A BITTER-SWEET GOOD-BYE (for now). Dr. Bernard Brandstater, 91, has received his crown.
Surrounded by family, retired Anesthesiology Professor, Dr. Bernard Brandstater passed away peacefully Friday night, January 17, at Loma Linda University Hospital. He had recently received surgery to replace two infected heart valves. Pneumonia followed.
Dr. Brandstater spoke to the Creation Science Fellowship of Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa on several occasions, and drove many times from his home in Redlands to hear and meet our visiting guest scientists. He often hosted notable researchers in his own home, where he assembled professors and scientists from Loma Linda University to hear them and to engage in discussion. Dr. Brandstater was also a Logos Research Associate.
We will miss Bernard's deep sonorous voice, graced with his pleasant Australian accent, his quick wit, and his all-consuming enthusiasm of creation science and Intelligent Design. We'll miss him for a while, that is. Reunion is certain, and Resurrection Day is coming, thanks to our Lord Jesus Christ!

Heinz Lycklama, Ph.D. Nuclear Physics, gave a presentation titled, "Evolution's Showstopper."
Description: All attempts by evolutionists to show that first life from non-life by natural processes can be explained by evolution have come to naught for four main reasons: 1) The Law of Biogenesis confirmed by Pasteur in 1864. 2) The failure of experiments like that of Miller in 1953 to show that life can come from non-life. 3) The mathematical probability of forming the first living cell by random chance processes is beyond possible, and 4) The information in a cell (DNA) requires an intelligent mind. The failure of the origin of first life from non-life by natural processes is actually a show stopper for evolution.
