Creation Presentation with Chris Ashcraft from Northwest Creation Network in Bothell, WA.
When: March 19, 2015
7:00 – 8:30 PM – Planet of the Apes?
Evolutionists argue that humans have descended from ape-like ancestors, thereby reducing humanity to the status of a primate animal. Darwin’s seminal theory led inexorably to this conclusion. However, the Bible clearly states that we were created distinct from the animals, and “in the image of God”. This presentation examines the various “ape-men” used to support human evolution; including Neanderthals, Homo erectus, and Australopithecines. Were there really ape-men or is the infamous missing-link still missing?
Chris Ashcraft is a Christian educator employed as high school science teacher at Cedar Park Christian Schools. Formerly, Chris was a research technician, specialized in plant tissue culture, and genetic transformation technology. He served as a research technician at the Cotton Fiber Production Laboratory at Texas Tech University, he then provided technical support at the Plant Transformation Facility at Oklahoma State University, and lastly was employed as 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.
