Creation Presentation with Ralph Seelke at Northwoods Creation Association in Ashland, WI.
WHEN: December 10, 2018
7:00 PM – EPIGENETICS
WHERE: Wisconsin Indianhead Technical College
CONTACT: Jim Orme
TOPIC: Epigenetics – how your choices can affect your children’s genes and how “truth” changes in science!
Epigenetics has to do with things that are inherited, but NOT directly inherited through our genes. What, you say! I thought that DNA was the ONLY way we could inherit characteristics! Our thinking on this has changed greatly in the last 25 years or so. It is an interesting study of how “scientific truth” can change. Epigenetics is also of real practical importance, because our behavior can affect our children’s genetic inheritance!
