Age of the Creation
Northwest Creation NetworkPublished on Nov 11, 2018
Multimedia Presentation by Chris Ashcraft M.S., M.Ed., MTMS. Apologetics Symposium at Cedar Park Church, Bothell WA. October 10th, 2018 Secular science teaches that the Earth is 4.6 billion years old, but the Biblical genealogy contains dates that only allow for an age of just over 6000 years. This presentation will summarize the Biblical age of the creation and why this issue is important for Bible believers. Numerous physical measurements will then be illustrated, which argue conclusively that the Earth simply cannot be billions of years old. When scientific findings are interpreted within the Biblical worldview, we find there is proof of a recent creation and the flood of Noah.
About the Speaker: Chris Ashcraft is a Christian educator employed as high school science teacher at Cedar Park Christian Schools. Chris has also worked in plant biotechnology. He was a research technician at the Cotton Fiber Production Laboratory at Texas Tech University, then at the Plant Transformation Facility at Oklahoma State University, and lastly was the Plant Transformation Specialist for EDEN Bioscience in Bothell Washington. He obtained a Bachelor of Science in biology from Wayland Baptist University in 1989, a Master of Science in biology from Texas Tech University in 1996, a Master of Education from the University of Washington in 2008, and a Master is Teaching Math and Science from Seattle Pacific University in 2012. Chris moved from research science into the teaching profession to serve God in Christian education. His decision was motivated by the impact that secular science is having on people of faith. Today, close to 50% of Christian students lose their belief in God while attending secular schools. This tendency could be lessened if the Church was better equipped to defend the authority of Biblical teachings (1 Peter 3:15). To be prepared for these challenges, it is important that Churches provide regular educational programs on creation and other Bible apologetics.
