7:15 PM:  Answering the Critics:  The “God of the Gaps” argument

Proponents of naturalism scoff at those of us who posit a Supernatural Creator to explain a scientific phenomenon that cannot, at present, be explained by natural processes.  The so-called “God of the Gaps” argument is roundly dismissed as invalid.  Is it?… and are they guilty of essentially making the same type of argument with no real foundation?

Let’s take a good look at it and make some determinations.


About our speaker:

Marv graduated St. Louis University in 1973 with a Bachelors degree in Marketing.  He currently serves as President of the Missouri Association for Creation and is the Chairman of the Speakers Bureau.  His interest in the Creation/Evolution debate was kindled in 2004 when his 5th grade daughter was laughed at by her classmates and dismissed by her teacher for not believing that the earth is billions of years old.  Since that time Marv has become a diligent student of Biblical Creation and the inherent flaws of the theory of evolution.

Marv attended Creation College hosted by Answers in Genesis in the summer of 2006 and alongside fellow MAC Speaker’s Bureau member Scott Jarus has taught several 13 week courses on Biblical Creation.  Marv uses both absurdity and humor to press important points in his presentations. They are entertaining and thought-provoking for young adults as well as long-time believers.

“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”
1 Pet 3:15
