  the theory of evolution.

Supplement to Session 2:

Why the Speed of Light Cannot be Measured

Physics students learn the speed of light, c, is the same for all inertial observers but no one has ever actually measured it in one direction.

Supplement to Session 2:

Powers of Ten (A Rough Sketch)

Here is a link to the video that Bruce showed during his presentation.

Supplement to Session 2 and 5:

Louie Giglio Talks about the Protein Laminin

Bruce made a reference to this video in Session 2  and John will reference it again in Session 5.

Recording of Session 2:

Light, Space, Time, and Distance

Bruce Schweigerdt of Genesis Forum Academy presents the second session of the 2021 Intersection of Faith & Science Class.  In this session, Bruce speaks about what God created first - Light!   He also addresses the commonly asked question, "If we can see light from stars that are billions of light years away, how is it that the world and universe were only created less than 10,000 years ago?" 

Supplement to Session 5:

Inner Life of the Cell (Narrated)

Journey into the amazing complex world of our cells to get a new appreciation for the beauty, functionality, and creative complexity that God put into each of the 100 trillion cells in your body. 

Supplement to Session 6:

Were the Pyramids Built Before the Flood? (Masoretic Text vs. Original Hebrew)

This is a video explaining whether or not the Egyptian pyramids were built before the flood of Noah's day. It also deals with issues with the accuracy of the Hebrew Masoretic text verses the Greek Septuagint, the Dead Sea Scrolls, the Tower of Babel, the age of the Earth, an extra Cainan in Jesus' genealogy, and the identity of Melchizedek - not in that particular order.

Optional Supplemental Reading Materials:

The Physics of Einstein

A Flood of Evidence:  There are hosts of books and resources on the Flood and Noah’s ark in the creation movement. Yet, there has been a glaring problem in this area for 50 years. There isn’t one basic laymen book on the Flood and Noah's Ark to give answers to those questions asked all the time. Most books are too shallow, too specific, or too technical for the average Christian to read or get much from. 
 

Topics include: 

  • Answers the top questions Answers in Genesis receives about the Flood

  • Addresses issues in a way that should be easy to read and yet still gives the reader some meat to chew on.

  • The perfect “starter” book for those interested in learning more or for believers wanting share the truth with non-believers.

The Genesis Flood:  Over fifty years ago Henry Morris and John Whitcomb joined together to write a controversial book that sparked dialogue and debate on Darwin and Jesus, science and the Bible, evolution and creation—culminating in what would later be called the birth of the modern creation science movement. The Genesis Flood answers many questions about the Flood: Where did the water come from? Where did the water go? How could Noah fit the land animals in the Ark?

Earth’s Catastrophic Past: Step by step, geologist Dr. Andrew Snelling examines evolutionary interpretations of the geologic record and deconstructs the misplaced assumptions on which those interpretations are based. With excellent scholarly research and insight, he then constructs a biblical geologic model for earth history and concludes that the claims of Genesis chapters 1-11 are true.

Topics covered include:

  • The biblical record of the Flood

  • Arguments used against the global Genesis Flood

  • Noah, the Ark, and the animals

  • The framework for a scriptural geology

  • A biblical geologic model of earth history

Frozen in Time:  Author Michael Oard gives plausible explanations of the seemingly unsolvable mysteries about the Ice Age and the woolly mammoths. Many other Ice Age topics are explained including super floods, ice cores, man in the Ice Age, and the number of ice ages.

Much mystery surrounds the now-extinct creature called the woolly mammoth. Author and meteorologist Michael Oard has studied the mammoth and its equally mysterious time period, the Ice Age, for many years and has come to some fascinating conclusions to help lift the fog engulfing the facts. Some of the questions he addresses include:

  • What would cause the summer temperatures of the northern United States and Europe to plummet more than 50 degrees Fahrenheit?

  • Why did mammoths become extinct across the entire earth at the same time as many other large mammals?

  • Why are the mammoth carcasses found generally in standing positions?

  • How could these carcasses still have partially decayed food in their stomachs?

  • How could large lakes exist in what are today very dry, desert-like places?

  • What was the source of the abnormal amount of moisture necessary for heavy snow?

  • What caused the cold summer temperatures and heavy snowfall to persist for hundreds of years?

The Physics of Einstein:  Written by Dr. Jason Lisle, this is a bold new answer to the distant starlight issue. Does light from distant galaxies really take billions of years to reach Earth? Is time-travel possible? Are black holes real? What are some of the weird effects of traveling at near the speed of light? And how do we really know? The physics discovered by Albert Einstein allows us to answer all of these questions. In this easy-to-read book, we learn how Einstein was able to deduce what happens when an object approaches the speed of light. The results are as amazing as they are strange. Designed for readers with no background in physics, this book explores one of the strangest and most fascinating branches of science.

The Lie - Evolution / Millions of Years:  Ken Ham once again takes the lead in pointing out the looming precipice that thousands of church leaders are rushing toward; a denial of the full authority and accuracy of the Bible from its very first verse. Originally published in 1987, The Lie took a bold stand which became prophetic. Ken warned the church about the destructive effects of compromise with evolutionary/millions-of-years ideas. He warned that compromise in Genesis would undermine Scriptural authority in the culture and erode confidence in the infallibility of God’s Word. Today, Christians increasingly doubt the Bible’s reliability. So then do those who are considering placing their faith in Jesus, the Creator.

 

The issues are of critical importance when you realize that today we have Christians not only confused when it comes to Genesis and the age of the earth, but now even the reality of hell, Adam as a real person, and Christ’s own words about creation, marriage, and more. One compromise just leads to another—and it has to end if we want to leave a legacy of faith to future generations!

The Discovery of Genesis:  This linguistic analysis of the Chinese language suggests the ancient Chinese were well aware of the God of Abraham. Readers will discover the possibility that the Chinese were a remnant of the Tower of Babel dispersion. The authors start with the observance of some astonishing points of correspondence between certain characters in the Chinese language and elements of the Genesis account of man's early beginnings. They go on to analyze dozens of the ideographic pictures that make up words in the Chinese language. The evidence they compile supports the thesis that the ancient picture writing of the Chinese language embodies memories of man's earliest days. The characters when broken down into component parts, reflect elements of the story of God and man recorded in the early chapters of Genesis. Man and woman, the garden, the institution of marriage, the temptation and fall, death, Noah's flood, the tower of Babel - they are all there in the tiny drawings and strokes that make up the Chinese characters.

The Answers Magazine: Each family-friendly issue is packed with relevant articles, stunning photos, and illustrations that reveal the latest creation science news while equipping you for the culture war in society today.
