Cell biology has revealed a microscopic world operating at a level of
technological sophistication far beyond anything devised by man.
This previously invisible aspect of the creation offers unmistakable evidence of intelligent design through innumerable examples of irreducible & specified complexity. Inside each & every organism reside bio-mechanical systems & molecular machines that Darwin & his contemporaries could never have imagined. Even today, much of what is happening inside cells is still not understood and yet evolutionists hold fast that these remarkable constructs developed without God.
These two contrasting views of the cell provide poignant illustration of how worldviews impact our interpretation of physical evidence. This presentation discusses the cell as it relates to these opposing views & describes some of these important cellular features which offer testimony to the glory of the Creator.Free AdmissionAges: Jr. High Youth - Adult ~ Church/School Groups WelcomeWONDERS OF THE CELL Kids Program Ages 5-12Available at Boise & Ontario locations - R.S.V.PEMMETT Wednesday April 23rd 7:00 PMFirst Baptist Church 126 S.

Chris has worked as 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, provided technical support at the Plant Transformation Facility at Oklahoma State
University & and worked as a Plant Transformation Specialist for EDEN Bioscience. Chris has a Bachelor of Science in biology from Wayland Baptist University, a Master of Science in biology from Texas Tech University, a Master of Education from the University of Washington & a Master in Teaching Math/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 could be lessened if the Church was better equipped to defend the authority of Biblical teachings (1 Peter 3:15). It is important that Churches provide regular educational programs on creation and other Bible apologetics. Chris is the organizer of the monthly Apologetics Symposium at Cedar Park Christian Church & the annual Seattle Creation Conference. He also speaks regularly at churches, Christian schools, teacher conventions, and creation organizations. He is the founder of the Northwest Creation Network ministry and the CreationWiki internet encyclopedia where he serves as senior administrator.

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 heaven 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.
