Don Johnson, Ph.D. (Computer and Information Sciences), Ph.D. (Chemistry), gave a presentation titled,
"THE FLOOD, CATASTROPHISM, FOSSILS, AND TIME."
About our speaker: Don Johnson earned Ph.D.s in both Computer & Information Sciences from the University of Minnesota and in Chemistry from Michigan State University. He was a senior research scientist for 10 years in pharmaceutical and medical/scientific instrument fields, served as president and technical expert in an independent computer consulting firm for many years, and taught 20 years in universities in Wisconsin, Minnesota, California, and Europe. Since "retiring," he has done consulting, speaking, and writing. He has made presentations across the US and on most continents. Dr. Johnson is the author of Programming of Life, and consulted for and was featured in the outstanding documentary films, "Programming of Life I," and "Program of Life II.".
Dr. Joseph Kezele, M.D., gave a presentation titled, "PROGRAMMED FILLING AND SPECIATION: HAVING FUN WITH DOGS."
This is a fun talk featuring dogs that first makes the distinction between species and the “biblical kind”. It then reviews what Scripture has to say about Noah’s flood and the animals, each “according to its kind”. Artificial selection (breeding) and then natural selection and programmed filling are discussed, explaining how natural selection is believed to happen by evolutionists, and how genetics demonstrates programmed filling. Then the post flood world, including the single Ice Age is presented, with the explanation of how that brought about the environmental pressures to trigger rapid speciation. A final contrast is given between the demand of evolution for new information to be added to an initially very small gene pool by random chance events through mutations causing the development of new kinds, and the biblical concept of starting with a large gene pool, which is divided by migration and natural selection leading to loss of genetic information to cause change within each kind.
About our speaker: Joseph Kezele studied the sciences and music at the University of Arizona, while earning his B.A. in Russian in 1971, and his M.D. in 1975. He then completed a Pediatric Residency and practiced Emergency Medicine for 25 years in the Phoenix area, and was a diplomate of the American Board of Emergency Medicine and fellow of the American College of Emergency Physicians. He is now retired from the practice of medicine, serves as President of the Arizona Origin Science Association, is Adjunct Professor at Arizona Christian University in Phoenix, teaching Human Genetics, Cell and Molecular Biology, Pathophysiology, Organic Chemistry and Creation Science Apologetics. Dr, Kezele has also been named a Logos Research Associate. He serves as Chairman of Deacons and teaches Creation Science Evangelism at Black Mountain Baptist Church in Cave Creek, Arizona. He has participated in over 20 foreign mission trips, teaching medicine, standard evangelism and creation science evangelism in India, Zambia, Mexico, Russia, Latvia, Lithuania, the Ukraine, Bosnia-Herzegovina, and Armenia. Dr. Kezele is one of the principle presenters in the Institute for Creation Research’s 4 DVD series Made in His Image. He is scheduled to return to the Ukraine this May for three weeks to teach a series on Creation Science Evangelism as part of the activities prompted by the proclamation of the President of the Ukraine recognizing the 400th anniversary of Martin Luther sparking the reformation in Germany.
