Creation Geologist from the UK Visits St Louis

MAC is excited to welcome Paul Garner, of Biblical Creation Trust in the UK, to St Louis!

Paul is a long-time creation researcher and speaker, and has been involved in some of the most cutting-edge creation research projects in both the USA and his home country. Paul will be delivering several presentations and leading 1 field trip over the weekend, and will be the featured speaker at July’s MAC meeting. You won’t want to miss this rare opportunity to hear from a veteran creationist from across “the pond”!

Our Frozen Past: The Ice Age and the Genesis Flood

This illustrated talk explores some of the mysteries surrounding the ice age – What caused it? How long did it last? Was there more than one? – and shows that the biblical Flood provides the key to answering these questions.

Coal by Catastrophe: Can the Flood Explain It?

What is coal and how did it form? Does it require millions of years? This talk examines the geological evidence concerning the origin and nature of the Carboniferous coal beds. Multiple lines of evidence show that the coal-forming plants were transported by water before burial and did not grow in place as the conventional, long-age theory supposes. The global Flood described in the Bible provides a useful framework for understanding how these widespread coal layers were formed.

Claws, Jaws and Dinosaurs

Christians have many questions about dinosaurs. Where did they come from? How long ago did they live? And what – if anything – do their fossils have to do with the global Flood in the days of Noah? This talk will seek to answer many of these questions, explaining how we know what we know about dinosaurs, the history of their discovery and their place in biblical history – as well as the fascinating story of the catastrophic burial of thousands of dinosaurs now being excavated on a ranch site in Wyoming.

99% Missing : Where on Earth did the (Geological) Time Go?

Biblical creationists face what we might call a ‘plausibility problem’. Is it credible to suggest that the earth might be only six thousand years old, rather than 4.6 billion years old, or that the rock layers studied by geologists were laid down in a short time during a global flood? This talk will address the plausibility problem with evidence from the sedimentary rock record that is best explained by the young-age model.
