Tower of Babel - Part 1
Previous Meeting September 15, 2015
Guest Speaker: Roger Lenard
Dr. Lenard discussed the history of exploration of Mars - from the 1960's probes to todays landers/rovers. Plus insight on future exploration vehicles. He detailed where the landers are on the surface as well as the topology of the planet itself. Some insights: there is a lot of water on Mars - in the soil; the atmosphere is an extensive mix of gasses; no life nor precursors have been detected. (There is a minute amount of methane, but the source is unknown.) In the past, liquid water had flowed on the surface! An interesting and informative talk.
Previous Meeting: August 18, 2015
Guest Speaker: Mariano Grinbank
Mariano's talk, "Atheism explained and exposed" compares that which Atheists claim versus the actual facts of the matter - with a bottom line approach - when all of the philosophic and scientific façades behind which atheism hides are removed.

DVD Showing: "Already Gone" - Ken Ham
"The trends are frightening, but this video shows how to win back our families, our churches, and our world!
The next generation is already calling it quits on traditional church. Next Sunday, look around, two thirds of the young people in your church are already disengaged from the message they are hearing. And it’s not just happening on the nominal fringe; it’s happening in the most solid “Bible-believing” churches.
Shortly after the video was recorded, the book, "Already Gone" written by Britt Beemer, Todd Hillard, and Ken Ham was published.
If you look around in your church today, two-thirds of the young people who are sitting among us have already left in their hearts; soon they will be gone for good.

A Hebrew Worldview-based definition of Life and Death
Speaker: Kent Powderly
This was a most interesting and informative talk about the 'meaning' of words, how culture affects language, and how the re-definition of terms affects culture. "Un-complicated", "Simple" and "Simplistic" have similar meanings, but rather different (emotional) connotations. As do the words "ethics" and "values" - but one is Biblically-based, the other is secular. Kent develops word usage and meaning in languages and their effects on our culture.

The Tower of Babel - Implications and Evidence of Early Advanced Culture - Part 1
Part 2: October 2015 Meeting
Speaker: Ray Mondragon
Genesis chapter 10 outlines the descendents of the sons of Noah (Post-flood) and the territories they occupied. They formed clans and eventually nations. Genesis 11:1 states "Now the whole earth had one language and the same words." (ESV) We note that Chapter 11 relates the 'event' - the confusion of languages. And that Chapter 10 relates the results: the scattering of the tribes and formation of nations.

At our February meeting we presented the new video by Creation Ministries International:
Video: "Evolution's Achilles' Heels"
From the creation.com website:
"A major book and DVD documentary project—completed!"
"Building on the huge response to 2012’s 'Question Evolution' campaign, CMI undertook a major new offensive to take even more ground in the battle to proclaim the truth of the Bible. The aim was to simply and concisely expose evolution’s fatal weaknesses.
As this was a DVD / 'Movie' presentation, there are no PowerPoints of this meeting.
