How does the apparent age of the universe (whatever you think this might be) relate to the Biblical account of creation? Does the so-called “starlight travel problem” (the BIG-ness of the universe) stand in the way of your accepting the Biblical account of creation at face value? Is the “Big Bang” hypothesis (pick any of its many variant forms) viable, or is it bankrupt, with more BAND-AIDs than healthy skin? Dr. Barbara Helmkamp will address these questions in an introductory-level talk about cosmology and creation.
Dr. Barbara S. Helmkamp has a Ph.D. in physics from Louisiana State University and a B.S. Engineering in physics from Colorado School of Mines, and she worked as a petrophysical engineer for the Shell Oil Companies between undergraduate and graduate studies. She completed the Lutheran Teacher Colloquy from Concordia University Texas while teaching at St. Mark Lutheran Church & School in Houston, where she was subsequently called. She is currently on the faculty of Veritas Scholars Academy (V.S.A. is an online school out of Lancaster, PA). She also taught at Credo Academy (Credo is a home school co-op in Lone Tree, CO) as well as having overseen her daughters’ high school educations from home. Her older daughter graduated with Honors from V.S.A. in 2015 and is currently a sophomore at University of Iowa, and her younger daughter graduates Highest Honors in June and will attend University of Wyoming in the fall. Barbara, her husband Bob, and their daughters are members of Christ Our Savior Lutheran Church in Elizabeth, Colorado.
