The founder of the Creation Museum and the Answers in Genesis organization as well as an astrophysicist who refutes traditional evolutionary theories will headline a week of engagements in February. The events are free and open to the public and are part of the Origins Conference Feb. 12 - 19. The events are designed to provide practicing Christians with answers to Biblical truths regarding logical scientific fallacies.
“We know that practicing Christians are in conflict with theories that are taught regarding evolutionary theories and how the universe occurred,” said Bernie Gray, the chairman of the Origins Conference. “We know that humans are not accidents of nature but in fact are the creation of God who has a plan for each and every human being and his or her family. The conference will set Christians free from doubt and unbelief and enable them to use the power of God’s word to keep them and their children firmly founded in the faith.”
About 100 churches in a five-state region are actively participating in the weeklong conference that will include engagements at area churches, colleges and two significant events at Johnson City’s Freedom Hall Civic Center on Feb. 13 and 14.
Featured speakers include Ken Ham, Founder of Answers in Genesis and the Creation Museum and Dr. Jason Lisle, an astrophysicist and refuter of evolutionary theories. Ham’s Creation Museum, near Cincinnati, OH, welcomed more than 700,000 visitors in its first two years and is one of America’s leading Christian conference speakers and broadcast talk show guests.
Dr. Jason Lisle is also a noted expert in creationism and author of the book The Ultimate Proof. “Few are willing to accept what the Creator Himself has said about the beginning of all things as recorded in the pages of Scripture, and as confirmed by scientific evidence,” explained Lisle.
The Origins Conference will include a major event to be held on Sunday, February 13 at 3 p.m. that is free and open to the public at Freedom Hall Civic Center in Johnson City. Both Ken Ham and Dr. Lisle will provide clear and distinct examples of how worldviews that embrace evolution are opposed to God’s written account of human history. The two will also provide answers that can strengthen Christian families in today’s world.
On Monday, Feb. 14 at Freedom Hall, Ham will host school-age children and their parents with additional discussions on the topic. At 10 a.m., elementary-age children and their parents will meet and at 1 p.m., middle school and high school-age children and their parents will meet.
