ABOUT THE TOPIC
We have seen the publication of some bestselling books over the last ten years by some very aggressive atheists. They include "The God Delusion", "God is not Great", and "Letter to a Christian Nation." The four most popular atheist writers (Dawkins, Hitchens, Harris, and Dennett)
are often referred to as the "Four Horsemen."
They make some outrageous claims about the Christian Faith, Creationism and Evolutionism.
In this talk we address some of their more popular claims such:
Faith is blind
Atheism is not a religion
Science has disproved GodThere is no evidence for God
Religion poisons everything
Evil and suffering disprove God
Morality does not come from God
Belief in Miracles is superstition
Many books have been written by Christian writers refuting the claims made by these atheist writers.
"Gunning For God", "The Atheist Delusion", and "Letter From a Christian Nation"are some of the more popular responses to the claims of these new atheists. We examine the claims made by the atheists, and respond to them one by one. We conclude that the atheists have become much more aggressive, but offer no new evidence for their belief system.
Theism offers a more rational answer than atheism. The New Atheists don't have a case!

ABOUT THE SPEAKER
Dr. Heinz Lycklama earned a Bachelor’s degree in Engineering Physics (1965) and a Ph. D. degree in experimental Nuclear Physics (1969) from McMaster University in Canada. Since then he has worked in the telecommunications and computer software industries at Bell Telephone Laboratories in NJ and at Interactive Systems Corporation in CA as an individual contributor and in management positions. In 1992 Dr. Lycklama formed Open Systems Technology Associates (OSTA) and now offers his technology management consulting services to various start-ups in the high technology industry. Challenged in his Christian faith by what he was taught in university in the 1960’s, Dr. Lycklama has always maintained an active interest in the Creation v. Evolution controversy. As his children reached school age and began to ask questions about what they were taught in school, he became more involved in researching the topic of Creation v. Evolution. He has developed a series of lectures onthis topic over the years and presented the material in Sunday school classes, to college students, during church services, at Bible Schools, and other venues in Greece, Croatia, Bulgaria, Serbia, Cameroon and Thailand, as well as in Canada and the USA. Heinz and his wife Gerda live in Arlington, WA. They were both born in theNetherlands, emigrated to Canada after WWII with their families, married in 1964, and then emigrated to the US in 1969. They have 5 children and 16 grandchildren.UPCOMING EVENTS

What is FOUNDATIONS IN GENESIS OF IDAHO/OREGON?
Foundations In Genesis of Idaho/Oregon, also known as ‘FIGI’ (pronounced fig-ee), is a local science organization that hosts Adult and Children's science seminars and geological field adventures. By bringing in scientists who are experts in their fields, FIGI Seminars and Field Adventures offer fascinating information and cutting edge evidence which encourages critical thinking and an understanding of factual science which are key in what worldview (biblical or evolutionary) a person chooses.
Here are some important verses from the Bible about creation:
"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth." from The Holy Bible, Genesis 1:1
"For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible..." Colossians 1:16
"For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea and all that is in them..." Exodus 20:11
What does science tell us about the scriptures above? Did everything evolve millions of years ago from a big bang or are we living on a relatively young earth created by God?
Please join us. Our seminars are lay people friendly and are offered at no charge. Our geological field adventures consist of local one day trips and camping expeditions and costs are minimal. Check out our website for a history of our past seminars and Field Adventures and for upcoming events.
