Two Lectures - Origin of Life: Fatal Flaws of Chemical Evolution; Biological Robotics: Incredible Design in Life

Education, For the Family, Religious, Seminar

Evolutionary dogma states that life arose coming from non-living chemicals. However, the more we learn about the complexity of even a ‘simple’ cell, the harder this is to accept. Modern science has shown that all cells contain many tiny machines and other nanotechnology, and the world’s most complex information processing systems. Further, real, observational chemistry works in the opposite direction from the chemical evolution conjecture. And if life can’t start naturalistically, then Darwinian evolution is dead on arrival. We can tell when something shows evidence of having a human designer. So when things in nature show those same characteristics—only on a much more complex level—it makes sense to attribute that to a Designer as well. Dr. Sarfati discusses several evidences of magnificent design in nature, including DNA, molecular machines, the complexity of the cell, and more. He also demolishes arguments of ‘bad design’.

Open Chess Challenge with chess master Dr. Jonathan Sarfati

For the Family, Seminar

Dr. Sarfati will play up to 30 chess players at once. Players are selected on a first come basis and must bring their own chess board to the tournament. Register for this chess challenge at Spectators are welcome. Dr. Sarfati Ph.D., F.M. is an accomplished chess master and a former New Zealand Chess Champion, representing New Zealand in three Chess Olympiads (he drew with Boris Spassky, world champion 1969-1972). In 1988, the International Chess Federation awarded him the title of F.I.D.E. Master (FM). He has played multiple chess matches while blindfolded. He more regularly plays multiple sighted challengers, up to 20 – 30 at a time. He has performed this feat, against up to 12 challengers at once, at several major international conferences. Dr. Sarfati is a scientist with a Ph.D. in physical chemistry and quantum physics. He works for Creation Ministries International as a lecturer, scientist, and writer, showing how Christians can believe the Bible from cover to cover—especially when it comes to Genesis and creation vs. evolution.
