TALK DESCRIPTIONS

The Ice Age: Only the Bible Can Explain It!

The Ice Age is a major mystery of mainstream Earth science, the difficulty of which is analyzed

in the talk. The evidence indicates that the Ice Age occurred after the Flood, so the Flood must

have caused a climate change right afterwards that resulted in a rapid Ice Age. Many details of

the Ice Age have been worked out from over 30 years of research, such as it was only about

700 years long, there was only one ice age, the Greenland and Antarctic Ice Sheet mostly built

up during this time, animals of the Ice Age were a mix of warmth-loving and cold-loving types,

the existence of big lakes in now dry areas of the Earth, and the mass extinction at the end of

the Ice Age.

Whatever Happened to the Woolly Mammoths?

This talk shows that the woolly mammoth lived during the Ice Age; they did not die early in the

Flood by a quick freeze. It focuses on the mammoths in Siberia and answers many mysteries of

why they would live in Siberia, what they would eat, and how they died. Many other mammoth

mysteries are also answered by the post-Flood rapid Ice Age, such as why the lowlands of

Siberia, Alaska, and the Yukon were not glaciated; why there were so many large animals so far

north; why some mammoth carcasses are found in a generally standing position, having

suffocated; and why some have broken bones.

Is Man the Cause of Global Warming?

Global warming seems to be the major topic of concern by many environmentalists, the media,

and politicians. There is a huge amount of hysterical sounding statements made by many, and

there are many contradictory statements floating around in the culture. This talk goes first into

the facts and second what are likely facts, based on the scientific literature. From this data

analysis, we can clear away much of the fog on this issue. We can understand what is going on

with this hot button topic.

Dinosaur Tracks, Eggs, and Scavenged Bonebeds Explained Early in the Flood

Despite being able to explain many big-picture observations of the rocks and fossils, there are

still a few hundred earth science challenges to the Flood model of earth history. One of these

challenges is the existence of billions of dinosaur tracks, millions of dinosaur eggs, and

scavenged bonebeds on thousands of feet of Flood strata. Such observations seem to imply too

much time to have happened early in the Flood before dinosaurs were all dead by Day 150.

However, a closer examination of the bonebeds, tracks, and eggs indicates many unusual

features for a uniformitarian environment. Unique features of bonebeds include the observations

that some dinosaur graveyards are huge, monospecific, and lack babies and young juveniles.

Unique features of dinosaur tracks are that practically all trackways are straight, tracks are

always on flat bedding planes, and baby and young juvenile tracks are rare. Several unusual

features observed with dinosaur eggs are that they are practically always laid on flat bedding

planes, despite their significant porosity that would result in the death of the embryo, and nest

structures are very rare. Such observations from all across the world suggest that another

hypothesis is needed.

An hypothesis will be presented to explain the dinosaur data, which has been previously

suggested in the creationist literature. This is the BEDS (Briefly Exposed Diluvial Sediments)

hypothesis, which postulates that after rapid sedimentation during the Genesis Flood, the

distance between the top of the sediment and the Floodwater surface became shallow. Such

sediments would then become vulnerable to exposure by local drops in relative sea level

caused by five mechanisms operating during the early Flood. There would of course be local

rises in relative sea level inundating the BEDS. There could be hundreds of local sea level

oscillations of various amplitudes and periods on BEDS during the first 150 days of the Flood

due to all five mechanisms. Interference patterns from all the mechanisms would reinforce sea

level lows and highs.

Dinosaurs swimming in the water, finding refuge on log mats, or trapped on higher refuges then

could walk on BEDS and lay eggs. A gentle, local rise in relative sea level would cover up the

tracks, eggs, and dead dinosaurs, preserving and eventually lithifying or fossilizing them.

Because of all the oscillations in local sea level, there could be multiple layers of tracks and

eggs at any one location.

The BEDS hypothesis also can potentially explain a number of other seemingly puzzling

features associated with dinosaur tracks and eggs, such as true mudcracks, raindrop imprints,

coprolites, ripple marks, paleosols, burrows and tracks of invertebrates, possible social insect

nests, and bird tracks. BEDS can also explain these features when not associated with dinosaur

tracks.

Is Evolution a Fact? (versions for adult and children grades 3 to 12)

Although the culture claims evolution is a fact, this talk goes into three main reasons why it

cannot be a fact. First, evolution cannot be a fact by the definitions of evolution and science.

Macroevolution is not observed going on today, so it is not science. Proofs of evolution are in

the area of microevolution, which is really the diversification of the genetic material already

created in the organisms and is not real evolution. Macroevolution is simply the history (or

religion as some call it) of the atheistic worldview.

Second, evolution cannot be a fact because modern biology shows that every organism is vastly

too complex to have evolved by chance, even with the pathetic mechanisms of mutations and

natural selection. Furthermore, macroevolution is not seen in the fossil record because

complexity is tremendous, right from the oldest organisms and the lack of the millions of

transitional fossils required by macroevolution. Closed shelled mollusks also show that the rocks

containing the fossils were deposited rapidly and worldwide.

Third, evolution cannot be a fact because it is contradicted in the Bible. Genesis 1 states that

organisms were created by kinds and to reproduce within their own kinds and not into some

other kind, which is evolution. Plus the order of creation contradicts the evolutionary order

twelve times. The Bible also teaches and summarized in Rom 5:12 that there was no death of

man or the animals until man sinned, while evolution states that there has been mass death,

survival of the fittest, etc. hundreds of millions of years before man supposedly evolved at the

very end.
