Under government and church orders to cancel public gatherings, the Creation Science Fellowship of Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa conducted its first ever meeting by teleconference, using ZOOM.
Jim Pamplin B.A. (Biology), gave a PowerPoint slide show of his January trip to Wadi Ze'elim in Israel to serve as a field assistant to geologist, Dr. Steve Austin, a Logos Research Associate. Their objective was to study "seismites," physical records of ancient earthquakes locked in Dead Sea sediments, now exposed above sea level along the shores of the shrinking lake.
About Jim Pamplin: Active in creation science circles, Jim has led the Creation Science Fellowship of Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa since 2002. Befriended by a number of Bible-believing scientists, when several found themselves displaced from the research they loved, Jim introduced them to Pastor Chuck Smith of Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa. After prayerful consideration and with encouragement from Pastor Chuck and the Calvary Chapel board, the group incorporated as Logos Research Associates. Jim now serves LogosRA as office administrator, (i.e., paper-shuffler/pencil-pusher/bean-counter) and as Secretary-treasurer to the Board of Directors. He and Sue, his bride of 50 years, are missionaries of Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa.
David Phillipps gave a presentation, titled, "DESIGN REVISITED."
Creationists and I.D. proponents have suggested for a very long time that there is evidence for design in nature . Evolutionists have reacted very negatively to such evidence and further argued that there are examples of what they say is poor design no creator would ever make. In more recent years a wealth of new books have come out refuting the notion of poor design or no design at all. Specific examples of design in nature were provided.
