6:30 PM: Early Bird presentation The Biggest Challenges to Evolution
MAC welcomes special guest Brian Mariani of the Alpha Omega Institute. www.discovercreation.org
7:30 PM: Brian Mariani presents 5 Common Deceptions in Our Culture regarding God, the Bible, science, and Creation.
Deception #1: The Bible is not completely reliable.
Deception #2: Evolution is proven science; Creation is religious belief.
Deception #3: Science has proven evolution and an old earth.
Deception #4: The Definition of Science cannot allow for God.
Deception #5: Evolution and the Bible are compatible.
This presentation will create audience interaction as we cover questions like:
· Why is Creation important?
· Do we really believe God and the Bible?
· What can you do about spreading Creation?
· How Big is Your God?
Within this presentation, Brian will be sharing his personal testimony and passion for Creation Training. He will explain why he is in the creation evangelism ministry and will present Alpha Omega Institute’s vision for their new training program, the Discover Creation Training Institute (DCTI).
About our guest speaker:
Brian and Aimee Mariani were both raised with a solid foundation and a deep passion for God’s word, science, and God’s Creation. Aimee was homeschooled and has spent many years in leadership teaching campers about God’s creation at a Christian living history camp. In public schools and secular universities, Brian saw the deception of evolution all around him. Brian attended the University of Illinois for two years while studying physics engineering but realized that God was calling him to teach and encourage students as a science teacher and thus transferred to Illinois State University where he received his physics teaching degree. Brian and Aimee then met at Jackson Hole Bible College, which strengthened their friendship, creation worldview, and a solid, Biblical foundation for life. Brian also had the opportunity to research and write the Biblical perspective of ancient cultures as a contributing author of The Genius of Ancient Man. Brian later taught the credibility of creation and the pervasiveness of evolution from a Biblical perspective as a science teacher at a Christian high school. Brian and Aimee joined AOI because they have a passion to teach others about God through history, science, and His creation.
“but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence”
